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

A golden lager. Crisp cereals with a hint of corn and iron to the nose. Sweet with a nettle bitterness. The bitterness is light white peppercorn and lasts for avery short period. There is a little arugula herbiness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle from S.Salem Freddys.$5.99
Typical pilsner..cooking oil yellow with a small bubbly white head.
Again pretty typical aromas, bready hop and a grassy hoppiness.
Not typical taste..starts off semi sweet and very malty like a helles lager, then gets some bitterness, but its not really that pleasant.like a slight battery acidity bitterness.,then fades to sweetness again. Odd
Mouthfeel is generally acceptable if not thick.
I judged this as a malt liquor and as such it is good..its a terrible pilsner however

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Full grassy aroma with a pepper and citrus note. Tang in the flavour, some pepper and a peppery finish. Some grease in the mouthfeel. Not a bad lager, but doesnít taste much like a pilsner

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 donít 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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburís 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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
