COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden in color with a dry hop floral aroma and intense hop bitterness supported by a big malty backbone which culminates into a hedonistic mouthfeel. Yee haw!

Tap. Cloudy pale amber/gold. Slightly sour grassy aroma. Hides its alcohol content dangerously well. A little heavy as a pilsner. Tasty, though.

Temptation (208) - - JUN 17, 2013
Hazy amber, pale color with white and fluffy head, always present. Complex aromas and tastes, hoppied but well balanced with a deep malt character. The overall is great, medium bodied and sometimes intriguing. Amazing likened.

pootzboy (1572) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2013
On tap @the Bent Elbow – puts a hazed light gold beer in the glass small cap is tenacious and lasts. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is unique with earthy tones mixing with big bready malts and some (almost) Belgian yeast-like funk, floral hopping. Rich luxurious mouth feel. Verging on heavy bodied but still light enough to have a few. Flavour is dominated by a malty-earthy tone…. near the finish you get herbal sharp hopping. Sturdy, satisfying very earthy-musty - one of the most unique beers I have ever tasted

Torrefacto (373) - SPAIN - JUN 11, 2013
Color ámbar pálido, con espuma blanca de cabeza corta pero duradera. Aromas de cereales, malta y pan. En boca comienza con un sabor maltoso suave y un final amargo ligeramente alcohólico, pero equilibrado. Aunque su textura es ligera y fresca, posee ese punto untuoso propio estas maltas. Muy buena.

750 ml ceramic bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly hazy pale golden amber color with a nice 2 finger fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a ton of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big apple, pear, bread, cracker, honey, floral, grass, pepper, pine, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of malt, yeast ester, and hop notes; with good strength. Taste of pear, apple, bread, cracker, pepper, floral, grass, pine, honey, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, bread, floral, grass, pepper, pine, honey, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of hop, malt, and yeast flavors; with a moderate malt backbone and no cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very crisp, smooth, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice imperial Pilsner style. All around nice balance of malt, hop, and yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottled. Pours pala golden with a small white head, that leaves a fair lacing. Aroma of bread, grain along with fruity and grassy notes Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and bitter with alcohol notes. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft CO2. An OK imperial pils. ★★★
