On Tap at McMenamins Cedar Hills
Look: brilliantly clear, highly polished gold, lovely lacing and a thin but perstent head.
Smell: lovely malt, clean like fresh driven snow
Taste: Softly sweet malt, finessed hop character, restrained yeast charecter but the slightest signature to give character.
Overall: this is a deserving stablemate to the delightful and a more complex Pilsner, this far more more straightforward; basically a high and clean 101mph fastball. I’ve had this in bottle as well and it’s great but fresh from the tap this is a thing of simple and pure beauty. Seek it out.

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a one finger white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of bready and biscuit malt, citrus and grassy hops, lemon and apple. Flavor follows with bready malt with a little biscuit, grassy, mildly citrus hops, mixed grain and faint citrus. Lightly floral on the finish. Medium bodied with light creaminess. I think this was intended to be a Helles/German style lager, not an American one; both the malt and noble hops lean in a Continental direction. This is a very nice lager and a very authentic tasting helles style one at that. Great grain flavor throughout and clear noble hops flavors. Very refreshing and flavorful; nicely done.

A bottle just three weeks old. Bright light amber color, clear and sparkles. Frothy head, sticky lacing. Aroma of fresh bread dough, light grassiness as in a open meadow. Must be a pure barley malt brew, though the bottle doesn't say. It is everything a quality lager should be: clean taste, light bitterness in perfect balance, lightly carbonated and smooth finish. This is a splendid beer. When pFriem sets their sights on doing lager right, they hit it right out of the ballpark.
