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!

Poured this into a snifter. Slightly hazy deep golden color with a white head that went away pretty quickly. Very nice aroma of grassy hops and grains. Excellent bitter hoppy flavor, and a smooth mouthfeel. Best Imperial Pilsner Iíve had, and one of my favorite Rogues.

One strange brew, this pours a cloudy, headless murky pale gold. Aroma is nice and malty with a sweetness and some floral hop. Flavor is initial malt and some honey up front (nice), but quickly hits with a bitter/astringent bite mid-sip that lasts through the finish and leaves the throat dry.

Hazy golden amber pour with small off white head. Aroma of malts, hops, caramel, slightly floral and grains. Taste of malts, hops, slight caramel, grains and slight citrus. Full bodied, lower carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, crisp hop finish. A little boozy up front but a delicious beer!

Itís hard to rate this beer a 9 or 10 overall, based on pilsners not having much aroma and appearance. With that said, this is probably a very high 8....say an 8.8. One of the most crisp beers that Iíve had. Seems pretty light, but has a nice alcohol content and will fill you up. You can really taste the malt in this one. Has a pale yellow appearance, with a very light white head. I try not to spend this kind of money too often for high priced beers, but this is worth the price....well, almost. A luxury beer for sure.

Look, I'm all about ales, lager just ain't my thing. That might be why this is getting a higher rating than usual, I will admit. Hoppy and thick through the nose; a clean, yet golden haze on sight. The head was thick initially but faded too quickly (bottle poured), yet whilst there it held a lovely citrus, hinting on something sweet, like a light caramel. The palate carried those hops through and this is where the malt character drove its way home. "Hedonistic"** is how those Rogues described it, but the malt had a tingle and bite that draws away from the pleasure (hey, don't get me wrong, I love a tough IBU to chew through), but it had interest and tang and a freshness that made this "Aleman" turn his head and say "hot damn". It still had a lot of lager essentials (that Yeastie flavour, that bites and kicks back, but it just turned its nose to all the bad, and gave a good nod to what I hope is a new world of the lighter, simpler style). Best Lager I've had, by far. How "true to form" it is... I can't say. But if you're of my opinion, and steer clear of Lagers, find this. Thank the Rogue guys later. **Hedonism: maximization of pleasure over pain.
