Noble Prize Imperial Pilsner
I hadn't seen Boulevard's Noble Prize Imperial Pilsner locally in Miami... except in a mixed 8 pack featuring pairs of four different Smokestack Series beers. So I grabbed that, not just for the new pair but because the other three Smokestack options in the pack are great! 7.5% alcohol. 32 IBU. Best By Smudge, 2018 so I'm good since I drank last month.
Sweet grain, apple aroma. Similar flavors, bready to start. Sweet apples and honey, a nice fruity touch. Flavors are enhanced by a noticeable alcohol kick. Prickly carbonation and a good hoppy bitter balance lead into a dry finish. I liked it!
