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.

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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
