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.

Poured a pale gold with minimal head. Typical pilsner appearance with a mild aroma of wheat and grass, although there's some pine there too. Moderate carbonation and a light mouthfeel.

Flavor was a pleasant surprise, with full flavors of lemon, wheat, and a lingering and slightly bitter hoppy finish. Light and very refreshing pilsner with some nice American hop flavors to boot.

Tried this at the Grand Re-opening of Barking Dog Ale House in Ballard. It's a great pilsner (which i'm not a huge fan of) that goes down easy and is very sessionable.

I can't wait to get it on tap in my home kegerator. Now Georgetown just needs to keep an extra 1/4 or 1/2 barrel in stock for me.

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.

A: Growler aggressively poured into a pint glass. The color resembles fall leaves drained of chlorophyll sitting ripe and yellow off the end of their branches. Translucent and crisp. The head is a medium cloud of ivory with great retention and moderate lacing.

S: Impressive sharp flowery aromas. Freshly cut grass and sweet confections. A bit of pepper in the back. I thought the smell was energetic, clean, and engaging.

T: Toasted malts coupled with a slight citrus zing. A grainy taste as it warms up but generally very crisp. Lemons, honey, and a subtle pinch of spice. Nothing too complex but still very solid and enjoyable.

M: Light mouth feel that is clean and fresh.

D: A six dollar growler makes this nothing short of a perfect deal. I would recommend this offering for anyone who has the chance. Throw on some High on Fire and pound these back.

A clear pale golden yellow with a thin white head. Light pilsner malt aroma. Sharp pilsner malt taste with a light hop balance. Not overly sweet but nicely blanced. Smooth crisp finish with a light bittering linger. Very clean and easy to drink.

This is a great easy drinking pilsner and according to my brother only $6 a growler (if you have one of theirs, $8 if you don't). We easily drank the whole growler. Even the non-beer drinking wives liked it.

First off, I have to mention I am not a big lager or pilsener guy. Generally find them underwhelming. But, having this on tap, I could see giving them more of my time and beer budget. This was actually quite good and refreshing, even here in the middle of (a mild) winter.

Overall, I just really liked the hoppy flavors this offered. Yeah, its generally mild to all of the ales usually being consumed, but I liked that this had a nice bit of citrusy hops to it, balanced by some grassiness and malty backbone. Not a bad effort at all, and I would choose it over Urquell any day.

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.
