MarkSachon (937) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Consumed from the bottle as part of a sampler case. Measures up to the name "Imperial" and is a worthy companion to Penn’s excellent Kaiser Pils. Hops are well balanced with a clean and fresh taste.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2011
As their 25th Anniversary bottle. Light yellow, white cover. Aroma is grassy hops, toast, alcohol. Taste is the same profile, unfortunately a bit too strong, the Kaiser Pils is much better of course.

On tap at Bocktown. Light floral hop aroma with mild pale malt sweetness, clean nose. Medium dark golden yellow clear, with foamy-creamy white lacing head. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Starts and stays fairly dry with a bit of carbonic bite and big hop bitterness. Decent hop flavor. Big bitter finish and lasting bitter after.

bth122 (1498) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Poured a lighter golden color. Medium head, good retention. Aroma of fresh grain malts, some citrus hops in there as well. Lite sweetness with a med-light bitterness. Med-light body. Slick texture, slightly creamy. Tastes like a typical pilsner, has a pleasant bitter finish. At first I couldnt taste the alcohol, then it comes through later on.

Bomber courtesy of Secret Santa, pours a clear pale golden with a medium white head. Aroma has a musky wheat sweetness, baby powder, grain, and malt. Taste has a malty sweetness, hop spice, grain, and citrus. Not bad, nice flavors in the taste.
