The 2nd creation in the 20th Anniversary Signature Series is a salute to the loyal customers who have supported Sudwerk over the past two decades. While conducting "field research" at a Brewhaus in Bavaria, our wise Brewmaster, Jay Prahl, decided to craft this rare style of Pilsner.
Our Brewmaster began with one of our most celebrated, award winning brews - the Pilsner - and "imperialized" it. He increased the hops and malts to bring you a bolder, stronger, hoppier Pilsner that packs a subtle punch. Brewed using royal Hallertau Perle Hops and Pilsner Malt, the Imperial Pils is a harmonious mix of crispy malt and fresh hop flavors. This gilded elixir has a rich golden color, a fluffy body and a pillowy head - creating a perfect bed of grainy goodness. From tailgate parties to Aristocratic soirees, this brew is great for any occasion. Surrender your sense to the Imperial Pils...sip, savor, and enjoy!

Unhorrible, but not that great either. Has a nice lager yeast aroma - a little bit of butter in there but not much. Pours a clear golden with not much head. Notes of corn, and bitterness. Not something I’d get again, but not horrible either.

16 ounce sample on cask at the Davis Graduate. Aroma is nice and spicy, grassy, and herbal. Plenty of noble hops present here. Some biscuit and cereal hints are also detected in the aroma. Moderately hazy straw-colored body with a fluffy white head and good lacing. Chewy, sticky, biscuity sweet malty start with some fusel alcohols coming through in the middle. Grassy, herbal, and mildly hopped in the finish. This basically tastes like a maibock with a little more hoppiness. Also has some malt liquor character, too. Could definitely use some more hops to balance out the large malt bill.
