5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Hoppy aroma. I think really drinkable. Lovely hop too. I really like it. Love imperial lager. Just so drinkable for the strength. Discontinued though.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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 - it’s got some Belgian going on there too nearly. Not as heavy as a typical imperial, and quite tastey.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 Farmer’s Tan Imperial Pale Lager finishes with a touch of graininess and sweetness.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a tall glass mug. It’s 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. It’s 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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
