2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Odell is better than this. I like the attempt at the style, but this is not a scoring based on style, itís based on all beers, and, this sir, is just not an amazing beer. The alcohol burns the throat. The biggest positive I can say about this beer is that it is not crazy sweet, which is impressive for the good mouthfeel. The more it warms, the more I can dig the attempt. I just canít get behind this, however, as I see the double pils as a waste of grain as a style. A pils is supposed to be approachable, light, refreshing. The double is harsh, heavy, and drunkifying. Odell: I heart you, so donít be mad at me for this lackluster review.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Clear gold. Small white head. Crisp, sweet. So much better than a regular pilsner. Strong alcohol taste. Refreshing without being plain.

Clean crisp clear-ish with a noble hops taste. Very much to style. Decent white head, light golden color, subtle malt tones and spicy hops influences.

Sampled at the brewery. Great logo. This is a big beer. Spicy hi character, big sweet pilsner malt flavor. Some fruity notes in the finish. Not bad.

1st beer of GABF weekend. Not really my favorite style but I got the big abv taster at the brewery bc I wanted to test the higher elevation theory the first hour I was in Colorado. As one would expect, it was boozy. Nice medium body with some creaminess. Pils hops pop nicely.

On tap at the brewery in Ft. Collins, CO. Golden pour with a short white head. Lemony citrus aroma with Pilsner malts and flowers. Citrus hop flavor at the forefront with an expected pilsner malt finish. Light bitterness lingers on the palate. Good overall.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Heavy gravity pilsner that retains its lager refreshment. Pours corn color, magnificently balanced palate that hides the 8.1 ABV very well! Not too hoppy, not too malty, a true original!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer is not too bad for a lager. Iím not a fan of that twang, but it is very restrained and there are other interesting things going on with this. The gravity lends an appealing roundness and the hops while subtle add a touch of chalk to the mouthfeel.
