The beer appears okay, it is a clear straw color with a nice one finger white head and some decent lacing on the glass. The smell comes off with a mild lemony smell, some grassy and floral notes, but is light and not much for a imperial pilsner. The taste is okay with a clean grassy flavor, mild lemon zest kicks in on the back end. The mouthfeel is clean and crisp but mild and disappates quickly. Overall, this beer is okay but under delivers in taste for an imperisal pilsner...Ivehad better pilsners, let along imperial pilsner.

Gold pour huge head. Aroma of body funk, lemons, rye spice. Tastes yeasty apricoty with substantial hops and maltss. Thick palate. All around intense brew, but balanced in its intensity.

JStax (2773) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2013
750 ml bottle dated 10/17/12. Pours a bright translucent orange with a big white head of foam. Pretty decent retention. The aroma I grainy, bready, and a little estery. The alcohol sneaks in there as well. Sort of caramely. The taste is sweet overall with that dry alcohol presence coming across more aggressively in the taste. Dry and sweet finish.

Pours pretty amber with an orange hue and a fat head of off white foam that fell slowly and left a layer on top and cloud like lace. Nose is good. Pilsner malt, spicy hops, and a touch of lemon. Starts off with a little grass that becomes more pronounced as it warms. This has a light bread with honey that becomes an actual caramel sweetness as ti warms. I did not observe any alcohol on the nose.

Taste is heavy and immediately boozy. Instead of that citrus and grass and saaz you get alcohol and then a light hop bitter. The sweetness is heavy and detracts from the grain. There’s a corn sweetness in here too. It’s verges on cloying and all the elements of a pislner are fighting with the heavy alcohol and clashing with the caramel. The corn is just too much.

This finishes clashing. Sweetness with a moderate bitter. Thank goodness the carbonation was more than ample to keep the body of this beer from being heavy like a rock. The corn outdoes the spice and that is half the flavor of the pils as far as I am concerned. It’s a little slick on the palate and overall just average.

750 ml bottle shared by a friend- thanks, John! Pours a mostly clear deep golden color with a finger of white head. Notes of pale and sweet malts, honey, cornmeal, grass, straw, and subtle spice. Medium-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Pretty solid for the style, though it isn’t a style I’m wild about.

Bottled on 09/30/10

8/06/2011: Tilted Smile Imperial Pilsner... Aroma: Smells like acetone (nail polish remover) and anti-freeze. Appearance: Most clean bolden color with a minimal off-white head; no visible carbonation. Flavor: I barely got a taste since it went in and pretty much was spit right back out -- sour fermented apple, rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover, and more industrial solvents! Palate: Medium-light; little to carbonation. Overall: Absolutely HORRIBLE; actually, I spit it out everywhere; digesting and instantaneous drain pour.

1 pint 9.4 fl. oz. bottle (9% Alc by Vol) shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #218 for this beer.
