COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

neuromatt (1107) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
On tap at the brewpub, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear golden with a small white head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has big notes of noble hops along with pale malts. The flavour is fairly bitter with noble hop notes paired with pale malts. The finish is mildly bitter with slight pepperiness. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth texture and average carbonation. Overall, a nice imperial pils, but not terribly complex. 2014-04-26

NeuroPliny (142) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Tasted at Voodoo with ML. Pours clear gold. Aroma is hops, hay, and malt. Flavour is hoppy with a crisp pilsner-esque finish. Decent mix of European hops make this one.

Steasy66 (847) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Orange straw with small white head. Aroma has a good amount of citrus and a bit of malt. Sweet, fairly piney and resinous. Seems like an IPA with lager yeast.

Strykzone (4836) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Received in a trade from jdb288. Golden and hazy with a little white head. A floral and fruity aroma is not big but interesting. First sip brings passion fruit with a complex hop profile. Noble hops that have some sulfur, tart citrus hops. They are also spicy. So much hop complexity in a style that is usually not very exciting. Some yeast is tasted and a little honey. This is about hops and they are all over the place. By the time it hit 50 F things smoothed out some, or my taste buds were fried by the noble hops. And by 55 it was fruity and spicy hops. What a fun beer that definitely bends the style definition. It is almost an Eastern European version of an IPA.

The beer pours decently with a nice orange hazy color to it, not much of a head to it, more of a lazy white ring around the top with almost no lacing. The smell is decent with a nice yeasty, grassy, floral smell to it. It is potent yet well balanced at the same time. The taste is good with a nice yeasty taste, some mild bitterness, a mild grassy, floral taste that lingers on the back end. There is something else, a touch sweet that I can’t place over the bitterness. The mouthfeel is very clean, crisp, and a tad bitter that sticks around. Overall, a great pilsner with a good taste.
