Pilzilla, a beer Matt has dubbed a bastardized German, Czech, Polish Pils. There are a lot of things going on in the dude’s head, man. It carries all the traits that they call for in a beer and then voodooized. This is a fun, unique interpretation of the beer that Matt fell in love with in Europe. It will take on it own identity and grow each year in varieties of hop and alcohol. Soon to take over Tokyo. Not yet in theaters near you.

Ingredients: premium German 2 row barley, dash of Vienna, 9 varieties of German, Czech, and Polish hops. Out house lager blend of yeast.

Institute, Philadelphia tap ($6): Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma is resin and citrus, along with some bread. When I was drinking it, I didn’t realize it was a pilsner, mostly because I misread the name of the beer. Hoppiness and bitterness is strong. Good.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark slightly hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is a bit odd, some appley notes, cider, some sweet bread, herbal hops, a touch of pine. Flavor has much the same, a bit less apple which is good, more of the herbal spicy hops. Medium body and a crisp carbonation.

Ontbeertaster (2361) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2012
Tap, pour is golden, the flavour is very strong and finish is a bit harsh, not too too drinkable, it has a corny and a nice hoppiness to it, overall quite yummy

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle. Pours pours hazy orange with an aggressive head. Aroma has some floral notes with a tad of asringency. Taste has a good bit of caramel malt with a hop bite in the finish. There is a lot more flavor than expected.

Not much of a pilsner guy, but for this I am. This has a good amount of hops in it that actually gives this style a zing.

This beer defies categorization, and I like it all the more for it. A lager you always wished for - one with extra ooomph. A very nice balance of toasty start with a bitter finish not normally seen in a lager or a pilsner, or a keller, or whatever the heck this is. I really enjoyed this beer and wish I had gotten a six-pack instead of a single. Highly recommended.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2012
12 oz. Bottle. A strange brew! But I liked it more and more. Pepper, pine, floral, caramel and banana scent. Cloudy deep copper pour with a big foamy head. Gorgeous. Light/medium body, dry finish. Peppery, floral hop, taste with a pine bitter finish and a touch of that sweet caramel as it warmed.
