Notes/Commercial Description:
Tilted Smile breaks away from the crowd. Big in alcohol, yet approachable and versatile. Confidently balanced with Saaz hops and 100% Pilsen malt. Crisp and delightfully carbonated.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Cloudy golden with lots of soda like carbonation, 3 fingers of yellowish off white head that has good retention. Little pinhead or fragments of glass formations as lacing.

S: Sweet, malty, slightly fruity like fruit cocktail, lager qualities, lager hops, saaz.

T: Deep sweet qualities with a hint of canned pineapple at first, then big lager qualities, big malts and big saaz hops, some oregano oil, quite herbaceous. A good amount of sweetness, then a big alcohol burn in the throat. A sort of plastic like quality I sometimes get in some Hefe Weizens as well. A sort of exaggerated pilsner quality in the aftertaste, like a pilsner on steroids, leaving a sort of lager burn taste which I assume is the saaz.

M: Thick, bready, syrupy, lots of heated soda like carbonation. Balanced finish.

O: I got this to better understand the style of IPL, which I was told this represents by the experts at Bruisin’ Ale’s in Asheville. I had Hitachino’s Nipponia a while back, and this is also considered an imperial pilsner as this one is. So, I am guessing IPLs and Imperial Pilsners are considered to be under the same category, not yet specified by some experts. Of the two, Nipponia is superior in my opinion. Tilted smile is good however, and worth a try.

The head on this beer is pretty remarkable, nice lacing. As the bottle describes high in alcohol but very approachable.
