Rising carbonation bubbles in a medium yellow body, with soapy head. Good dirty blonde yeasty aroma.Citrus taste, good IBu, smooth, dry finish. I liked it as only a minority of saaz, despite fresh assertive carbonation,

Appearance: clear gold, frothy white head, bits of drippy lace
Aroma: big floral hop aroma with spicy notes, slightly sweet pale malt, touch of cereal grains
Flavor: sweet malt flavor, cereal, lots of balancing spicyness, floral hops, well placed bitterness leaves a long bitter finish
Overall: not super sweet like most imperial pilsners but rather a fuller and more rounded pilsner

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
"I dunno why they call this an imperial pilsner when itís only 5.6%, but by the 2nd or 3rd sip... I donít care. For a normal abv pils, itís very nice. A little on the crisp hoppy side, like I like em, with a backbone of bread, especially in the nose. The feel was a strongpoint as the beer did a little jig on the tongue."

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355mL. Pours a clear yellow, macro lager gold. Larger, dense, pillowy white head. Thick formation, great retention, webby to soapy lacing. Nose is sweeter grain, some funky sour cherry, lemon drops, sweet juice box. Taste is very nice- small alcohol, some coconut oil, lighter mango juice box, sharper sourdough cracker. Palate is super soft, relaxed, thicker, oily. Finish is clean, sweeter, some coconut dessert. Wow.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, from the 2012 beer camp mix pack. Thin fizzy white head, some bubbles on the side of the glass. No lace. Clear golden color. Bigger body for a pils, but not quite an "imperial". More crisp carbonation, dry finish. Bready, good spicy and lemon-citrus hops. Some bitterness. Grainy aroma. Light spicy hop aftertaste. Seeing the celery that another rater pointed out. Enjoyable, but Iím a bit disappointed, after the raves Iíve been hearing about this.
