COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed exclusively for The Drafting Room by our good friends at Troegs Brewing. Loaded with Warrior, German Northern Brewer, Hallertau Hersbrucker, Styrian Golding, and Nugget - with a touch of malts to create a wonderful, crisp Imperial Pilsener with a bracing hop bite that lingers on the tongue.

I thought this was really amazing. Nice pilsener style, sweet, almost a candycane sweet. Had a bit of spice, nice smooth body, very nice brew.

Draft at DRE. Hazy medium golden pour with 1-finger whitish head. The aroma is very hoppy and citric, with a solid amount of floral spicy peppery hints. It smelled to me like a sort of hoppy saison at first, with a lot of peppery notes. The palate is medium, crisp, and complex, with flavors of pale malt, citric hops, and a lot of finishing black pepper and some floral notes, all while stylistically retaining the pilsner signature. I had a pint, then a growler, and I’ll be going back for another growler or two of this. And, indeed, the 7% alcohol is truly well hidden. This one is great.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Clear golden body with a clean foamy white head. Citrusy pineapple aroma with sourdough and hay notes. Doughy pale malt background in the flaovr, plus abundant fresh hops. Has a vague lemony-cat box quality. Lightly sweet with some notable tartness and developing bitterness. A big, hoppy pilsner. This is a little rough around the edges, but grew on me.

As far as "regular ol-" lagers go, this is one of the best, a dark golden color with a modest white head, left a nice lacing around the glass, nose of wheat, slight citrus & bread, flavors of grapefruit, caramel & toast, full-bodied, got that "full" feeling after finishing a pint of this, a very well-done lager

Tap. Yellow with nice white head. Aroma was pilsner like. Malty note throughout. The taste was pretty firm with some sweetness. citrus hop finish. Thicker. The sign stated that this was an imperial pilsner.....thats what it looked and tasted like, not a european strong ale.

TomDecapolis (4470) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 23, 2007
On tap at the D Room. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a medium creamy lacing white head. Aroma of light citrus, floral, cereal grains and pretzels. Lots of hop flavor and bitterness, some grapefruit, bready and piney. Being a lager there is not a whole lot of fruitiness so the hop flavor and bitterest is up front.

hopdog (8852) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2007
On tap at TDR Springhouse. Happens to be my RB rating #3,200. Poured a meduim golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas and tastes of grass (not an overpowering grassiness), light spices, some citrus and somewhat of a honey sweetness. Didn’t realize the alcohol content was over 7%.

egajdzis (5302) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Poured a hazy dark golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of bread, toffee malts, citrus, cereal, and floral hops. Taste was sweet up front, cereal grains, wood, bubblegum, light skunk, toffee malts, vanilla, citrus, and a moderate bitterness in the finish. Light alcohol as well in the finish.
