Bottle from QClub at home. Clear deep golden pour. Fresh hoppy aroma with a pilsner-y smell. Crisp hoppy flavor - bit piney. Definite lager taste. Very good for an easy-drinking lager.

Excelente cerveja. Nos EUA um custo beneficio fantástico. Saborosissima com amargor equilibrado. Poderia ter uma espuma mais densa.

Fruity aroma, hop, grass, caramel and malt. White lacing galore. Clear yellow-gold color. Thin body and fairly dry. Actually, it is quite dry. Not boozy at all. Strong lager? W

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 22, 2014 Bottle pour. Amber lager color in glass. Solid, soapy lacing. Nose is grassy hops, dough, and some funk. Blindfolded, I?d say an IPA. Taste is much more pils, but on the bitter end. Good malt profile too. Overall, a decent attempt.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 fl oz bottle from CJ’s (Potsdam, NY), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear deep amber with a so-so light tan head.
Aroma: Lots of Munich/Vienna malt, nice resin/pine and grapefruit hops, a little bubble gum, pretty straight-forward.
Palate: Medium body, moderate+ carbonation.
Flav.: A bit less malt with a slightly harsh hop character, more herbal/floral, less pine/resin/grapefruit, still has a decent amount of Vienna/Munich malt; dry with pretty good bitterness and a fairly clean, quite hoppy finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
4/16/2014. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Not sure why this would be listed as an Imperial Pils at 5%. Maybe the IPL is India Pale Lager? In any regard, very tasty, well made, good hoppy flavors.
