3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hoppiness isn’t overpowering in taste, the alcohol gives it a slightly effervescent taste. Overall, a pretty good strong lager.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice Malty and Hop aroma reminiscent of bohemian pilsner . Nice Malt backbone with a slight bitter offset and a clean crisp finish. The malt flavor seems a bit watered-down. Otherwise a fine sample.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a mostly clear golden amber body with a small offwhite head. Aroma has floral and citrusy hop notes with a whiff of alcohol. Medium body and carbonation. Taste has a prevailing sweet caramel bready maltiness that is fairly well balanced by herbal hop bitterness. Just a hint of the alcohol that was more prominent in the aroma. Nicely balanced, overall, and very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Big alcohol laced aroma, sweet and doughy. Peach-orange color, just a hint of haze. A touch of buttery honey, doughy malt tones with a soft noble hop balance. Rather subtle and mellow, despite the sugary ABV. OK.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep gold in color with a thin white head. Malty with a hoppy finish and a bit of a honey-like sweetness. Still, seems light for its alcohol content.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz. bottle. Sweetly malty and lightly hoppy aroma, sugary and lightly spicy, with some lighter herbal, grassy tinges and toasted white bread character. Clear medium golden color with plenty of bubbles and a fine, white head. Flavor profile is sweet and mildly alcoholic to start, turning hoppier about midpoint and featuring some mildly peppery, grassy notes, and finishing with a blend of mild bitterness and lingering crackery malt sweetness. Mouthfeel is fairly thick, nearly syrupy, with a mild degree of effervescence and a medium body. Could use a bit more dryness and a slightly more assertive hop presence. I only purchased the one bottle, which is good, because I think it might be hard for me to finish a sixer of this stuff.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is much more like a pilsner to me than anything else. A watered down one at that. It hides the alcohol very well. I smell hops, slight wheat smell and not much else. I taste slight wheat, and a small amount of hops. I do not recommend this beer really unless you really want to rate something bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a clear golden yellow with almost no head at all. Aroma, though not strong, has some earthy hoppy characteristics. The taste is a mixture of sweet malts and very earthy hops. The sweetness is a bit too strong at times and takes away from this being a good imperial pilsener. The beer is not terrible, though there is nothing particularly notable about it.
