Deschutes Pine Mountain Pils
a: clear golden yellow with some very faint amber notes. large 3-4 finger rocky marshmallow bright white head. the fluid looks like something you'd find an ancient mosquito in, then use to create Jurassic Park
a: clean grains, sweet lemongrass, faint pine bark, noble hops, creamy, fresh biscuits
t: whoa - pine right away. its not so much a bitter pine, but just that earthy green flavor. fresh grassy flavors then fade to that slightly bitter hop characters. finishes clean with some fresh bread and sweet grassy grains
m: its a medium mouthfeel. carbonation levels seem to be a little less than i usually see in a pilsner
o: overall, its a good beer. its really earthy and green in the flavor, which i would have expected to contribute some bitterness to the flavor, but it doesn't seem to much. having that piney flavor is one that i haven't experienced in a pilsner before. its good, but a little different for the style. worth trying for sure, and quite refreshing for a nice sunny day in outside.

Info from the Deschutes website:
"A true German style pilsner"
ingredients: pilser and cara-pils malt, sterling and hallertau-mittelfruh hops and German lager yeast
Interesting- they include an outline all grain recipe for homebrewers, so you can clone it if you like.
fermented at 50 degrees
Poured from a bomber into a tall sampler. A moderate pour produces about an inch of billowy, snow white head that is quite stiff and sticks around for the duration. The beer is a rich golden color and crystal clear with swirling carbonation.
Floral, spicy and grassy hops and maybe just a little cooked corn are apparent in the aroma. The flavor is very balanced, with plenty of hop bitterness balanced out by a pleasant light malt flavor. There's mainly a light citrus rind quality to the hops and not so much of a piney taste, despite the name. Some salt and pepper spiciness. Unique and unexpected but very subtle berry-like flavors come through at times. The aftertaste mingles lingering bitterness and sweetness, with some saltiness. There's much to savor.
This is a refreshing yet still complex beer that is very worth a try. It's good to see some efforts being made to make some good lager beer. Now put it in cans so I can take it to the lake.
This was marked down as if on clearance but still had a freshness date about 2 months in the future. People might be put off by the "pine" name, which strongly suggests west coast "hop bomb".

Hmmm. Two entries for this beer on BA. I'll take this one since it hs the correct name. Shame on whoever added it as "Pine Mountain Pils." I bought a bottel of Pine Mountain Pilsner at a grocery store, poured in to a pilsner glass.
Pours a pale gold color, crystal clear, with torrents of bubbles rising in the glass. Thin white head is remarkably resilient, leaving sheets of lace on the glass.
Smell is lager-ish. A dandelion scent with a faint floral aroma of perfume or nail polish along side.
Taste is a bitter cereal flavor, with a wet bitter dandelion finish.
Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. As the bottle says "crisp as a clear autumn night on Pine Mountain."
Overall a very good pilsner. I'm not a huge fan of the style, too much like macros, but this one was very good.

22oz bomber at 41 F poured into a pint glass. Bottle has a best by date of 05/25/14.
Pours with a big white coarse head that fades halfway fast, then reaches equilibrium with the ample carbonation. Clear yellow with a slight coppery hue. Smell is crisp and grassy with a slight spiciness.
Taste is a little softened from the aroma, which is slightly disappointing. It's not as crisp. Slow bitter finish.
Mouthfeel is effervescent. Pleasant and light. Overall, nice, tasty, refreshing beer.
