Widmer Brothers PDX Pils

What the brewers say

“An ode to our hometown of Portland, PDX Pils is a bright and refreshing hoppy lager. Toasted malts and floral notes are balanced with the crisp hops bitterness and aroma that the Northwest is famous for.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Rich bready malt sweetness, bordering on heavy with a note of caramel and some fruity esters. Hops are floral, grassy, and fairly subtle with a touch of citrus presenting on the retronasal.”

Flavor: “Crisp and refreshing though light-bodied. The malt sweetness is delicate with bread-like sweetness. The hops give complexity of some spice and floral notes but not overpowering. A bit of bitterness, but balanced with the delicateness of this beer.”

Overall: “The hops don’t add much in the way of complexity, but it’s a nice enough light beer—more of a cream ale than a Pilsner.”
