American Double / Imperial Pilsner

Similar to a Pilsner in appearance, but expect a more pronounced malty backbone and an intense bitterness. Malt flavors tend to be quite sweet in many examples. Alcohol can be quite aggressive and lend some spicy notes to the flavor.

Average alcohol by volume (abv) range: 6.5-9.0%   [ ? ]
