Imperial German Pilsner. After driking a few glasses of our popular golden lager Bill’s Pils, we wondered what would happen if we took everything we loved about the sytle and increased the amount of ingredients. The result is Kaiser Bill’s Pils, a stronger, hoppier golden lager. We used about as much pilsner malt that could fit in our mash tun to boost the ABV above 7%, while still maintaining a beautiful golden color. Then we added a proportionally lager dose of Euro hops for some extra bitterness and intense aromatics. We suggest that this beer be paired with the Lobster Crab Cakes. Prost!
7.6 %ABV, 58 IBU’s

Draft at Capone’s. Pours a straw yellow with a minimal white head. Nose is fresh grassy hops. Taste is slightly bitter, sweet, and surprisingly dark and complex for a pilsner. Alcohol is well hidden. I almost want to say its a roasted flavor, but it definitely is a standout german pilsner.

golden pour. Aroma is fresh hopped, pils - very clean. Mouthfeel is crisp. Flavor is lightly bitter with a leafy hoppiness, complimented by a good clean pils malt. Nice.
