12er from the beer camp. Pours clear straw, thin white head. Slight sweet aroma, taste is sweet pilsener, finish is clean. At 5.6% not sure this could be called "Imperial" it’s more a pilsner. A nice pilsener.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the sampler. Probably my favorite of the four. Clear golden pour with a fluffy white head. Nice grainy, malty aroma with notes of grassy hops. Lightly sweet but balanced with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied, light fizzy mouthfeel. Quite good.
