A nice pilsner, very drinkable and delicious!

Golden and frothy with a strong aroma of soggy grain, mild hops, yeast, and a decent malt bill.

Has a good spicy noble hop twang, a bit metallic, very true to the style and very good with grassy and yeast notes. Aftertaste lingers longer than I would like it to. Intesting, because their Bitter has such a short dry finish, pity they didn't try to do that with this one, otherwise it would be just as drinkable.

ABV is 4.7%, yet another low alcohol offering from Silver Moon, making this a damn fine session beer.

At the Brewpub. Good golden color ,slightly hazy with the chill on this very hot sunny day.Great lace. Nice aroma, mainlly malty but spicey hops present. Light but hoppy flavour, light buscuity malt. Nice mouthfeel..quite slick. Drinkability was the great point..afer 6 hours in the hot Central Oregon sun..this just dissapeared in a couple of gulps

Served on tap into a pilsner glass

A- Poured a light straw yellow, ver clear, tons of streaming carbonation, fluffy white head left glass coating lace

S- Big grainy, bready, floral, and spicy hop notes.

T- Lots of malt sweetness, lots of graininess and bready notes with some spicy and floral hops.

M- Dry, high carbonation, pretty crisp and smooth.

O- This pilsner packed a lot more sweetness than I like. Overall it was quite drinkable but nothing I would seek out again.

A Pilsner with potential! With the exception of clarity, which is something any small brewpub will struggle with, the only thing holding this beer back from being a B or low A is some more quality hops. A Czech or Bohemian Pilsner is supposed to have some appreciable spicy or floral hop character and Bridge Creek Pilsner lacks this.

The malt comes through as fruity and slightly sweet. Citrus, especially lemon are detectable but where are the Saaz hops? Slight diacetyl and DMS can be found but they are not strong enough to detract from the beer. Or is the lemon scent masking them?

A big frothy white head roars up and looks very appealing on top of this light golden but slightly greenish brew. A slight haze detracts from the overall impression.

Sweet with no Pilsner hop bitterness bite. The malt is there and enjoyable but it needs some more hops to accompany it. The conditioning is too low for the style and the aftertaste lacks a bitter kick. It is not unpleasant though and is very clean. The lack of hops throw this Pilsner out of balance. The body is also a bit light for the style.

Drinkability and Overall Impression:
This beer is drinkable but needs more bitterness to cleanse the palate between sips. The beer is enjoyable but a disappointment for its style.

Had this on tap last summer at Bailey's Taproom in Portland, Oregon. The colour was lightly golden with a very thin head. The aroma was very faintly hoppy with some citrus thrown in. On the palate, some hops up front and slightly crisp but not much mid palate. The finish was rather like spent grain. Bummer of a drink on such a hot day!

An extremely pale yellow pilsner with an airy Saaz and lemon rind aroma. Enthused carbonation keeps a light film of white head aloft, but the beer lacks the clarity and polish of a lager. The taste is lightly bittered, lightly toasted, and otherwise clean until the finish when a heavy aftertaste burdens the palate with an almost ale-like yeast complexity. Lacks crispness and polish though the hop accent is well positioned.

Clear straw colour with a small white head. Poor head retention.

Light, fruity aroma with a hint of grain.

Light, estery flavour. It's a bit too dirty for a pilsner. This really shouldn't be tasting of banana.

Medium-light body with moderate carbonation.

This is simply too fruity for the style. The poorly handled yeast adds an unwanted fruitiness.
