4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours crystal golden with a nice fluffy white two finger head. The aroma is kind of grainy, but citrusy, moderate hops, lemon rind. The taste is crisp and refreshing, citrusy, lemon. Body is medium and carbonation is medium high. I really liked it, one of the best Pilsners I have had.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
12 oz bottle from the 2012 variety pack bought from work. Pours clear golden with a medium collapsing white head. Aroma is bready, grainy, citrusy hoppy, sour berries. Taste is biscuity, lightly sweet with faint bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy, carbonation is fine. Smooth and crisp. This is absolutely delicious. One thing I don’t get--how is a beer with only 5.6% ABV considered "imperial"?

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled on 8/17/2012. This Imperial Pilsner pours a orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and sweet with some orange and orange peel, touch of bread as well. A medium bodied Imperial Pils. The malts are bready, fruity and sweet. The hops are spicy and herbal. Nice carbonation. Big full round carbonation. Very nice beer. Mouthfeel is very full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is by far my favorite of the 2012 beer camp sampler. Aroma is full of citrusy hops. Very little head. Taste is of hops, but not over poweringly bitter. Pilsnery malt shines through in balance with the bitterness. Very refreshing. Very nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a opaque golden colour. Nice white head, quickly dissipating. Great fruity flavour, a nice crusty bready flavour on the backburners. Good carbonation. Overall a good pilsner, a little fruity for the style, reminds me more of an IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Beer Camp mix pack. Pours a clear gold with rocky, very frothy head. Nose holds spicy hops, touches of sourdough bread, rye, and some nice grassy bite. Flavor is much of the same, with interesting grainy dig to the flavor, more peppercorn and touches of hibiscus. Smooth, drinkable, pretty tasty.
