A: This pours a medium straw-gold, very clear, with a magnificent head, about an inch tall, thick, dense, and lasting.
S: Aroma is disappoint, relatively, with very light malt and not much hops.
T: Very heavy malt flavor--it masks the hoppiness, which isn't in a good balance at all. Sweet, malty beers aren't pilsners.
M: Way too thick. They should have lightened it up a lot more.

Not a well-done beer. Not sure who this is supposed to appeal to: pilsners are one of my favorite styles, but this is not a pilsner.

Bought a single from Cost Plus and chilled it in the fridge for about two hours. Bottle says best by September 26, and as most will already know, label on this has a sort of Americana tapestry owl image, and looks totally badass. I've been wanting to try it for a long time, but it's a seasonal and I don't but too many 4-packs so this has gone untried for several years.

Poured into a Bulleit bourbon glass, gold in color, totally clear, no head active carbonation. Smells a little skunky with pez-like berry and malt. Sour yeast, sweet, herbal. Tastes about the same, very sweet with a berry character that morphs into a mildly bitter finish. Carbonation is more lively than expected, and this does have a bit of a hot mouthfeel, but the alcohol is really not present in the flavor. This is really clean - if I was being served this at a bar not knowing what it was I would probably pound this until I fell out of my chair, and at 8.1%, this would probably not take long.

Ummm...amazing? I really, really like it, however I will say that I don't know that it's leaps and bounds ahead of a good standard pilsner, and in the realm of doubles, I think I liked Uinta's Crooked Smile a bit better. Excellent take on the style, though, and i would totally get it again. It's in my 4-pack club now.
