COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Behold the subtle power of a beer whose simplicity of elements belies its complex spirit. Pilsener malt, noble Hallertau hops, lager yeast, and deep well water. By scaling up these simple ingredients we’ve turned the German pilsener "imperial" and made one of the world’s most refreshing styles of beer bigger, rounder and even more enjoyable.

Theydon_Bois (6994) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle at Fastelavn Smagning 2014 @ J&C’s beer palace, Jutland Saturday Session 1 - 01/03/14. Pale golden with moderate off white spotting. Nose is pale malts, cereals, corn, pretty basic. Taste comprises caramel, pale malt, grassy pangs, lightly toasted bread, cereals. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok stuff, not ’hopped up’ which is what I normally find in US pils, not saying that’s a bad thing but this is truer to style.

yngwie (12682) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle, 75cl corked. A small, dense, white head on top of a clear, golden body. The aroma is sweetish and faintly grainy, with some alcohol and a hoppy fruityness. The flavor is on the sweet side, with fruityness and some pale malts. Hints of spent grains. Not as much bitterness as it needs in my opinion. Full to medium body, with a soft carbonation level. Lasting grassy and piney finish. Sort of interesting, but nothing wonderful going on. 140301

teddybeer (2097) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 7, 2014
From my backlog. Golden colour with a frothy white head with good duration and nice lacework. Aroma is malty with fruity notes and some citrus hints. Flavor is slightly sweet at the beginning, good maltiness, fruity and floral traces are also present. The final is slightly bittery with some creamy notes.

Bottle shared at the Foothills Sexual Chocolate pre-release party. Way too malty and sweet for a pils. Odd cereal presence too.

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. My first from this brewery and it made a big impression.Golden and clear with a small head. Unusual, creamy and slightly fruity taste. I still struggle with the idea of an imperial pils but if there are any more like this then bring them on. Excellent.
