look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

A-Golden yellow with a white head that dissipates quickly
S-Not too much in the aroma department, smells like yellow Pilsner
M-Quite watery and not much body
T-Light and refreshing taste, subtle malt and sweetness. Bitterness comes in at the end and is mellow and dry
O-I had hopes for this beer as it is advertised as dry hopped, but alas my instincts were correct in assuming this was just a ploy to seem trendy, because the end result was a straight forward Pilsner

Picked up a few cans at the LCBO. I enjoyed their first offering, Hops and Robbers, last summer, and it's humid enough outside that a good pilsner would do me fine.

Poured into a Steamwhistle pilsner glass. Bright golden, clear, with a thin head of foam that recedes quite quickly into a fine ring. Looks like a pilsner, that's for sure.

Nose is biscuit/cracker, floral and grassy hops, mild sweetness and a bit of honey.

Not a bad pilsner by any stretch, but I can't say it's anything to be all that excited about - certainly not a "breakout" beer, at any rate. It tastes like a pretty standard pils - clean, crisp, and finishes with a good, though one-dimensional hop bite. Carbonation is about right for the style. But that's about it, I can't really say anything else about this beer. It's just a serviceable, but average pilsner, that's good enough to have every so often, but really nothing to seek out.

I bought a can of the at the beer store in Brantford whilst in Canada for my son's hockey tournament. It poured a hazy orangish with thin white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had hints of lemon. The taste is nicely balanced and easy to drink. There was slight bread base with slight citrus bitterness. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.

A- Pours a relatively clean copper/gold color and the head is quite impressive, being a soapy white color and reasonably dense with really good retention, settling into a frothy layer over the brew. The carbonation factor appears to be reserved, with several columns of bubble rising slowly to the top. The lacing is not very impressive, which is a shame...all the froth immediately slides back into the beer.

S- The initial aromas are quite sweet and malty, which surprises me a bit. There are some bitter hop aromas in the background but I don't feel that they are very pronounced. There is a citrus quality blended in there as well and some yeasty aromas too. The finish smells rather clean, which is a good thing I suppose!

T- Ahh there it is! The bittering leafy hops come through right up front on the palate....however, they are more subdued than I thought they would be. There is a generous zesty citrus flavor, that is blended very well into a malt sweetness. Definitely this has some flavor right through to the finish, which lingers with some bitterness for awhile afterwards.

M- Medium to full bodied, this is actually quite filling to drink! The carbonation is small yet zingy on the palate....breaking the flavor down in my mouth rather nicely! It is really malty and feels like I have eaten a pile of bread dough with a bitter finish!

O- This is a filling beer which would limit the amount that I could drink in a sitting, however I really like this brew! It is a richly flavored pilsner, with reasonably mild carbonation. This is the first beer I've tried from Double Trouble and it gets thumbs up from me! I recommend!

Can: Poured a clear bright yellow color pilsner with a medium pure white foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of lightly sweet mal notes with very timid hops presence. Taste is also dominated by lightly sweet notes with also unnoticeable hops presence. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad but nothing really standing out that would make me want to go back and try this beer again.

A - Translucent straw yellow with one finger of eggshell coloured head.

S - Floral hop bitterness, bready sweetness and a touch of spice.

T - A good bitterness for the style with a floral presence and a big bready malt sweetness.

M - Light body with some stickiness. Moderate carbonation.

Poured from the can into a tall Carlsberg glass.

Giant bone white and foamy head, easily making three to four fingers with large retention and island capped head. Lots of staying power as well. Body is a great dark brass gold and super crystal clear with a mix of slow and fast rising carbonation. Real great looking brew.

Nice soft pilsner like malts, not much hop herbality. Not much bread like notes, and kind of subdued nose, but otherwise fine.

Body on the palate seems expectedly light and not much flavor. Muted crispness with a little bit of prickly carbonation. Beer seems a little flat. Some of the herbality hop bent is present on the finish with some little spiced like undertones, but fairly mild.

Overall an ok pilsner but nothing mindblowing here.

Best before Aug. 2016.

Bright orange body with a frothy, bubbly head. Biscuity malt and lightly hoppy, creamy. Expected more bite from a dry hopped pils but certainly easy to drink.
