Bottle from Brewers Haven. Pours out clean and clear, soft fluffy head. Aroma favors the grains, while taste had the right amount of hop bite, crisp without being overpowering. There’s hope for the American pilsener yet.

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

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.

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.
