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.

Bottled two years ago, but stored in a dark 68 degree area for 18 months or so it's been in my possession. I mention this because on one hand I think this beer might have turned a bit, but reading through the reviews, plenty of them mention an overly sweet taste, and mine is almost syrupy. Smells faintly of citrus, but also rusty water. Plenty of carbonation and lace left, though, so maybe this is just far more sweet and sticky than I prefer.

A - Hazy amber body with three fingers of bubbly white head. Really nice retention and the foam clings to the glass the entire way down.

S - Dank fruits and sugary malts. Smells just like a pilsner should with a Belgian twist.

T - Tons of cherry and tangy apricot fruitiness. Again, strong Belgian yeast flavor profiles. Malts are full and bready. Alcohol is spicy but well masked by the strong flavors.

M - Medium full body with moderate high carbonation. Very sticky and syrupy.

O - Not a bad brew. Flavors seem more like a Belgian/pilsner. Normally I prefer a pilsner to be lighter and more dry. Definitely a beer worth trying, but not one i'm likely to come back to often. I do love the labeling though.

A really great beer and style I haven't seen before. Even though it has a higher alcohol content the beer didn't have an alcohol flavor to it. It came in a 22 oz bottle and was a perfect size and ABV to share with 2 other people. Everyone enjoyed it. There is no hoppiness to the beer as would be expected with a pilsner, but my biggest pet peeve is when pilsners have an overwhelming amount of that strong pilsner malt, but this one did not at all. It was a great balance of a strong beer and a pilsner, if Imperial Pilsner wasn't written on the bottle I would have had a hard time putting this beer into a category.
