Light yellow pour. White head. Crisp aroma. Pale malt, hops, light yeast. Flavor is nice, pils malt, yeast, a hint of unripe fruit. Good.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Served on tap at Maria’s Package Goods and Community Bar during Chicago Craft Beer Week. A: Pours a nice hazy orange with a decent .5 finger, off-white head. S: Immediately big malts hit the nose with a great yeasty back drop. Some sweetness is floating around, almost like a ripened fruit. T: Slight sweet watermelon for a brief second follow by the intense malt roast in the middle. Bitter hops at the end, but not as pronounced other imperial pilsners. M: Light/medium bodied with nice carbonation. Leaves a malty film over the mouth after each sip which tones down the bitterness. O: Better than other Pilsners, but still just sort of an average beer. Nothing popped or stood out for me on this one. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 05-22-2011

22 oz bomber from DLD 2011. Time to open this, I guess. Pours a big puffy head over a darker gold lager color. Takes a while for the head to finally settle to a short layer. I am not getting much in the way of nose, probably a consequence of letting it age for a year. well, then again, there is a welcome whiff of alcohol after a few more sniffs. Sipping it does give the nice impression of a high-powered malt liquor, without the headache inducing fusels (Heloooo Big Hurt). A true gargleblaster to give my sore throat a wakeup call, with not just alcohol but fizz. I would have thought this would have the standard Noble hops, and a hint of perfume suggests that, but there’s also a citrus bender that suggests C&Cs. It’s a nice way to celebrate ALMOST finishing my Oracle Database class and getting back to looking for a job.

Pours a hazy light orange with a fizzy white head. The aroma is sweet, bread, yeasty, floral, and earthy. The taste is sweet light malts with medium bitterness. I wish it were a bit hoppier, but not bad.

65cl, no mention of ABV, as Evil Power Imperial Pilsner, new exclusive American brew Anno 2011, thx to Secret Santa!, complex brew, floral/sweet and slightly malty/fruity, very balanced, hazy, rocky head, good brew, yet expensive!

22 oz bomber from a trade with The Alum. Poured a slight chill hazed dark rusty orange body with an average sized foamy white head. Aroma is sweet with notes of green grapes, raisins some honey and bread. Fuller bodied with average to slightly strong carbonation and a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor of old wet bread with some honey and grapes, basically it’s sweet and grainy overall. Interesting beer but I’m still not sold on this style.

Bomber from Secret Santa (alexsdad06) - thanks for this. I’ve loved Impy Pils ever since Sam Adams brought theirs out. Pours hazy orange tinged gold with a creamy near-white head. Aroma is bready and citrusy/fruity. Unusual. Med + body. Wow. It’s hoppy. It is hoppy.* Now the hop seems rather Saaz. It has something of a barley wine aspect. It just gets better and better. Gets lush. Yum. *in a relative sense. Darn hoppy for a lager!

Bottle , Hazy light orange color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was a bit yeasty with hints of honey and light citrus. Flavor was very much the same as the aroma, sweet and a tad yeasty. Overall a good showing here.CHEERS!

Bottle shared by BenC...thanks Ben! - Pours hazy golden amber with a thin off-white head. Honey cornbread on the nose with some yeast and light herbal hoppiness. Very fruity taste, with lots of yeastiness, pale malt, and an almost sugary note. Feel like the hops are blanketed by the other flavors, and there’s very little crispness. Grassy hops on the finish, and the whole thing is pretty mouth-filling. Just not my style--I want this thing toned down, crisped-out, and a little more easy-drinking.

Pour is a clear light gold bordering on yellow color with a small white head. Nose is a bit malty with some light fruit notes as well. Taste is rather sweet with a little bit of a citric hop bitterness in the backend.
