anders37 (23376) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2009
Draft @ Lost Coast. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. Has a malty grainy and slightly hoppy aroma. Sweetish malty grainy hoppy flavor. Has a sweetish grainy finish with a long bitter aftertaste.

Light bronze colour. Fruity aroma - pear mostly. Fairly crisp, with light diacetyl. Fairly dry towards the finish, with some biscuity, grainy notes. A hit or miss style - this misses for me, taking me nowhere.

marcus (9235) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 7, 2007
On tap at Vino’s in Roseville, CA. I really don’t like pilsners, but this one was actually pretty good. The taste starts off a bit sweet, then turns bitter at the finish. The body is surprisingly strong and malty for this type of beer.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café: Golden in color, slightly fiery, moderate frothy off-white head, fairly sticky lacing, strong carbonation.   Mealy nose, certainly malty, but also a fairly strong hop aspect.   Even a slight floral hint.   Seems decent enough.   Forwardly hoppy, a little bit of heat, decent malt background.   Not as flavorful as the nose suggested but still quite good.   Fairly clean.   This certainly feels like an Imperial Pilsner.   More hops than most.   Body and mouthfeel are full to moderate.   Warming finish.   I enjoyed this one even if it was a little abrasive.   Will probably mellow with time.

Beerman6686 (6390) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2009
This poured a hazy yellow color with a big fluffy white head. Aroma was sweet sdweet wheaty malts with hints of alcohol as well. Flavor was sweet with a flash of some hoppy bitterness and a long boozy aftertaste. This should not taste this strong at only 7.5

Suttree (6105) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Cloudy orange, thin white head. Smells kind of sweet and sour. Its heavy - overly so, actually - and sweet at first, then a nice bitter finish. On tap, Barley’s Aheville.

hayduke (4948) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 25, 2008
At the brewpub, this was a cloudy orange, with small white pub head and light lacing. Nose of malts and citrus hops. Rich mouttfeel. Flavor is mostly citrus and pine hops, and the finish is nicely bitter. Hides the alcohol well. Easy drinking for such a high alcohol beer.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 28, 2008
On tap at Capone’s. Pours a hazy golden orange with a medium creamy/bubbly white head that left some lacing. Aroma of sweet almost candy like maltiness, citrus, floral and lightly spicy hop notes and honey nut cheerios. Flavor of spicy, citrusy notes. Noble hops, lots of malty sweetness, but finishes dry. Hop bitterness is there, light alcohol and grainy notes. Iced tea flavor as it warmed up.
