berkshirejohn (5093) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2012
50cl can. Pours pale gold with a billowing cream coloured head; the aroma has grain, stewed vegetables and alcohol; the flavours not to bad with sour grains and a syrupy texture; and the alcohol isn’t too apparent on the warming finish.

Kita (1427) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottled, 0.50l. Clear deep golden color with small frothy white head and average visible carbonation. Aroma of moderate biscuity malt, some caramel, light hops and strong alcohol. Taste starts with heavy malty and fruity sweetness, followed by strong alcohol note and finished moderate bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture ajd average carbonation in palate. Good to get drunk with it, but without many positive features...

bembelembe (216) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 21, 2008
Quite strong beer. Alcohol is the most dominant in this beer. It’s not that sweet as I expected. Very light in bitterness. Notes of syrupy caramel balanced with touch of lemon.

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.
