12 oz bottle from "Lifesource" in Salem. $1.79. Pours a typical pils gold colour, the head is very small and goes in a matter of seconds leaving a ring. Certainlly smells authentic, lots of golden caramel malts along side grassy sharp hop..very nice. Taste has the hops more prominent and juicy but the malts are still strong, very good indeed! Good mouth feel..well carbonated and not watery. Wonders never cease!! I was expecting this to be another plodding attempt at a Pilsner by a Oregon brewery but this was very good indeed.

Pours a yellow straw color with very little head

Smell is of wet horse blanket, crisp fresh grains, and light hop aromas.

Taste is very crisp and light with a nice bitterness that lasts throughout. Kind of like a budweiser without the rice and corn, and with more bittering hops. Bordering on spicy from the hops. This is the way I like pils to be, they shouldn't have the silly little sweet flavors and adjuncts that most do. Light , refreshing and barley only.

Feel is decent carb and a crisp bite to it.

One of the better pils I've had in a while. Its up there with Scrimshaw I think, I will buy this again.

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grass flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with tasty flavors and a crispness that makes this one very easy to drink.

12oz picked up at the Vista Brewer's Haven late Friday.. Enjoyed tonight.. pours a nearly perfectly clear straw golden.. good retention and spotty white lacing.

Nose is "American" ... as in "BIG Americanized" Czech Pils... BIG fresh floral hoppiness and a BIG balanced pils maltiness..

Great bitterness shows up front and then moves toward the finish.. in between, the floral/spicy hops really fly.. Malts are surprisingly spot-on.. I don't think a decoction was used, but they still hit the malt profile nearly perfectly.

Very drinkable.. crisp and well defined.. Loving how fresh this is... I will drink this again and again until the bottles go away.

A - poured to a pilsner glass. Golden straw in color. 1 finger head. (Head still there at the completion of drinking the beer) Cloudy but in an appealing fashion

S- again an appealing nose. Fragrant not subtle. Banana, pineapple, bubblegum, apple

T- full of flavor. A nice apple start, mellows to a nice malt and a sharper hoppy finish. A great balance of flavor

M- light body, light to medium carbonation, dry crisp finish

O- I was exited over this beer. I've been on a quest for a solid pilsner. This is by far ahead of the pack so far. Must try for a pils drinker

12oz : flute

Clear, golden yellow with a foamy, bubbly thick white head.

Grassy, herbal, floral, biscuit backbone.

Crackery malts, grassy, spicy Noble bop character.

Medium body, fizzy foamy carbonation, lightly crisp finish.

A very well done Czech Pilsner. Very easy drinking, but with a layered flavor profile if one decides to take the time to appreciate it.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a light straw amber with a thin white head that dissipates to a ring around the glass. Aroma of sweet bready malt and grassy hops with a hint of skunk when opening the bottle (oddly mimicing many Czech pilsners in green bottles). Flavor is dry biscuit malt, grassy hops, finishing with the same flavors, nicely balanced and a lingering hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied. A flavorful pilsner that makes me wish I could taste a Czech one fresh instead of months later out of inappropriate bottles. Nicely done and tasty. Good authentic tasting hops.
