3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I was surprised by this beer. I’m not a pilsner guy, but this was highly recommended. From the tap. Pours golden with a dry hopped (cascade?) nose. Thin mouthfeel. Starts like a pilsner, finishes like an IPA, with a hoppy finish that is uncharacteristic of a pilsner but is necessary because of the ABV. I really enjoyed this brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (750ml): First I want to say the bottle is very nice, ceramic I think. Pours a most clear golden with a nice white head. This is not your average pilsner, not light , but medium bodied Some fruitiness and malts with a slight bitterness. Nice.

Pours a clear gold, with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, and hops, with a bit of sweetness. Taste is rich and full, a little bitter, with a rich palate. Smooth and drinkable. This one is a bit different than many. Thumbs up!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pros clear golden with a white head. Tastes as the name suggests, like a pilsener but double. Extra malt and extra sweetness comes through. Moreso than the additional hops. Slightly fruity aroma, malt driven flavour and a crisp finish. Excellent, particularly coming from someone not fond of pilseners

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pilsener.
The appearance was a decent looking hazy orange to light brown color with a nice transparency running about it. It was definitely light enough to see the carbonation rising at a moderate pace. There was a two finger white foamy head that dissipated about a minute and left a nice spider web lacing sticking finely to the sides of the glass.
The smell had a nice typical light spiciness (from an Imperial Pilsener) with a decent bitter to sweet hoppy to malty complexity.
The taste followed the aroma almost exactly and it had a nice spicy to sweet to bitter aftertaste and a dry finish.
On the palate, it sat about a light to medium. Still, it shows just enough sessionability and has a nice carbonation running about it.
Overall, in my opinion, this was a mighty fine Imperial Pilsner well worthy of having again and well worthy of having with its respected food.

One of those ceramic bottles from notes. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor has floral and fruity hops, mild spices, citrus and tropical notes, pale bready malt, grass. More flavor and character than I would have expected.

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden light amber with lasting sudsy head. Aroma is light but intensely hoppy. Corn and malt also present. Flavor is accentuated by aggressive carbonation, but overall thin.
