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.

Very nice texture and sweet flavors. Sweet and boozy with Not much bitterness, which puts it a little close to the malt liquor zone. Thoroughly enjoyable.

750 ml corked bottle pour split. A little past the best by date, but I adopted it from the store shelf this way and treated it equally. Pours a dense yellow orange color with a grainy aroma with light hops. Refreshing, unique pilsner with a dry finish. Another solid effort out of the smokestack series. Good stuff.

ClubGonzo (4238) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Nose is grains, corn, syrup and hints of grains and marzipan. Taste is alcohol, marzipan, maize and hints of grains and mild grass. Medium to light body and medium carbonation. Not bad for the style, but then again the style isn’t very nice to begin with.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours yellow with a white head. Taste sweet, grassy, fruit. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vignale (2206) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2014
Flaska från SB. Några månader efter BBD. Fina mjuka men rejäla pilsnerdofter och smaker. Lite smör, färskt bröd, örter, blomsteräng. Även smakbilden är fint nyanserad men med viss kraft. Måttlig beska, fin krispig avslutning. Alkoholen väl dold. Harmonisk och väl balanserad. Ett litet mästerverk.

Lilja (1783) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, malt, jäst, bröd, citrus, hö och gräs, toner av karamell och metall. Lagom sötma, bra beska.

Beachmaster (174) - 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 (1831) - 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.

Bottle from z and z. Pours a transparent golden with a thin layer of cream colored head. Aroma of malts. Taste of crisp malts and such.
