Non ha senso di esistere, non ha sapore né odore, abituato a birre di forte gradazione non ci sento neanche più l'alcol. Buona per chi non ama le birre e vuol prendere una bella sbronza...

50 cl can, poured into a glass, bbe Aug 05. Light amber/orange, good foamy head, hazy, strong pearling. A rather weak flowery and perfumy odour, reminiscent of a detersive. Malty and fruity (apricots), round in the mouth, tickles the palate.

[draught] I used to remember it was just too sweet for me, but the other night I decided to give it another try... and, well, I almost liked it. I admit it was a hot and sultry night, and a drink (any drink!) was definitely appreciated, but fact is that it was sweet but not cloying; the alcohol was strong but not overpowering. Smooth mouthfeel.

What an out-right rancid brew! Had this one in Italy, not knowing what the hell it was. Tastes like Natty light spiked with a shot of cheap Vodka. Very fizzy, sickeningly sweet. Simply horrific.

Amber coloured beer with medium white head becoming a little white head soon. Grainy, skunky aroma. Taste is alcohol, sugar and barley malt. I drunk already better ones...

La cosiddetta birra degli ubriaconi... Una strong lager da 9 gradi che di strong ha solo la gradazione, povera di profumi e sapori, scarso equilibrio. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Stumbled across this in Sicily, as it seems many others have, as this beer is apparently quite popular in Italian bars. Seems to be a popular high ABV brew, cost-efficient I suppose if you're looking for a buzz on the cheap. While not terrible, "Imperial pils" is too generous a title, more of a malt liquor. By malt liquor standards, it's decent, pours an average golden pale color, smells of grainy malt. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation. The taste is grainy, surprisingly some earthy and fruity hoppiness, also an alcoholic boozy tang. Finish is sour and rough, the high ABV is very evident throughout. Still enjoyable in a way, if you don't approach it with high expectations you won't be disappointed.

Can, bought at a little convenience store in East London that seemed to only stock "super" beer. I wasnít expecting much and I didnít get much. Pours a gold colour with a medium but rapidly diminishing bubbly head. Aroma of alcohol and perfumed malt. Metal and sweet malt-like taste. Just what I expected.

Pours a cloudy orange with a decent amount of slowly dissipating head. Heavy grass and alcohol in the nose. Sickly sweet, not masking the alcohol much in the taste. This seems like the ultimate beer you drink just to get drunk.
