3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to bierkoning, in order to celebrate his 10 000th rating! Hazy gold pour, with white head. Aroma is pretty mellow, light honey notes, mild boozy malty aromas, somewhat like a Czech specialni pils, light hay, faint grassy hop. Taste is intense, really malty, yet pretty easy drinking, nice full bodied maltiness like a good kellerbier, with a bit of a boozy finish only good imperial lagers have. Palate is med-full bodied, soft carbonation. Really tasty stuff.
