Tap. Golden with small head. Very rich and hoppy pils. Decent, but definitely not to style.

adnielsen (10490) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a pretty clear, golden appearance with a white head. Lemon, grassy/herbal, chewy grainy, slightly spicy, pils malty aroma. Slightly sweet, lemony, very spritzy, grassy, cracker, strong flavor with a bit of booze. Not sure why they hopped it up at 8% abv. Kind of disappointing.

NachlamSie (3296) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle from Liquor World. This has potential. It’s quite hoppy and dry with pleasing bite. There’s some skunk and hay too. The flavor has the cereal and woody bitterness. But there’s metallic, vegetal twang in the finish. This could be much better if not for the off flavors lurking.

Pours a blonde straw color, almost clear but slight haze. Thin white head dissipates rather quickly leaving some light lacing. Smells mainly floral with subtle spice and biscuit. Malty start with a slightly spicy bitterness, followed by strong alcohol finish that stays on the palate. Fairly creamy body. Pretty good. The alcohol bite at the end is a little drawback for me, doesn’t seem to fit. Still enjoyable, most of the pilsner characteristics are there.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - DEC 18, 2012
22oz bottle. Clear golden yellow with a medium sized white head. Aroma of herbal tea, hay and bready pils malt. Flavor is malty without being sweet, medium hop bitterness, no alcohol and a very clean yeast profile. Light body with average carbonation. Nice easy drinking beer, drinks like a lower abv beer.

Gachupines (1251) - USA - DEC 14, 2012
Straw color with a thin white head. Aroma is slight hops, not too much else. Flavor is similar to a lightly hopped IPA with the body and clean finish of a pilsner. Not bad actually, decent enough choice if you want something light but hoppy.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Bottle:   Yellowish straw, fairly clear, light carbonation, moderate to large frothy white head, decent lacing.   Has a rich mealy background, somewhat reminds me of white grape juice.   Fairly mealy on the tongue.   A little rough, fresh hops don’t seem at play in this at all.   Not sure why an Imperial Pils would be chosen for a Fresh Hop type offering.   I do get some soft notes of hops, perhaps a bit bright or fresh, but the mealiness overshadows it.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   I have had some not so fresh hop Imperial Pils that are much more crisp than this one.   Yeah, just not a fan... would prefer they go back to either a IPA or IIPA category.   Leave the Imperial Pils to the Europeans.   Mealy, beyond my nightmares.

bottle. crystal clear gold under a frothy, white head. pale pilsner malt, gum and a bit of plastic. red apple skins, light fusels, gum, fresh floral hops. not overly hopped, like i first expected, but instead it’s a fittingly fresh hop addition. not something would i would drink regularly, but they did nice job with this.

poisoneddwarf (2297) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Bomber bought at Fred Meyer in CDA, ID. Pours slightly hazy golden with a medium white collapsing head; falls into a collar of big-bubbly foam and a little lace. Aroma is a bit skunky, hayfield, unimpressive. Taste starts out lightly sweet before becoming really bitter mid-palate and remaining that way through the long finish. Carbonation is softer than expected. Very flawed.

22 oz. from Fred Meyer @ $6,09. Typically I find most fresh hop ales lacking in theie hop profile. This one does exceedingly well and the pilsner style leads to a very easy drinking beer that still satisfies. God, that sounded like a Budweiser commercial. Must be the 8% ABV.
