This is a special lager beer! Made with all German malt and hopped with German and Czech hops with a usage that could be considered obscene.

Growler, courtesy GoT. This one pours a mostly clear dark golden color topped by a thick and foamy tan colored head that shows good retention and leaves rings of lace behind. The aroma shows a base of bready dough and caramel malts to go with a good amount of floral hop bitterness, and a touch of alcohol. The flavor follows suit with the sweet douigh and caramel malts, but is balanced nicely by the grassy, peppery, and floral hops. Almost full bodied and sticky on the palate with a lengthy bitter finish and a slight warming from the alcohol. This is a nicely done imperial pils.

Tap at the brewery. Golden pour with white head that has great legs. Nose is slightly hoppy. Reminescent of an ESB but not as roasty. Subtly sweet malt and a Euro hop bite.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Growler, courtesy 4.4-40. The pour yields a clear, medium-dark golden body, with a tall, spongy column of cream colored foam. Well retained, the head leaves thick, tattered ribbons and broken sheets of lacing behind, coating the glass well. The aroma shows a base of sweet, bready dough and heaps of clean pils malt, countered by a substantial floral hop profile. It smells a little boozy, which proves true on the first sip. Flavors are again lead by sweet, doughy pils malt, yet are sufficiently balanced by peppery, grassy, wildflower hops. Medium-full and sticky, the body clearly gets its heft from the residual sugars, and the finish turns out warm and bitter. Few imperial pilseners are done well, but this is one of them.

Thanks to Armin for sending this my way! Man, what a nose on this one. Bubblegum, sweet tropical fruits, and dry hops out the wazz, a combo that shouldn’t cohere as well as it does. Big bright orange pour with modest yeast and a lusciously creamy head. Super appealing. First sips are pineapple and guava, then you get some crisp dry hops sliding in amidst a generally robust and flavorful beer. Full palate, nice and easy drinking even as it delivers the goods in terms of complexity. A really wonderful and unique imperial pils. I want more.

Tap @ town hall. Syrupy sweet aroma. German and Czech hops evident in nose. Clear dark gold w no visible carbonation. Strong and sweet. Very good. Compared to the other imperial pils’ I’ve had this one has a maltier backbone and is sweeter, both if which subdue the hops slightly. Seems hotter than Sam adams’ version. Really quite outstanding!

Pours golden with off white head, aroma is full of European hops. Taste up front is huge hop character with floral and resiny character, goes into a pilsener malt and finishes extremely bitter. No alcohol presence, what an excellent beer!
