Gerbeer (1668) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear yellow/gold with light head of big bubbles. Aromas of malt, yellow fruit, and light toffee. Flavors of candy, lemons, malt, light spice, and resin. Bitter. Nice.

ngeunit1 (1555) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 2, 2012
A - Pours a clear golden-yellow color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of lemon and citrus hops, sweet grainy and cracker malts, and some floral hops. T - Starts off with grainy and cracker malts with some lemon and citrus hops and a bit of bitterness. Through the middle, some pine and floral come through with some more bitterness. The finish is a mix of bready and grainy malts with some lemon, citrus, and piney hops and some bitterness and lager esters. M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a grainy and lightly bitter finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice imperial pilsner with good overall malt and hop balance.

Jimthechap (1549) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 8, 2011
A big cold pint that I had to let sit to warm so I could smell it. Lovely golden colour with a white head that left in short order. Aromas tend toward big alcohols, dry hops, gooseberry , grassy dryness and greengages. The flavours attack in a rush of green fruits and then it dries becoming astringent until it offers up a lovely malty richness. An Imperial Pilsener. This made me think a bit as to the purpose of an Imperial Pilsener. I’m not having a go at the brewers as it is a laudable thing to explore styles and techniques, I wish more breweries would. But if I’m off to the pub for a couple of pints, do I have one or two of these and blow my head off or do I have three or four pints of other beers (Epic included) and wander home in a state of mildly blissful fuddlement? When I think of an Imperial tag, I think of a beer to end the night on - a porter, stout or barley wine. But this is a big cold pint and probably better suited to earlier drinking... but is it? Damn it. I wish I had better self-control.

beerledgend (1197) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 28, 2012
Bright orange colour with big white head. Mild hop aroma. Hop resin mouthfeel with mild hop flavour, I say mild as Luke normally loves hops, so this is very tame for him.

Bendrixian (1067) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
clear colour, golden colour. aromas are tropical fruit, some hoppy note, very nice considering it’s a pils. somewhat nutty and malted. big bitter notes, very boozy burn, dry hopped bitterness flavour, which i find weird. finishes slightly malted. it is almost salty!. strange but interesting.

Atheist_Peace (927) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear golden pour with white head that doesn’t really last. Smells of marshmallow, citrusy hops. Light on the palate with a big hoppiness that seems oddly out of place. Fairly bitter but so very light in body. Burns a little. An interesting attempt.

floydian1 (898) - FNQ, Australia, - MAY 21, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Appearance of a bright golden body with loose average-sized white head. Honey malts on the nose with herbal and grassy notes and a hint of alcohol. Some tropical fruity elements in there as well (eg. pineapple, rambutan). The smooth malt bill reminded me of a Duvel golden ale but this one has less complex hopping. Finishes with a moderate dry bitterness that lingers. Remarkably light bodied for the ABV. It is a good brew but pricy in Australia at almost $18 a bottle.

ciaranc (784) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 28, 2012
A strange beer this, promise of a big hoppy pils descends into burning alcohol, phenolic, band aids with an unpleasant bitter after taste. Not sure if my 500ml bottle is off or what

omega (680) - NEW ZEALAND - DEC 12, 2011
Pours a nice foamy head with lots of vitality in the bubbles. Being an "imperial" pilsner this beer is lighter than your normal IIPA has has a touch more sweetness to it. Would have like to have seen more hops come through on the palate.

bmeup (508) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2012
Clear golden colour and tight white head. Grassy, citrus and sweet berry aromas. Some grain and herbal character. Quite bitter, heavy and full bodied with a boozy lengthy finish.
