This 2002 vintage bottle was won in a drawing at Fredfest and subseqently dropped on the cement floor. Amazingly, the bottle didn’t break but the cap popped off, and most of the beer was saved and consumed by whoever was nearby. This bottle will be known as "Double Capsize Double Pilsner." The beer is cloudy golden with a thick white head and floral yeasty aroma. There is a substantial sweet malt flavor complemented by very nice hop bitterness that held up well over the years. A pleasant accident.

A different pilsner for sure. It has a hop bite to it, that I’m not so sure belong in a pilsner. The finish even left a bitter aftertaste. The higher alcohol comes through in the taste.

strong pils, i guess thats why they call it a double, its really have some good kick to it, European aroma, kinda belgiany, taste is bitter with some light maltiness.

Bottle - I really enjoyed this beer. Yellow body with a white head. Hoppy and malty with a nice finish. Couldn’t taste the alcohol.

Terminus (3446) - 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.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Golden orangish color with a mid sized white head. Ligh buttery sweet malts, lemon zest and grass in the aroma. Light sweetness initially with a very subtle hint of butterscotch, some light citrus behind it. Pretty well balanced, moderate bitterness in the finish. Not bad.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Brewmaster’s reserve 2004. A light amber she pours, with a frothy head of off-white fluff. A nose of grainy sweet maltiness, with light citric notes. Full bodied, yet crisp on the tounge, there is some grassiness mingling with the alcohol. A definite improvement over the Rogue I have tried, the only other imperial pils to meet my acquaintance. Big for the style, and hardly reminiscent of the pilsners I am accustomed to, this beer is nevertheless quite drinkable and easy to like. Could use some more hopping to address the maltiness.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - APR 16, 2006
Bottle, 04. Golden pour, decent head. Light malty aroma with a good amount of grassy peppery hops. My bottle held up well, and the malts only showing as touch of age in aroma and flavor - it has been in a fridge the whole time I have had it. Similar flavors - light malty flavors, that seem to showcase grassy peppery and a touch earthy hops. Clean finish. Fairly decent I felt.

Hazy, honey golden color. Not too much active carbonation. An aroma with slightly more hops than the typical pilsner. Pretty citrus-y for a pilsner, then again that can be expected coming from Full Sail. This is my favorite pilsner as of yet.

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....
