3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

1/3 pint at BeeRoma 2015 (short rating, overall impressions only). Lovely aroma, fresh and hoppy. Slightly nutty in the background with some yeast esters influence and a tiny alchool presence. Zingy and light, it drinks way lighter than the actual ABV. Solid.

@Wijnhandel Wielinga, 058. Schenkt bleek helder geel/gouden met schuimige witte kraag. Aroma is hoppig, citrus, fris en fruitig. Smaken zijn direct al bij de eerste slok wat vol/zacht/romig, tevens redelijk zoet, matig bitter, sterk, redelijk fruitig van sinaasappel en citrus, pilsmouten, exotisch, matige gekruid, hier zit iets te weinig koolzuur in daardoor proeft hij denk ik wat voller. medium body, iets qua IPA-achtige blond bier.. verder prima

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Mel’s 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 I’ve had.

Davvero i miei complimenti...ho bevuto molte imperial pils alcune anche di casa mikkeller...ma questa my Antonia come birra le supera tutte...birra straordinariamente equilibrata per il genere a cui appartiene...non manca però di carattere i sapori dei malti si sentono tutti bella schiumosa alcool percepibile ma mai fastidioso bilanciato benissimo dall’Amaro...mi ha molto colpito come birra
