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.

r464 (1946) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Golden amber in color with a foamy whitish head. Balanced, smooth, malty at first. Light hops and spice, full and well rounded. Could use a bit more crispness in the finish, but overall quite good.

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.

Beergeek23322 (2492) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2013
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.

TheBeerGod (5347) - 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.

Bov (9810) - 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

alobar (2882) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours a cloudy straw yellow color with a white soapy head. Aroma of hay, cereal, and some fruity sweetness. Grain flavor with tropical fruit sweetness. Very nice beer.

mansquito (3578) - 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.

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.

MadRobin (2070) - 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
