3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
.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.

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika.Golden hazy color, ok foam. Aromas; starts of with light hops, then fruity and floral aromas- in the end nice yeast influence; medium intensity. Medium body & complexity. Good bitterness and well balanced. Very enjoyable- I expect its the best Imperial Pils Ive tasted so far

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. The colour is slightly cloudy dark straw and with a medium light beige head. Aroma of pale malt, hay, sweet corn, mown grass and some citrus. Has a nice sweetnes as well. More grassy hops in the flavour and with hay and some sweet corn. A little dry ending. Has a slick and rich mouth feel, and a light to medium bitterness. A well-balanced pilsner with a nice sweetness and hoppy touch.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The appearance has a somewhat clear golden yellow colored body with a nice two fingered white foamy head that dies within about thirty seconds. What lacing there is tries to cling but slides for the most part, but there really isn’t much lacing at all to be honest. I do see some carbonation rising at a decent pace
The smell has a nice combination of peppery spices playing with a slight citrus/lemony of sorts with some white grapes with a floral aspect show up as it warms.
The taste is slightly bitter to begin with and as it starts to warm a nice grassy maltiness comes out; floral yet grassy aftertaste with a quick dry finish.
The palate sits light on the body with a good carbonation for an American Double Pilsener leaving enough harshness but not overly doing it, decent sessionability.
Overall, this is a nice American Double Pilsener that I would have again and would definitely put it up with its respected food. Personally, I think I could do this with a nice big juicy steak right off the grill.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a very tall, pillowy white head that creates a decent lacing on the glass. Aroma has a strong pils malt, lots of saaz hops, mild lemony acid nose. Flavor has a strong grain flavor up front with a noble hop kick in the middle and finish. Body is light, crisp and has loads of carbonation. Overall a good brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flaske fra polets nettbutikk, hjemme: etter en nittimers økt i konserthuset var dette akkurat hva dr. Dahle forordnet, rett fra kjøleskapet. Det er noe rituelt å trekke opp korken på en slik flaske, og flott skum kombinert med en tilbakelent men innsmigrende humleduft var nok til at jeg følte saligheten. Jeg synker ned i godstolen og lar de leskende dråper fylle ganen og nytelsen brer seg. Livet er mye bedre enn det avholdsfolk vil ha det til.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium offwhite slightly coarse head doesn’t last. Clear yellow
body with carbonation. Light grainy fruity aroma, very faint.
Dry-sweet fruity grainy taste with honey notes. Mid-bodied.
Mild, slightly fizzy mouthfeel, with some heat at the end.
Dryish spicy pear aftertaste with mealy wooden notes. Nice,
drinkable, and sort of bland. In no way does the flavour justify
all that alcohol. A bit heavy; can’t really drink the whole
thing without food and water.(0.75l bottle, from wine monopoly,
