COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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, č 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. Piů alcolica e corposa rispetto alle classiche Pils, sorprende per la sua intensitŕ rivelandosi esplosiva ma equilibrata. Una bionda “tosta” di cui vi innamorerete, proprio come la protagonista del romanzo di WillaCather da cui prende il nome.

ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, - 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.

[backlog] 10-07-16 / bottle at Bierbörse Mainz. Damn good pilsner. Fruity, well carbonated. Dont feel the high ABV. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 4.25/5

16erBlech (404) - Burgenland, AUSTRIA - AUG 20, 2016
0,33l bottle from Merkur. My 400. rating. The bottle is an eyecatcher. The beer is a creamy, smooth, tasty, bittersweet delicacy. The high ABV is not noticeable. Perfectly balanced beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nosajhongkong (32) - North Point, HONG KONG - JUL 29, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2016 Bottle at the Globe Hong Kong. Appearance: Pours a cloudy yellow colour with medium to thick frothy white head that lasts quite long. Also leaves fair bit of lacing. Aroma: Rich, complex and hoppy aromas of grapefruit, mango and citrus, with some lime, lemongrass, piney and wheat notes. Taste: Light citrus sweetness and herbal bitterness with touch of piney and tangerine flavour. Some subtle malt flavour. Palate: Medium body with rich creamy texture. Light bitter citrus and herbal aftertaste with light carbonation. Overall: A richer, hoppier and more complex imperial pilsner, yet still retains the refreshens and easy-going character of a pilsner. The larger yeast gives a clean depth to the malt and yeast, allowing the floral hops to play the big role. And the bottle goes well with the beer too.

mariuspoenari (1426) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2016
33cl bottle. Pale yellow with a fine-grained white head with good retention and a bit of floating white sedimentation. Smells like citrus, passion fruit, honey, elderflowers, grapefruit and floral hops. The taste follows the same notes, bitter-sweet and well balanced. Medium to light body, medium carbonation and a spicy bitter-sweet aftertaste.
