Straw color. Thin light head. Amazingly delicious pilsner. I would never have guessed the alcohol content was so high (8.1%)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Clear-ish gold with dirty streaks of yeast. Fluffy white head. Grassy, floral hop aroma with caramel underpinning. Tastes initially sweet and caramel malty before a slightly muddled mixture of lager crispness and hop bitterness washes it all away in waves. Drinks much easier than the strength. I doubt this was in any way fresh but tasted like a good attempt at the style, albeit one that didnít quite gel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
28th August 2011
Hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Crispy palate. Rich lagerish malt - never cloying thanks to the crispness. The hops are well balanced for the style, that is not dominant subtle pine and a little orange citrus. Finishes crisp with mild nutty malt in the aftertaste and a carbonated sting. Double Pilsner eh? Works for me - refreshing!

Bottle. Pours a golden haze with white head. Very malty/bready aroma. Flavor is of strong malts with some other flavors such as caramel and a few others I canít identify. Overall a nice double pils, would definitely drink it again, ideally fresher next time.

Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Not much on the nose. Kind if sweet and malty on the tongue. Finishes clean. Not what I was expecting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Moderately rich yellow. Not super thick, but reasonably oily and appropriate for its strength. Flavor has the basic pilsner proportions with a little woodiness. Drinkable but not my favorite. (bottle at the Ale Jail backyard beer festival, 2012)
