heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Pale golden, brilliantly clear. Floral hops, a bit of saaz-y stink, and some alcohol. Moderate-bodied, quite bitter actually, with bits of honey and apricot. Retains quite a bit of pilsner qualities for its strength. (Obviouslly not as light on the tongue as something like Pilsner Urquel, but thats obvious...) Good, but about 6 oz is perfect, now what to do with the other 16....

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Pours a clear light orange with a big fluffy mostly white head. Slightly metallic with a fruity malty caramel aroma. Citrus flavor with some malt sweetness. Bitter hop finish. Good.

Terminus (3545) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 5, 2004
22 oz bottle-thanks to Mromero548 for bringing this one down from Colorado. A clear orange hue(looks like an IPA) with aggressive carbonation. sweet malts and lemon grass aroma. full body, but slightly cloying. short finish but there are some spicy hops in it. lots of malt for a double pilsner. I prefer the rogue over this one.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2004
Bright brassy orange body and soft snow white head. Nice nutty and wheaty aroma. Firm bitterness, band-aid, honey, maple, and apricot qualities in the flavor. Has some hidden complexity. Interesting beer but grows a bit tedious after awhile.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Pours a light amber with perfect clarity. Nice head but hardly any lacing. Smells malty with a hint of hops and some alchohol. Tastes like a combination of a Pilsner and a Barleywine. Wow. Alcohol is definatly present. I'm quite serious that it's a definate mix of pilsner and barleywine. It has the definate characteristics of both. Name a taste of either and it's there. Yes, I'm serious. The alcohol is not masked at all, though. Mouthfeel is nice and full while being quite crisp. Drinkability suffers only from the strong alcohol content.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Golden in color with a fluffy head and lots of tiny bubbles. Very hoppy aroma with a hint of alcohol. Grapefruity bitter flavor with a buttery alcohol burn at the rear. Decent beer.

Reid (2302) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 10, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Ok the 2003 Reserve is here!! and its way stronger..weighing in at 7.2% Comes in the 22 oz brown bomber..with the new moderd looking Full Sail label..nice bright blue and yellow. This is a wondeful pilsner bier to behold deep dark honey golden colour..with a nice sized white head..nice carbonation strings..head goes fast but some lovelly lacing is around all down my glass. Very livelly aroma of spicy hops is evident..also a nice doughy aroma. Wow this is one hoppy pilsner..the hops are very "sharp"..alcohol aftertatse but its well balanced..theres even some remanents of malt after wards..alcohol warming in the throat. Nice and spicy on the palte but it smooths out near the end. Very nice drinkable beer..what is this though "Double Pilsner" it says on the label..Imperial Pilsner anyone? Rerate 2017....weird but still an excellent beer...after 13 years still a solid 4

Realy not that impressed.I really wanted to like this one, but it seemed one dimensional. The "Saazy-ness" was not impressive.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2003
Pours a nice, clear, deep copper color with a small white head that does not last long. Mildly hoppy aroma with a strong malty sweetness present. Full body with low carbonation and a smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is malty sweet with lots of hops present. The finish is hoppy with a burst of lingering bitterness at the very end. I like the idea of an imperial pilsner. This one is big and flavorfull with lots of hops and malts.

Lots of hops in the nose. Flavor is a malty hoppy experience. Nice bitter finish.
