Pours a brilliant caramel with a lingering frothy cream head.
Floral hops, crackery malt, light caramel sweetness, and a malt liquor note form the aroma. Malt sweetness dominates.
Flavor reveals bitter hops, which are the only noticeable character at the first sip. Floral notes creep in later, resting on a subtle caramel malt base that eventually becomes specialty malt fruity and estery. There's a slightly offputting metallic note.
Body is on the full side with moderate carbonation and noted alcohol warmth. The finish is fairly crisp.
Not sure what I expected from an uber pils, but this is too bitter for my liking, and the alcohol overwhelms. The floral hops are nice, but the esters detract.
