3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Clear yellow lager with a small, creamy, off-white head. As it warms, the aroma displays grainy and medicinal characteristics... and not much more. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Toffee and honey sweetness up front; a nice European hop bite on the backside. The lengthy finish starts off sweet, but ends up a touch bitter and fairly dry. Thanks to otakuden for providing the bottle!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured slightly cloudy, milky golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up more honey than bready malts, with a deeper level of floral notes and rubbing alcohol.. wet grains on the back.. not in the least bit enticing. The flavor had honey and the aforementioned grains at the core, with prickly citrus and floral notes around.. concentrated lemon juice and boozy heat over tacky malts on the finish. Heavier-bodied with lower-than-expected carbonation.. too hot with too few interesting ingredients.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12-oz bottle from the Orland Park, IL, Binny’s: Usually when I rate one of these "Imperial" lagers, typically a Pilsener, I gripe about the need for a new style on the site, since they are obviously not European Strong Lagers. This one, however, I would have believed to be a mocne (not necessarily a bad thing) had I not poured it from the bottle myself. It pours a deep golden body with a quickly dying white head. The aroma is sweet grainy malt with some alcohol and a touch of lemon zest. Thick mouthfeel. The flavor has grainy malt, alcohol, and a dirty citric bitterness followed by a touch of zinc. Make mine Mocne!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up a four pack from Discount Liquors in Waukesha, Wisconsin. From a 12-oz bottle pours a clear golden amber colored brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin white ring and some bubble rings on the top. Aroma of golden grain malt, some floral hops, a touch of bubble gum, and powdered sugar. Taste is medium to full bodied, some carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, some bubble gum, grassy and floral hops and some alcohol. Finish has an alcohol bite and some sharp bitterness, then a semi-sweet aftertaste flavor. Could use a little less alcohol to smooth out the flavor.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is dark gold colored with a lightly yellowish khaki head. Lots of fast moving bubbles indicate a highly carbonated brew. Sweet malty nose with lots of raw citrus. There is also some bit of hay in the background. This drinks fairly easy for the abv, at first anyway. Then, as you take your first swallow the alcohol hits you in the face. There is some old bread crust and a little bit of pine bark. There is also some bit of grapefruit rind to go with the woody character. Decent and better than most so called Imperial Pilsners I have tried, but you gotta get past the alcohol.
