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.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
