look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured out a nice golden color with a nice head that laced the glass.

Smell was wonderful. Nice dose of hops with a underlying flow of malts which balance the beer out.

Taste was great. Big hops explode on the palate, great spice and grass notes, with a touch of earth in as well. Malts come in the middle, but only to make an appearance and nothing else.

Mouthfeel was medium with a good check on carbonation.

Wow. What a great german pils. This one could go head to head with germany's finest for sure. Too bad there was only one bomber at Half-Time.

Pours a clear gold colored beer.

Smell is spicy Saaz hops all the way. Pleasant grain scent and an earthy aroma from the hops.

Taste is a bit sweet with the Saaz hops on your tongue from the first taste. Spicy and a little bit of sourness from the hops are the main flavors here. Ballsey use of the hops here, sort of a Czech version of a hop monster. Fairly bitter aftertaste that cleans the palette very well.

Mouthfeel is good.

Very drinkable, but this isn't just another lackluster Pilsner from an American brewery. This is a Pilsner that hasn't been dumbed down and throttled back on the hop levels. I could drink a lot of this if it were a bit cheaper. For the price I don't want another Pilsner Urquell imitator; I want something that is bigger than that. This is most certainly "Bigger Than That."

4.01/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 22 oz bomber - painted label. Description of the beer on the back, including ingredients. No freshness info or ABV. "Dedicated to the Rolling Thunder in each of us."

Appearance: Clear golden color with a huge billowing white head. Good head retention, lots of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Nice sharp aroma with a bit of hops and a nice maltiness.

Taste: Very smooth mouthfeel - low carbonation level. Nice hops bitterness throughout with a very good finish.

Overall impression: Great example of the pilsner style that is slightly hoppier than most. Very nice drinkable - quite tasty!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Sampled from a 22oz bottle 1/14/05. Appears a crystal clear straw yellow with an inch high head of white foam. Spotty lacing was left around the glass as the head dropped quickly. Aroma is crisp with spicy hops and a nice doughy malt backbone. A good amount of earthiness from the hops was present. Biscuity malt with spicy hops hits you all at once on your first sip. Notes of floral hops are there as well. Ends with a bitter spicy hop bite. Mouthfeel is about medium and fairly crisp. Pretty good Drinkability as well. Overall a nice example of the style.
