Where to Dig Up More About This Beer
Heavy Seas - Small Craft Warning Über Pils
Clipper City Brewing Company LP
Heavy Seas Beer
4615 Hollins Ferry Rd. Suite B
Baltimore, MD
Est. 1994

Postmortem Brew Review
Dark yellow to gold color.
Grain and malt smell with slight grassy scent.
Bubbly, two fingered white head that dissipates slowly.
Good amount of lacing on glass.
Taste is a bit bitter, leaning towards the hops.
Above average amount of carbonation.
Medium bodied. Slight alcohol presence.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Definitely not a typical pilsener, but then again, it is listed on the label as an "Über Pils". I am not sure where I stand on the style. Pilseners by definition are considered light and refreshing for the most part, but this adds a hoppy twang; a bittering twang at the end of each sip.  This beer is listed as an Imperial Pilsener, so the over-the-top dry hop notes may be where the style leads in its taste and body.

It will drink heavier and hoppier and alcoholic-ier (7.0% ABV) than any pils you may have had before.

Reap one for yourself and let me know how you feel.
