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.

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.

Bov (10913) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 18, 2013
from Erzbierschof - clear bright golden beer with a long lasting white foam; light notes of cork, chewy fruityness (apples, pears and hints of banana); full-bodied and with some sweetness, subtle carbonation and decent bitterness; light notes of alcohol in the finish; residual sugars and more fruity hops

ben4321 (5051) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Location: Draft at Amity Hall, 9/27/13

Aroma: The nose has some earthy hops, grass, spice, grains, some citrus, and floral notes
Appearance: It pours a hazy golden color with a decent sized head and medium lace
Flavor: The taste is well-balanced, malty, grassy, earthy, and grainy, with some fruity notes
Palate: The body is medium, it has a crisp feel, average carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this one was really quite enjoyable. I’ve been pretty impressed with Blue Mountain lately. Between the likes of Hardywood, Blue Mountain, Devil’s Backbone, and the classic Legend (among others), my home state is turning into quite the beer state. Virginia represent!

7/28/2012. From bottle. Hops, malt, apples, grain and yeast aromas. Golden yellow with a white head. Less alcohol burn than most. Pretty good.

MadRobin (2499) - Silver Spring, USA - SEP 2, 2013
On tap at Whole Foods in Market Square in Fairfax, VA. Clear, golden straw-yellow with a fine off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of mild grain and little else. Taste of sweet grainy malt, alcohol, grass, pepper, spicy earthy hops and lemon. Medium body and medium/high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RABinCO (1421) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2013
On draft a few times at different places. Pours gold, slight white head. Overall too sweet and boozy for such a delicate style. Cereal, sugar, light floral hoppiness.

superspak (3745) - Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2013
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before June 2014 on the cork. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 2-3 finger dense white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big lemon, pear, apple, pepper, floral, bread, honey, cracker, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with great balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, pepper, floral, bread, cracker, honey, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, pepper, floral, bread, honey, cracker, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and good complexity of earthy hops, malt, and fruity ester flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly slick, smooth, and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Imperial pils! All around nice balance of hop, malt, and fruity ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

bartlebier (2815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2013
(US backlog 2012) 8x draught sample flight at VA brewpub 14/ix/12. Actually enjoyable US-gargantuan, imperial take on modest old-world Pilsner, like a well-hopped (Saaz) and actually drinkable Faxe. Heavy though - when in the US and in need of hops and +7% ABV, this is a hard bargain against any decent IPA.

dmac (4956) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2013
750ml bottle from Spirits Red Bank. Poured s chunky orange body with a smaller foamy off white head. Aroma was big and boozy with wet dough, grapes, wet nut shells, old wet grains. Full bodied with a boozy finish and lots of chewiness and heat along with strong carbonation. Flavor isnt much different than aroma, booze, wort, grains, and grapes. Not a good beer and definitely not good for the price.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2013
750ml from Sam’s, Durham. Cases of this stuff sitting around for $4 a bottle, so I’ve grabbed a couple. Pretty solid stuff overall. Ripe and raucous pale gold pour, with a bracing nose of noble hops, pale malts, and a bit of spicy yeast. It’s that latter element that comes across strongly as you drink the beer, melding nicely with the abundant and quite dry hops. Not a world beater by any means, but it’s pretty much how I like this style done, so they get points for that.
