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

A: Poured a light golden yellow with good carbonation, nice medium white cap and some bubbles, little bit of lacing stuck around
S: Unconventional for a Pils. A hefty dose of floral, grass and citrus notes, a little bit sweetness and a light corn like element
T: My immediate thought was..wow. Fantastic on taste. Lots of floral and grass characteristics from start to finish with a light citrus and pine punch. A little bit of sweetness upfront with a little slickness but rather clean, hop forward and lightly bittering finish.
M: Light to medium bodied, the floral hops stick around and linger in a nice way. Not to overbearing and the sheer taste of this beer on the palate is fantastic
O: Well, according to BJCP standards this really does not meet the German Pils criteria but at least they know it as they dub it a "NW Pils". It blurs the line between West Coast APA and a German Pils. I know it is one enjoyable drink.
