Tasted on 5/19/11 from a 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Three Floyds during Dark Lord Day. Pours hazy orange with a thick fizzy white head that slowly recedes to a very thin but even collar of lace. The nose is lightly nutty with hay, bread, grass, dough, and a hint of green hops. The flavor is more hoppy than anything else with some grass and bitter earthy hops along with some nuttiness, hay, bread, and dough. The body is medium and somewhat oily with average carbonation and a long lightly bitter grassy hops finish. There is some alcohol heat on this beer, but it is in no way out of balance. As a matter of fact, this is one of the most balanced "strong Pilsner" I have had.

Appearance:medium light yellow with a dense but fluffy white head that left significant swathes of soapy lace. Aroma: big dose of floral and grassy hops over a barely detectable bed of crackery pilsner malt. Taste: bright citrus tang and big floral hops up front, then a good hit of slightly sweet toasted white bread. Finish: crisp but not clean (in a good way), as the lingering hops dry the palate nicely. Notes: This was, simply, great. The palate was spot on perfect, and the hoppy character was borderline insubordinate. Also, the cover art looked like a cross between Heironymous Bosch and Warhammer 40,000.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2013 Have to rerate 2013’s offering. Much better, lots of citrus. Pretty damn good in comparison. Not much skunk. Lots of fresh hops. Impressed. 2011 - 2.5. Draft at the brewpub. Aroma is hoppy and a little skunky. I amnot a pilsner fan. So, this rating may not be too fair. I will say it is one of the better I have tried.

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Pours a slightly hazy gold with a lush lager-type head. Aroma is dough with woody and herbal hops. Taste is like a slightly syrupy pils with a lingering woody finish and a hint of spicy yeast. Mouthfeel is incredibly creamy. Glad to see the Floyds extending their supremacy to the realm of the lager!!!

Bottle. Orange/peach malt and citrus peel aroma. Golden yellow color with large head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Nicely blended. Nice - easy to drink.

Bottle shared at natifest. Pours a pale yellow with no head. Aroma is floral and fruity. Tastes fruity, sweet, and a touch floral. Overall, one of the better imperial pilsners I’ve had to date.

I cannot believe this is a 7.0 abv. Smooth, smooth, smooth. Not a lot going on, but satisfactory hops and flavor.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Draft at DLD. Pours a reasonably clear and slightly dark gold with a creamy white head. The nose is really nice with pure pils malt aroma coming through witha delicate sweetness and some herbal hop notes. A touch of alcohol peeks through as well. On taste, I love that it is not overly sweet at all. Great pilsner character between the soft bittering and doughy malts and a round fruity melanoidin component. Not exactly what I had expected, but this is really solid stuff.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2011
On tap at the brewpub during Dark Lord Day 2011. Pours a mostly clear, golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is grassy lemons, sweeter pale and bready malts, and some florals. Flavor is similar. Smooth, medium sweet bready pale malts with a hint of caramel. Lots of floral fruits and lemony citrus-grass balanced nicely. Finishes moderately bitter and dry with lots of floral citruses and grass, but a solid balance with the malts. Not cloyingly sweet like a lot of imperial pils. Ends very pleasant with a lengthy aftertaste. Medium-light, smooth, fairly crisp body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a nicely constructed imperial pils. Lots of hops, but well balanced with a solid, never too sweet malt backing. Good beer.
