COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A. Le Coq & Co was established in 1807 in London. Production was transferred from London to Estonia (Tartu) at the beginning of the 20th century and it is still produced there today.

In 1912. A. Le Coq was chosen as the official supplier of the Russian emperor’s court, and Imperial Extra Double Stout, which was brewed in Tartu, became available throughout the empire.

We have launched A. Le Coq Imperial again to show respect for our old traditions. The Imperial range is for beer lovers with exquisite taste.

Imperial Ale is a top-fermented beer with a rich flavour bouquet. There is a perfect balance between the delicious bitter taste of hops and the sweetness of malt. The copper colour that characterises the best ales adds a respectability referring to its imperial past.

Clear amber appearance, medium head. Sweet malty aroma with hints of caramel. Sweet with some bitterness, decently rounded, but not outstanding. Average English Pale Ale style beer.

rosenbergh (7411) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2014
400 ml bottle. BB 10/09/15. Hospoda Koruna, Kajaani, Finland. Clear golden colour with a small frothy white head. Lagery aroma... Is this ale? The flavour is like sweet lager. This is not an ale... Well maybe it is as they say it is. Very lagery ale. And bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ogivlado (5900) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 22, 2014
Bottled 400ml. -from Interspar Brežice. Golden coloured, small white head, buttery caramel nose. Sweetish malty, light fruity and yeasty with dusty and slight bitter finish. Just like Yves from Visibaba said: diluted Leffe Blond.

Kita (1197) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle, 0.40l. Clear amber color with thin frothy off-white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of cereals, caramel, raisins, wine marc and grassy hops. Taste starts with moderate sweet grainy and caramelly malt, following is slightly honeyish with fruity and grassy acidity, mild spicy mouthfeel and light bitter finish. Light to medium body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Pretty average brew, still can’t cope with majority of good ales...

Ogi’s, from a Spar in Brežice, Slovenia, thanks! 0.4l, because 0.5l wouldn’t be as premium. Fuck... after the Imperial Märzen, I was a little afraid to try this. Though, obviously irrationally, I mean, having 2 glasses of coloured water in a row wouldn’t technically poison me, right? And it looks similar in the glass to boost - a clear golden-amber body, nice enough, with a small head. Aroma... well, this is hardly English, now is it? Dust, cloves, sweetish light malts, vague apple. Like some random macro trying to do a Belgi... oh wait, that’s exactly what had happened. Taste? It tastes EXACTLY like the aroma + vague caramel, so, basically, exactly like a diluted Leffe Blond. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, heck, it’s 20 times more interesting than the Imperial Märzen (so’s mineral water, but bear with me). This is OK enough - if a local macro did it and it was available readily everywhere @ a passable price, I’d have it over the regular lagers.... So there you go. You can do much worse than this, you can do much better than this... oh fuck... I already said that for a beer today.

No much aroma, no after taste, easy to drink. Golden color, no head. Very light caramel taste. Light body, flat. A bit disappointing, was expecting more.
