3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyable and easier to imagine coming back to than a lot of Sam’s more extreme creations. Nose of sweet malts and hops. Amber with a large white head, good lacing. Not over the top on any dimension. Takes liberty with the pils / lager description by hopping more strongly and with some PNW hops. More of an American Pale, I think. Nice combination of old world floral and new world citrus hopping, whatever the beer is called.

Pours orangey with a foamy head. Aroma is citrus fruits, oranges, Clementines those kind of fruits. Taste is smooth, little sweetness with a bitter finish. Quite a nice beer

Amarelo alaranjada, espuma branca, boa formação e retenção. Aroma misto de fermento, lúpulo e um pouco de malte, sem características específicas. Boa, vale experimentar.

On tap @ BA Sundbyberg. Light bread, fruit and loads of honey. The flavor grows a lot on you, to the worse.

Rather hoppy Imerpial Pils. It has a nice thick and soft texture with a sweet (vanilla-like) aroma.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy with a white top. Strong hopy aroma. Sweet hopy full taste with bitter notes. Easy drinking despite the 7.5%.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange brown beer with a big foamy head.
Smell is nicely citric and metallic with lots of minerals and subtle fruitiness, cherries, pears. Also some coriander and white pepper. Bready.
Taste is dry sour bitter with an astringent finish. Touch of chanpagne-like spiciness full of flowers and spices. Bit of alcoholic bitterness and some malt.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Super sweet enticing nose. Big fluffy creamy sticky white head. Cloudy hazy deep unfiltered yellow. Excellent carbonation which leads to a soothing tickling sensation in the mouth. Just don’t like the ’Imperial Pilsner’ designation. Far far too heavy to have any connection with a pilsner. So much better when not railroaded into a style designation.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mild yellow grayish color. The smell is a bit awesome and refreshing. The taste is round, sweet and bitter. Really good beer that is far from what I would call a pils.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pilsner with a mix of malts and hops but a nice blend that gives it a good flavor and a good palate with an overall treat.
