Bought on DLD day. Pours a bright yellow with white head. Smells of sweet bread & a hint of hops. Slight hop taste upfront which ends in a definite pilsner bread yeast. Not a pils fan even on a good day but this is doable most likely to their hops used. Overall this is a nice pils in both style & taste. 3F did it well.

Yellow-gold with good, creamy, frothy, white head, modest legs / Floral nose of grain, honey, cream / Medium to full body, some sweetness, excellent balance with fine bitter finish / Flavors of grain, resin, honey, wildflower / Really nice. Big but not overbearing with exceptional balance.

Tortman18 (188) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Bomber. Pours a clear golden/yellow with a huge, frothy white head that dissipates very slowly. Not much lacing. Nose is very welcoming. Sweet and very hoppy. Citrus hops to be specific. Grapefruit and a bit of lemon zest make this one delicious. Mouth is not early as good as the nose. Taste is very breadlike with a slight hint of spice and floral hops. An interesting grass like tast is present. Medium bodied.

crossovert (7563) - Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2013
I’m a raving metalhead btu Lair of The Minotaur just blows and I love thrash metal, they are talentless. Just listen to some Celtic Frost or Sarcofago. Slightly hazed yellow pour. Bready malt smell with light candied citrus/mostly herbal hops. Flavor has some initial smoke which is odd. It turns into an overly sweet pils. Probably the best "imperial pilsener" I have had forma US brewer but still not all there.

rxeight (1365) - Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Let me start off by saying that i dont like pilsners, but i love three floyds and will try anything they make. This is an odd bird. They made a pilsner, but in typical 3 floyds fashion, they filled it with an insane amount of fruity hops. The result is a beer that starts off like dreadnaught but ends miller lite. Has the black tea and sawdust finish of a pilsner.

Bottle: pours cloudy pale straw, bright white head. Hay, mild buttery notes, bread, grains on the nose. Biscuit, grassy malts, nice sweetness and then bitterness for drying effect on the finish. Bigger bodied Pilsner that grew on me. Better than Jinx Proof. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ryanscourt (775) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Good German hop flavor similar to the jinx proof but more bitter and bigger malt body. Flavors linger nicely. Thought this one was pretty well done. Defintly has an intensity and the end if the palate that pilsner a dont have but the flavor pattern is very similar. A amped up pilsner just as the name dictates.

Patrickctenchi (3807) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2013
Draft: Pours clear gold, small white head. Nice hoppy bitter aroma and flavor. ABV is very well hidden. Not bad, not bad at all.

beerbaaron (1278) - Arizona, USA - APR 30, 2013
Draft. Golden. Small white head. Earthy hoppy, grass, grain. Very much a ’middle of the road" beer. Not offensive in any way but not a super standout. Good balance. Very good for the style but somewhat ’normal’ by FFF standards.

DrSilverworm (6571) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2013
On tap at DLD 2013. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Good retention, good lace. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Good moderately dry finish. Nice bready taste, light pepper. Good lightly spicy hop. Impressive for the ABV, how drinkable this is. Doesn’t taste "imperial". Good moderate bitter taste, no hint of alcohol. More dry finish. Awesome imperial pils. Doesn’t taste much stronger than a normal pils. Pretty stealthy.
