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.

12oz bottle from Timmy. Pours a clear golden yellow with a small foamy white head. Aroma of lemons, grain, yeast, and hints of honey. Taste of stale grain, old lemons, bitter earthy hops, honey topped bread, and a weird medicinal aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Moderate malt note of grain, light to moderate herbs for the hops, with hints of wood, honey, and peppery arugula. Head is small, fizzy/frothy, white with fair lacing and is almost fully diminshing. Color is slightly hazy yet sparkling light amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, a little slick with a fizzy carbonation and a lightly alcoholic and drying finish. It’s a nice tasting beer, but a little weak as an Imperial Pilsener.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a rich golden amber, clear, with a medium sudsy white frothy head. Aroma is strong noble hops, lightly cheesy, some rich bready caramel just under, smells pretty nice. Flavor isn’t quite as good, almost a tart rich caramel which overshadows the crispness of the hops, bit sticky on the finish, lightly cheesy, a bit too rich basically syrupy, lots of caramel detracts from the hops, some nice floralness is there though, gritty unclean, alkaline finish. Medium bodied, doesn’t feel that thick in the mouth but leaves a big sticky syrupy feeling after swallowing, the carbonation is okay, big fluffy and sizzling but it fades fast. Can’t ever turn down an Imp Pils.
