3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
