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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Corked 750ml into pilsner glass.

A: Pale honey, clear, bright golden yellow. A lot of large bubble carbonation. Airy head that dissipated quickly, soapy lacing, pencil thin after resting. A good example of the style.

S: Slight citrus, peppery, lime, hoppy presence, white grapes, light malt tones.

T: Starts with a bitter citrus, hoppy, pilsner malt flavor. Floral and grassy. Finishes sour and lemony with a small alcohol tinge.

M: Light and effervescent. Dry finish.

O: Good for the style but nothing to particularly write home about. I would drink this again if I was looking for something drinkable on a hot day but not something that I would go for in sessions. Overall, not something I'd crave but paired well with the applewood bacon BLT I had it with. Would pair well with lightly flavored pizzas, lemon/citrus grilled chicken or a good BLT as I had.
