First off, I have to mention I am not a big lager or pilsener guy. Generally find them underwhelming. But, having this on tap, I could see giving them more of my time and beer budget. This was actually quite good and refreshing, even here in the middle of (a mild) winter.

Overall, I just really liked the hoppy flavors this offered. Yeah, its generally mild to all of the ales usually being consumed, but I liked that this had a nice bit of citrusy hops to it, balanced by some grassiness and malty backbone. Not a bad effort at all, and I would choose it over Urquell any day.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Appearance – This one poured a light yellow in color and very clear and sported a beautiful white head.

Smell – The light grain here is a bit harsh. There are some grassy hops along with a harsh sweetness that reminded me of Gummi Bears.

Taste – The grain here could gag a maggot. It was rough and very harsh on the palate. It was more like an Adjunct Lager than a Czech Pils.

Mouthfeel – This one is a bit bigger than light-bodied and very fizzy. The carbonation was more like a soda than a beer.

Sinkability – This one was way off track from the style and ended up in the pipes.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: clear golden yellow in color with a short 1/2" head that falls quickly. No lacing develops.

Smell: barely a hint of grass. Nothing else.

Taste: very simplistic beer here. A little more malt sweetness than expected, with some grass tones, very little bitterness, and a touch of lemon zest. Mildly refreshing, but slightly dull too.

Mouthfeel: light crispness throughout. Clean finish. Light in body.

Drinkability: you can throw these down like a glass of water, but the flavor profile is pretty weak. Try at your own risk.

I had a pint of this at Virginia Inn near the Pike Place Market.

This beer is gold with a slight chill haze. It has a dense white head & great lacing.

The aroma is of fresh grass, pepper and some soft floral notes.

The taste is slightly spicy with a bit of bitterness. It turns a bit metallic after the first sip. It is kind of like when you put a penny in your mouth when you were a kid.

The beer is a trifle thin. That, along with the metallic taste make this just an average drinker.

Had this on-tap in a pint glass at the 9lb Hammer in Seattle, nearly adjacent to the Georgetown Brewery.

Appearance: clear gold with a hint of opaqueness, which characteristic I'm not normally seeking in a pilsner. Thin head with nice lacing.

Smell: sweet malt and light hops aroma.

Taste: spicy hops first and foremost; delicious. A nice medium bitterness; in my mind, this beer is what a pils is all about. Would be spectacular with hot foods but is great alone too.

Mouthfeel: light-medium body with an OK level of carbonation; I would like to have had a little more.

Drinkability: despite some of its style-atypical characteristics, I still think this is a fantastically tasty beer and would enjoy quaffing many pints.

A clear pale golden yellow with a thin white head. Light pilsner malt aroma. Sharp pilsner malt taste with a light hop balance. Not overly sweet but nicely blanced. Smooth crisp finish with a light bittering linger. Very clean and easy to drink.

This is a great easy drinking pilsner and according to my brother only $6 a growler (if you have one of theirs, $8 if you don't). We easily drank the whole growler. Even the non-beer drinking wives liked it.

BC is full of lagers by craft brewers. It was nice to see a decent pils by a local Seattle brewer on tap. I had it after a PBR so the hops and full body came to my attention. This is not an earth shattering beer but rather a nice patio lager with enough body to stand up to a burger.

As pils go, this one is quite good, in my opinion. I had one today on tap and I was very skeptical, but in then end I found it to be a good beer. Clear yellow color with a one finger white head, left a little lace. Aromas were sublte, slight hoppiness and twinge of grass. Tastes started with a nice little hop bite and finished with a very smooth malty flavor that lingered much longer than I expected and was really rather nice. Mouthfeel was nothing special, crisp and dry. Drinkability was good, you could definitely sit back on a hot day and put several of these back with no problem. As others noted before, nothing earth shattering in this beer, but still, for an American brewed pils, it's quite tasty.

Had this on-tap at the Elk in Spokane for $4.

This was a pale, semi-clear gold color, with a huge white head. Not much in the lace department.

The smell was of mild, grassy hops and mildly sweet malt. No offensive odor here, but not much going on, either.

The taste is like the smell: bland and inoffensive. The mild grasspy hop flavor seems to balance the mildly sweet maltiness, but neither stands out in any way. If bottled, this would be a decent lawnmower beer, but that's about it. Definitely not worth $4 for a pint in a restaurant.

Light bodied, normal carbonation for the style. Yawn.

A very average beer, in no way worth seeking out. The best that can be said is that it is inoffensive and goes down easy. I liked Manny's Pale Ale from this same brewery, but this one I'd have rather skipped in favor of something that was actually distinctive.
