An imperial pilsner brewed with Sorachi hops, I believe.
I received the beer in a nonic pint glass and the beer had a gorgeous golden straw color with steady carbonation. The beer was transparent, had a finger thick head and the head dissipated to form a chewy, sticky lace. I really loved the appearance. This brew just looked refreshing.
Taking several long whiffs, I found a sweet and malty aroma with hints of bread and slight tarty lemon hints. The taste stayed pretty true to this, but with a bit more complexity even. There was still sweet malt, but this was punctuated by tangy hops, then citrusy hops, and hints of orange and grapefruit peel.
What's interesting about this beer is that it's far creamier than a pilsner, but still retains is crispness. It's not particularly light and easy-drinking, feeling much more like a Helles or Bock beer. Also particularly striking is how well-masked the alcohol is.
I'd say it's arguable whether a beer this creamy and thick can be considered a pilsner, even an imperial, but at the end of the day, it's just a damn tasty beer. I'm not complaining. Good stuff.
Serving type: on-tap
