3.76/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

16.9oz bottle at 41 F poured into a pint glass. No date or code.

Pours somewhat hazy golden with a big white head that fades at a medium pace. Medium to small amount of active carbonation. Smell is bready, grassy, summery, nice.

Taste is a somewhat bready finish, somewhat subtle hop bitterness, slight honeysuckle characteristic.

Mouthfeel is very light and effervescent. Overall, it's pretty good.

Serving type: bottle

From the 500 ml bottle purchased at the brewery restaurant in Bellingham. Clear pale golden in the Einbecker Pilsner glass with a plentiful foam and lots of spritz on the tongue.

Crisp and light, with a resiny tang. Moderately hoppy with a bitterness that gradually creeps up to the aftertaste. Some light and crackery malt, but a substantial mouthfeel. A pleasant tangy and brambly taste. The hops are fruity and a bit herbal tasting, with a piney note. Plenty of bitterness but no real bite.

Overall, a fine example of the Pilsner style and a great quaff.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A Pilsn's Pilsner. Bright pale yellow, white modest head. Classic noble hop aroma with grassy, flowery tones. A little less dry than some renditions, with typical Chuckanut top-quality German grain coming through, but nicely balanced with generous carbonation and lingering hop bitterness.

Serving type: on-tap

on-tap, collins pub

appearance: shaker pint, bright and clear golden-copper body, active white foam with light retention

smell: grassy hops, lemon rind, pepper, grains, honey

taste: a solid pilsner that could be in strong rotation come summer time - grassy noble hops, lemon rind, honey, toasted grains, a little peppery bite. nice stuff

mouthfeel: relatively high carbonation, light bodied and easy drinking

overall: a well-done pilsner...somewhat of an anomaly in the region

Serving type: on-tap
