look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Had this on-tap in a pint glass at the 9lb Hammer in Seattle, nearly adjacent to the Georgetown Brewery.

Appearance: clear gold with a hint of opaqueness, which characteristic I'm not normally seeking in a pilsner. Thin head with nice lacing.

Smell: sweet malt and light hops aroma.

Taste: spicy hops first and foremost; delicious. A nice medium bitterness; in my mind, this beer is what a pils is all about. Would be spectacular with hot foods but is great alone too.

Mouthfeel: light-medium body with an OK level of carbonation; I would like to have had a little more.

Drinkability: despite some of its style-atypical characteristics, I still think this is a fantastically tasty beer and would enjoy quaffing many pints.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Appearance – This one poured a light yellow in color and very clear and sported a beautiful white head.

Smell – The light grain here is a bit harsh. There are some grassy hops along with a harsh sweetness that reminded me of Gummi Bears.

Taste – The grain here could gag a maggot. It was rough and very harsh on the palate. It was more like an Adjunct Lager than a Czech Pils.

Mouthfeel – This one is a bit bigger than light-bodied and very fizzy. The carbonation was more like a soda than a beer.

Sinkability – This one was way off track from the style and ended up in the pipes.

Poured into a pilsner glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a one finger white head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt, grassy hops and lemon. Flavor is grainy biscuit malt, lemon, light grassy hops with a slightly tart finish with residual husky malt. Medium bodied with light creaminess. A nice pilsner with authentic grainy biscuit malt and appropriate grassy hops. The lemon flavor is a little forward in this one, perhaps due to American rather than continental hops. Easy drinking and pleasant as expected from Georgetown.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: clear golden yellow in color with a short 1/2" head that falls quickly. No lacing develops.

Smell: barely a hint of grass. Nothing else.

Taste: very simplistic beer here. A little more malt sweetness than expected, with some grass tones, very little bitterness, and a touch of lemon zest. Mildly refreshing, but slightly dull too.

Mouthfeel: light crispness throughout. Clean finish. Light in body.

Drinkability: you can throw these down like a glass of water, but the flavor profile is pretty weak. Try at your own risk.

I had a pint of this at Virginia Inn near the Pike Place Market.

This beer is gold with a slight chill haze. It has a dense white head & great lacing.

The aroma is of fresh grass, pepper and some soft floral notes.

The taste is slightly spicy with a bit of bitterness. It turns a bit metallic after the first sip. It is kind of like when you put a penny in your mouth when you were a kid.

The beer is a trifle thin. That, along with the metallic taste make this just an average drinker.

On tap at Adrift Restaurant in Anacortes. Pale golden in the pint shaker with a pleasant spritzy mouthfeel. Light body but richer with malt than typical Pilseners.

Clean and tangy, even fruity. Inviting resiny hop flavor. Light flowery aromatics. Really a tasty and hoppy quaffable brew. This has the right touch of bitterness and the resiny zing adds to the drinkability.
