Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.
Poured from 12oz bottle to Pilsner Glass.
A - The beer poured a vivid clear gold color with a 1 finger light tan colored head with good retention and lacing.
S - The beer had a grainy aroma and herbal character.
T/M - Similar to the nose the beer had a grainy flavor profile with some citrus zest with melds nicely with the malty sweetness. More sweet than I anticipated though. The beer finishes crisp with a sweet malty character lingering.
D - For a double this is very drinkable.
Overall, I enjoyed this beer. It was my first experience with a double pilsner and I look forward to the next release. l

White gold with loose snowy froth that sets and leaves whisps. Honey on cream crackers and wildflower and grass nose.
Butter, lemon curd, musk melon and country loaf cut by big lemongrass and aniseseed hops.
Citrus zest bitter, slight soap and licorice linger. Medium verging towards full, chewy, round, burny aftertaste, sticky.
Chewy body, herbal hops, syrupy malts, and a kick - nails the style. Can't drink more than one, but shouldn't anyway. Cloys a bit; hops could clean up a bit more, but I'm gonna give it the benefit of the doubt and put that down to age (labelled 5/26/11 - forums tell me that's a best-by date.)

330ml bottle bought online from MyBreweryTap.com
Poured a slightly hazy golden honey colour. Slightly off white head poured with a whipped meringue like top then faded slowly to light covering which lasted throughout... lots of sticky lacing patches coat the glass all the way down...
Aroma - Spicy tart fruits (oranges peel, pears, lime), very grassy (freshly cut), lots of floral notes, sea saltiness, quite rubbery, chalky notes, some soapiness, peppery hop bitterness, very herbal - some hints of basil, some tobacco notes, some graininess...
Taste - Grassy and peppery hop bitterness up front followed by lots of herbal notes, light biscuity malts, some grainy sweetness, marzipan traces, tart fruits (grapefruit, lime, pear), some alcohol warmth just coming through, faint tobacco...
Feel - Pretty sharp and dry... medium \ full bodied... a bit cloying to be very drinkable..
Overall - A decent enough double pilsner but nothing earth shattering... worth a try though..

12 oz. bottle shared at PDX BA bottle share, 9.9.11.
One finger pure white head, small bubbles, medium dissipation with decent lacing. Very hoppy nose for style, big floral notes, some malty sweetness in the middle. Taste mirrors nose, one of the most hoppy pilseners I've had, quite tasty. Mouthfeel is medium, real good effervescence, fairly dry finish, though the ABV is fairly noticeable. Another winner from Odell, definitely worth a try.

Clear yellow colored beer with a small white head. Looks like a normal lager.
Smell is slightly skunked with some pilsner malt and a little noble hop.
Starts out dry with a stout noble hop bite. slightly spicy this does get a bit sweeter as you drink it. Bitterness is strong but well balance with the malt. Grassy hop with traces of saffron.
Mouthfeel is good.
Overall a tasty Double Pils. Doesn't smell like much but the flavor is nice and it isn't harsh at all.

poured from the bottle into a pilsner glass
A - Pours a perfectly transparent golden blonde. Plenty of bubbles of various sizes vigorously rush to the white, dense, 1-finger head.
Head stays intact all the way down the glass. Leaves behind a nice cobweb of lacing.
S -Lemon zest and herbs with a bit of grassy hops and a hint of sweet malt.
T - Spicy alcohol and buttery malt upfront. The body is a good balance of zesty lemongrass hop notes and buttery malt. A bit of lemon flavor as the beer passes over the back of the tongue with a crescendo lemongrass finish.
M - On the heavier side of medium bodied with high carbonation. Suits the style well.
After having and loving their Double IPA, Myrcenary, I had to try the double pilsner, but swapped half of the 4-pack out for more Myrcenary. Glad I did. While Double Pilsner is a fine beer, it doesn't measure up to the Double IPA. My biggest problem is that the flavor is too buttery without the requisite peppy citrus hop punch I expected. Besides disguising it's ABV of 8.1% remarkably well, there really isn't anything special about this beer, which coupled with the price tag of $2.50 a bottle, is enough to keep me from picking up more of this in the foreseeable future.
