3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml can bought at Little Beer Shop in SoHo, Central.
Looks: Cloudy hazy golden honey with faint trace of yeast hazeone and a half finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 3 mniutes; Beautiful sticky lacing with near zero carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant full Pils malt, with strong passion fruits, raw grapes, yellow fruits, notes of grapefruits, floral, molasses, biscuits, yeast, lemon and thin grass.
Taste: Mid to light sweet Pils malt, with light passion fruits, light honey, molasses, dry biscuits, yeast, strong lemon, strong bitter hops and sharp grass.
Body: Close to medium body. Dry and slightly creamy palate.
Mouth Feel: Very good Pils maltyness in somewhat thin but very smooth background. Nelson Sauvin dominates with unassuming passionfruits, honey and lemon. Strong bitterness is well balanced by subtle sweetness. Lovely!
Hoppiness: Strong passion fruits, raw grapes, yellow fruits, notes of grapefruits, floral, and lemon in nose. Light passion fruits, molasses, strong lemon and sharp grass I taste; Bitterness is intense but pleasant for a lasting, high astringent bitter-sweet finish.
After Taste: Dry. Fruity, creamy and nicely bitter to mouth.
Comments: After the Pils and Thrills, things can only get better with this Imperial Pils and I was right: excellent heads with wine yeast, solid Pils maltyness, and Nelson Sauvin with good aroma and taste. Well rounded with lovable bitter and sweet balance. Almost perfect!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Beer Deluxe, Fed Square
Pale gold, holds a good creamy head.
Prominent hop nose; citrus rind, passionfruit, guava, grass, a touch of pale pilsener malt toastiness.
Med-full body, resiny, not sure of its strength but it feels pretty big!
Delivers a good measure of hops on the body; passionfruit, citrus rind, grass, melon, bitterness seems a bit subdued at first but builds.
Imperial pilsener? Full on but enjoy the hop character.
