UPDATED: OCT 30, 2014 Bottle: thanks, Josh! Clear golden & yellow body, foamy white head with nice lacing all over the glass. Aroma is bready malt, lightly sweet with some musty & ashy hops, finishing touch of citrus spritz & lemon zest. Taste is mild, pilsner malts, bread & crackers with a very timid sweetness. Mid-palate dusty & spent hops with mild bitterness and some leafiness. Finish of light lemon & orange zest, dry and a little yeasty.

Bottle. The pour is light with thin head. The aroma is that of a true pilsner. The taste is full of malt and holds true to style.

Every FFF’s is an adventure not to be passed on. This power pilsner amplifies all the characteristics of a good pilsner. Normally subtle in many ways this pilsner is loud and wants to be noticed. Pour from a 22 with a classic golden hue and white head.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2013 Not much going on here at all. I can’t say anything about it. It isn’t bad. It’s just very run of the mill.

Bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma of malt and noble hops. Malty flavor with some fruit and light herbal accents before a crisp noble hop finish.

On tap at Argus Bar Grille in Madison, WI. for their GToM pre-party. Enjoyed by shaker in the Underground, displaying a clear golden color, with a modest layer of white, frothy head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The aroma was typical but expressive pils, lager, and noble nose. The flavor was amped hops & malt, with some malty sweetness. Best of the Imperial Pils’ tried so far. Well rounded and very drinkable, but isn’t the style kind of a conflict in terms?
