3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark golden/mild amber with a small whitish head that disappears quickly. The is somewhat sweet, fruity, floral, mildly grassy with hints of caramel. The flavor continues with the fruitiness. The grassy and floral hops are prominent as well. Some caramel malts with lightly toasted bread. The finish is moderately bitter. Medium bodied and pretty easy drinking. There are times where the flavor seems to fade a bit, but overall this is better than I expected it would be. I donít know how imperial this is either.

Hoppiness isnít 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.

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.
