2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy at 5am during the Canada vs. Sweden gold medal hockey game. Hazy straw colour with an average white head that leaves lace early on. Grainy and very very dusty, flint and old dry wood. A bit odd and not very appealing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden colour whit a small creamy white head. Aroma is noble hops(my guess would be sazz), grassy and sweet cereal graininess. Flavour is a mild noble hop bitterness that mixes well with some soft alcohol, sweet cereal maltiness, and grass. Really well balanced Ipils.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle from Sherbrooke Liquor Store via Ryan (thanks!), served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear deep golden with a decent white head.
Aroma: Richly dank, grassy, peppery, leafy, lots of bready malt, boiled cereals, tons of dank/resinous hops aroma, nice.
Palate: Medium+ body, fine effervescence.
Flav.: More dank/resinous/peppery/grassy hops, a leafy tea note, nice bready/biscuit malt, wet hay, a bit of an odd honey? note, mostly nice; dry with good bitterness and a long, slightly eucalyptus, grassy/peppery hop finish, lasting bitterness.
Pretty good for the style.

Bottle - Grains, sweet malts and a bit of funk. Pale gold with a thin head. Strong grains, bitterness and a long finish with a bit of booze. A little one sided on grain.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (355 ml). From dresden, thanks! Clear pale yellow/golden with a small spotty white head and little lacing. Aroma of cereals, grass, grains and notes of sweetness. Taste is sweet with cereals, grass, honey, nuts, alcohol and light bitterness. Weird mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Sticky. Get better as it warmth, but still subpar for the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a solid high alcohol lager. The pour is a bright gold with a big finger or two of dazzling white. Sweet grainy and cereal malts with a hint of fruit and grassy, herbal hops; Saaz if i’m not mistaken. Sweet grainy flavour with a hint of citrus and grassy flavours. Overall a nice boozy beer

Thanks, dresden. Nice beer for the style. Pale yellow body, white head. Sweet bready, nutty aroma. Touch of bitterness in the flavour, sweet malts, quite a lot of flavour here. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear golden, thin white head from my pour. Aroma is pilsner hops - grass, herbs, flowers. Mouth is similarly hop heavy, moving towards a more full-bodied, cereal malt feel. Bitterness builds towards quite a puckery finish. Refreshing, but I’m not sure it gains anything from being "imperialized" beyond more alcohol (which is well hidden, btw).
