Hazy yellow body with a half inch of pure white head. Lemon, fruity esters, spicy hops, alcohol. Aggressively bitter finish. Medium plus body. Sweet and even a tad syrupy. Heavy grassy and floral notes. Could use more subtlety and nuance.

Released in Sweden 3 october 2014.

Amore Mio!

Hazy dark orange beer with a two finger high, fluffy head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

Nose: Caramel malt, herbs, grass and grain.
Taste: Soft, creamy tast of grass, orange, sweet malt, passion fruit, citrus and bread.
Body: Medium body with a soft yet complex structure. Light carbonation. Chewy taste.

Great pilsner! Of course that's what you could expect with a collaboration of Birra Del Borgo and Dogfish Head...

Hoppy pilsner. While it makes for a nice pilsner, the difference is that it has a slight bitter hop bite. Grassy with a nice malt profile. This is a really nice beer.

Is that a pils?
Interesting beer, of an ocher color and a thick whitey head.
Smell is malty, hoppy and full with fruity notes of passion fruit, citrus and atemoya.
Taste is more difficult to detail; definetely malty and fruity.
Hoppiness and bitterness levels are a bit disappointing, body and carbonation are at nice level.

Pilsner glass pour, this appears golden, slightly hazy, with plenty if visible carbonation. Head is white and lacing is rung around the glass's walls.
Smells complex. Earthy hops, grass, herb/ mint, grain.
Tastes grassy and grainy, with floral notes and some added citrus (orange zest). Sweetness like corn from the pilsner malts, background biscuit, some spice. Lots here.
Feels chewy and smooth, with a slightly bitter finish.
This is a terrific imperial pilsner, and I grab one nearly everytime I see it on the store shelf.

My in-laws always like to bring me new beer from their travels, and this one is from one of their trips to NYC. It pours from the bottle with a cloudy, muted, orange-yellow color and is topped by a giant, dense, foamy head. The aroma has a decent yeast presence, some dull, earthy/leafy hops, a little bit of bready sweetness, and a tiny hint of alcohol. The flavor has a nice contrast of dense, woodsy bitterness against a chewy, yeasty breadiness. The light carbonation allows a mouth-filling, resinous texture to develop. Overall, this one is a bit hefty, with a rustic and bold flavor profile that is quite satisfying.
