COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Pilser" realizzata con Sam Calagione del birrificio Dogfish Head (USA). Pils, Carapils, Simcoe, Warior, Saaz <nt>
Una delle poche incursioni nel mondo della bassa fermentazione made in Borgorose, è il frutto della collaborazione tra Leonardo e Sam Calagione di Dogfishead. Ognuno dei due birrai ha messo del proprio in questa birra, scegliendo a turno il tipo di luppolo da aggiungere pugno a pugno in un dry hopping lungo 60 minuti, tra Simcoe, Warrior e Saaz. Più alcolica e corposa rispetto alle classiche Pils, sorprende per la sua intensità rivelandosi esplosiva ma equilibrata. Una bionda “tosta” di cui vi innamorerete, proprio come la protagonista del romanzo di WillaCather da cui prende il nome.

Bottle from Plonk. Slightly hazy, glowing golden, frothy white head, grassy, citrusy hops, quite sweet, sugary malt, some doughy yeast evident, full body, strong lingering bitterness. Love this beer.

McNeillR (2227) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 20, 2013
Stale hazel yellow, quickly dissipating tight bubbled white head. Well grated steely mango nose, undercurrent of booze. Real up front wedge of bitterness, decent taught carbonation and avalanche of over subscribed malt. Proper Super Tennants tang here, which likely because I’ve supped too many a tin, leaves me disappointed here. Tinny, lemon rind finish and oily trickle of malty bitter linger.

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours golden amber with a short, fluffy white head. Upfront hoppy grapefruit aroma, tropical fruits and a touch of zest. Smells and tastes like an IPA. Plenty of fruity hop flavours, bit of caramel malt and a pretty clean mouthfeel. Just an insanely hoppy lager.

jaghana (5501) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle 33cl from Mondial de la bière. A clear copper beer with medium head. Nose is intense on citrus and grapefruit hops. Aroma is very resin like with lot of grapefruit and citrus, quite bitter too, relative sugar, ok for a strong lager.

Clear gold pour with a lasting fluffy white head. A ton of visual carbonation. Sweet honey, malt aroma with some citrus and spicy hops. Taste is sweet malt, orange, herbal, and spicy hops. Pretty full body. Nice beer overall.

Bottle from Choice Beverages, McKinney. Pours a straw yellow with a thin white head. The aromas are hay, grass, lemon zest. The mouthfeel is dry and slightly watery with a medium body and good carbonation. Cheers!

vanvenlo (1776) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2013
Lovely floral perfume herbal aroma. Cloudy amber colour, white head and suds lacing. Spirit warming fruit herbal hop flavour. Bitter herbal hop spirit finish and spirit fruit floral hop aftertaste.

Lupulucid (189) - - SEP 8, 2013
This is an incredibly hoppy Imperial Pils. There is some great hop flavor hidden under bitterness that is out of balance. The twang that might be expected from the yeast is not conspicuous but rather integrated. The mouthfeel is quite chalky. There is a good bit of complexity lurking and I think this beer would be phenomenal if bitterness was in proportion to hop flavor. Drinking very fresh would help realize the most potential.

DrStrangelove (75) - ITALY - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle. Hazy light golden with a small, dense and frothy, mostly diminishing white head. Aroma is moderate malty, tropical fruits, citrus, grapefruit. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter, fruity, caramel malt, salty. Finish in moderate bitter with a long lasting aftertaste.
