12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.
The head drops a thick crown of lace, clear and bright yellow color. Spicy herbal hops, grassy with a sweet biscuit and clean alcoholic nose. Creamy medium body, smoothness runs deep. Maltiness peels back another flavor after each sip as it slowly warms up. Biscuity, doughy, pasty flour. Bitterness is pretty high but does not go above any other flavor. Alcohol is very warming and very clean. Taste buds have their work cut our for them here, a bit too drinkable for a bigger beer but I'm not complaining.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue VI:
The Double Pilsner is a great example of what American beer is about, take a style and simply make it bigger, bolder and without a doubt, in your face. With that said, the style is gaining popularity from brewers of all sizes. Engaging bubbly white froth forms from a hard pour, radiant pale yellow color is actually lighter than anticipated ... not a bad thing, just very light. Very aromatic with suggestions of wildflowers, black pepper, faint sulfur and a donut-like maltiness. Smoothness before crispness, lovely medium body. The malt character drops a good amount of sweetness that has some bread and honey components. This is swept away quickly by a hop and alcohol combo. Hops come across a bit sharp with a thick herbal flavor, the alcohol brings a vivid peppery and spicy herbal smack to the taste buds. Alcohol is clean throughout with some warmth in the semisweet finish.
Lots of flavors to deal with here, complex, yet still quite drinkable. A sipping brew to say the least and a good example of the style as this one is a tamer in the hops department compared to other versions.
