Solid beer from Rahr. Amber pour with big lasting lacing. Nice palate. Malty plus good bitter hops. First of this style. Nice

At a tasting, thanks Beer and Beyond, pours whiskey color with a medium head, aroma of honey, caramel, toffee and butter, flavor of smoke, orange, some herbs, medium bitterness and nice sweetness, medium bodied.

DSG (5021) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 24, 2011
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Clear deep golden color. Somewhat resinous hops aroma with some slightly grainy malt. Flavor starts with caramelly sweetness and continues to a very bitter hoppy finish. Medium-bodied. OK.

22 oz. bottle from a buddy in Texas- thanks, Brian! Pours a somewhat hazy orange-gold color with a small eggshell white head. Notes of sweet crackers, toasted sugar, marshmallow, orange and lemon citrus, hay, biscuit, and a little earthiness. Not much in the way of hops to speak of. That’s all right, though, as I’ve had plenty in this style that are excessively grassy, boozy, and bitter. This is none of that- dry, malty, and toasty. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Not bad.

Fresh Fort Worth bottle. Wow that was pretty tasty and not dominated by alcohol. The hops seemed kinda green which was a twist but balanced well by malt.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2011
22oz bottle from Mora2000, thanks Bill! Pours a clear, orange-copper colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is pretty solid. Grassy and floral with some light citruses. The malts are real nice with a good amount of bread, toasted grain, and a touch of spiced caramel. Flavor is similar. Toasted grains, bready malts, and slightly spiced florals up front. A touch of caramel, a nice grass, and some biscuit before the grass grows nicely into the finish along with a slightly spiced citrus. Dry and moderately bitter with a spiced bread, floral, grassy finish before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium, rounded, very soft body with a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid beer. Nice malts with a pleasant bready, toasted grains and biscuit that is well balanced with grassy hops and florals. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

AWMiller (512) - Mansfield, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2011
This brew is just absolutely amazing! It poured up a beautiful, rich, dark amber-colored body that formed up a huge frothy head with amazing retention and lacing effects which lasted until the beer was gone! Aromas of caramel, sweet malts, citrus fruits (orange and maybe a bit of lemon), hops, and spices. There’s a nice hoppy hit up front followed by sweet malt for a mellowed, somewhat dry finish.

Dixonian (1558) - Plano, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2011
22oz bottle. Golden brew with a small amount of white head. Lots of bready malt aromas with some decent grassy hops. Flavor is lacking with some bitterness, grainy and earthy flavors. Better than most of Rahr’s offerings but still decent at best.

djd07 (2912) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2011
On tap at petrol station. Pours a clear orange copper with a medium frothy white head that leaves sticky lacing. The aroma is a faint corn malt and wheat. Thin mouhfeel with a dry wheat and yeast. Easy to drink with a nice dry finish. A good imperial pils from Rahr.

BMan1113VR (7786) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Bottle via a trade with blutt59. Pours with a notably viscous quality. Orange body, clear, with a small bone hued head. Aromas up front are hoppy: floral, earthy, a hint of citrus. Malt quality is bready, nutty, and biscuity. Light sulfur/lager yeast notes. Flavors are bready, biscuity, malty and bitter (I cannot tell if there is a malt astringency as well causing some of the bitterness). A bit of an herbal note. Sweet up front but dries out towards the finish. Surprisingly viscous body. Medium to light bubbles.
