From a mixed 12-pack.
Looks a smidge rustier and less crisp than your normal Pils. Light doesn't SHINE through per the norm. Nice rocky head. Good retention leaves a sticky lace.
Smells delicious. I think I would've believed it to be an American pale ale. Cascade hops and cereal malt with a slight fruit spritz. Think of a bowl of rice krispies with hop pellets and mandarin orange bits sprinkled in.
A little too hoppy to be a Pils, I guess that's where the Uber comes into play? It's very enjoyable though. Not so crisp, very malty, albeit not so grainy. I guess the taste confirms the smell.
I dunno if this fact impresses me with ALL their brews, but this Heavy Seas series seems to put a new American twist on every traditional style it undertakes. In some cases, I appreciate it, in others, it's a bit disarming.
