A- Looks like an inviting pilsner. Golden color with a white head that hangs around throughout the drink. Clean

S- Sweet pilsner malt and subtle earthy hops meld together nicely. Not overly grainy like some pilsners tend to be.

T- Sweet and wonderfully malt forward. Buttery and juicy. Full flavor. Earthy, herbal hops give for a late spice and make for great balance. Peppery almost.

M- Love the feel. Alcohol is subtle with no esters at all. Creamy yet crisp. Rich. Light and so refreshing.

O- Paired with a spicy burger at The Foundry in Westport, KC. Simply put, my favorite pils ever.

A: Fluffy, three-finger head. Plenty of carbonation. Clear, golden color.

S: This is where this beer is slightly lacking; I can't detect any major aromas. It just has a clean, crisp scent.

T: A little syrupy when it first hits the tongue but in a good way. Heavy maltiness with some booziness towards the end.

M: Crisp, clean and refreshing with a lot of carbonation.

O: I'm not a pilsner fan by any means but this one is really good. It has the crisp and refreshing characteristics of a pilsner but isn't watery or boring. It could use a bit more complexity in the smell and taste department but I would still drink this again.

there is something off about this beer. I love pilsners and I seek them out as much as possible. I also really dig most of the brews from Odell. This one however, the Double Pils is a disappointment. I recently had very fresh on tap and fresh in the bottle and in both cases the alcohol imparted a medicine like taste and smell. I don't enjoy it and will not buy this one again. it promises to be much better for a Double Pils from Odell. maybe it's the most recent batch.
