Harpoon Leviathan Big Bohemian Pilsner

Harpoon Leviathan Big Bohemian PilsnerTonight has been a lazy one thus far. Except for doing a couple hundred crunches, I’ve pretty much just sat on my ass. It’s Monday, so the wife is at yoga. The Bruins are on the telle. Earlier tonight I was watching a taping of Beer Tap TV (Beer Buzz Episode 75) via UStream. Not only are these guys hilarious, they are 110% anti-beer-douche. LOVE IT.

Tonight I’m back to the beer reviews. Yesterday I couldn’t even think of drinking after the bash on Saturday. I figured a 9% ABV pilsner would be a good place to jump right back in. This is one pretty beer. It has a head like I’ve never seen on a pilsner. It pretty much hasn’t budged since i poured it ten minutes ago. It’s not going away. Super frothy with a ton of lacing. As you can see from the picture, the color is seriously light.

The flavor isn’t at all what I would expect from this type of beer. Quite complex actually. The first thing that I thought was citrus, but I’m also picking up some pine in there too. Kind of a weird mix, but it’s working for me. It’s full flavored, but I really can’t decide whether its mostly sweet or mostly bitter. Definitely somewhere in between.

At the end of the day, I don’t think I’d drink more than a couple. Still a decent beer.
