pours a clear light golden color with a small white head. smells like sweeter german malts and floral hops, very delicate for an double, very unassuming. flavor is mild too, malty but in a refreshing way, not a filling way. very light hops in the finish. you would never guess this was over 8% abv. mouthfeel is nice, very prominent carbonation makes it easy drinking, and the just medium body is perfect for this beer. potentially a nice session beer despite its strength. odell does not have any bad beer, and this one is no exception. very well made, a good spring seasonal, but not the most exciting brew in their lineup. worth a try for sure though

12 oz. bottle tried 29 Nov 2011. Served in the 0.4 L EKU mug.

Large white head with a yellowish cast. Well carbonated. Clear bright yellow in color. Aromas of pale malt, lemon, grain, touch of ethanol. Starts malty sweet but rapidly turns herbaly bitter. Medium body, noticeable ethanol. Some mineral in the finish. Aftertaste is warming with a lingering herbal bitterness.

Easy to drink considering it's a bit over 8%.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Poured from 12oz bottle to Pilsner Glass.

A - The beer poured a vivid clear gold color with a 1 finger light tan colored head with good retention and lacing.

S - The beer had a grainy aroma and herbal character.

T/M - Similar to the nose the beer had a grainy flavor profile with some citrus zest with melds nicely with the malty sweetness. More sweet than I anticipated though. The beer finishes crisp with a sweet malty character lingering.

D - For a double this is very drinkable.

Overall, I enjoyed this beer. It was my first experience with a double pilsner and I look forward to the next release. l

White gold with loose snowy froth that sets and leaves whisps. Honey on cream crackers and wildflower and grass nose.
Butter, lemon curd, musk melon and country loaf cut by big lemongrass and aniseseed hops.
Citrus zest bitter, slight soap and licorice linger. Medium verging towards full, chewy, round, burny aftertaste, sticky.

Chewy body, herbal hops, syrupy malts, and a kick - nails the style. Can't drink more than one, but shouldn't anyway. Cloys a bit; hops could clean up a bit more, but I'm gonna give it the benefit of the doubt and put that down to age (labelled 5/26/11 - forums tell me that's a best-by date.)

330ml bottle bought online from MyBreweryTap.com

Poured a slightly hazy golden honey colour. Slightly off white head poured with a whipped meringue like top then faded slowly to light covering which lasted throughout... lots of sticky lacing patches coat the glass all the way down...

Aroma - Spicy tart fruits (oranges peel, pears, lime), very grassy (freshly cut), lots of floral notes, sea saltiness, quite rubbery, chalky notes, some soapiness, peppery hop bitterness, very herbal - some hints of basil, some tobacco notes, some graininess...

Taste - Grassy and peppery hop bitterness up front followed by lots of herbal notes, light biscuity malts, some grainy sweetness, marzipan traces, tart fruits (grapefruit, lime, pear), some alcohol warmth just coming through, faint tobacco...

Feel - Pretty sharp and dry... medium \ full bodied... a bit cloying to be very drinkable..

Overall - A decent enough double pilsner but nothing earth shattering... worth a try though..

12 oz. bottle shared at PDX BA bottle share, 9.9.11.

One finger pure white head, small bubbles, medium dissipation with decent lacing. Very hoppy nose for style, big floral notes, some malty sweetness in the middle. Taste mirrors nose, one of the most hoppy pilseners I've had, quite tasty. Mouthfeel is medium, real good effervescence, fairly dry finish, though the ABV is fairly noticeable. Another winner from Odell, definitely worth a try.
