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.

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.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 22, 2010
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 isnít there. Soapy in the finish.

From a bottle poured a light amber color with a small amount of head. Sweet malty flavor with a quick 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.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 5, 2010
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.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - SEP 5, 2010
22oz bottle. Rating #21. Dark gold and clear as can be with a nice moderate lacing white head. Light toast and a bit of caramel, very clean aroma, nice. Light grass and a soft sweetness, a bit more caramel, pretty good. (1392)

mjg74 (2834) - Salem, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2010
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.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 5, 2010
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" Iíve tasted.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Tasted from a bomber bottle purchased at Beverages 4 Less. Pours clear light orange with an average white head that leaves a solid collar of lace after a slow recession. The nose is interesting, starting with a pretty straight-forward hops and pilsner malt, but there is also an underlying sort of plastic aroma that I also get off of some single malt scotches. The flavor has some sweetness, but is dominated by the kind of hay-like pilsner flavor and some hoppiness to round everything out. The body is medium with average carbonation and a medium hops and malt finish.
