22oz bomber, an old friend come home at last.
It pours light copper with a thick off-white creamy head. Doesn't look like a <anything> pilsner, but that's fine by me. Smell is caramel malt with rose-like hops coming on as the beer settles and the aromas have a chance to get going in the glass. Taste is assertive, with the hops and the malt vying for attention. The hops seem to be mostly about the bittering, not too much in the aroma, bringing out some leather-like tastes and...onion? Mouthfeel is tingly but slick, making me feel funny like when I climbed the rope in gym class. Overall good but the hops start building up in the aftertaste for me, kind of an accumulative effect. Those whose heads are hoppier than mine will enjoy this better. Still, an interesting brew and a great different take on a pilsner.

Appearance: Looks like a pale ale, with a clear amber color capped by three fingers of foam; the head turns rocky and leaves a few shards of lace
Smell: Graham cracker malt with just a hint of Germanic hops
Taste: Graham cracker malt flavors dominate from the front end to the finish; not much hop balance but what there is tastes rather grassy
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, almost syrupy, with low to moderate carbonation
Overall: This bottle must date from the 2011 release so it is no wonder that the hops have faded; it now tastes more like a Bock than an Imperial Pilsner and it is rather tasty, if you think of it that way
Thanks to the forgotten BA who sent this to me as an extra
