Tilted Smile

Today I'll cover Tilted Smile, an Imperial Pilsner by Unita Brewing. Unita Brewing produces a ton of different beer varieties, including the Crooked Line, their big bottle series. 

Tilted Smile, as an imperial pilsner, is a beefed up version of a pilsner. It is heavy on the malt and sits at about 9% ABV. While a pilsner can be fantastic, an imperial pilsner is a nice change of pace. It maintains some of the "drinkability" of a pilsner (as much as I hate using that term) while increasing the complexity of the beer. Tilted Smile does a pretty good job keeping the booze out of the flavor, despite the strength. It is good and malty, but has a subtle hoppiness (Saaz hops). I would certainly recommend it for something that is medium bodied, but easy drinking. 

One thing I will say is that these are better unaged. The fresher this bottle, the better the Tilted Smile.
