3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle -
Grand Teton makes some really great beer, so when I see this being carried at BevMo I donít hesitate to get it. Itís not a disappointment at all. Aroma had lots of straw, fruity notes. After awhile, some bell pepper like notes and catty hops creep up. Flavor has notes of apple juice, cloves, alcohol, catty hops, all wrapped up in notes of french bread. Finish is on the hot side. Probably one of the better imperial pilsners Iíve had.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
"strike this one up to me not paying attention, and Total Wine Reno just plain sucking. January 2011, really??!! This imperial pils was one day short of being a year and a half old! the aroma was more sweet malt than hops, and the flavor and feel was lacking the crisp hop bite I was hoping for, though there was some lingering bitterness. Time has not done any favors for the flavor, though I cant asy what it was like fresh. Tart and sweet, with little balance. Not very pleasant. Quit selling old sh--! Iíll try and remember to find a date next time."

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle that a friend brought over to my house, thanks man! Yellow color, fizzy, looks like a pilsener to me. Smells like a bit of minerals but the aroma is not very strong. The taste was nice but seemed more like a strong lager than a pilsener though it did make me think of Mikkeller Draft Bear, though much less hoppy.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy yellow with white fizz. The aroma is light lemony hopped with solid grainy pale barley. The taste is great, solid grainy lager with a very dry lemony herbal finish. Simple for the most part but really good. More drying but true to the earthy German hops and strong style. There is a nice baked bready German nature that is familiar and very tasty. To notch for the style.

I love the look of a nice cloudy beer, the aroma is hints of apples and pears. the palate is nice and meaty, I getting a raw alcohol flavor through the beer. the hops are dominate but not over powering. its a unique take.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is slightly hoppy with citrus hops, cardboard, and grainy malt. The appearance is cloudy and golden with a nice head. The taste is like the aroma with an astringent finish. The palate is smooth. Overall this is not good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler from Greenville Beer Exchange for my weekly "growler Saturday #6"
A: Pours a damn bright orange color with a small white cap. Retention is pretty good. Really looks like Orangina or watery orange juice.
S: Flowery, citrusy, and spicy hop varieties. Lots of lemon and lager yeast aromas. Very nicely balanced with pale malts, and quite hoppy
T: Similar to the nose...lots of citrusy/spicy hops, lemon, alcohol as it opens up with time, a light breadiness, and perfume
MF: Medium body, smooth carbonation, well done
O: I really enjoyed this one, very easy drinker despite the higher than normal ABV. Pairs very well with spicy food, in this case Jamaican jerk bbq pork sandwiches
Notes: Really enjoyable beer, lots of hops, lots of lemon in the flavor. Almost, but a shade less enjoyable than My Antonia in my opinion

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours from the bottle a light orange with a thin clinging head. Aroma is grapes, floral, and bready malt. Citrus zest start followed by toffee and a slightly toasted body. Finish has some lingering sweetness thatís a little unbalanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml. Brassy, golden body with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Aromas of sweet dried grass, a hint of lemon zest, and orange toffee. Taste is toffee, toasted grain, resinous and minty hop, and menthol cough syrup. Medium body is soft and slightly oily, has some alcohol warmth and finishes dry with lots of hop tingle. This is a quality brew, but the menthol hop flavors just donít do much for me.
