4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours gold with a large head.
Nose shows grapefruit, orange blossom and some biscuity malt.
Pretty aggressive flavours, very hoppy. Pine and grapefruit with a fair whack of sweet clean malt too. Aggressive sharp bitterness in the finish. Very clean, making the bitterness stand out even more. Seems a bit disjointed.
Great moderately high carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not what I was expecting a imperial pilsner to look or taste like. Poored a hazy pale yellow, slight white head. taste was nice with a touch of the high alcohol coming through. The hops were not really what I expeted they were a lot more subtle I wanted a little more from them. Over all nice but not outstanding.
