Notes/Commercial Description:
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!!

4.58/5  rDev +14.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Poured into a mug.

5.0 A: Lightly hazed dark yellow to orange in color. Two fingers of incredibly creamy and dense white head. Really, it looks like you could rest your head on it and it wouldn't lose form. Excellent retention and plenty of lacing. Perfect.

4.0 S: Pretty hoppy for the style. Grassy, lemony and earthy hop aroma. Malts are grassy and a bit doughy. There's also a nice spicy yeastiness in there. Peppery and something similar to corriander, though not corriander.

4.5 T: Taste is delightly tasty. Moderate bitterness even though this has plenty of hops in it. Lemony, orange citrus, grassy, and earthy. Malts again are doughy with plenty of neutral malt flavor underneath. The hops are definitely on display here, but the malts are assertive enough to give a good overall balance. Again good spiciness with lots of pepper and other nondistinguishable leaves and roots.

5.0 M: Medium to heavy medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Insanely creamy and smooth. Very nice.

5.0 D: Overall this is one hell of a beer. There isn't a damn thing wrong with it and so much right. Goes down super easy as well. This is only my second Voodoo beer (BBVD is one of my favorite beers, period) and I have no idea why it took so long to get to this second beer. If I'm not stupid, I need to try to whole lineup ASAP.

I'm probably going to get berated for this review, but, oh well. It started by picking up a single bottle in South Philly for $2.79. Then when asking the lady at the counter about this beer (who couldn't speak English or Spanish) lead to even more questions. The label said Pilzilla Lager? Something of the sort? Has Godzilla on the label made with "cartoonish" hops? I was thinking maybe an over the top hopped up pilsner? A cross breed between a pilsner and a lager saturated with hops? Then, after 2 sips, I really figured it out...instant drainer!!! Whatever this is or is supposed to be, it is far from good. I'm no brewing expert, but in my opinion, this is one to AVOID all costs!!! Maybe this one reason I try to stick with Pale Lagers and Oktoberfest Beers.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A really amazing beer. The combination of hops and pilsner is great. The beer is not bitter at all and not overly hopped. Not a strong smell to it, but the hop flavors are definitely in there. Very crisp and refreshing with a little hop aftertaste. But again it is not bitter it is more of a floral/spice taste.
