3.61/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Paid $2.99 for the single. Into a pint glass

A - A very light pour to prevent the sediment from entering my glass has failed. A bright amber yellow color with a swirl of sediment sort of like a lava lamp. No head or lacing
S - First sniff was very pilsner like skunky malts and herbal hops. In the glass it smells more sweet with corn adjacent and a touch of grainy bite.
T - Not bad it taste like a sweetned up sugary pilsner. Corn and grain bill is timid.
M - ABV is pretty well hidden. Kind of bland.

Overall I guess this beer is OK the ABV is well hidden but it doesn't have the snappy hop profile it suggests on the label. Not going to pick it up again.

eyes...
your typical straw color, lots of carbonation racing around the glass in a manic frenzy, as active as the carbonation is the head is consistent at the level of one finger, lacing is super nice, as far as pilsners go this is a nice looking one

nose...
not much here, some grain notes, a faint hop signature... pretty bland

taste etc...
I suppose the best aspect of this beer is the mouthfeel, it has a nice full feel to it without being too heavy to quaff, the typical pils flavors are slightly amplified and there is a medicinal type hop presence here, there is almost a mint quality in there underneath the grain flavor, the carbonation is subtle and right on.. it kind of lurks underneath and then breaks right at the proper point

verdict?
interesting. not my fave double pils by a longshot but not a bad beer, a nice option if you see it on tap on the town out with the boys

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, pepper, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pine, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, grapefruit, orange zest, pear, pine, cracker, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, grapefruit, orange zest, pear, pine, cracker, bread, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance of malt, hop, and yeast flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice imperial pils. All around well balanced hop, malt, and yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Well regardless of the beer, this is one sexy lookin' bottle.

Decent pils. Kind of a grain thing on the nose. Flavor is kind of clogged and thick. Doesn't really shine as sharply as I'd want. It's just there really. Definitely could use a sharper character profile.
