I canít believe how inexpensive this beer is for the topmost quality ! Wonderful hops with a finish that tapers off to expose its lager roots in an unobtrusive, clean manner.

Poured from a bottle thanks to lukaduke. Pours a hazy light yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is floral and citrusy. A lot of hoppy, citrusy bitterness. This beer is awesome!

Bottle thanks to Matt. Thanks for the hookup! Aroma of great apricot, reisling, grass and slight lemon. Pours amber with a medium foamy head. Taste is nice and hoppy with good citrus zest, grass and slight simcoe cat piss. Great malty lager finish. Very enjoyable!

Ahh... Lager. HUGE thanks to Edmund Edmonds for this bottle! Youíre awesome, bro! Pours a clear gold with a puffy white head. Nice aromas of citrus with some pine in there as well. Really fruity and clean. So clean. Very light malts, with a long, dry finish. Excellent.

Slightly hoppy, grassy smell. Pours burnt orange and very clear. White head that disappeared. Low-medium carbonation which I really enjoy. Easy drinker. Clean hoppy taste that doesnít over power and has just enough body to let the hops stand out cleanly. Nice IPL.

Bottle at home, acquired through trade - super pumped I finally got a chance to try this one. Pour is crystal clear orange with a huge white head and great lacing. Hoppy, citrusy, grassy aroma, with lighter notes of biscuit, straw, and dough. Taste is super clean, yet hoppy - grassy, sweet grapefruits, orange peel - biscuity, lightly malty, a touch of caramel sweetness and a hint of bitterness on the backend. Medium mouthfeeel with high carbonation. Nice pils.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from trevdawg...thanks Evan! - So I love pilsener but donít really care for imperial pilsener. Hmm...here goes! Pours with a huge foamy head atop a clear light amber body. Big herbal and fruity hops on the nose, a bit of pine, and some dank garlic hops. Love the variety here. Sweet boozy malt underneath ruins things a bit for me. Same taste, though the finish is pretty sharp and boozy. Slick and thin-bodied. This was decent, but Iíve said it before and Iíll say it again--why imperialize pilsener?

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottles received today from Allen! Thanks! Pours a clear golden color with a fingers worth of white head. Itís so translucent, I can watch the Blackhawks game on the TV through it. Nose is a balance of sticky, resinous hops and lager yeast. The taste starts out toasty and crisp and finishes with a healthy dose of bitter pine. Mouthfeel is light and crisp with only a light lingering bitterness. It is incredibly drinkable and very balanced. Probably my favorite offering from Jackís Abby so far of the 8 or 9 Iíve had. The gold standard for hoppy lagers as far as Im concerned.

Pours a clear, light golden color with an impressive white head. Speaking of impressive, the nose on this lager is a big surprise. Grapefruit and pine a plenty. A nice medium-bodied mouthfeel that has adequate carbonation and dryness at the finish paves the way for grapefruit, pine, and floral flavors make this extremely drinkable lager very tasty.
