2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is citrusy and soapy with a pale malt backbone. The appearance is golden with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall this just isnít enjoyable to me despite not having major flaws.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, purchased from Dutchís for $2.67. Totally clear yellow-orange color, minimal white head, active-looking carbonation, some lacing. Really nice bottle. Really nice savory fresh hop aroma, very little of the skunk that Iím accustomed to finding in "pilsners", nor the alcohol bite typical of this style. Great carbonation and texture, good mouthfeel. Nice, hoppy aftertaste. Good, but because of the price this is a brew I can never again justify buying. Itís not $2.67 good. Just a very unique pilsner, worth trying once.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep gold into a shaker. Bright white head with little retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet caramel aromas. Medium-bodied with sweet caramel, resin and a sweet hot pine finish.

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.

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.

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a bottle this color leaves no inkling of the flavor. Looks like a pale lager but has a piercing hop bite that approaches many strong apa or mild ipa. Long bitter super strong pils finish. Lasts a medium amost of time before the finish mellows out. Does not hide the alky well, even at 7%. Not much in the aroma.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy medium orange color. The head was a few fingers high, white, and reduced gradually to a thin lasting film. Some nice lace was left behind on the glass at the end. Smelled of caramel, subdued tropical fruit, and cereal grain. There was the slightest whiff of noble hops. Medium bodied and slightly sweet. Muted flavors that included cereal grain, grape candy, and hay.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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!

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.
