3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz single from Crossroads. Poured a bit thinner than I was expecting, solid clear gold body with a smaller to almost average sized bright white foamy head. Aroma is dusty chalk, green grape skins, dry bread crusts, corn husk. Body once again is a bit thinner than I was expecting, lighter carbonation and a chalky aftertaste, watery overall. Flavor is the same as the aroma. Blah, not bad but when something claims to be Imperial Iím looking for a "Big" beer not just a tiny bit pumped up.

This poured a pale yellow color with a white head. Aroam was of corn, grass and lots of alcohol. Flavor was sweet pale malt, alcohol and mild noble hops. Stop imperializing pilsners!

Carpet. All the flavors expecting in Pils but not pronounced. Honey sweetness lingers, noble hop is mute. Drinkable but not great example of style.

This is one of the better beers from Breckenridge. Light and crisp with a strong bitterness and potent amount of alcohol.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice looking 12 oz bottle pours hazy golden. Tons of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Tried to pour slowly to avoid it, but pretty sure some got through. Tons of damascenone in aroma and flavor. Just grape big league chew all the way through. Pretty dry finish. Definitely full-bodied for a lager. Pretty nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Perfect for what it is. A slightly hoppier version of a pilsner with a nice ABV boost. Hazier than a normal pils, but has a nice head and good clean taste and crisp maltiness.

On tap at Breckenridge Brewery & BBQ. Gold and clear with a white head. Pilsner malts, pale malts, noble hops and light fruit. Medium body with a crisp, clean feel. Medium bitterness and light sweetness with a smooth finish. It was OK.

Not enough time to explain, but it was a pretty good experience. Nice color, great palate, and an awesome bottle.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Fairly clear yellow-gold pour. Smaller white head. Grain and cracker, booze comes out, a bit syrupy and rich. Nice!

Pours a clear gold with a finger off creamy head. A touch of lacing down the glass.
Smell is a bit of malt sweetness with a little cracker grainy aroma. No hops in the aroma.
Starts off with a little cracker malty flavor. Just a touch of hop spice in the finish, but it is quickly overwhelmed by an intense grainy sweet finish. Not too bad until that sickingly sweet finish.
A little bit thick and medium carbonation levels.
Whoa that aftertaste really doesnít work for me. Iíve had worse, but this is far from the best.
