Clear golden with a tiny off white head. Aroma had quite a few grassy hops, pale malt and hints of caramel. Flavour had loads of grassy hops, pale malts, caramel and a solid bitternes towards the end. Dry and clean. Lovely take on the style.

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" Ive tasted.

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.

Bottle from bhensonb. Pours cloudy golden with a thick off-white head and a floral aroma. There is a hearty roasted malt flavor with some toffee and a dry bitter finish. Very tasty.

Sammy (11180) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2012
fresh bottle from Texas Liquor (in Carsblad, Cal.) Very easy to drink hoppy beer. An understated bitterness that was most pleasant during a long luncheon. Mild hoppy aromas. Some citrus, medium mouthfeel, and one-quarter inch of retained head on cloudy lightly orange body. Satisfying, not heavy, sure not a double IPA and cannot be held up to that sort of hop assault.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2010 650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a translucent copper color with a big white fluffy head that has good retention and some lacing. The aroma is mild and indistinct with grains, yeast and some saaz hops. The flavor features biscuit, dough, yeast, nutty hops and mildly funky hops. The palate is a bit light but builds to a malty conclusion. The finish is short and dry. Overall: I find this pils a very refreshing choice. Much more like a good English biter than a pils--whatever the hell this it was the right beer at the right time.

ManvsCity (183) - Redmond, Washington, USA - AUG 5, 2010
The easiest to drink bomber Ive ever consumed. Pour is honey amber in color, decent white head, zero lacing. Aroma of bread and maybe faint cloth band aids with apricot. Light on the tongue, but more rich with nuts, honey, melon, and pronounced resinous hops. Very slight dryness to the finish, but fades quickly. Really nice on a hot summer evening.

Sampled on 8/20/2010. This Imperial Pilsner pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head with nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and sweet, graint and grassy. A medium to full bodied imperial pilsner. The malts are fruity and sweet, a touch cereal and grainy. The hops are herbal and earthy, with a touch of spiciness. Nice balance. Decent carbonation. A touch sweet perhaps, and would like it to be a little spicier. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

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.

Nice, but confusing. Light amber with hops on the nose. Medium bodied and it drinks like a sweet malty English ale or a bock. Great finish. Id never guess a Pilsner if served blind.
