Draft Bear

$11.99 from Green’s, Buford Highway, Atlanta, GA, USA. Silver foil covered neck in the corked & caged 750 mL bottle. Nasty, synthetic cork -I dislike these.

Partially poured into the 22oz Terrapin snifter – seems like the perfect glass for this beer. A slightly darker, golden pour with good head and some lace.

I can’t quite nail the nose, but it does seem a bit fruity.

A little more bitter, but at the same time also a little smoother than the other Imperial Pilsners I have had. The malt liquor, sweet, cloying elements seem to be quashed a little. Finish is actually quite lingering and metallic. Almost a little pepper in the finish too. A bit more IPA influence than I was expecting for the style.

An interesting diversion but expensive for what it is, and not the best Imperial Pilsner I have tasted. NOT Mikkeller’s best brew.
