A huge step up from thier ’regular’ pilsner. This was full of taste, with nice ABV. Very spicy and dry. A fine beer.

Orange. Thick orange head, collapsing. Nose is malty, and fruity as grape or vaguely citrus. Very hopbitter – so much that distinction between noble or bitterhops becomes moot. Citrussy retronasal, long. Mouthfeel is a bit oily, very full-bodied. Refreshing all the same. Nice. Given blind, Pilsener is the last thing I’d thought of.

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - SEP 4, 2003
hoppy and APAlike aroma, gold with a small head, lots of hop flavors with hints of caramel maltiness, piney bitter hops blend into a bitter berry hop finish, tastes more like an IPA

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

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.

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.

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.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Ahhh-yeaah - Super-Saaz Me! Bright orange copper with big foamy head and thick sheets of lace that slowly sink down the sides of the glass. Pepper and grapefruit aroma. Palate is pretty thick, maltwise, and sweeter than expected. The big saaz is there to dry it out though. Very aggressive, nearly astringent in it’s power, resiny and hints of orange peel and ultimately ending with lemon and a peppery dryness.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Clear, bright, honey-golden appearance, fresh, chalk-white head, 1/4" and slowly dissapating. Aroma: lively hoppiness, Saaz, I’d bet, floral, herbal, and sweet, distinctive and impressive. Big mouthfeel, full blast of tantalizing hops that sweetly ring the mouth, before drying out. This play on the palate returns in every sip , and before long the larger than average ABV starts to ring forward and rise above the flavor, projecting itself as a major player in the overall profile. Now, I’m not sure why the meaning of this brew’s name escaped me so far, but I get it now! Vry tasty, with a rich, amber flavor, slightly buttery, but classically pilsneresque, with an extra edge.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Lots of hops in this strong double pils, citrus taste to the hops and a slight grapefruit finish. Pours a nice amber with tall white head. Slightly grassy flavor to the malt in the beginning and a strong bitterness to balance the finish. A really nice bite to this brew, tasted a bit stronger than 7%.
