Cracked open a bomber that I picked up from the DFH brewery a few months back. Bottle dated Jan 2011. Poured into my DFH goblet.
Poured golden yellow, slightly hazy with a constant stream of bubbles racing to the surface. Lots of frothy white head which left nice lacing on the glass. Smelled of some floral hops, spices, and almost a malty-corn smell. It was a muted smell, but definitely some pleasant aromas. The taste was very interesting- slightly sweet at the front, slightly spicy in the middle, and slightly bitter at the end, but nothing really dominated. Very well balanced. Some hints of caramel and pine, but very subtle. Medium mouthfeel- slightly milky and a decent amount of carbonation. You can definitely tell it was bottle conditioned from the bit of zip you get. Very smooth finish, and the taste hides the ABV well. I went through the entire bomber over the course of an hour and it left me feeling pretty good, but nothing crazy.
Overall, a very unique beer that I greatly enjoyed. I rarely drink pilsners but if they all were like this one that would probably change. I'll be seeking this one out again.

Got this at MOM's organic market in Herndon. Opened in my hotel room in the Crowne Plaza a few blocks away. Surprisingly, gushed on me, messed up the carpet a bit. Now to the review.
Very Murky yellow body with quite stable little yellowish white head. Head is creamy but looks a bit coarse. No bubbles visible
Nose is some pilsner malt, there is a whole lot hop aromas going on. There is some resin, noble spiciness and some fruitiness too, maybe pineapple
Taste starts a little sweet and is followed by resiny hops and bitterness, sweet pineapple again.
Drinks very smooth with little carbonation and the suspended yeast. Alcohol warms a bit.
I do not really know what to make of this. I expected a Pilsener but it is way too sweet for that. I think it is overly hopped but the hops are nice. It does not have the refreshing sharpness of a lager but it is smooth. The suspended yeast would make it a Zwickl still it is more an IPA than a lager. Do I like it? I am not even sure about that.
