3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes. Thanks to Drew and Jen for the bottle.
Served in a tulip glass. Pours golden with a white head and a bit of lacing as the beer goes down. The nose is lightly hoppy with a floral character. A lot of malty grain and a bit of bread. The taste is malty, bready, and a bit spicy with a bit of booze. Feel is pretty crisp with nice carbonation. A good beer, but a bit too much.
Serving type: bottle

Bottle. Gold with a thin head. Quiet soft hoppy nose. Big pepper taste, followed by BBQ?, then booze. This is a confused boozy beer. Hard to Imperialize such a delicate style.

Tap at Capones. Pours a lightly hazy golden yellow with a large foamy white head. Aroma of spicy hop notes, sweet cereal grains, light lemon, earthy and herbal. Flavor of ripe banana, Cheerios, light citrus and some spicy hop notes. Too much banana for a lager let alone a Pilsner.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 A: Golden yellow body. Thin cap with moderate lacing.
S: Bright floral hops dominate. Slightly grainy. Faint bready malts.
T: Disappointing after the promising nose. The floral hops were overwhelmed by the bready malts which rapidly escalated in prominence.
M: Slightly chewy. Nicely carbonated. Clean finish.
O: The bready characteristics impaired my overall enjoyment. Perhaps going for 9% was a bit too ambitious on the part of the brewers. (review from 2009)

Dull golden semi-hazy yellow pour with ring of offwhite head is not. Sweet floral hop profile is a little fruity almost. Somewhat spicy and buttercream. Soft malt character. Decent for the style I suppose, but nothing stellar. Spicy finish.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold pour with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sharp and citrusy with a good amount of sweet malts. Flavor is incredibly sweet and malty at the start with a warming middle of tons of malts, citrus, and a light floral hop taste. Finishes bitter and peppery.
