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!

Ecco questa è la mia imperial pilsner preferita! Davvero magnifica e soprattutto resa ancora più amara dalla sconfitta nella finale degli europei 2012! Aparte gli scherzi magnifica!!!

Wonderful cloudy amber color, soft light colored head that dissipated rather quickly. Strong hoppy flavor with citrus flavors. Mildy bitter aftertaste. All in all a fabulous pilsner. A little pricey but well worth it.

I bought a few bottles of this as an accompaniment for a sushi party I was hosting and I am thoroughly impressed by this beer. Pours cloudy. Definitely the favorite at the sushi party.

So its a lager not a pils? This was a great beer to end a lousy day. A light hop aroma, it looks really nice - a light yellow on the edges, dark in the middle. I definitely poured into the wrong typle of glass so there was almost no head but I don’t care. Lightly hoppy, with a fair amount of grit, it has a dry but not cottonmouth feeling throughout. Combined with the Uber-pils they make the two best pils I’ve had (far better than those Czechs).

A beautiful beer worthy of an Iron Chef. For a relatively strong beer, the flavor isn’t bitter at all, just a delicious beer. Highly recommended.

unclemattie (4034) - Georgia, USA - AUG 27, 2006
Light textured looking midyellow in color with a slight haze to it. Dry crisp aroma to it. Very refeshing bite to it. Light textured and very strong. Perfect balance for a light (strong)beer. The bottle is a keeper! I love the Iron Chef.

mastabass666 (277) - California, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Draft at Rogue Public House SF. Honey -golden pour, thin, lacy head. Lots of slow moving bubbles.Aroma- floral, hay, malt, hops. Taste- creamed corn, sweet malt, then flavor turns citrusy, dry grass, spices, pepper, bitter hops. Finishes creamy smooth and very bitter. Palate is phenomenal.

BOSSbrewer (1314) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Pours slightly hazy and yellowish to amber. Some head. Bready with aroma of fruity hops. Earthy. Medium bodied. I'm not a fan of the style but this was very nice.

Had this beer at a ’Beer Fest’, understand it is available in the bottle? Very hoppy, very robust, decent malt and hop floral nose.

Pours a hazy light orange colour. . Aroma is sweet, dried apricots, and some light alcohol notes. Flavor is sweet, golden raisins, candi sugar, spicy bitter saaz notes, and a wee bit of alcohol. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Very tasty, probably up there with the most full pilsners I've had, the only other one I can compare is New Holland Full Circle, but that one uses an ale yeast, the Morimoto has a lager yeast. Whatever super tasty brew, both of 'em.
