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.

On draft at Taco Mac into a small tulip glass. Medium straw/yellow with a 1/4 inch head which dissipated slowly. Called an imperial IPA - itís got some Belgian going on there too nearly. Not as heavy as a typical imperial, and quite tastey.

drpimento (2188) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Ho boy, great beer! Poured with a foamy, frothy, off white, medium sized head that settles slowly and some lace. Color is a crystal clear yellow. Aroma is malt, grain, cereal, grass, and hops. Flavor is like nose with the bittersweetness standing out along with more pronounced hop. Body is great and carbonation adds to crispness. Finish is fairly long and tapers from a short sweetness to long bitterness and lots of alcohol warming. Session beer.

dabubbleboy (73) - Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Poured 22oz golden color with a nice white head. More hop favor than I was expecting, but that could be because of the high alcohol. Would buy again.

unclemattie (4136) - Georgia, USA - JUL 14, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours clear, bright yellow. Tall white foam head. Aroma of honey, pils malts, citrus, lots of citrus. A touch of lemon. Flavor is of rich malt. Honey and straw. Finishes with a strong bitterness and a touch of alcohol burn. Another great Southern Tier brew.

SPDickerman (920) - Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Pours clear golden/straw yellow with bright white fizz for a head. Smells malted with some bitterness, no adjuncts, generally a good smell. Tastes primarily sweet, in a lager sort of way; no super distinct flavors like in a stout, but certainly is both sweet and bitter. Full-bodied with an oily texture and mild mouth-carbonation (though not nearly as much streaming off the glass), Southern Tier Farmerís Tan Imperial Pale Lager finishes with a touch of graininess and sweetness.

harrisoni (13289) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2012
On tap at Craft Beer Co. Clear deep gold with lasting thin white head. Hoppy aroma. I think really drinkable. Lovely hop too. I really like it. Love imperial lager. Just so drinkable for the strength.

halfonit (1156) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 23, 2010
On tap at Battleship Brewhouse. Has a dark golden color. Aroma is of hops, citrus, caramel, and some other fruityness. Flavor is very hop forward, with some citrus, earthiness, pine, and oak. Finish is full of citrusy hops. Very well done.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Poured into a tall glass mug. Itís a beauty; dark straw color with a thick three fingers of white head. The tall glass shows off the bubbles floating up and the tall head. Quite fragrant for a lager. Strong malt/grain smell. A bit of ripe orange and pear. Well, the taste is strong for a lager too; not up to an ale strong. Sharp bitterness from the hops. The pilsner malt is evident in a larger, strong quantity too. Itís like a triple czech pils crammed into a normal glass. Lots of flavor. Crisp texture, medium body and moderate carbonation. A great job here. All the best of a normal pilsner brought out extra strong.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Deep amber pour with a moderate off-white head. Big citrusy hops dominate the aroma. Flavor is exceptionally smooth, hoppy and a great citrus backbone. The alcohol is disguised very well. This is a great beer.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Bomber. Crystal clear yellow gold with a fluffy white head. Big Valencia orange nose, mildly spicy. Strong grain and bitter orange flavors, finishes with a biting ruby grapefruit. Very tasty!
