Notes/Commercial Description:
Formerly PILZILLA.

Pilzilla is a beer that I've been brewing for years. Each year it gets bigger and bigger. Nicknamed "The beer that took over Tokyo". It is an unfiltered Keller Bier. Nicley hopped at this point with 6 to 7 different kinds of hops and about 6.25 % ABV Each year we will add another variety of hop and bump the alcohol a bit. This is not your average pilsner, get it before we drink it all! Prost!!

Bottle purchased at Voodoo Brewing Company in Meadville, PA.

Pours a slightly dark, full-looking yellow, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells lagerish and fruity, with some spicy, grassy hop aromas in the back, along with pilsner malt.

This is one of the yeastier lagers I've ever had, it gives off fruity flavors, some peach, with a good portion of grassy and floral hop flavors, slightly spicy and peppery. The malt character is quite doughy, lending fullness to the body, and a sweet bready backbone to the beer.

This is medium bodied, with a crisp, slightly sweet mouthfeel, and a medium amount of carbonation. It's really drinkable.

Really cool label on the bottle, and really cool beer inside. Very different from the typical hoppy American lager.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Undated bottle at 40 degrees into snifter
Aroma of yeast when opened – this rapidly dissipates
Head small (2 cm), white, frothy, slowly diminishing to 3 mm layer
Lacing good – complete rings of tiny bubbles
Body medium yellow, cloudy
Flavor begins and ends with hop bitterness. In between a hit of malt occurs. No alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, watery, soft carbonation

Appearance 4.5, Aroma 4.25, Flavor 4, Palate 4, Overall 4.1875
Actually quite good – Voodoo calls it a pilsner but it’s still good – well worth buying again.
