Smells and tastes dank. Very very dank. Like you’re drinking someone’s back yard or garden.

Clear gold with a white head. Dank! Smells and tastes of weed. Maybe some citrusy flavors hiding but wow...it tastes like weed.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: Murky, just pale of true gold with yellow edges; super soapy & foamy white head on top that leaves dripping wet lacing in its wake. Copious amounts of spruce in the aroma; nothing but pine & spruce tips. Dank, resinous pine needles. Perhaps a touch of biscuit malt sweetness in the very back-end? Then again, maybe not. Bludgeoning bitter spruce & pine ripping the moisture from your mouth with each sip. Liquid Christmas tree. Reminds me of tame gin, only more resinous & complete with enamel shredding bitterness. Solventy note evolves with warmth & it gets harder to drink. I understand why some people might enjoy this, but I’m not a fan of gin, spruce, or harshness to this degree. Not my speed.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 2-19-2011 (Bottle) This beer has a small white head that does not last very long, yellow body with fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is pine, spruce and earthy. The taste is bitter and a lot of spruce. The mouth feel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is too over-the-top spruce tasting for my liking. So much so, I barely was able to finish my pour of this beer. Next!

On tap at brewery. Aroma has nice notes of spruce with lots of classic pilsner cereal grains and hops. Pale yellow hue with white head that left little lace. Light bodied with average carbonation.

Sprucey as fuck. Not nearly as good as I had hoped. Would not get this beer again.

BEST IMPERIAL PILS EVER. Sorry for shouting. I did not mean to scare you. Smells piney. Or should I say sprucey? Taste is wonderful blend of bitter and sweet. Pours slighly darker than typical Pils. I think this may be a beer that does not categorize well, because it seemed more similar to a IIPA that an Imperial Pils to me. Sad I did not get my dad to bring back more.
