3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle- Pours a dark golden yellow, white head. Nice inviting nose of cereal and malt noses. This is the easiest to drink"imperial" pils I’ve ever had. Not too sweet, not too boozy. Very plesant and could definitely get one in trouble!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy light amber golden color with a thin off white head. Aroma is light caramel malts, slightly nutty, not much hops. Flavor is mildly sweet, mildly nutty, classic pilsner taste. Light to medium in body, but drinkable. Not too bad. Not my style.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Note: My rating is for a Tequila barreled version.
Pours red/orange with no head at all. Aroma is oak, tequila, alcohol. Taste is overwhelming tequila/wood....I felt like I was doing a shot of below-average tequila. Some of the pilsner sneaks through...you get apple and pear, lots of the barrel, big alcohol heat. In the end, too much booziness to save this one.

Really dank and bitter! Full bodied, hazy golden color. Lots of malt and grain in the smell and taste. Hops are present but not overwhelming.

9/13/2012. From bottle. Pours golden color with a white head. Aromas of malt, hay, yeast, hops and light fruit. Caramel and bready flavors. A bit too much alcohol for my taste.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Sweet malty nose with a dash of lemony citrus, light earthy hops and caramel, touch of dough. Pours rich deep golden with a fizzy off-white head. Heavier dough in the mouth, a little spice and even some off-putting booze levels. Faintly herbal touch on the herbal hops, bready finish under the pils malt and booze. Full body, smooth. Not bad, but reminds of the very good reason pilsners should stay around 5%.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear orange yellow pour, with a white head. Sweet malt, doughy, sugary, fairly hoppy, bitterness, and light citrus. A little bit boozy. Definitely tastes like an imp pilsner.
