3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Great blonde/amber color, actually looked amazing. But the taste is caramel, honey and alcohol, little bitterness The alcohol is just too much me, i was looking forward to compare this to DFH My Antonia, but they are completely different beers. Gets better wich each sip but not my kind.

Pours an amber gold with a thin white top. Aroma is malt and a nice floral hop. Taste is a bold blast of floral hops backed with a great caramel malt flavour. Excellent beer.

Bière dorée aux reflets d’ambre, parfaitement limpide et coiffée d’un fin col crème laissant une délicate dentelle au verre. Elle offre d’intenses arômes lactés de malt caramélisé, une houblonnage assez herbal et un filet d’alcool bien présent. Elle est moyennement amère, sans trop d’acidité ou de sucre résiduel. Elle est costaude, charnue, légèrement effervescente et se termine sur d’interminables arômes et une amertume moelleuse.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Brewhouse; color was orange/amber with a white head. Aroma of spice and citrus. I am not a pale lager fan though this was quite easy drinking considering. I find most PA’s quite bitter and dry. This had some bitterness but much less than usual

on tap at brewpub. light amber with a nice fluffy white head. strong aroma of biscuit and bread. taste has a great malt profile, with hints of caramel and rye bread. very clean tasting, alcohol barely seems barely there even at the advertised 8.5%. light bodied, medium carb. i’m not a huge fan of lagers in general, but this is an excellent beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear, dark golden/pale amber. Smallish white head. Aroma is surprisingly biscuity and fruity, with some floral and pepper notes. Taste is rather spicy and floral, with some touches of citrus and caramel as well. Good carbonation, somewhat sweet. Awesome pils with just a touch of IPA (really, it made me think of a way boozier St-Ambroise India Pale Ale) in mouth, but obviously without the finish. Awesome, really. Terrific Pils.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
341 ml Bottle. Pours a deep golden hue topped with a quickly diminishing off-white head; minimal spotty lacing around the glass. Aroma is a rich blend of cereals and floral hops, an enticing matrimony. Notes of honey and fruits linger about also. Flavor is quite hop-forward, prominent spicy and resinous character tapers off to a grainy sweetness and a lasting bitter finish. Lower carbonation lends a smoothness on the palate and a medium body supports the flavors quite well. Why have a regular Pilsner when you can have an Imperial one?
