It isn’t often I get to talk about Chuckanut Brewing-although I imagine the opportunities will increase, since I think they’ve gotten distribution in Portland-but when I saw the pilsner on tap, I knew I had to have it. One nice thing about the new theme: I don’t always have to go for the new shiny object.
The nose is slightly spicy from the hops and not a trace of malt to be found, which is both awesome and interesting.
The beer has a mild sweetness to it but that easily steps aside for a touch of bitterness and then even that steps aside to leave nothing behind.
It’s delicious and I feel lucky to get to tell you that you should be drinking this; Chuckanut’s beers are just so well done.
Let’s have a second one!
The thing about good beers is the consistency. And this isn’t just about the second glass, although that is certainly true.
In the case of a Pilsner, or at least this one, it’s about this beer tasting good all the way down; even after breaks of conversation. I still look forward to finishing my beer, telling you all about it.
Sometimes I just want to tell people: Just try it, and let them discover it for themselves. This is definitely one of them.
