Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2012
0.33l botttle from a supermarket in Monfalcone. This is a crystal clear dark golden one. Not as much as an unfiltered particle or a hint of blurriness. It also has a big bubbly just off-white head that’s lacing down the glass. It does really not smell that much. Light grainy and malty perhaps with a hint of both caramel and thin hops. Not horrible, just not all that much. It has a thin oily texture and it’s average carbonated. Quite boozy at first in the flavor! Then, it calms down after a while and becomes more sweet like. Malty and a hint of caramel also here in the flavor. Not an extreme bitterness, but it’s there in the boozy finish and aftertaste. Did not expect much of this, but I have to say I got more than I was expecting. 09.06.2012

VonClausewitz (132) - Italy, ITALY - OCT 8, 2012
Dorata, limpida, con schiuma bianca non molto persistente. Aromi poco intensi di biscotto e caramello. Bocca alcoolica, dolciastra, poco interessante....

mutz (647) - NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2013
UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 Donkergeel met weinig kraag. Ruikt en smaakt zoetig en verder weinig. Geen diepgang. Niet voor herhaling vatbaar.

Botella de 33 cl en varias ocasiones ya hace años. De hecho mi birra favorita durante la época instituto. Ya desaparecida de los bares y tiendas de España hace tiempo. Donde se puede encontrar de nuevo???. Solo recuerdo su sensación alcohólica sin muchos sabores que destacar. 9 vol. de cerveza sin mas, aunque recuerdo ciertos toques secos y maltosos, unidos a cierta densidad algo dulce. Me encantaría tomarla de nuevo. Creo que el sentimentalismo me puede en esta actual puntuación. Me quedo con etiqueta y botella como recuerdo.

On tap in Italy in a mug. Fruity aroma with a bit af malt. Sweet and refreshing with notes of fruit, but nothing special.

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 at Jacob Lövenlunds place. Golden colour with a Big fast dissapering white head. Light alcoholic malty aroma and a sweet caramel malty alcoholic taste. Medium body and a sweet alcoholic finish.
