look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On tap at PDX. Poured one finger of head on a cloudy, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is a pleasant grain and grapefruit mixture.
The taste has a solid bitterness from lemon and pine. One sided but great.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
An enjoyable pils with more bitterness than most.

This showed darker than I expect to see a Pilsner. Light amber with a thin ring of white head.

The nose shows a lot of hoppy citrus aromatics. Much more than I expected.

This is extremely hoppy in the mouth. There is some pilsner grain/lemon character, but the hoppy flavors really dominate.

Medium bodied, very crisp & clean. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

Very impressed with this, but it felt more like drinking a hoppy Pale Ale than a Pilsner. Would be interested in trying a bottled version.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Clear bright gold with one finger of white ten minute head. Rings of lace.
Smell is cracker malts with a bit of noble hops.
Taste is hop forward with the malts taking a back seat.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with plenty of carbonation. Finish bitter and dry.
Best by date is Oct. 7, 2016.
Overall a West Coast style Pils.

22 oz bottle from "Lifesource" Salem, $4.99 Typical yellow clear body to the lager..with a nice thick white head. more piney/grassy hop than expected for a pils..well sharper than expected but still nice. Very hoppy at first..grassy/grapefruit then fades fast leaving relics of nutty malts. Strange Ok on the palate..pretty carbonated but feels good. Difficult to judge..i liked it but it came across as a IPA/Lager hybrid

I enjoyed this beer at the OBF, and so I was pleasantly surprised to find it on tap at the PDX pub.

The beer pours a striking gold color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is likewise attractive, as I pick up some light dry orange citrus, honey and a hint of pepper. On the palate, this is a very tasty pilsner. The flavor profile starts out with some bread dough and light honey, but then the hops come on strong, leading to a long, crisp, refreshingly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a crisp, bitter finish. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, and drinkability is very high.

Excellent pils from Laurelwood. I didn't know they had it in them.

Bomber poured into my Bier Stein snifter, Debauched is pale gold with a white, medium bodied head leaving clingy, foamy lace.

Smell is surprisingly dank, very hoppy. As a hop head I get it, this is a proper NW Pils...I guess? Do I want this though? It's earthy, like Pilsner Urquell x 2.

Taste is deliciously clean, sweet cereals, with a really delicious hop blast. I've overlooked this brew way too much, but it's really solid, especially to the regional style!

Mouthfeel is dry, crisp and light bodied.

Drinkability is super high, this is really in my wheelhouse as a hop bomb with light, clean malt. The lagering makes it that much smoother, and too keep the freshness, very well done.
