Style: German Kellerbier / Zwickelbier

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!!

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The bottle cap is a very cool solid pine green color. The beer pours a murky golden yellow and has a small white head. The aroma is a nice blend of hops and a floral scent. The flavor is nice and hoppy with some citrus tossed in. I found this to be a really good Kellerbier.

looks terrible. Like a messy cloudy puke dump. smells malty and sweet: a bit boozy. tastes very hoppy and piney goodness. malty and boozy a little too. Finishes like swamp rot. washes very smooth and heavy over the pallet. Quality CO2 fizz. Overall not something I would buy again.

Appearance: hazy orange-straw color with a half finger white head

Smell: Dried hops with a big crackery malt presence

Taste: similar to the nose, but i find the taste even cleaner with the hops and malts balancing well

Mouthfeel: Medium body; Very crisp and refreshing with a bitter dry finish

Overall: This is a solid effort and true to style. A big hopped up pilz for sure. It may have a tad more malt presence than I prefer, but other than that i do enjoy thflavors and the mouthfeel is crisp and dry which is how i like my pilz. Not the best voodoo has done, but not the worst either. Id say its worth trying it for yourself

Hazy straw colored pour. Not much in the aroma department. Very light, crisp and dry. Some hoppy bitterness, I didn't get much flavor with this one. Drinkable, but wouldn't go out of my way like I would to find some of the other Voodoo offernings.

Gave this beer a complete review on Nov 11, 2017. Poured into a pilsner glass.

Other than the fuller body, this beer’s 7.5% ABV flies under the radar. I like that the bottle lists all of the ingredients (e.g. 2-row Vienna) as well as the original and final gravity. But unfortunately, not the specific hops. 4.5

A – Pours clear golden with a three-finger semi-rocky white head. Well carbonated. 4.5

S – Clean, white bread, herbal/bays leaves, faint pepper. 4.25

T – Crackers, nutty, faintly sweet. 4.5

MF – Dry clean and crisp. Full-bodied for a kellerbier (reflective of its 7.5% ABV imperial status). I get a significant dry herbal aftertaste. 4.5
