4.13/5  rDev +3.3%

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.

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.
