COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The mellow malt in this Imperial Pilsner is married with a clean sharp bitterness from a blend of four hop varieties. Crisp and refreshing with a touch of delicate noble hops to linger on the palette.

Dervock (404) - Emu plains, - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle - pours pale gold with a big white head. Aroma is skunky with some cereal malt. Some sweet need up front and a very mild dry finish, not much to it. Mouthfeel is thin to medium.

Pour is magnificent, lightly hazy amber with crisp white head. Aroma is slightly carboard and muddled fruits. Flavour is a big hit of grapefruit and big bitter finish, it reminds me of a Leffe Blonde for some reason, there is a bit of alcohol heat at the finish.

Maris (914) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2014
From a 500ml bottle on 30/3/2014 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours a slightly cloudy light golden with a big white head. The aroma is grassy with a touch of fruity hops. The taste brings you bready malt and lots of citrus fruit, particularly grapefruit. The lingering bitterness ends up prevailing against the sweet fruitiness which starts up front. Actually pretty good, with decent amount of character.

kiwianer (3315) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 15, 2014
The head is ok, body blond. It smells malty, bit hoppy, creamy, bitter. The taste is hoppy-bitter, stale, bit metal, bit malty. Not my taste...

Viter (27) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 25, 2014
(Bottle) Average to below average beer. Golden colour white head that dissapear pretty quickly. Malt, fruit and cumin in the aroma. Sweet and fruity taste with very light bitter background. Week bitter finish with hint of the alcohol warmth. Medium body and high carbonation. There are some hints of real imperial pilsner, but not enough for me.

Bottle. Pours light straw colour. Smooth mouthfeel with malt and surprising hop presence. Light and enjoyable, but not overly interesting.
