COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

MaBeer1972 (1284) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 26, 2013
On tap at Battleship. A deep golden brew. Complex malty / hoppy flavors, with some classic pilsener breadiness. Smooth and drinkable. Quite nice.

Beachmaster (110) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bomber into a pilsner glass. Pours a clear yellow, with a moderate white head that quickly dissipates. No appreciable lacing. Nose is light malt. Taste is light malt and a touch of caramel. Finish is medium length with a light mouth feel and clean taste. Sweeter than most pilsners, which is to be expected from an Imperial. Very good, well crafted beer. Refreshing.

Westmeister (1732) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
This is one style that I don’t understand and haven’t had good luck with. So, that being said no idea why I ordered this one on draft. Boulevard on the label likely had something to do with it. That being said probably one of the best examples I’ve had. Grassy, grains, alcohol, fruity. Lots of booze for only 7.7%. Some hops.

MrHult (218) - SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2014
Flaska från @thaalcoholic, tack. Grumlig gul vätska med vitt skum. Doftar svagt av söt malt. Riktigt god fyllig pilsner utan brödighet eller metall. God!

Bottled:
Eye: Hazy, golden with a large head.
Nose: Citrus, butter, bread, sweet.
Mouth: Thick, dry.
Tongue: Leafy hops, citrus, alcohol.
