A: Pours to a nice cloudy amber color with 3 fingers of head that dissipates down to a pillow of foamy head across the top that sticks around and clings all the way down.

S: Very aromatic. Lots of nice sweet malt aromas coming up with citrus, apple and pear. Some other dark fruit aromas as well. Very enjoyable.

T: Nice sweetness from the get go with the hops flavor mixing very well with the fruit flavors. Citrus and piney but definitely not overbearing. Biscuit like flavors coming thru as well with some very nice and mild bitterness that makes its presents known within kicking over your palette.

M: Light carbonation works well with the flavors. Slight dryness on the tongue at the end but nothing that takes away from it.

O: Very nice double pilsner here. Everything balances out nicely and nothing takes over on the tongue. Very good brew here.

Bought as part of a make your own 6-pack for $12 at Krugels Georgetown Deli.

This beer was better than I expected, on par with the quality put out by Breckenridge. The most notable part of this beer in my opinion was the delicate floral flavor at the end of each sip. The alcohol also made itself known in a favorable way. Nice offering, will try again.

12oz bottle

A- Pours a golden yellow/orange with a nice off-white head with good retention and lacing.

S- The aroma is surprisingly faint. The aroma consists of faint grainy malt and citrusy hops.

T- The taste isn't much of an improvement over the aroma. Granted there is more flavor than the nose would suggest, it just isn't very enjoyable. Faint grainy malt up felt with a strong medicinal alcohol warmth and metallic twang dominating the taste. I can barely palate this one, and I can't say that about too many beers.

M- The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

O- Overall, not a fan of this one at all. The taste is just a mess in my opinion.

12 oz bottle into long-stemmed tulip glass. cant decipher this bottle dating.

A: a bright, very clear, golden orange hue. head is bright white and dense. retention is average and the lacing is good. thick.

S: chalky, earthy bitterness breathes in through the nose. mild bits of diacetyl? otherwise pretty hoppy and pleasant.

T: a little bit of buttered popcorn. diacetyl or was corn used in this brew...? the lingering sweetness of unfermented sugars. metallic flavor that i cant seem to shake.

M: average carbonation on a medium body.

D: too many negatives on the palate to really find this enjoyable or worth recommending. the metallic flavor is rather prevalent and therefore off-putting. pass.

Bought a 12oz bottle in a mix and match 6 pack out of curiousity. Poured into a Tulip glass.

S- hops, malts, small hints of citrus and an earthy smell. Similar to an IPA suprisingly.

T- Sweet start with a bitter back bone from the hops. Grapefruit and oranges lurking around.

M- Super dry finish and medium carbonation.

O- Pretty good double pilsner. Somehow it came off to me as a "milder" IPA but all the flavours came together well. Would go good with some spicy food.

Pours a clear pale, yellow with a tight, white head that leaves little lacing.

Smells of grain with some grassy hops.

Tastes of the grainy malts with some grassy hop. Malts lead off with some slight sweetness and a bit of bread. A touch of fruitiness comes through as well. Hops add floral and grassy touches with some light bitterness.

Mouthfeel is light with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a solid double pilsner that fits in with what Breckenridge does.

Pours a honey golden color that is appetizing, with medium width head. Nose is certainly well within bock territory, nice and bready-malty with some hop zing in there too. Palate offers a big hearty malt profile, light hopping to balance it some, and is very drinkable. A little boozy but still very drinkable.

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

I can sense kingliness whilst in this beer's presence. Not sure why, though... It pours a clear golden straw topped by a finger of white foam. The nose is kinda plain, comprising sweet flowers and grass, with a touch of white bread. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a vague sweetness and some menthol. Things don't quite sit on my tongue all that well, frankly, what with this strange twang tossed in there at what I hope to be the last minute. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly drying finish. Overall, a pils that's a touch too thick and heavy, one with an odd flavor, and one that certainly ain't worth the cost, frankly. Not a fan.

Pours hazy dark yellow. Head is slight and soapy.

Aroma is mild, relatively sweet with pale malt and faint floral hop.

Taste is rich biscuit malt, and intense pungent hops - herbal and floral in character. Grassy with some lemony citrus. Grape skin bitterness in the finish along with hints of melon and some cracked pepper.

Mouthfeel is on the syrupy side of medium.

Overall, an unusual and interesting beer. However, the flavor is a little muddy. Hops are strong, pungent, and spicy.

I bought a six pack (12oz bottles) today ($14/pack). I like the label.

Color is a medium golden, with a some haze. Head starts out rocky but thins to light white with some lacing as I finish my second bottle. Nose is subtle, some malt toasty sweetness with a floral hops smell. Body is medium to heavy but at times is slightly cloying in sweetness.

Flavor is sweet, biscuit-like with a distinct malt backbone mixed with a hops bitter finish. Hopping is unique, almost a hop-burst character that is both bitter and floral at the same time with a short noble hops bitter finish. A good beer overall but the price was steep by comparison. Has some of the characteristics of Victory Prima Pils but finishes sweeter and not as complex in the hops finish. I'd order it again and buy it again but it's not my go-to Pils.
