Heavy Seas Beer - Small Craft Warning - Über Pils

Purchased From: Harvest Fine Wines & Spirits
Serving Type: 12 oz. bottle, poured into a fluted glass

Über Pils is an Imperial Pilsner-style beer that pours a medium, radiant golden straw body with a healthy off-white head. The foam is creamy in consistency with solid retention and light lacing. The nose is very feint and understated. A light hop aroma is present with underlying hints of sweet lightly toasted malts.

There's a big malty pilsner flavor up front. The beer is dry and bitter with the traditional infusion of Noble hops, creating a classic balance with hints of dandelions. The beer is crisp and bubbly and creates a refreshing edge. The finish is dry with some astringency and very little alcohol heat.

Final Verdict: B-
