COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Behold the subtle power of a beer whose simplicity of elements belies its complex spirit. Pilsener malt, noble Hallertau hops, lager yeast, and deep well water. By scaling up these simple ingredients we’ve turned the German pilsener "imperial" and made one of the world’s most refreshing styles of beer bigger, rounder and even more enjoyable.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Sampled on draft at the 2nd annual Virginia Beer Festival at Capital Ale House Midlothian. Pours a clear golden color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of grainy malts with strong earthy, spicy hop notes. Taste is very bitterly hoppy with spicy notes. Also fruity peach notes and caramel. Full bodied. Blue Mountain impresses.... again.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Draft. Pours a crystal clear yellow with a foamy white head. It has a light nose with hints of perfume and a bit of malt. Medium carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. Grain, alcohol, and light Saaz hop spiciness. Medium-short finish with a little lingering booziness. Great on a hot day and with an extra kick!

(on tap) A clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of straw, pale malt, hints of bubblegum and floral notes. Flavor is sweet (fruit, bubblegum, honey), and mildly hoppy (citrus). Pilsner malt flavor. Good body--medium to full, a little chewy, and carbonated. A very enjoyable pilsner.

It has it’s regular pilsner funk but packs a punch. It’s got a touch of sweetness before the bitter kicks in, it’s nice but nothing to write home about.

DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2014
750 cc from Whole Foods. Pours heavily effervescent gold with 3-finger frothy white head. Nose is pale malt, hops, caro syrup. Tastes somewhat sweet, with honey and sugar syrup notes, pale malt, heavy hops, and a complex finish. Starts and stays somewhat hot. Not a technical masterpiece by any means, but an interesting example of this style, and a well above average beer to get you to your limit tonight.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2012
On tap at RFD. Soft orange pour with a white head. Lots of lacing in the glass. Aroma is buttery, hoppy, a bit grassy and a bit sharp. Flavor has some mild hop bitterness with a bit of that buttery kick again. Good beer but needs a but more hop assertiveness to balance out the malt bill.
