3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle bought in March 2011 (price check: $9 at Famous Liquors, Lombard). It’s time! Pours at first like any other macro pale lager. Once the foam starts to settle, I can see the golden beer color is just a little hazy, Head pours pretty puffy over the rim of my narrow pilsener glass. Smell starts off with some citrusy hops, in fact, lime was the first thing I thought of, but sucking on the foam offers some Saaz as well. Finally getting into the beer itself, and I’m just saying what the hell. Malt is nice and thick, and surely all barley malt. Unabashedly teeming with alcohol. Hops have pretty much mellowed down in the palate, but when malts are this strong, I just think of a strong IPA that matches. I would like to have compared this to the Red White & Blue Malt Liquor, but I recall the other just tasted like strong beer. This is an imperially beastly brew indeed.

Yellow to orange color with a withe and long head. Very good lacing.
Hoppy aroma (pine, flowery) and tropical fruits. Nice but not very complex.
Intense bitter taste. Medium body and medium carbonation,
Dry and quite long ending.

Bottle at home. Yeah so like I said, I was a bit distracted when I was drinking this beer and didn’t keep a note. Sorry.. however, I do remember it was pretty awesome.

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.

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.
