4.38/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Served on tap at McCormick & Schmick's into a shaker glass

A- Poured a very clear light straw yellow color with a frothy head that left glass coating lace

S- Big bright citrusy and grapefruit hops, sweet cracker malt character, and breadiness. Fresh aroma

T- Lots of bright grassy, citrusy, and grapefruit hop flavors with a nice sweet cracker and bready malt backbone.

M- Soft carbonation, very dry, lighter body, refreshing and easy to drink

O- Very fresh tasting and great balance of malt and hop flavors with almost no bitterness. A fantastic pilsner.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured to a standard pint glass @ Locol (from notes taken 10/23/11):

A - Pours pale golden yellow with a hint of orange. A tiny bit of haze. 1/2 finger translucent white head. Low retention, slightly sticky lace. A couple of carbonation streams were present. Shines golden in the light.

S - Slight piney hop, but also a slight skunky sulphury earthy spiciness from the fresh hops. Moderately sweet light malt hides underneath.

T - Piney earthy hop fresh hop flavor hits immediately. Moderate cirtus tang follows, punctuated by a blast of sweet malt and honey citrus, and then eases into mild-to-moderate grapefruit bitterness. Finishes with lingering mild bitterness and freshly sweet citrus.

M - Slightly fizzy carbonation, with the fizz lingering on the tongue. Slightly sticky, but also dry. Fresh and sudsy, but not very crisp. Mild-to-medium body.

D - Fresh hop adds great flavor to the pilsner character, it totally complements the pilsner style here. Decent and tasty.

Just had this badboy of a Pilsner on-tap at their brewpub...

- Clear golden straw yellow pilsner... fizzy and fluffy white head... left a nice thin layer on top... great lacing...

- Wonderful funky hops, grassy, skunky, herbal... and yet very citrusy, orange, grapefruit, lemon zest... light grain and sweetness... awesome.

- What a smooth citrusy yet very Czech-like hopping... grassy, skunky, herbal... mild grain, sweetness... biscuit...

- Light bodied, great carbonation... lightly drying..

- One of the best Pilsners I have had... very easy to drink, tasty hops galore.. and the citrus, orange, lemon notes don't even overpower the true Pilsner hop flare.. it is so very well blended.
