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!!

3.41/5  rDev -14.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a brown 22 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, some hops. Taste is well hopped, piney, a bit spicy, some malts, not bad, but over hopped for the style. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

3.88/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

22 oz bottle with no freshness date, poured into a Speigelau stemmed pilsner glass, cold.

Pours an off-yellow, cloudy and murky body with a small white head with some retention and lacing.

Smells of dank hops and pils malts

Taste is bitter with a light soft bready component, very hoppy with agressive piney floral taste pattern, not as much of the citrus or tropical fruit flavoring. Bitter aftertaste lingers.

Medium bodied, smooth, crisp, dry finish, what the ideal lager should be.

I'd happily drink it again, but don't know if I'd seek it out.

4.63/5  rDev +16%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

The beer is a hazy honey orange amber color with a large white head.

The aroma has tons of floral honey, flowery hops, a light crackery malt, and lavender.

The flavor follows with a honey sweetness, a crackery malt, and then loads of piney green bitterness. It lingers with lemon and potpourri. It really is incredible on the flavor. For lager haters, this is perfect because of the beautiful bitterness.

The mouthfeel is lightly creamy with some carbonation.

An incredible American take on the style.
