NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Golden color. Aroma was kind of surprising. More (biscuity)malt than hops, along with an off, yeasty aroma. Flavor was a bit muddy. A bit malty sweet with ’dirty’ hops. Not a very clean beer. OK, but can’t Rogue’s Imperial Pilsner.

Bottle. Pours a ruddy orange color. Decent white head that fades rather quickly leaving a thin film. Some lacing. Aroma is a mix of malt and spicey hops. Pleasant balance with malt and hop in taste. Fairly smooth. A little more flavor than most lagers that I have tried. Very strong hop finish leaving tastes of citrus rind.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 7, 2005
Shared at the 12/18/04 Wisconsin gathering: Clear pale golden with a thin white lacy head. Semi-sweet pale malty aroma shows some European hoppiness. Body is lightly sweet turning more tart and acidic with some citrus presence. Needs more balance and Saaz hops though to be a double pilsner. Thanks DavidP for sharing!

Pailhead (6385) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Bottle: Sweet malty aroma with a light grapefruit hoppiness. Pours a transparent yellowish-orange with a nice white head with great retention. Real nice lacing. Euro lager flavors with a hoppy finish. Kind of a lighter version of an IPA. Thanks to wolhfs for this first sampling of Full Sail.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Pours a orange/red body, white fluffy head. Aroma is bitter hops, and oranges. Flavor is bitter sweet grapefruit, apricot, and lemons. Palate is dry and bitter. Very interesting, thanks to DavidP for sharing this!

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Clear orange body, thin white head. Bitter citrusy flavor. Tastes like an IPA, the hops are way too citrusy for a pilsener. The flavor is nice but doesn’t fit. Weak aroma, some pale malt.

heemer77 (5290) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 20, 2004
This pours with a medium sized white head. The color is a light gold and amber mix. The aroma is bread, dirt and carrots. Also some strange apples. A full and sticky mouthfeel. The taste is slightly bitter with a cheesey taste in teh middle of my mouth. It is slaty with celery. This is interesting, but not particularly drinkable.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Brewmaster’s reserve 2004. A light amber she pours, with a frothy head of off-white fluff. A nose of grainy sweet maltiness, with light citric notes. Full bodied, yet crisp on the tounge, there is some grassiness mingling with the alcohol. A definite improvement over the Rogue I have tried, the only other imperial pils to meet my acquaintance. Big for the style, and hardly reminiscent of the pilsners I am accustomed to, this beer is nevertheless quite drinkable and easy to like. Could use some more hopping to address the maltiness.

3fourths (9104) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Strong wet dog odor, vegetables as well... grassy with some sweet, sticky, almost hot alcohol. Malt-liquoresque... too hot, too sticky, and too grainy. No thanks.

zathrus13 (1764) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2004 Golden/amber color, with a white head. Aromas include hops, malt, and is also fruit and floral. Taste citrusy, with a decent amount of bitter hops. There’s some spice as well. Body is medium. Thanks to derekarent for sending this brew.
