KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2002
Malty and slightly estery aroma--warm, substantial and very pleasant...Color a rich orange-gold with fluffy head that stays "busy"...Rich, well-balanced malt profile dominates the flavor spectrum, but hops chime in with a restrained but sharp supporting snap that lasts through the finish. Zesty Saaz spice is a welcome side sensation. Body is satisfyingly full and its overall richness (along with healthy ABV) warms the soul as well as the body...So to those who lament the anemic character of too many pilseners: Take heart! A savior has arrived---although by all indications, for a limited time only...

Nice malty aroma, and a darker amber than the usual pilsner you see, with a white head, and nice lacing, thought the head diminished rather quickly. Lots more flavor than their regular pilsner, with malt dominating, though the hops came in at the finish, with a slight bitter hint. This was quite good, but is a Brewmaster’s Reserve limited release, so it won’t be around long.

A huge step up from thier ’regular’ pilsner. This was full of taste, with nice ABV. Very spicy and dry. A fine beer.

never heard of a ’double pilsner’ before. nice floral nose. pale in color. flavors are simple, but satisfying - malt and hops. the zippy bitterness and relatively high alcohol content balance the moderatly thick malty body. sort of like a cross between an IPA and ur-bock. very good. upgraded rating after my second bottle - excellent.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 17, 2002
Original rating was (accidentally) low on overall impression...Nose of wet (fresh) hops and malt. It’s a mouthful, with IPA-like bitterness levels but the smoothness of a Maibock...about time someone made a lager that took the hop character to IPA levels. Tastes like domestic rather than Euromalt, which is really my only gripe...a fabulous drink!
