3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy gold with basically no head. Aroma not super strong (though I’m suffering from a bit of congestion), but the lime and orange is noticeable, not grapefruit like most hoppy beers. Again, the flavor is citrus with out resorting to the grapefruit and peel flavor of strong pils or IPA’s. Has just a bit of that lemon peel bite on the back end, ending with the slightest hint of Brazil nut. I’m really not getting the malt that other reviews report for whatever reason. Surprisingly heavy feel for a pils or a lager, wading into brown ale territory. I’m not a huge fans of pilsner style beers, but this has enough stuff going on to make it interesting. Yea, this is good.

On tap. Pours a clear golden color with a small soapy white head. Mouthfeel is thin and comes across watery despite the carbonation. Hops are muted and somehwhat off balance. This one didn’t agree with me.

Getting more and more interesting. It was very nice and soft to drink. Not so cold and very nice shape.

Muddy orange. Nose is biscuits and some fruit. Tastes of overripe oranges, bready, biscuits, crackers, some hay, and nutty kind of. Chewy mouthfeel. Slightly hot.

3.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From tap pour. Small head. Cloudy, opaque gold appearance. Very hoppy for a Pilsner. Fantastic clean but biting taste. Claimed IBU of 35 on the beer menu at this bar seems low. I favor a high IBU beer and this seems to satisfy amazingly well. This is an awesome Pilsner for perhaps IPA fans.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Amber w thin head. Lovely floral aroma when first poured. Does not hang around long though. A touch bitter on the front then moving to a hint of tartness before mellowing to sweeter malt associated w the higher alcohol. Taste is floral malty w a hint of pine and softer lemony citrus notes at the end. Good beer.

Decent malty ale. Palate is a bit dry and spicy, but flavor is nice and relatively full, several malty classic flavors.

Definite summer beer. Fruity hoppy but balanced. Alcohol is very well hidden here. Nasty aftertaste. Feel like I ate an orange peel. Higher rating if the first half of this beer was as good as the second. Probably the alcohol talking there. Weak buzz after one of these.

(Bottle). Thanks to Sharon and Doyle. Nice golden-amber complexion with white head and modern carbonation. Interesting mix of Bock and Lager with hops. Sort of a confused flavor.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours medium orange with a thin off white head which fades to just a little lacing. Aroma is of toasted malts, citrus, pine, caramel, sweet malts, light floral hops, some light spicy hops, and some grassy hops. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium-full body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, semi dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a decently tasty, well balanced imperial pils that is a tad too sweet for my tastes.
