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, č 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. Piů alcolica e corposa rispetto alle classiche Pils, sorprende per la sua intensitŕ rivelandosi esplosiva ma equilibrata. Una bionda “tosta” di cui vi innamorerete, proprio come la protagonista del romanzo di WillaCather da cui prende il nome.

ComradeK (1092) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts well and leaves reasonable lacing. Herbal, spice and citrus hops dominate the aroma, with some faint caramel malt in the background. Powerful grapefruit and herbal hops up front lead into a fairly light body of caramel and white bread malt. Spicy hops come through in the finish, and linger into the aftertaste. This is quite a good beer, but like most imperial pilseners it really needs a bit more body to carry its hops flavours.

MatteoD. (137) - ITALY - MAY 19, 2013
Alla spina al Red Bear pub di Marghera. Bella schiuma fine aderente ma non persistente, aroma luppolato eccezzionale, erbaceo, note citriche, aghi di pino, al palato corpo medio con buona carbonazione, si avverte subito la dolcezza del malto seguita da un amaro luppolato con note citriche, erbacee, il luppolo regna sovrano in questa imperial Pils , il finale e’ secco e amaro, perfetto! Se la trovassi ancora l’assaggerei sicuramente ancora. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

shoulderbroken (3452) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 11, 2013
Tap at Gar Eden. Amber coloured, clear, small off-white head. Aroma is light citrus bitterness, lots of malt, bit of booze. Taste is ok, not so exciting, light bitterness, caramel malty, feels boozier than it is. Nice enough, not so exciting. Bit sweeter with touch of citrus towards end.

Temptation (257) - - MAY 8, 2013
Pale, hazy cloudy amber color crowned by a very white, fluffy and generous head. Hoppy, sweet aroma to fruits with a malty base of biscuit and caramel. Hoppy taste, well balanced, with some fruity notes (peach, lychee). Medium bodied, creamy texture and declining development, nice finish. Liked it a lot.

Beerdrinker79 (1968) - Idaho, USA - MAY 3, 2013
12.7 oz. bottle- Pours hazy golden with a huge pillowy white head that wants to stick around. Aroma is floral, mellow yet assertive hops, somewhat spicy. The taste is light and hoppy, floral, citrusy, not overly alcoholic which the style can be sometimes. Very nice, would love to compare this and the American version side by side.

umich03jm (3307) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2013
375 ml bottle. Date on it says 05 2014, must be a best by date. Pours a clear golden orange color with a huge fluffy head that fades slowly, leaves a little lacing too. Aroma is musty hops. Citrus fruit, strawberries, grass, and a light champagne yeast scent. Taste is impressive. Intense musty hops mixed with citrus and red fruit. Moderate sweetness balances nicely with the moderate bitterness. Medium body. High fluffy carbonation provides a slightly foamy mouthfeel but it bubbles away quickly like champagne. Overall, very enjoyable and somewhat unique.

Yorker (1934) - Herning, DENMARK - APR 27, 2013
75 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy golden with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is crisp, citrusy hops as well as some caramel malt. Flavour is much like the aroma with a slightly bitter finish.

larsga (7117) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 26, 2013
Big offwhite creamy lasting head. Hazy deep yellow body. Powerful resiny citric aroma with strawy malty notes. Dry-sweet resiny orangey taste with strawy toffee notes. Mid-to-full body. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry resiny malty toffee aftertaste with marzipan, candy, and citrus notes. Really nice, and highly drinkable. (0.75l bottle, wine monopoly, web order.)
