Tilted Smile Imperial Pilsner (part of Uinta Brewing Co’.s Crooked Line series) pours golden with a thick head and some mild lacing. Saaz hops provide an herbal mouthfeel which is sweetened by the Pilsen malt. Carbonation is mild for a pale lager and the 9 percent ABV offers little alcohol burn. This is a very sneaky imperial pilsner. The brew comes in a 750 ml caged-and-corked bottle and is available year round. I’m excited to now be able to find the Crooked Line in my market. Is it in yours?
