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.

On tap at D&T in Houston.

A: Pours a chilled hazed golden/orange color which persists even after this warms a bit. A minimal white head forms, and recedes in a second. Not much lace.
S: Sweet, lightly breaded malts up front. Then very fruity and hoppy in the nose. Plenty of esters. Maybe some odd spice in the nose?
T: Lightly sweet and sugary malts. Then the fruity hops take over. Mango, passion fruits even. Fruity esters as well. Not much more is going on, and really has no resemblance to a Pilsner in any sense. Not bad if you think of it as a slightly sweet DIPA.
M/D: A full body with low carbonation. Not nearly enough crisp, dry bite with to much sweetness. A slow sipper, but kind of enjoyable. I got trough the pint, but probably am not getting anymore.

If I forget this is suppose to be any kind of lager, it is just a middle of the road DIPA. I am not sure what a Double Pilsner is suppose to be, but this is not what I have in mind. Fails miserably on style points. Really just an average DIPA that happens to be made with a lager yeast that seems to be fermented at warmer than normal temperature.
