Decent strong pilsner. Malty hop aroma that went a little floral. Light amber color with good foamy head. Nice up front hops presence with maltiness that reminded me this was a pilsner. Clean crisp palate. Alcohol was well hidden and didnít affect the overall taste. Good beer that I would pick over normal pilsners.

A good pilsner with a nice malt flavor and high hops content. A very big head with plenty of lace, this beer is close to an IPA in taste. The malt is straight forward in taste. Overall, a good beer, but a little too hoppy for the malt strength.

On draught at Hay Merchant. The beer pours a luminous orange-gold color with a medium off-white head that dissipates gradually. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, malt and spice. Medium-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, grainy malt and citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a floral hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

22oz bottle, Secret Santa 2013 Summer, as you amp up the pils category you are more prone to off flavors, and unclean fermentation this is no different while still a viable and drinkable beer, the finish had a punch of flavor that was slightly offputting for me. the people I shared it with didnt seem to mind as much.

Bomber Initial pour was clear dark gold with a fluffy lacy white head, The second pour had lots of floaties. Sweet caramel nose with a but of fruit and perfume. Full body, sweet taste of caramel, bread, There are enough hops to punch their way through all the residual sugar far a decent if somewhat grassy finish.

Bomber. Poured a murky amber color with a nice white top. Looked like a snow globe! Taste wasnít as appealing: too much caramel, sweet grains, earthy bitter finish. High carbonation, medium body.

Picked this up in the bottle from Goody Goody in Addison, TX. Sweet malty flavor with a nice hop punch, it would be a light IPA if there were such a thing.

Clean nose with grassyness. Great mouthfeel. Good hidden alc with sweet malt. I wish the hops stood up more. Worth a try.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very mild aroma for such a hoppy pilsner...consistent but not wowing.
Great amber appearance with amazing head retention.
Taste was hoppy with ample caramel malt. Roast provides a toffee aftertaste.
Palette is consistent with an imperial pilsner, but compare to My Antonia for example it's very heavy and lacks crisp feeling.
Imperial pilsners are not a frequent in the craft beer store...if you like the more refined pilsners (Heineken on steroids) this is a pleasant beer.

Little too sweet for my tastes. Nice hop presence, but lots of malts. Kind of like a light IPA, and not a very good one at that.
