Mill St. Doppel Pils

This pilsner from Toronto, Ontario's Mill St. Brewery is "double hopped" and contains a vigorous 7% alcohol. Sold in 355mL bottles, Mill St.'s Doppel Pils is a very clear gold coloured lager. It has very little carbonation and a quickly receding white head.

Doppel Pils' crisp, evergreen aroma features some undeniable boozy notes. As far as I'm concerned, this stuff is the pilsner equivalent of an India pale ale--it features considerable hop bitterness and strong alcohol content. The flavour has some grain sweetness, like a traditional pilsner, but the hops add an extra dimension.

This is a pretty great brew--it's strong, flavourful, and an interesting, uncommon style. I've had little experience with strong pilsners, but now I'm thirsty for more.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
