Pours gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is grass, bread and citrus. Taste is moderate bitters into a sweet finish. Light bodied for an imperial, crisp finish. Solid imperial pils, lots of flavor as it was fresh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2010 Sampled on draft at 3 Rivers 6 Pack this beer poured crystal clear vibrant dark yellow with a medium sized foamy yellow-white head that lingered and produced good lacing. The aroma was faint and dry with crisp floral and grassy hops. The flavor was dry with crisp grassy and floral hops and a touch of fruity hops. There was a chewy malt base with touches of cracker. The finish was long, dry and grassy. Medium body. The alcohol was very well hidden. Solid.

Incredible beer. Looks a smells like a pilsner, but the added alcohol give it an incredible smoothness and, oddly, increased drinkability. Perfectly balanced with enough hops to cut through the bit of sweetness. My favorite imperial pils by far, a shame that it was so limited.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Medium gold pour with white head. Nose is pale malt, heavy Saaz hops, honey, mild fruit. Crisp tasting with initial Saaz hop and pale malt flavors giving way to some apricotty fruit and lemonrassy hay notes. Crisp and smooth, this one is very good, although I prefer their regular pils.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Flat Rock Saloon. Poured golden with white head. Solid lacing. This beer is dominated by a grassy, hoppy finish. Saaz all the way. Suprised to see 8% ABV. Alcohol not noticeable. Worth trying again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at TDR Ex: Aroma of hops, lemon, grass, and a bit of soap. Poured golden/yellow in color with a medium-sized, rocky, white head. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is lightly bitter and lightly sweet. Tastes of citrus, lemon, hops, herbs, pine, grass, and a hint of bubblegum. Medium body. Tingly texture. Lively carbonation. Bitter citrus and Pils malt finish. Hold the Pilsner flavor very well for an imperial Pils.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Stoudt’s Brewing. Very pale golden straw colour with a fluffy white head. Lots of fresh bright zesty hop aroma. A bit of light honey as well. Fresh noble hop flavour over a very lean pils malt base. Less syrupy than most other impy pils I’ve had. Very light breadiness and some lingering lemony citrus and zesty spiciness. More hallertauer/tettnanger-like hoppiness than saaz. Really excellent brew with a soft crisp bitterness.

light hopped malty aroma. The body is clear and pale, the color of budweiser. There is a sweet honey aroma as well. the flavor is also full of honey with more American hops than expected. Not bad for a pilsner
