Road trips are balls-out adventures loaded with unexpected twists, just like when this beer hit black ice and got spun!. It started out as an IPA recipe, but halfway down the road it blew a tire and a Pilsner yeast was pitched as a spare; an IPP yo! The fiery Pilsner backbone adds a nitrous-like boost to the van load of hops that would make any German pucker up when those hop afterburners singe their lederhosen!

Brewed with a Lager yeast at Ale temps using Sterling hops and Pilsner Malt to make this a crisp and hoppy twisted up seasonal treat.

bottle from half time liquor tallahassee, poured a bubbly golden color. a creative beer, aroma is light fruit, honey and grain. very pilsner grain like at the beginning but mellows into a fruity, yeasty blonde ale taste. refreshing and very carbonated.

Bottle. Very light yellow with a small head. Corny aroma and light malt. Clean flavors, but really light and lacks the ale fruity essence.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear, bubbly gold with a decent puffy head that dissipates quickly leaving a little bit of lacing. Smell is very grainy with some faint hop aromas in there - smells like a fairly generic pilsner to me. The taste was more of the same with grains and bit of light biscuity malts before a slightly bitter and very crisp finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium with a bunch of carbonation. This is a fairly drinkable brew though it’s a little tough to discern what they were trying to do with this one, as it doesn’t seem like a double pilsner (so says the bottle) to me.

Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a clear light gold with white head. Aroma of faint grapefruit. Flavor of semi-sweet malt and hops. Has medium body with med-high carbonation. Overall, a decient light IPA. Pretty good beer!

Bottle, Hazy yellow gold pour with a medium off-white head. A definite citrus odor. Not much on the front but it’s got a hoppy bitterness that really sticks to the back of your throat. To be honest, not that enjoyable.

beerbill (3574) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2008
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with GAManiac. Pours a hazy gold with lots of big fat carbonation bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass. Thin-moderate white head that disappeared after the first few sips and left virtually no lace. Pleasant citrus aroma with some other fruit notes detected as well. The flavor begins with some weak malt and is follwed by an acrid, flavorless bitter finish - kind of like chewing on the white pith of a grapefruit. Thin bodied and overcarbonated. This is not something I would come back to.

A really good blond ale. You can definitely taste the pilsener but strangely, it also tastes something like an ale. I wouldn’t say I love this beer, but it definitely gets points for being interesting and creative.

bconger (140) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Bottle. Honey-colored pour with a medium white head. Aromas of grain and hops. Rather thin palate with jazzy hops that linger on the back of the tongue. This beer can’t quite make up its mind what it is...it’s not Sweetwater’s best, but it’s a fun experiment and really not a bad beer.

Pours a golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma is honey, grain, and lots of spicy peppery hops. Flavor is grain, biscuit, pilsner malts, and a spicy peppery hop finish.
