On tap at Breckenridge Blake St. Pours a lightly hazy golden color with a small white head falls quick to a ring. Aroma is pale malts, lightly bready with some citrus and floral notes. Taste is nice sweet bready malt with a good dose of spicy floral hops, that finishes with lingering citrus hints. Sweet malt base is held in check by the hops presence making it nicely balanced. Medium smooth body with moderate carbonation.

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. Itís a nice tasting beer, but a little weak as an Imperial Pilsener.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, pepper, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pine, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, grapefruit, orange zest, pear, pine, cracker, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, grapefruit, orange zest, pear, pine, cracker, bread, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance of malt, hop, and yeast flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice imperial pils. All around well balanced hop, malt, and yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
