4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rich orange topped off with a thick head. There’s a strong resin on the nose followed by light citrus ,mint, and apparent alcohol. The hoppy resin proceeds into the pallet and further accented by the clean malt profile. That being said, the hops really shine (as well as the noticeable but not unwelcome booze). Overall, this is a exactly what an imperial pilsner is expected to taste like.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting. Hoppy for a pilsner. Quite hoppy aroma but with characteristic pilsnery smell. Taste is bitter pilsner but hoppy then a bit more fruity hop flavor before a dry finish. Leaves a nice taste. Hard to describe really. Very good for a pilsner, but...still a pilsner.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a brilliant hazy copper with a thick head that lasts a long time; lots of lacing. Interesting almost bready toasty malt aroma. Heavy sweet malt presence in the flavor balanced by mild earthy hoppiness. Some light citrus notes in the background. Has a very dry finish characteristic of a pilsner. I’d say that this is a fantastic beer and I had no idea a lager could be this flavorful. Highly recommended.

Bottle. Best before 16/10/16. Pours a slightly hazy orange colour with a thin white head. Aroma is light marmalade, a little bread. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. A little caramel, marmalade, lemon zest, grapefruit, warming booze. Despite the sweeter notes it's still fairly crisp and fresh. Nice balance - tasty.

Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, örter, jäst och brunt socker. Riktigt frisk och fyllig, fin fruktighet och med en tydlig beska som avslutning. Riktig fin imperial pilsner.
