God bless the pilsner makers for they are few in craft beer world
8% Pils that is not sweet and goes down like a session beer.
I had it at The Happy Gnome in St. Paul.

Appearance was good with plenty of lacing
Smell: was down a bit for most pilsner a
Taste, got the pilsner crisp and hop balance nice refreshing mouth feel

I could drink Albright exept the 8% abv

A - Brilliant clarity, light golden color, white head.

S - Hop dominates the nose accompanied by malt and hints of alcohol.

T - Sweet malt, great hop flavor, bitterness, and alcohol warmth, work together to give this beer an amazing balance.

M - Full bodied with appropriate carbonation.

This is an amazing beer, very well made, everything is well balanced and profiles the hops and alcohol in this beer very well.

I'm surprised this beer doesn't do better. Pours a lemon yellow color with great clarity. A soft white head with good retention through the whole tasting. Good lacing as well.

The nose is malty with a more German pilsner nose and hoppy compared to style. Some spicy aroma almost like a wheaty note but enhances the malt profiles. The hops have a nice earthy and spicy that I associate with saaz. Very feint yeast and alcohol notes but very subtle considering the ABV.

The taste is super malt with a great hop finish. The German malt shines very nicely with a definite presence. Some honey malt notes and a light bready flavor add to the complexity. The hops are balanced between bitterness and finishing with more of a spicy, peppery flavor. Some rose like notes come out but very light yeast notes overall. A sweeter finish leaves a nice clean palate.

The body is moderate to full. Some sweetness in the finish but still a nice clean flavor. Feels full attenuated for sure. Very enjoyable beer that imo is under rated. Maybe a bit hoppy for style but a Double Pils is more of a US beer so bring it on!

This beer pours a clear spun gold color. The head is one and a half inches of bright white foam that recedes slowly into a quarter inch cap of lacing. The aroma is of grass, and spicy noble hops with a nice malt backbone. It isn't the most complex aroma, but it is strong and what is there is very appealing to me. The taste is considerably maltier than the aroma. It is almost maibock like. There is a long grassy finish. There is also a present but well integrated alcohol note. The mouthfeel is full bodied with moderate carbonation, and a velvety texture. Overall, this is a great beer that I will surely drink again.
