How can a style as elegant and refined as pilsner be "amped up" to imperial status? The answer, as Spinal Tap guitarist Nigel Tufnel might say, is simple: you go to eleven. With its classic recipe and impeccable craftsmanship, Reverb Imperial Pilsner echoes our Collaboration No. 1 Imperial Pilsner, produced in 2009 with esteemed Belgian brewmaster Jean-Marie Rock. Like its predecessor, this summer seasonal is a study in delicately balanced contrasts. Up front, Pilsner malt makes a clear yet restrained statement, answered by the steady, harmonious hum of Saaz hops, traces of which linger in the dry, crisp finish. Rock on.

@ Whitey’s Liquor / Lawrenceburg IN --- Clear golden amber with a rocky white head that drops to a solid head cover, streamers of lace. Taste is sweet malt with floral overtones that turns more bitter as it moves through the palate to a cleansing finish. Pilsner, yes, much more assertive, also yes. A great choice for a Spring afternoon with light snacks.

.75 bottle. Golden yellow. While the one-three imperial pilsners I’ve had so far have always been very heavy, slightly too sweet or overhopped (much like hoppy doublebocks really), this one greets you with a really nice pilsnery clean malty nose, and those lovely soothing, subtle tingling fine hops. Body is full, smooth, without being sticky. I’m pleasantly surprised. Definitely the best ’imperial pils’ I’ve had, and a really nice beer overall.
