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.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy medium golden/yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit dough, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of earthy hops and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big lemon, orange peel, pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit dough, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7.5%. Overall this is a delicious imperial pilsner. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Really great balance of German malts and noble hops, and not too aggressive. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Briney grain nose. Hazy orange, medium head, little retention. Grass, grain, intense, bitter. Aspirin finish. Light body, moderate carbonation, powdery mouthfeel. Different, yes. Quaffable, no. Enjoyable, not really. IBUs must be off the charts and not in a good way.

(Thank you!) Sampled draft @ Billie's Craft Beer Fest 2017. Golden, white head. Nose is nice green grass hop, oily clean lager, mellow corn profile. Taste is oily white pepper, wheat, clean, lingering mellow grass, oily corn, very nicely done. Quite liked it, liked it more than most of their other overhyped style at the festival.

Dogbrick (14326) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2017
Sample as Killapilz at Bob's Bar during the "Columbus Voodoo Debut!" on 08/31/2017. The beer is a clear straw color with a medium thin white head that burns away quickly to a wispy film. Spotty lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, fruit and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of mildly spicy hops, malt and fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a short grassy hop aftertaste. Decent overall.
