3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Melís Craft Beers, Vienna.
Deep golden, hazy body, with a big, creamy, stable, lacing, white head.
Aroma of ripe fruits, grass, peach, some berries, bread, sweet malts.
Lovely taste of ripe fruits, peach, lots of citrus, grass, candy, some bread.
Full, oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes bitter, quite dry, grassy, zesty, fruity.
Tasty. Pretty unique for this style, loads of lovely hops, with an interesting ripe fruit character. The Pils part of the beer just dominates in the finish. Overall one of the best Imperial Pilsners Iíve had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden colour with a medium frothy white head and good lacings. Aromas of tropical fruit like pineapple and mango dominate, notes of caramel, ripe peach and some spruce develop. Light livelyness fades quickly into a slick texture and a medium-full body. Fruity malt centered sweetness fades quickly into a pronounced tropical fruit induced hop bitterness. Overall well balanced but yet showing some light astringent hit. Lasting finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is straight up catpiss on newly cut grass, Iím not kidding you, but thatís not always a bad thing. Thatís just the hops over-dominating. Also a variety of sweet citrus, oranges, tangerines and a slightly herbal touch. The mouthfeel is a bit soft and thereís not a lot of carbonation - once again I think about oranges and lemon peels, but thereís a sweetness in here, almost like honey breaking through. Very clean malts. There is a slight spicy tone breaking through in the end? This beer is just like taking a bicycle ride in the evening down to an Italian restaurant in late August when all the fruit orchards are beginning to fade. The air is kind of "thick" from overripe fruits and a supressing, almost moisty heat and there is a thunderstorm around the corner.
