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.

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.

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.

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.

Hmm, it looks very pretty with murky gold pour and a big white head that slowly fades into a ton of lacing. The aroma is decent with a nice hop and malt blend. The taste unfortunately doesn’t balance as well. This is certainly one of the strangest pilsners I’ve ever tried. It leaves a very odd and unpleasant aftertaste. I suppose it’s the hops? Easily some of the worst hops I’ve ever had if so though. It’s a shame because the beer is light and creamy up front but the finish cannot be overlooked!
