jredmond (5196) - Manhattan, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Draft at Blind Tiger with Andrew, Streets, Mark, Ben and Kyle. Pours a deep hazy orange body with nice cloudiness. Aroma is fruit, funk, spicy notes, and pils. Mouthfeel is thin to medium with dryer notes bleeding through the finish. One of the most flavorful pilsners Iíve ever tried. Thanks DDC.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2005
Tap- RBSG 05. Pours a deep copper with a slight film of a head. Aroma is thick sweet pure pilsner malt, lightly bready with a touch of dms. Some alcohol and spice from the european hops are noticed throughout but it is mostly dominated by malt. Moderate bitter finish in the end. Relatively smooth overall but a bit hot in alcohol.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2011
Bottle: Poured a clear dark golden color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with light dry hops notes is interesting. Taste is more dominated by sweet malt notes then Nobel dry hops then I was expecting. Body is fuller then expected with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Interesting take of the style but I would personally have preferred more Noble hops notes.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2004
Spicy hops dominate the caramel malts with some fruity notes. Clear copper coloured with strong white head that recedes to generous cover with marginal lacing. Intense spicy hop flavour with nice round, sweet maltiness and pleasing, unaggressive bitterness. Crisp in the mouth and refreshing on the tongue. Excellent carbonation. On tap at the brewpub for their 6th anniversary.

CapFlu (4459) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2005
(Draught) At the brewpub. Described as an Imperial Pilsner, this beer has kick, body and looks. I was very impressed with the malty flavours covering the orange and peach undertones. Extremely well balanced. Lovely colour and deserving of a second sample - which I had!

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Sample at the Mondial. Bright, cloudy orange-gold, thick white head of moderate duration...lightly fruity/malty nose, melon and dry grass...big malty flavors, light alcohol, sweet and a bit syrupy, grainy and with strange hints of licorice, herbal/grassy hops subdued to the rather thick mouthfeel which dries out considerably at the finish. Seems a bit oxidized to me, but still worth a try.

ClarkVV (3891) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 7, 2005
On draught at the brewpub and at the fest, June 2005. Light, yet brilliant goldenrod and straw colored beer, slight chill haze, but mostly clear, with a moderate white head, decent retention, low lacing. Aroma of grassy, rustic, floral, herbal, citrus and spicy hops. Everything but the bathroom sink, as far as the hops profile, it seems. Notes of sweet pils malt, but mainly just the juicy fruits. Flavor is full of hops, more flavor than bitterness, but still plenty of bitterness. Juicy fruits from the nose, grapefruit, minty/herbal hops, green grassy hops. Malt provides a backbone, of sweet honey and light doughiness, but does not have that syrupy, hugely sweet thickness that other Imperial Pilseners have. And when the hops are done this well, thatís a good thing. Some of the most flavorful hops belches Iíve encountered. FInish is moderately bitter, lightly spicy and fairly sweet, with a medium body. I didnt find any alcohol. Carbonation was relatively low for the style, and the mouthfeel was slick and bordering creamy at points, though there is some thinning of body on the end. Could stand a little more crisp yeast in the nose too. I really like J.F.ís pilseners.

Iím drinking glorified malt liquor on the street in Montreal with the cops driving by, sirens running. Smells malty and boozy. A little nobel hops, Czech style. I didnít get busted. Bottle from Delires du terroirs.
