COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Style: Über Pils ABV: 7% IBUs: 35 Availability: Year-round Hops: Warrior, Palisade, French Strisselspalt, Saaz, Simcoe, Cascade Malts: 2-row, Munich, Caramalt Arguably our most well-balanced beer, Small Craft Warning seems at once hop-forward and malt-forward; our brewers debate over which flavor force prevails in the beer. Small Craft exemplifies a robust pilsner—it’s crisp, well-carbonated, and slightly sweet. The beer is characterized by a firm malt backbone and a pronounced hop character. A fine aroma, from an array of hops, completes this quaffable beer.

WOW, big hop boquet on pouring this bottle conditioned light carmel colored beer. Nice medium mouth feel to it, nice malty flavor, alcohol definatly present in this one, nice and balanced, poor head retention but otherwise a perfect storng lager with a style of it’s own.

12 oz bottle. Golden and clear, with a lasting white head.Clean big malt and noble hop aroma, with a definite lager yeast note. Big and malty flavor with a nice noble hop flavor and bitterness. Has a German character to it....a hoppy maibock? I like this a lot.

I really enjoyed this beer. Bought it simply because of the bottle, the name, and the fact that I hadn’t had it before; glad I did. It pours a huge white head that lasts til the last sip. Dark ginger ale in color/caramel. Hints of hops and citrus in the nose. Smooth buttery mouthfeel, really nice. Good lacing with a complex finish. Sweet at first, then the bitter hops take over before the strong alcohol (7%) ends it. Really, a nice beer.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2005 Holy crap, I loved this beer on draught. A definate surprise as I had ordered it after a wonderful scotch ale, expecting something crisp and light, never having heard of this beer beforehand. What I got was a very complex concoction, lots of floral hop aroma, nice and bubbly, very thick and full bodied. I loved it!

Small Craft Warning Uber Pils is brewed with German Pils and Carapils malts. It is then hopped with four different hops including Amarillo, Saaz, Hersbrucker, and Tettnag hops. It comes in at a hefty 7% abv, but like the OD Spring Brew, you would never believe you were drinking a beer of that strength. The aromas, flavors, and alcohol are on a higher level, but remain very balanced and drinkable. Uber Pils pours to a beautiful, bright, deep golden color with a thick and creamy white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose on this beer is fantastic with lots of herbal/grassy hop aromas that flood the nose. The palate is firm, with lots of crisp pilsner malt flavor, on a slick and full body. Uber Pils finishes with more great pilsner malt flavor up front, then ends with a wonderful, zesty, herbal hop bite that linger on the tongue. A very impressive beer with tons of character. I really love how big this beer is, yet how round and polished it is as well. These beefy, brawny lagers are a welcome addition to the craft beer world. Uber Pils is a natural with any hearty German fare, or grilled meats.

Bottle: Orange with a thin head. Nice mostly hoppy aroma. All-around nice drinker ... well-balanced hop-malt beer. Flavors fall into the American Pale family, I’d have thought ... quite excellent.

12oz brown bottle purchased as part of a multi-pack at Florian’s. Translucent amber body with a half inch of off-white head that leaves a small amount of lacing. Smells like apricot and caramel malt with hints of yeast. Tastes like caramel malt with supporting citrus hops. Rich sweetness dominates the flavor. Seems like a hint of mint in this brew too. Full flavor is complimented by a creamy mouthfeel and a moderate amount of carbonation. Overall a well-made drinkable beer.

Light Malt Aroma with a touch of spiciness. Pours a nice gold color with hints of Red. Flavor is as advertised. Nice Malt Sweetness not overly done, but smooth. The best quality, however is the incredibly crisp, clean not overly bitter finish. Well done.
