Prolly biassed a bit cause this is most likely my favourite beer label of all time, and because this was the precursor to me getting on the pilsner train these days after the long arduous Russian Imperial Stout Season (poor me). It’s nice to have a 7% Imperial Pilsner kicking around though. If only this were available in Ontario. Thankfully my dad brought a little shipment back from Christmas with grandpa. This could be my perfect summer beer. Hoppy, high ABV, but so freakin refreshing. More refreshing than Pilsner Urquell, which I love, but is by no means as refreshing. Light tasting with full intense flavour, and still decent chewiness for the palate. Aroma: grass, flowers, and honeysuckle salad. WTF?! Hey, whatevs; FEELS GOOD.

Bierdimpfe (349) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
Slightly hazy golden color with a good amount of activity. Almost creamy white 1 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with some strong legs. Pleasant floral aroma with biscuity caramel. Flavors of caramel, sweet grains, a little corn, lemon, floral and herbal spices. Bready and slightly grassy. More sweet than sour but still with a nice sharpness creating a good balance. Smooth almost creamy heavy body with moderate carbonation. Light finish of medium length, ending with crispy grassy noble spices and some sugary citrus/caramel feel. Overall a good craft offering nice flavors and a great thick body. Passable freshness being a little flat. Accessible being not overly boozy and well spiced. +1 for the pug ;)

plaugher (409) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours hazy golden/copper, light peripheral bubbly head, some retention and lacing. Grainy nose, grassy hops, touch of toffee? A bit of honey flavour. Crisp.

Grainy aroma and taste with slight mineral and dryness. Golden, lighter body than the alcohol suggests, good.

Metalchopz (3078) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2015
Purchased at NB Liquor on my trip to the east coast. Pours a hazy golden-amber colour with a creamy off-white cap, decent retention and some good lacing. Grainy nose with some caramel, so not too pils-like. The taste is where this comes out with the Euro grass hops. Covers the grain. Not sure about the Impy Pilsner style with the look and aromas, but a good brew nonetheless.

yourilevesque (1363) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2015
Dégustée en compagnie de Marco. La bière a le look parfait pour une impériale Pilsner: magnifique couleur dorée plutôt foncée et partiellement voilée, mousse généreuse et invitante. Tout cela commence très bien. Au nez les levures Pilsner caractéristiques de ce type de bière sont complètement éclipsées par d’étranges arômes beurrés et crémeux. C’est gras et lacté. Oh que cette odeur me déplaît. Du blé. Une toast beurrée sans levures ni houblons. En bouche, le liquide est lourd. Les saveurs me rappellent un miel d’une qualité discutable et un beurre qui aurait ranci. Tout sauf légère, cette bière se boit difficilement, et se mange tout aussi mal!

Imagine Jim Morrison on stage and girls swooning at his feet...imagine how that felt - For Jim, not the girl’s - feels good right? Now imagine that feeling in a beer, and you’ve Picaroons Feels Good Imperial Pilsner.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2015 Mouais. Troisième bière de Pickaroons que j’essaie. Pas diâb-diâb. Ça sent la mélasse. Ça goûte le vinaigre balsamique. Bon j’exagère. Mais disons que je ne la feel pas trop. Je ne fini même pas ma bouteille...

Wow! Diacetyl City with hints of vinegar. These guys need to clean up their act.
