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, 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.

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.

bartlebier (3250) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2016
33cl bottiglietta bb06/2017, downed post-Emma tasting, ben tenebrata. - Bref: spectactularly on-point IIPL (Imperial India Pale Lager, scusatemi la parola) dry yet vibrant with cleanly dialed in and edgy Saaz and deep-furrowing US alpha acid exotics. - Cloudy yellowish pour, thin Kellerbier. Lemongrass stalk, lime and a minor whiff of abv through the clean bottom-fermentation. Really shines n taste: thin and cripsy as a mineral TUC cracker in malt base, slathered with pore-opening edgy aroma hops bringing all kinds of lively herbal, hedgerow and deep citrus (actual grapefruit pith) rind hops to the unsuspecting synapses, lingering Nd probing deeply for luscious pleasure. Thick with hop oils on a thin malt base = high art meets precision engineering. An elegant case for transatlantic collaborations if there ever was one. Glad to down this bottle tutto da solo.

danielst (305) - AUSTRIA - MAY 30, 2016
33cl bottle: Orange blonde color. Sweet grainy aroma. Floral and perfumey flavor with plenty of sweetness and bready malt and cereal complexity. Rich and creamy mouthfeel, still finishes dry. Interesting and tasty beer, if you like bockbier check it out.

fenouil (18) - courbevoie, FRANCE - MAY 19, 2016
Très originale bière italienne qui surprend au nez par la complexité de ses arômes. Un nez puissant d’agrumes, pamplemousse, citron, mais aussi une dominante d’épices, d’herbes séchés. Vraiment original ! La bouche est ample avec une magnifique amertume qui invite à la dégustation. La finale suit dans le même style : agrumes et herbes séchés. Très surprenante : une belle personnalité.

davidezdonz (253) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - MAY 15, 2016
A 330ml bottle with a best before date of October 2016 and poured into a Mikkeller pint glass. It poured a hazy golden orange colour with a two finger slightly off white head that had great retention and left thick sticky lacing. Aromas of citrus lemon and orange, some pineapple and a hint of grass and herbs. Tastes of sweet honey, lemon and orange with a hint of grapefruit and herbal bitterness. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Overall this was a great and refreshing Pilsner. Aromas were a bit weak but it looks and tastes good.

luiggiggi (4) - ITALY - MAY 14, 2016 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2016 Ottima pilsener, si presenta con un bel colore giallo pallido, una schiuma compatta che lascia un buon lacing ed un profumo erbaceo penetrante. In bocca apre il luppolo, seguito da note fruttate e chiude sempre l?erbaceo che lascia un buon finale. Corpo leggero, bassa carbonazione. Provata alla spina presso birreria Gino

Lele (368) - Padova, ITALY - MAY 12, 2016
Birra veramente molto buona e ben fatta. Colore giallo un po’ torbido, con bella schiuma. Al naso sentori un po’ caramellati, ma soprattutto fruttati e un po’ erbacei. In bocca è sensuale. Fruttata, soprattutto melone, ma anche speziata e un po’ di caramello, con un finale sull’erbaceo, tendente all’amaro ma assolutamente non troppo. Ottimo lavoro!
