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.

Draught at the Gingerman at the Blue Mountain Event NYC sept 2012. Clear pale golden beer with a small offwhite head. Hoppy aroma. Hoppy, a bit sweet and fruity flavour.

Really not bad for a guy who doesn’t really enjoy pilsners, unless its to get college drunk. Goes down smooth and you really don’t notice the higher alcohol content. Good for a try.

Braudog (5875) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle, caged and corked. Drowning my football sorrows. I love the artwork on the bottle. Pours like an imperial pilsner should, I suppose ... deep golden, slightly hazy, with a giant, firm head. The nose is sweet and slightly lemony-citric. This drinks exceptionally smooth, easy to gulp, little to hint at some 7.6% ABV. Full-bodied for sure. This is some really good stuff ...

Very nice on tap, a bit course with full mouth, nice head over light copper color, had a lot of delicate fruits with plenty of malt as well.

Sampled and then thrown (unintentionally) thrown on the floor. I cant believe this beer is rated so high. Pots a clear yellow golden body with thick white head. Aroma is reminiscient of lionshead. Mouthfeel is thin and grainy with notes of a cheap pale, grainy lager. Bland. Eh.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2012
On tap at RFD. Soft orange pour with a white head. Lots of lacing in the glass. Aroma is buttery, hoppy, a bit grassy and a bit sharp. Flavor has some mild hop bitterness with a bit of that buttery kick again. Good beer but needs a but more hop assertiveness to balance out the malt bill.

rlgk (11349) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2012
Draught at Ginger Man, NYC. Golden beer with an offwhite head. Malty bready aroma, spicy notes, hoppy and floral with some citrus. Malty bready sweetish flavor, alcohol well hidden, fruity from plums and grapes, some hoppy floral notes. Bready finish with some citrus.

TheBeerGod (5315) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle - 750mL corked and caged.Hazed gold with a tall, dense white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with flora and grassy hops, fruit notes and soft funky yeast. Doesn’t really smell like a pilsener or an imperial pilsener. Kind of smells like a Belgian beer or at least uses a funky Belgian yeast. Taste is sweet malt, toasted grains, soft honey, dusty yeast notes, grassy hops, light floral notes and fruit notes. Body is medium with a strong, dense carbonation. Finishes with more sweet malt notes, fresh fruit, floral hops, grassy notes, light biscuit malt and dusty yeast. I’ll rate the beer as it is irrespective of style.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a small white head. Sweet malt aroma with a hint of grass. Sweet malt and light grass flavor with a strange butter-like undertone.

mansquito (3513) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria tap ($8): Pours some sort of orange color with a white head. Aroma is mostly malty, with some hoppiness in there. Not much crispness up in here; however, this is very smooth and the alcohol does not eliminate all of the pilsener qualities. Alcohol is well-covered in any case. This is an OK, but somewhat forgettable imperial pils.
