Bottle. Poured with the simple visuals of an any day pilsner. Almost no head. The aroma, however, is HUGE! The beer drinks with a definite kick, rich with full-on malt and near-distillery-strength alcohol vapors. Very nice. (#4061, 1/23/2011)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Pours a clear deep golden with a spotty-lacing coating of white head. Has an authentic pilsner nose with some fresh grassy saaz hoppiness. Starts with pretty good fullness and light malty sweetness with a crisp floral saaz hoppy balance before a drier bittersweet finish. Well done and true to style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fairly pronounced aroma of honey. Clear amber, thin head, good lacing. Initially, malty with lime overtones but finishes grassy with a little grain. Not your typical pilsner, or even imperial pilsner, but a damn fine beer. Superb crafting!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy light gold with slight fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet gummy hay and yeast. Flavor is sweet maltiness up front and boozy dryer floral finish on the end. Overall, worth a try but not anything I’d go back to.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured hazy, duller golden with a sticky cap of white head. The aroma picked up a thick dose of earthy and floral hops upfront, over pale malt support and a pinch of honey.. wisps of cracked black pepper on the back of the nose. The flavor found more of the honey at the core, along with medium-skinned fruits.. peppery hops surrounded and complemented well.. dry, spicy finish with a hit of heat. Medium-bodied and fairly well carbonated on the palate.. a little too hot at the end, but otherwise interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from the Sahara Mart in Bloomington, IN. Pours a crystal clear, golden colored body with some orange to it. Finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is grainy pale malts, some nice zesty grass, a few florals, a touch of caramel, and a lightly sweetened cereal maltiness. Flavor is sweet and malty up front before it gives way to a solid grassy, zesty lemon, floral hoppiness. Some sweet oranges in there as well as some honey and sweeter cereal malts. Finishes very dry with a solid mixture of citrus-grass and sweeter malts to give this a light-moderate bitterness and lengthy aftertaste. Light-medium, smooth body and soft, light carbonation. Overall, an above average imperial pils. Has a pretty solid malt backing and hop presence that makes this fairly tasty. Doesn’t quite seem to flow perfectly together, but nonetheless, not bad.
