Bottle - Clear golden colour, small, short life white head. Aroma of malts, some caramel, low flowery hops. Taste is sweet malty, with some fruity notes, light hop bitterness. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, dry and a bit watery, alcoholic finish. Not good, unbalanced.

(330ml Bottle) In a snifter . I had no idea this beer existed 2 hours ago and I have had two bottles of this bohemian juice since . The green bottle gives a grate skunky texture to the nose ..with hops , grass, toasted bread , raw booze . These Imperial Pils’ I’ve been drinking this week (third new tick ) don’t really keep a good head , a fucking ring of white above golden boost juice . Sipping this beer and looking at the negative scores makes me realise most ratebeerians are idiots . A decent beer , bready malts , flowery hops , boost and drinkability . fuck u .

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2016 Deep gold thick creamy tight white head, poured in a pilsner glass effervescent looks like a typhoon going on in there. Strong sweet malt and bread aroma, taste full sweet with bitter balance bit of fruit bread going on. Excellent!

Pours a clear golden color, topped with a small to medium white soapy head. Aroma is grainy amlt, sweet feel, slight alcohol presence. Taste i ssimilar. Sweet and malty, some bitterness in the finish. Alcohol presence. Too strong and too sweet. Not my favourite, really.

Grisza77 (572) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 12, 2015
Złote, klarowne piwo o słabej pianie, która szybko redukuje się do zera. Aromat słaby słodowy. W smaku wyraźna słodowość z nutą chmielu. Goryczka niska w stronę średniej, przyjemna, ziołowa. Ogólnie całkiem pijalne, szału nie ma, ale jak na koncerniaka nie jest źle.
