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.

mansquito (5208) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Pizzeria Paradiso, Dupont tap ($8): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is of a combination of hops: small amount of citrus, some pine, and resin. Taste is similar to an IPA and would almost be hard-pressed to identify this as a lager at the first go. Nice finish with a lingering aftertaste. I would be interested to try the DFH version again, because I had only sampled it when I had it.

On draft at Pizzeria Paradiso Washington DC. Pours a cloudy gold with a thin off white head. Feint citrus nose. Flavors of white toast with some grapefruit and pine. A great breakfast beer?

Sigmund (6646) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2013
750 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. Hazy golden colour, large white head. Strong sweetish aroma of American hops and carapilsener malts, notes of citrus fruit / orange marmalade. Soft mouthfeel. Sweet flavour with distinct and fruity American hops throughout. A tasty and enjoyable beer, the alcohol is not well hidden though. Medium bitter finish. Tastes more or less like an American IPA, not much "pilsener" about this one.

ComradeK (1100) - 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 (3664) - 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 (2013) - 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.
