wedgie9 (1837) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Tasted on 1/26/13 from a capped 375mL bottle purchased at Grand Cru. Pours murky dark orange with a massive, rocky off-white head that slowly recedes to very thick, rocky lace. The nose is some pale cereal malt with with plenty of tropical fruit and dank green hops. The flavor features fuller malt than the nose would have suggested, with some caramel and toffee, and the hops coming through with tons of tropical fruit and some nice green bitterness on the back of the palate. The body is medium with average, stinging carbonation, and a long tropical fruit and bitter hops finish. This drinks more like an IPA/IIPA than a lager.

Pretty good beer although I don't see much connection to being a Pilsner or even an imperial Pilsner. Poured with a nice sized cream colored head some lace and a Hazey to cloudy amber color. Aroma is hop Malt yeast fruit bread dough. Flavor is Like aroma and again I don't see much connection to a Pilsner but it's still good hoppy malty beer. Body is heavier, more round than traditional Pilsner I think even an imperial Pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: (12.7oz): Hazy golden. As you would expect, this is very much like the Dogfish Head My Antonia (a collaboration). Not a "light" pilsner, very good and the bottling is nice. More expensive than the DFH though.

elbernays (416) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle at home. Recommended by Guy in the Blackrock cellar. Pours clearish amber with lasting foam white head. Looks great. Aroma is peach, orange, yeast, bread, orange rind, a chemical background. Light malt base- toast, hay, woodchip which gives way to a strong pithy bitterness which dries the mouth and is long lasting. A good bit of carbonation which you may expect with style. Plenty going on here and a nice pils.

colore dorato intenso e luppolo in ogni dove!una bestia difficile da domare al palato. Sublime. Se piace il luppolo questo è un vero trionfo. C’e chi dice che Sam abbia lanciato alla ceca luppoli nel mosto, ma a quanto pare ha fatto centro in ogni lancio. Complimenti!

Poured a hazy golden with a lively head with great lacing. Moderately hoppy in the mouth, but not annoying.

Imperial pilsners are always strange animals. There isn’t much that’s basic about this lager. Medium bodied, notes of honey, pine, orange, and tropical fruit. Bready backbone. Tried at Churchkey in 2014.
