Style: American Double / Imperial Pilsner

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.70%

Notes / Commercial Description:
With its classic recipe and impeccable craftsmanship, this summer seasonal is a study in delicately balanced contrasts. Up front, Pilsner malt makes a clear yet restrained statement, answered by the steady, harmonious hum of Saaz hops, traces of which linger in the dry, crisp finish.

Poured into a tulip glass.

The beer is a clear golden color with a fizzy white head that slowly recedes. Light spots of lacing stick to the glass initially. The aroma has a faint notion of malts before really getting into some lemongrass and black pepper, notably. The taste is like the aroma in that a real black pepper body takes over. Traces of banana, grains, and Saaz hops can be found. The mouthfeel is fairly light and dry. Overall, there's a bit too much pepper in this for me to really enjoy.

Clear golden colored beer with a small white colored head, yes looks like a Lager.

Smell is mild biscuit malt and noble hop aroma. Slightly spicy scent. Scents of grass and flowers with a touch of saffron.

Starts out clean with a strong wheat biscuit taste. Mildly sweet with a strong grass and floral flavor. Bitter in the back of the throat but it isn't very aggressive. Alcohol is undetectable. Very mild for the style.

Mouthfeel is about right.

Overall a tasty and mild beer. Super easy to drink and refreshing.

750 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 2/2014. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon zest, pear, apple, pepper, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, herbal, and floral/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with bright and balanced notes of hop, malt, and yeast esters; with great strength. Taste of lemon zest, pear, apple, pepper, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, herbal, and floral/yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, light fruits, pepper, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, and herbal on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of bright hop, malt, and yeast ester flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very crisp, smooth and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial Pilsner style. All around great balance of crisp and bright hop, malt, and yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
