Really good taste. Nice body. Not sure if I would call it an Imp. Pilsener, but is that even a style or not one could debate. Great beer!

One of a large number of samples I had at the Extreme Beer Fest in Boston 3/21/32014. Huge hop bitterness aroma and flavor, malt? maybe.

Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a huge long lasting fluffy white head. Spicy earthy bready citrus aromas mix wonderfully within my nostrils. The flavor provides a bit more hop bite than the aroma suggested. Spicy earthy and citrus provide a nice backdrop for the light bready malt that comes in the flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet spicy mouthfeel. Huge hoppiness for a lager and damn it really works for me. Great spicy hoppy beer, I wish they would distribute to NH!

A difficult style it is, but this one comes close to truly delivering. Better body than usual lets the hops come to their right. Nice and crisp too.

12 oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a lightly cloudy golden orange colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma has big tropical fruit and citrusy hop notes with some spicy resin and a bit of caramel. Flavour has grapefruit, mango, lychee and pineapple with some resinous notes and a solid sweet maltiness. Finishes a little dry. Impressive.

Oh yeah, that one was special. It was so hoppish and mild and drinkable and nice. A nice balanced piwo with a big body containing some fruits, some hay, a bit bread and a big alcohol towards the end. Good looking, good tasting = thumbs up.
