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.

Pours deep hazy gold with a good white head. Some retention and lace.

Deep rich aromas, and a surpise bit of fruit and woody vanilla. This one smells like it is going to have some depth. And it does not disappoint -- big flavors of rich malt, some nice hop bitterness. Boozy, with some sweetness that eventually leads to malty bitterness and a crisp finish. Very odd how you get to this point, but still a nice finish.

Overall, not something you'd knock down alot of. Rich and boozy, this needs to be sipped. Worth trying.

Served in a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass

This beer pours a light golden color with a nice frothy white head that laces on the glass. The smell is distinctly of that sour pilsner aroma, bold sweetness and a hint of pepper spice. The flavor is really quite pilsnery with the malts amped up for this brew. There is a decent mouthfeel to it and it's rather enjoyable, but not a beer that I would bring to a tasting. This is really a beer that is meant to be enjoyed with pizza and sports of some sort. But alas it came with cork and cage and shall never meet it's potential due to that very fact.

Pours a big frothy two plus finger head of eggshell white, mainly dense microfoam but some larger bubbles interspersed here and there, adequate plus retention, the lacing is actually much stronger than you’d expect and the residue all but fully coats the inside walls of the glass. The liquid is a dull rust water orange, light in hue and more pale yellow at the rims and glass bottom, the widely dispersed tiny bubbles are active as they rise. The nose is quite fruity with pear, yellow apple, fig and peach notes, some pepper and then salted pretzels, more straight up malt than associated scents like chocolate, not herbaceous but has a stiff spine, some cornmeal but the good kind. Full-bodied, almost heavy for its type with an unusual emphasis on sweet citrus, a blend of lemon, grapefruit and orange, very dominant. Leafier here, the hops come through in a drying sense, helps balance out that citrus as well as the apricot, pear, mango, cantaloupe fruit. At times close to honeyed. The carbonation stays on the fluffy side and spreads it like glue across the palate. Buttered biscuits and some sweet corn but nothing in the area of adjunct land. This is a definite “take” on the style and not a classic rendition, as such more likely to polarize. But, in the end, it’s fun taken on its own terms and just thrown back in that spirit.

Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty beige color pilsner with a rather large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of dry and floral hops with some sweet notes from a crystal malt base. Taste is a mix between some dry and floral hops profile with some quite sweet crystal malt base. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Interesting though a touch too sweet to be an everyday beer.

Thanks to a generous individual for sharing some of this at Sexual Chocolate. Served in a SAVOR snifter.

Pours a golden-straw color with a thin white head and not much in the way of lacing or retention. The nose is slightly fruity with a bit of grain and grass plus some slightly-sweet malt on the backend. The taste is mostly generic malt without the complexity of the nose. Light to medium body with good carbonation. Drinks pretty well and is probably my favorite of the Crooked Line Series.
