Short's The CurlShort's The Curl

Brewed by:
Short's Brewing Company
Michigan, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial Pilsner

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.10%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed with 40% more ingredients to bump any ordinary pilsner to an imperial level.  We hop the kettle four times, using a good amount of Amarillo hops to balance the malty sweetness from the pilsen malt and  lots of flaked maze. At 7.5% ABV and 50 Bittering Units, this beer is still very quaffable and packed full of flavor thanks to the help of our house American lager yeast.  This beer was brewed upon the request of every ones favorite beer tender, Jeremy “the curl” VanSice
7.1% ABV
50 I.B.U.’s

A - Pours a pale golden hue with some clarity. The white head quickly reduces to a thin ring around the glass. Some lacing after each drink, but not much stick.

S - Grass, yeast, lemon peel, not a big nose on this brew.

T - Yeasty, citrus, lemon zest, bread dough, crackers. This is a medium bodied and smooth drinking pils with a bitter finish that lingers on the palate.

O - This Double Pils was a nice diversion from the norm. This is a unique brew and I would definitely try it again.
