On tap into an American pint glass @ Ivar's Salmon House, Seattle. Pours a clear pale golden color w/ a minimal white head.

Aroma is delicate, floral, slightly grassy.

Taste is nicely grainy, floral, with a hint of white grapes. Clean, crisp, drinkable.

Mouthfeel is likewise crisp and light, refreshing.

Overall a really nice, restrained, balanced pilsner.

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.

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.

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.
