3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on tap at Elizabeth Station, pours a cloudy blonde with a small white head. Aroma is pretty restrained, revealing grassy hops and grains. Flavour of grassy hops, very low malt intensity and some grains. Nice restrained hoppiness and dry on the palate. Very solid pils... but why is this called an "Imperial Pilsner" at 5.6%??

Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was lasting and produced excellent lacing. Good moderate to heavy complex hop and malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 2/20
It is an imperial pilsener... Don’t know why they feel the urge to brew these but the imperialization ruins what the style has going for it. This is one fo the better done ones though.
