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.

Pours a clear blonde with a good head and lace. The aroma is saaz hops some hay and some nice grassiness. The flavor is very nicely clean with a great hoppy bitterness. There are lots of grassy and fruity hops. This is pretty gosh darned straight forward but itís also remarkably well made.

hey marge! surfs up!! ..drank March 13th 2010 @ 6:30pm .. . Pours a medium gold yellow, high spritz .. . good sturdy white fluffy egg white beaten head .. . named him Terrance, then killed him and hollowed him out and made an ashtray .. medium to light bitterness, very simple but has an underlining quality .. . is this scotch tape? oh you drunk .. . just a touch of saaz, some light light honey, some water cracker .. . i never picked up an illegal alien at home depot to take home and choke me while i touched myself.. . A very nice brew that would sell very well in spring/summer if it was half the price, and it needs more Orval-like qualities ..sheís such a butthole.

pale gold pour with a lasting thick foamy white head. aroma is lemony fruit, earthy yeasty presence, grassy hop and grainy malt. Flavour is quite dry, lemony grassy bitterness. Some mineral earthiness to the finish. Interesting

Great pils. Best Iíve had in a long time. Nice also to have a good Imp Pilsner that isnít so heavy in bitterness and over hopped. Very pleasant. Big but not too heavy. Enjoyed with Robb while playing Tiger Woods Wii.

750mL bottle, batch 2-2009, best by 9/10. Thanks to Andrew (BMan1113VR) for the bottles. Slightly hazy straw with a big three finger white head, pretty good retention. Dusty saltines with some old wet pasta make up the malt while there is some hay and some light herbal hop notes on the other end. Just picking up on a little alcohol thus far. Just after agitation I get a little bit of some floral and sulfur. Flavor is again more malt forward with the saltines and pasta, and the hops are mainly of the hay variety, and more restrained than I had wanted. Dry finish with some alcohol spice noted. Bitterness peaked only around a 3 or so. Moderate carbonation with a medium full body. Pretty good, though not as good as I wanted it to be.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2010
Pours a beautiful stained-glass cheddar yellow with a nice, frothy head of white and an aroma of semi-sweet cereal and slightly buttery grapefruit hops with just a hint of rose and black pepper. Flavor is an onslaught of pilsner goodness, with fluffy bits of sweet corn, rose, butter, and a finish of slight popcorn with salty sugar. Deep and penetrating on the tongue. Wow, this is an awesome pilsner.
