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.

umich03jm (3493) - 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.

larsga (7293) - 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.)

Ale23ilbirraio (12) - - APR 14, 2013
Imperial Pils fatta in collaborazione con il DogfishHead di Sam Calagione. La parte floreale e di luppoli ne esalta il corpo un pò scarso o comunque più scarso del odore. Bevuta in bottiglia.

spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2013
750 ml bottle, pours hazy orange with a large foamy head. Plenty of bready & caramel malts and a big grape & seville orange citrus hop profile, with some lemon zest thrown in. The aroma is great. Low carbonation for a pilsner, but this is more than a normal pilsner. Crisp, hoppy as hell, but still with a good balance. Very nice indeed.
