A: 3.5 - Very pale gold with a smallish head that fades pretty quickly.
S: 3.75 - Pleasant enough noble hop aroma, with some maltiness, but it's kinda faint for a "double pils".
T: 4.25 - Good taste! I was afraid they'd go overboard with bitterness, but while there's a nice initial bitterness, it fades as the beer develops, allowing a nice solid maltiness (not grainy at all) to mix with lots of floral, rounded hop flavor.
M: 3.75 - Slighty cream texture. Body is certainly more substantial than a typical pils--not a quaffing beer, this one.
O: 3.75 - Decent offering, has just the German pils character I look for.

Also, remember it's a lager. Regal lager... not just a good beer, but also a palindrome!

now i have passed this thing over in stores for years, but finally i grabbed a single and i think it was a great buy. its only 7% abv, which makes it drinkable and light for any type of imperial, but its still quite hoppy and bitter, and the german type pils malts are huge in the flavor, while its still dry and clean drinking. very well mad obviously, and while its by far not my favorite breck beer, i have to appreciate that a beer this simple is so good. its gorgeous in the glass with a big tall white head and a hoppy nose. vegetal there and fresh and green. its new and excited, and i like the virgin nature it hits the palate with. carbonation is at war with the flavors though, its almost too bubbly, and this is the only style it could ever work with, but work it does, and i appreciate a blue collar mouthfeel as much as anything else. its still a pilsener though, and i will never get off on one, but i like it for what it is and i am sorry i waited so long to indulge. its well worth the few bucks i paid for the single, and i may even drink this one again some day. breck has come a long way lately i think, and maybe i have been behind the times on some of the beers, but this is very good.

Enjoyed from the very ornate 12 oz bottle ina pint glass, this fine pilsner pours a hazy yellowish amber with a firm white head and GREAT lacing. Nose of sweet bready malts, caramel malts, and floral hops. Flavors stand up at attention. Caramel malts to the fore, light biscuit to the sides, and light bittering hops to the rear. Lingering light bitterness on the aftertaste, and a sweet smooth mouth feel and crisp finish. Excellent for the style and will purchase it again.

Cheers

Everything I dislike about the 'style'. Adjunct aroma and flavor, overly sweet, with an amplified lager character. Finish is overly bitter.
