Hmm. What's this I'm tasting? The creaminess of the mouthfeel is turning me off, but there's something thick and creamy about the taste, too...like a rich cake with creamy frosting. There are hops here, no doubt, but the sweetness comes through more strongly. Although the sweetness is mostly yeasty (pound cake, funnel cake, you name it), there's a little bit of sweet fruit in there. This beer is 9.00%, only half as strong as Dogfish's World Wide Stout, but the alcohol taste comes through just as strongly. The more I drink, the less I like this beer.
I was expecting something like Victory's Harvest Pils, which is also a double pilsner, but this brew is doing something different. It's Dogfish Head, afterall, so don't be surprised.
Appearance: The color of...it's a medium gold color. (I'll let some other reviewer make that joke.) A 1/4 inch head with minimal to moderate lacing.
Smell: Like cake, but subtle...the smell didn't clue me into the strength of the sweet cake flavor that was to come.

A: Poured a pale bronze-gold with a tightly woven white head that was sticky leaving a rim lacing behind.
S: dry grains with some light doughiness and hints of spicy alcohol.
T: The initial flavor had a light breadiness to it, floral hopping and dried citrus. Very smooth and refined flavor and not as hoppy as one would expect. There was a light dry grains and grassiness detected in the finish with a gentle lingering fade of pale malts and light citrus flowers.
M: Crisp mouthful
D: Great drinkability
