2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, lemon, flowers), with light notes of honey and detergent.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky.
Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Pretty good for this brewery...solid amount of bitterness and attractive hops. Some flaws and rough edges, but nothing too offensive. Good effort.

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 don’t know how imperial this is either.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to pint. Looks decent; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells and tastes semi-sweet, doughy, and mildly hoppy with an average mouthfeel; not much of a snap for a pils though. Alright.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this one on tap at the Fort Worth Flying Saucer Fall beerfest.
The beer pours a golden color with a white head. The aroma is some grassy hops along with a lot of bready malt. Not nearly as hoppy smelling as a lot of the imperial pilseners that I have tried. The flavor is more of the same, with a lot of malt and a little bit of grassy and spicy hop character. The alcohol is present, but not too strong. Medium body and medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden pour, sticky white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma has some brief wisps of alcohol a touch of honey sweetness. Flavor is a bit harsh, but full bodied. Pick up some sweet honey accents, a touch of honey, some nectarine and honeydew melon sweetness and a touch of booziness. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Kind of like a malt liquor with high quality ingredients. Brought back from Orlando by my wife.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The bottle that I picked up at the Binny’s in Orland Park, IL, labels this as Regal Double Pilsner and, considering the ABV, this should probably be listed under the renamed catch-all category for strong pale lagers. It pours a clear golden body with a modest head that rapidly devolves into a film with a few scattered large bubbles. The aroma is a blend of sweet cereal and floral and grassy hops with some underlying alcohol. The alcohol is more prominent in the flavor, and the hops take on an earthy bitterness. Not too bad, but a bit muddled.
