bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Bomber Initial pour was clear dark gold with a fluffy lacy white head, The second pour had lots of floaties. Sweet caramel nose with a but of fruit and perfume. Full body, sweet taste of caramel, bread, There are enough hops to punch their way through all the residual sugar far a decent if somewhat grassy finish.

Bomber. Poured a murky amber color with a nice white top. Looked like a snow globe! Taste wasnt as appealing: too much caramel, sweet grains, earthy bitter finish. High carbonation, medium body.

kevinator (2171) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Decent strong pilsner. Malty hop aroma that went a little floral. Light amber color with good foamy head. Nice up front hops presence with maltiness that reminded me this was a pilsner. Clean crisp palate. Alcohol was well hidden and didnt affect the overall taste. Good beer that I would pick over normal pilsners.

Picked this up in the bottle from Goody Goody in Addison, TX. Sweet malty flavor with a nice hop punch, it would be a light IPA if there were such a thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clean nose with grassyness. Great mouthfeel. Good hidden alc with sweet malt. I wish the hops stood up more. Worth a try. ---That dog will hunt!

Very mild aroma for such a hoppy pilsner...consistent but not wowing. Great amber appearance with amazing head retention. Taste was hoppy with ample caramel malt. Roast provides a toffee aftertaste. Palette is consistent with an imperial pilsner, but compare to My Antonia for example it's very heavy and lacks crisp feeling. Imperial pilsners are not a frequent in the craft beer store...if you like the more refined pilsners (Heineken on steroids) this is a pleasant beer.

colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Little too sweet for my tastes. Nice hop presence, but lots of malts. Kind of like a light IPA, and not a very good one at that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Pours clear burnt orange with a creamy khaki head. Smells sweet, like caramel, and has some solid spicy hop notes. Taste is both sweet and spicy bitter. Medium-bodied with a smooth, creamy texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Rahr & Sons Pecker Wrecker finishes with some mild pilsner bite bitterness.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Bottle: Amberish, slight haze, moderate off-white head, frothy, nice lacing. Semi-sweet barnish aroma, a bit like alfalfa or something. Has this minor aroma of rabbit food. Very smooth hay/straw like maltiness on the tongue. A bit hoppy as well. Feels fairly full bodied. More hops than most for this style, which is fine. Strong lingering hay and straw, with a tinge towards grassiness. This is a big hoppy Pils. Thanks Bill for the bottle!

ben4321 (6252) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Whole Foods-Lamar (Austin), 2/20/12

Aroma: The nose is malty and grainy, smells almost like the wort, a weird nose for a finished beer
Appearance: It pours a bright golden-orange color with a nice thin white foam and fairly heavy lacing
Flavor: The taste is actually does have some depth, with grains, malts, yeast, and hops too, fairly balanced
Palate: The body is medium, it is fairly creamy and somewhat smooth, with a soft-to-average carbonation
Overall Impression: Despite the rather odd nose (it didnt really work for me at all), I actually enjoyed this beer a decent amount. It has a very nice looking pour, it drinks decently, and it tastes pretty good too, but that aroma doesnt make the best first impression. What a weird nose that is! The rest of the beer is solid.
Update: I wonder if I got a bad or old bottle, because I didnt see anything from anyone else about the odd nose?...
