Style | ABV
American Double / Imperial Pilsner |  7.70% ABV

Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
With its classic recipe and impeccable craftsmanship, this summer seasonal is a study in delicately balanced contrasts. Up front, Pilsner malt makes a clear yet restrained statement, answered by the steady, harmonious hum of Saaz hops, traces of which linger in the dry, crisp finish.

3.8/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance:
Poured into a Boulevard tulip, this is one good looking beer! Rich, golden hue with a thick, porous white head. Miles of carbonation but hardly any head retention. Incredibly clear body.

Aroma:
Thick and nicely spiced. Grains and crackers. Pepper and other earthy spices. Smooth malt. Notes of honey.

Taste:
Follows the nose... Bitterness is up front. Plenty of spicing and noticeable alcohol at the end warms things up.

Mouthfeel:
Plenty of alcohol and carbonation. Heavier body than expected. Dry finish.

Overall:
I was surprised by this one... I wasn't sure what to expect going in, but I walked away happy I picked this one up. Aside from the warming bite of alcohol's presence, everything else highly enjoyable.

Serving type: bottle

Picked up a growler at Breeze In, Lemon Creek location, Juneau AK.

Into a pilsener glass.

A: somewhat clear golden yellow colored body with a nice two fingered white foamy head that dies within about thirty seconds. What lacing there is tries to cling but slides for the most part, but there really isn't much lacing at all to be honest. I do see some carbonation rising at a decent pace

S: nice combination of peppery spices playing with a slight citrus/lemony of sorts, some white grapes with a floral aspect show up as it warms

T: slightly bitter to begin with and as it starts to warm a nice grassy maltiness comes out; floral yet grassy aftertaste with a quick dry finish

M: sits light on the body with a good carbonation for an American Double Pilsener leaving enough harshness but not overly doing it, decent sessionability

O: Nice American Double Pilsener that I would have again and would definitely put it up with its respected food. Personally, I think I could do this with a nice big juicy steak right off the grill.

Serving type: growler
