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!

Tmoney99 (10085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting and produced good lacing. Moderate hops and small malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid brew and very good for style.

brokensail (9938) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 7, 2011
A: The pour on this beer is a bright orange-amber color with a finger or so of white head. S: Not a great nose, but decent. Sweet bready and cracker malts with a bit of apple juice and some floral hops. A little bit of yeast and caramel sweetness. T: A more well put together flavor. Plenty of malt giving the beer a nice bread and biscuit flavor. There are lots of floral malts and a hint of citrus peel. A light bitterness on the back end rounds it out. M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation. Could have used a little bit more effervescence, though. O: Imperial pilsners can often been too sweet, but this had a nice balance to it.

Lubiere (9430) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2011
A lightly hazed golden amber imperial pils with a thin creamy light moka head. In aroma, a mineral whiff of fresh air, grainy malt, fresh and smooth. In mouth, a smooth crisp malt with German hops, light alcohol, quite nice. Bottle shared with GRM and ProbstK. July 24 2011. Merci Sylvain!

GT2 (7884) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 6, 2011
651mL thanks to tastybeer. The pour is a hazy dark peach color with a healthy, large, buttermilk head. Bulky lace. Nice retention. Nose is sour peach. Taste is doughy, sharply bitter, a bit suddy, mildly tart, noticeable alcohol. Finishes a bit watery with cardboard. Palate feels slick and buttery but sourness cuts out an unpleasantness. Not bad. But I don’t think any brewery could sell me on the imperial pils idea.

Bottle. Pours apricot gold with white head. Nose/taste of alcohol soaked peaches, orange peel, malt, pepper and citrus bread. Medium body.

Thanks to Armin for bringing the bomber! Poured clear honeyed golden with a short, dense white head. The aroma picked up strong grainy and grassy notes with a cereal malt backing.. not over the top with hops, but there was definitely a lot in there.. balance was solid. The flavor found grainy notes and honey at the core, with earthy and grassy bitterness around.. finished more assertive with earlier character amplified by alcohol.. this was a solid example of the style (which isn’t a very good one).
