Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly PILZILLA.

Pilzilla is a beer that I've been brewing for years. Each year it gets bigger and bigger. Nicknamed "The beer that took over Tokyo". It is an unfiltered Keller Bier. Nicley hopped at this point with 6 to 7 different kinds of hops and about 6.25 % ABV Each year we will add another variety of hop and bump the alcohol a bit. This is not your average pilsner, get it before we drink it all! Prost!!

Pours a hazy golden with a one finger white head, good retention.
Lemon, hearty malt, brown bread, some light dankness.
Tastes of caramel notes and toffee at first, followed by some juicy pine and light grapefruit, ending in a crisp, dry pine finish.
Mouthfeel is oily and full of resin.
Overall, awesome, much like a light ipa.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours golden with a subtle haze; small fluffy white head that fades leaving nice retention and sticky lacing. The aromas have your typical lager/pilsener aroma. Lots of fresh bread and crackers. Some sweet malts along with some honey. The flavors have a very solid bitterness. It's slightly earthy. Subtle hints of lemon and pine. More fresh bread and crackers. Grains are there. Finishes bitter and on the drier side for the most part. Alcohol basically goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is nice. It's medium-bodied with moderate to active carbonation. It's very fluffy, creamy, smooth and easy to drink.

This is a pretty solid "Imperial Lager". It's enjoyable and the craftsmanship is on point.

M: Medium-bodied, an interesting bitter/sweet mix
O: A unique, drinkable style that overall is better than the sum of its parts

Was too hopped for my preference, at least for this style of beer. Besides, even the base malt bill was mushy and blase, add on the bitterness to what is normally a refreshing style and you have a misfire

Clear amber-gold with a short off-white cream blanket.

Smell is banana skin, apple, bread and white grape.

Taste leans semi-bitter with grass, white grape, grapefruit, and pine over a medium crisp froth, gliding smooth and finishing semi-dry to a gradually drier chew.

Darker yellow. Smells a little sweet but the taste is very hoppy especially in the finish tickling the back of your throat. Plenty of alcohol for such an easily drinkable beer.
