frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Golden orangish color with a mid sized white head. Ligh buttery sweet malts, lemon zest and grass in the aroma. Light sweetness initially with a very subtle hint of butterscotch, some light citrus behind it. Pretty well balanced, moderate bitterness in the finish. Not bad.

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.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - APR 16, 2006
Bottle, 04. Golden pour, decent head. Light malty aroma with a good amount of grassy peppery hops. My bottle held up well, and the malts only showing as touch of age in aroma and flavor - it has been in a fridge the whole time I have had it. Similar flavors - light malty flavors, that seem to showcase grassy peppery and a touch earthy hops. Clean finish. Fairly decent I felt.

Bomber. Grainy malt aroma with notes of grassy and floral hops as well as a pinch of citrus. Pours clear pale golden colored with one finger of white head that has excellent retention but very little lacing. Starts with grainy malt flavors with a little bit of citrus mixed in as well. Finishes crisp, clean and refreshing with slight amounts of grassy and floral hops to dry and cleanse the palate. Nice pils.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2003
Hazy, honey golden color. Not too much active carbonation. An aroma with slightly more hops than the typical pilsner. Pretty citrus-y for a pilsner, then again that can be expected coming from Full Sail. This is my favorite pilsner as of yet.

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....

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!

At Argo0’s: Wow. I actually like double pilsners. Very pleasent, which was not what i was expecting. A very full hoppy flavor.

vyvvy (5863) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Pours clear yellow with a white head. The aroma has rich malt, herbal spice hops and some alcohol. It has a fairly full body with study carbonation. The taste is pretty rich and malty with only a bit of hops that are on the earthy and floral side. Decent

Ratman197 (13278) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Bomber poured a clear gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of bread, yeast and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of bread and light earthiness with a hint of yeast and a smooth dry lightly bitter finish.
