3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(draft) Clear straw body with white head. Aroma is mild, medium sweet, cereal, some grassy, apple. Taste is medium sweet, grassy, apple, cereal. Medium body, some crispness, quite drinkable. Seems more like a regular pilsner at the high end of things than an Impy, but maybe that is just me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft... Clear, yellow lager with a small, creamy, white head. Grain and toffee aroma. The flavor is malty-sweet up front, but very well-bittered on the backside. Notes of honey and grapefruit rind. Full-bodied and silky with lively carbonation. Balanced finish. Sweet, then dry and grassy. One of the better pilseners I’ve tried!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a golden color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy, and floral hops, light resin, and caramel malts. Taste of grains, citrus hops, vanilla, and dough, which was balanced by a medium sweetness that eventually took over. Medium bitterness in the finish, with a touch of alcohol as well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Bowie. Hazy yellow-orange,some true to style green tints. Foamy, nice head. First sip is sort of intense, comes off a little stronger than 6.5%. Malty and rich, but also has a tasty, grassy, noble hop character. Pretty solid, captures the style well.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice-sized draught sample at the Bel Air location. Fully lasting, beautifully bright white snowcap atop the clear, bright golden body....absolutely tremendous, huge, intoxicating aroma offering overripe bananas, light fuesal alcohol notes, sweet almonds, vanilla and faint noble hops as grassy freshness exerts itself....the body is lightly sweet, with lots of dry herbs, but very full and a touch sticky/syrupy....vanilla shows up here again with lots of fruity esters and faint alcohol growing with more and more sips, golden raisins and a bit of dry cherry....very full with quite low carbonation, somewhat harsh and astringent to finish but overall edgy, distinctive and surprisingly drinkable and enjoyable. A joy; best from this fine brewer I’ve had yet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Arundel Mills location. Pours a reasonably pale, honey-orange color; copper-like appearance; off-white head with excellent, fine-bubbled lacing. Candy sugar, citrus bitterness, and some toasty malts in the aroma; slightly elusive nose, but a clear, clean hop character. Lively, almost sharp carbonation (and served quite cold). Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy, resiny citrus and earthy hops upfront (minimal astringency); oranges and toasty malts and sticky sugar at the core; tasty and a lot more drinkable than many "imperial pilsners." Lengthy finish, showing zesty citrus and oranges; some dry hop bitterness.
