   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Clear, bright, honey-golden appearance, fresh, chalk-white head, 1/4" and slowly dissapating. Aroma: lively hoppiness, Saaz, Id bet, floral, herbal, and sweet, distinctive and impressive. Big mouthfeel, full blast of tantalizing hops that sweetly ring the mouth, before drying out. This play on the palate returns in every sip , and before long the larger than average ABV starts to ring forward and rise above the flavor, projecting itself as a major player in the overall profile. Now, Im not sure why the meaning of this brews name escaped me so far, but I get it now! Vry tasty, with a rich, amber flavor, slightly buttery, but classically pilsneresque, with an extra edge.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Ahhh-yeaah - Super-Saaz Me! Bright orange copper with big foamy head and thick sheets of lace that slowly sink down the sides of the glass. Pepper and grapefruit aroma. Palate is pretty thick, maltwise, and sweeter than expected. The big saaz is there to dry it out though. Very aggressive, nearly astringent in its power, resiny and hints of orange peel and ultimately ending with lemon and a peppery dryness.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Pale golden, brilliantly clear. Floral hops, a bit of saaz-y stink, and some alcohol. Moderate-bodied, quite bitter actually, with bits of honey and apricot. Retains quite a bit of pilsner qualities for its strength. (Obviouslly not as light on the tongue as something like Pilsner Urquel, but thats obvious...) Good, but about 6 oz is perfect, now what to do with the other 16....

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Pours a clear light orange with a big fluffy mostly white head. Slightly metallic with a fruity malty caramel aroma. Citrus flavor with some malt sweetness. Bitter hop finish. Good.

Terminus (3566) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 5, 2004
22 oz bottle-thanks to Mromero548 for bringing this one down from Colorado. A clear orange hue(looks like an IPA) with aggressive carbonation. sweet malts and lemon grass aroma. full body, but slightly cloying. short finish but there are some spicy hops in it. lots of malt for a double pilsner. I prefer the rogue over this one.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2004
Bright brassy orange body and soft snow white head. Nice nutty and wheaty aroma. Firm bitterness, band-aid, honey, maple, and apricot qualities in the flavor. Has some hidden complexity. Interesting beer but grows a bit tedious after awhile.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Pours a light amber with perfect clarity. Nice head but hardly any lacing. Smells malty with a hint of hops and some alchohol. Tastes like a combination of a Pilsner and a Barleywine. Wow. Alcohol is definatly present. I'm quite serious that it's a definate mix of pilsner and barleywine. It has the definate characteristics of both. Name a taste of either and it's there. Yes, I'm serious. The alcohol is not masked at all, though. Mouthfeel is nice and full while being quite crisp. Drinkability suffers only from the strong alcohol content.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Golden in color with a fluffy head and lots of tiny bubbles. Very hoppy aroma with a hint of alcohol. Grapefruity bitter flavor with a buttery alcohol burn at the rear. Decent beer.

Reid (2317) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 10, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Ok the 2003 Reserve is here!! and its way stronger..weighing in at 7.2% Comes in the 22 oz brown bomber..with the new moderd looking Full Sail label..nice bright blue and yellow. This is a wondeful pilsner bier to behold deep dark honey golden colour..with a nice sized white head..nice carbonation strings..head goes fast but some lovelly lacing is around all down my glass. Very livelly aroma of spicy hops is evident..also a nice doughy aroma. Wow this is one hoppy pilsner..the hops are very "sharp"..alcohol aftertatse but its well balanced..theres even some remanents of malt after wards..alcohol warming in the throat. Nice and spicy on the palte but it smooths out near the end. Very nice drinkable beer..what is this though "Double Pilsner" it says on the label..Imperial Pilsner anyone? Rerate 2017....weird but still an excellent beer...after 13 years still a solid 4

Realy not that impressed.I really wanted to like this one, but it seemed one dimensional. The "Saazy-ness" was not impressive.
