3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. This poured a hazy light orange with a long lasting foamy white head and a lot of lacing. Attractive. The nose is light malt with a hoppy citrus aroma. Medium in body and smooth in mouthfeel. Flavor is tasty, with some cirrus and flowers. Some light bitterness in the finish. A very drinking brew, and you do not know it is an imperial as the alcohol is well hidden.

Bottle from LtDan. Thanks! Hazy orange with a thick white head. Nose is nice and surprisingly dry with fresh saaz, honey, some sweeter malts as it warms. Flavor is sweeter, some chalky notes, saaz, grassy and sweet finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the Beachwood BBQ - Seal Beach, CA. Soapy pilsner malt aroma, thick with sugars and yeast. Pours a coppery dark golden, clearish with minimal whitish head. Flavors of not-crisp pilsner malt sugars, lots of malt creaminess and some distant hops. Ragingly and punishingly sweet. Just too much. I want bright fresh crispness out of this, with nice bright hoppiness, but it just isn’t there. Soapy in the finish.

I had this on tap at Pizza Port San Clemente
I thought that this was a very nicely done beer. Good maltiness balanced with grassy hops.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle from BevMo. Pours a crystal clear deep gold with a nice frothy 2 finger thick white head, some sheeted lacing was left on the glass. Light flesh fruits in the nose followed by some lightly roasted malts with a kind of lemon grass like finish. Damn tasty and very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from BevMo. Clear dark golden in color. Somewhat grassy nose with a little bit of sweetness. Sweat and grassy flavors. Decent hoppiness. Pretty interesting. Pretty much tastes like I would think an impy pilsner would taste. Everything is pretty much taken and ramped up.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
well.... sorry distracted by crazy stories.... Poured with a nice head that pretty much lasts the whole bottle (bomber) and lots of lace. Color is a clear golden amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is malt, hop, dry leather, a little pine. Flavor is like aroma with great carbonation. Finish is like flavor and has medium length.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nearly golden slightly orange color w/ a small white head and some light soapy lacing. Avg Pal. The flavor is lightly doughy w/ a nice slightly bitter clean citrus & floral hop finish. Some nice sweetness both caramels and fruits the bread like tone is subtle but nice. The aroma is similar definite dry hoppy hints of some light floral pieces, with a light touch of sweet breads. Very easy to drink, and easily the best "pilsner" I’ve tasted.
