COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Neolithic humans evolved from nomadic hunters into a more settled agricultural society, changing life forever. The Ďfounderí crops they raised included wheat and barley. It is little surprise that the first examples of brewing appeared during this age. Brewers owe much to the epoch. Similarly, we thank our farmer friends of today for cultivating the ingredients the are responsible for the beers we now enjoy. Their laborious days spent ourdoors under the hot sun earn them respect, as well as a mark of distinction: the farmerís tan. Yes, the inevitable red and white hallmark of hard work.

22 oz Bomber-Clear yellow pour with a moderate white foamy head. Sweet, hoppy aroma. Flavors of floral hop, some grain/bread dough, & some citrus. Smooth & easy to drink, alcohol was well hidden. Enjoyable w/a hop bite on the finish.

Bottle, 22 oz, at Cardinal. It pours an unclear, golden body and a small, white head. The aroma is very piney and citrusy, leaving little room for the malts. Really pleasant, although a bit one dimensional. That goes for the flavour too. The ABV is well hidden, didnít expect it to weigh in at 9 percent. Itís a bit too herbal in the flavour, slightly grassy, but mostly citrusy and piney. A nice bitterness chimes in, lasting for a while. Full body, with a faint warmth. Soft carbonation. A pleasant beer, but Iíd rather choose a Belgian pale and strong one. 121022

Decent. The nose is grass and hay with some pine notes and little malt. The beer is golden with deep yellow highlights. Bitter with some sweetness. Smooth and fuller than the typical pale lager, but with some warming notes.

(bottle - 22 oz) Clear golden pour with a good amount of carbonation left for an older bottle. Mild bitter and malt aroma with a very light grassy note. Flavor is pretty decent, though a bit mild. Some light hop bitterness and alcohol at the front with a lightly bitter finish and aftertaste.

Bomber. Not sure how old this is but it seems OK. Light bitterness mixed with citrus and caramel. A heavy brew with a dry finish.

Keg at Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. A dark golden coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Rich hoppy aroma. Tastes hoppy, malty, slightly sweet and very rich. Really nice stuff, donít think Iíve had an Imperial Lager before.

radiomgb (2182) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2012
Clear golden in colour with a long lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is herbal, sweet, some caramel, grassy with some citrus hops. The flavour is lightly sweet, rather hoppy, herbal and citrus, light alcohol. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, quite bitter and dry at the end.

I like these imperial Southern Tier beers, well done here.

650ml bottle from the Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York.
Opened on March 31, 2011.
No date.

Guess I now know why i wasnt a huge fan off this, it was old and I didnt realize they stopped making it, Guess I found an old bottle, It was quite bitter and not smooth in anyway. It wasnt the most refreshing beer I have tasted
