3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle, courtesy of Schutzenliesel. Pours a murky, orange-grapefruit color; off-white head with patchy, mixed-bubbled lacing. Pleasant yeast character, mineral bitterness, and complex, salty maltiness in the aroma; esters, yellow fruits, and some herbal notes. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: lots of lively citrus, esters, complex yeast, and herbal character; very interesting, intricate chewy rye and fluffy maltiness; very soft feel in the mouth; reasonably tasty stuff; I haven’t had this young, but tastes pretty good from an imperial pils with a load of age behind it. Medium finish: breadiness, toasty malts, and rye.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle shared by Bockyhorsey - Pours a hazy golden color with a 3/4 finger thick white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is light grain (corn) and faint citrus. Flavor is lightly sweetened malt and light citrus. Medium body. This beer was quite nice for a lager almost 2 years old. Would have been nice to try it when released. Thanks for bringing this one Bill. A good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of Dorwart. Aroma had a soapy oror along with pale fruity there also on the nose. Hazy gold body with white head. Flavor had a spicey and lemon citrus along with some light to medium bitterness. Mellow beer and smooth on the palate. Decent beer but may be showing its age and losing some zip but what do I know it was good

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to trade with robertsreality. Hazy, straw yellow body with big, frothy white head (which was better to look at than it was to inhale up my nose). Kinda surprised this is holding up so well. Light floral hop left in both the aroma and flavor. Spicy, peppery malt in the aroma. Pretty thick mouthfeel with a nice dry finish. Flavor mostly of spicy, rye malts. Heavyweight really didn’t make a bad brew, did they?

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Milky straw in color, very thick and solid looking.   Large fluffy white head, very sticky lacing.   This looks very
big, and quite different for a Pilsner.   Yeasty nose, nearly bready, very slight dull floral aspect.   Has a slight basement funk,
musty.   Heavy malt sweetness up front, nearly bready, slight floral and caramel notes.   This is one big Pils.   I guess the
style is European Strong Lager... which makes more sense.   7.3% for a Pilsner doesn’t make sense.   Big in body, mouthfeel is
moderate to full.   Soft hop bitterness, very soft.   Finishes very clean.   Lingering caramel like maltiness.   Pretty
enjoyable this one is.   Thanks Paul for yet another Heavyweight!
