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!

adnielsen (10312) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Tap @ Waldos KC. Somewhat hazy, golden yellow appearance with a fluffy white head. Moderately noble, floral hoppy, slightly grainy, slightly fruity, pale pils malty nose. Creamy, moderately fruity (almost like passionfruit), noble, floral hoppy, highly pale pils malty, lager flavor. Noble hoppy aftertaste. Pretty good.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - APR 10, 2007
Bottle (really nice one). Hazy yellow with a nice bubbly mostly lasting head. Malty bit sweet and fruity aroma, which also appear in the flavour along with more hops.

Maria (10198) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2007
Golden with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt and flower. The mouthfeel is oily like a barley wine. The flavour is NICE! Initially sweetish, but then comes the notes of malt, fresh bread, fruit, flower and a nice bitterness. The alcohol is neither seen nor heard, so to speak. Its a truly nice pilsner, impressing, in fact! 1860

shrubber85 (9646) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle. Sour peach/apple malt aroma. Hazy yellow amber with large off-white head and nice lacing. Apple juice, grass, and caramel malt flavor. Light pine hops finish. A very unique beer - extremely fruity for a lager.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 20, 2008
750 mL ceramic bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small, white head. Little carbonation. Great Lacing. This is extremely hoppy for a pilsner- almost like an IPA wannabe. Aroma is- Im not kidding- pasture land or cow manure. Very earthy and dirty. Taste is grass with some pepper in there. Reminds me vaguely of a good Czech Pilsner- much sweeter than a Czech variety. Finish is bitter and resiny. Disappointing to say the least especially for the price.

jercraigs (9154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2006 Draft @ Goodbar Hazy golden yellow, small white head. Grassy hops in the aroma. Fairly strong grass and European style hops in the flavour. Some notes of toasty pale malt. Average to medium palate. Decent, alcohol is deceptively restrained but becomes more noticeable as my PINT goes on. Served up on tap by an Ice Cube lookalike at Goodbar in Buffalo.

JoeMcPhee (9051) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2005
Very pale golden beer, thin white head. Gorgeous, perfumy, spicy and citrusy hop aroma. Orange blossom, zesty hop flavour. Soft creamy body. Flavour is hop dominated, spicy, perfumy with a sweet orange flavour coming out. Warming feeling, peppery alcohol mixes nicely with the spicy hopping. All pale malts keep the beer dryer than something like this might otherwise be. Dangerously drinkable as well. Sublime brew.

DocLock (8989) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2004
Pours dark straw (not copper) with a Brobdingnagian head and tons of lace. Hopcit aroma (as expected) with taste of malt, hopcit, and a slight tart apricotty finish. As it warmed the alcohol made itself known, and it acquired a slight harshness and a tad of astringency that I had to deduct slightly for. Great mouthfeel, and a great beer. Worth the price.

JorisPPattyn (8920) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2006
Draught Hazy golden-yellow beer; small white head, some lace. Hops, but less then Id thought (feared?). American, of course, some honey-ish malts. In the taste, the hops kick in slightly metallic and I get again some honey. Imagine a Bock without the bread taste and loads of hops. Medium bodied, grist slickness. If this is typical, Imperial pils is drier Bockbeer on steroids.
