3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Medium golden colour with a lasting tight white head. Aroma is very hoppy, perfumey and grassy. Light biscuit malt pairs well with floral green grassy hops. Very drinkable, absolutely awesome for patio sunshine days. Not getting the imperial designation though-- is it meant to imply that they hopped the shit out of it?

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle pours clear deep gold with near white head of foam. The aroma offers up some cereal graininess and slivers of sugary malts and a bit of vague noble hops. The taste offers up a quick pulse of bitter floral hops and some spicy almost dank like hoppiness before fairly thick and sweet Pilsener like malts and malt graininess come to the surface. The hops pick up a layer of flavor hops into the finish. This has a great play between sweeter malt notes and more bitter hops. I didnít expect to even like this one and it turned out to be very tasty.

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."
