Pours hazy gold colour with good fluffy head. Sweet honey like nose. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Sweet malt flavour and big bitterness following through that lingers. Not bad but not sure I’d get another BeerdedDave (2010) - Beckley, USA - JAN 14, 2015
on tap at Morimoto in Philadelphia; gold color; light, floral hop aroma; smooth, light malt with bitter, floral hops and citrus notes; dry, bitter finish Butters (4062) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Shared with Yuriko. Sweet almost honey perfumy nose with a big dose of floral hops for some balance. But it just doesn’t meld all that well. It’s like a super sweet syrupy beer immediately followed by an uber hoppy earthy bitterness, rather than a sweet and hoppy balance. Good for what it is I guess. But definitely not a style that I’m seeking out. The bottle itself is the biggest selling feature. samsmith33 (772) - - OCT 22, 2014
Appearance: slightly hazy yellow. Bubbly. Big white airy head that lasts awhile.
Aroma: fruitty ethers, fresh rain. Slight woodyness, but light.
Taste: crisp, grapefruit, lemon, some pine-like earthyness. A little tart with a bite at the end,
Feel: Very crisp and lively. Excellent with dinner (pulled pork).
Excellent beer. Bottle is also awesome. Wing top stopper allows me to save some for a glass tomorrow. Hail Rogue and the Iron Chef for another job well done.

"maltier than expected, but still heavy on the hops and bitterness. Not worth the price ($12) as Sam Adams IP is better. This one didn’t taste fresh. OK."

750ml bottle.Very good, a top Pilsner, 8.8% is nice! But..$20 for 750ml is a little bit much!?!?

Pours a lightly murky, light golden with only swirling remnants of a white head. Bouquet is more akin to an APA. Flat, flat, flat. Moonshiny quality. Much like the lid was left of a high gravity pale ale all night sitting on the deck. This is the most awful beer I’ve ever drunk. I would’ve been better off with a schlitz. jsnicholas (709) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle (750ml): First I want to say the bottle is very nice, ceramic I think. Pours a most clear golden with a nice white head. This is not your average pilsner, not light , but medium bodied Some fruitiness and malts with a slight bitterness. Nice.

Pours a clear gold, with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, and hops, with a bit of sweetness. Taste is rich and full, a little bitter, with a rich palate. Smooth and drinkable. This one is a bit different than many. Thumbs up! mattyhennessy (377) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2014
Pros clear golden with a white head. Tastes as the name suggests, like a pilsener but double. Extra malt and extra sweetness comes through. Moreso than the additional hops. Slightly fruity aroma, malt driven flavour and a crisp finish. Excellent, particularly coming from someone not fond of pilseners
