I split this beer with my dad. My pour (first) was clear and bland and just overall very similar to a macro lager. His was cloudy, had some hop bite and grassiness, but not much more than mine. Neither tasted very "imperial" nor did anything to wake me up from my boredom. Very disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice pilsener. Aroma was decent. A disticnt beer smell with a nice hoppy addition. Pour was a murky gold with a one finger white head. Taste was just like a pilsener should be. Tasty and hoppy with just a hint of light malt. Nice carbonation and easy to drink. Makes me wish I was taking a break from cutting the grass.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours deep golden in color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is herbal grassy hops over top of bready biscuity malts. The flavor has a mild sweetness, biscuits, a hint of fruit, and some straw. The body is light medium, the finish is a touch on the dry side. This is certainly not my style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of Juart. Pours a clear golden orange color. Small fizzy white head. A sweet cotton candy nose with some caramel and just a hint of bitterness. A pretty malty deep caramel flavor lacking in a lot of tradition pils characteristics. A bit of the bitterness, but with a floral / pine hop as well. A decent body with moderate thickness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bomber from the Deep Creek Haul. Shared with Naka. Pours a light coppery yellow with a white head that dissipates quickly. Nose is caramel and chocolate with some clean hop hints. Taste is of caramel, toffee and a touch of chocolate with a mild hop crispness at the end. Not very Pilsner-ie. Not a bad beer. Body is decent. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 22oz Bottle. Mostly transparent, honey golden colored pour with a thick layer of fizzy white head. Uniquely satisfying floral-citrus hop aromas, bringing forth notes of key lime and clementine zest. A pleasant maltiness shows off some biscuit and caramel tones, but sadly, the specialty malts seem to shroud the cleanness of the pilsener malt a bit too much. Light bodied, sparkling mouthfeel with a cleansing hop freshness. Flavors of crusty bread, biscuit, and restrained caramel come out of a healthy malt base. Again, while the flavors are quite good, the pilsener malt characters remain a bit hidden. A pleasing orange blossom, gently citrus hop bitterness comes across cleanly in the finish, providing a satisfyingly fresh final smack.
