3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2012 The biggest Pilsner I’ve ever had, and possibly the best (coincidence, right?). Pours slightly copper, big head. Nose is much bigger than a pilsner typically, very hoppy. It’s then got the super thin body of a pils (well at least as this as possible at 9%) and a big pile of hops. Describing this as a lagered imperial IPA might help.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aromas of honey, bread, and grass. Clear gold with a fairly lasting, white head. Dry, savory, and with a perceptible strength, flavors are nutty and somewhat floral and grassy. Medium-full bodied with decent carbonation and a somewhat apricot-like, sticky finish.

Pours a golden color with aroma of honey and creamy butter. Taste is light for such high alcohol content. Flavor of mango, banana and grass. Overall, an enjoyable beer.

On tap, pours a very nice golden yellow, with thin tight head and nice lacing. Nose is hops, malt, mild bread yeast. Crisp bright light taste, malts and yeast mildly balanced with a nice bitter hop bite. quick clean finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear gold with a large eggshell head. Smells of sweet crackery malt and subtle grass. Falls a bit flat on flavor though. Sweet and biscuity and nothing else. Vaguely Belgian tasting.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle dated 9/14/12 popped when uncorked. Pours a clear golden orange with big foamy white head and some spotty lacing. Smells like a pilsener. Aroma has lots of sweet malts, some bread, and honey. Tastes sweet with a slightly bitter finish with alcohol burn noticeable. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and only slight carbonation. Overall a bit of a disappointment. I’d rather have 3 500ml bottles of Eastern European strong lagers than this, given the same price.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
25.4 ounce bottle. Pours a golden color with a 4+ inch white head collapses slowly. Taste is of malt, spice, hops, pepper, grass, light citrus and some grapefruit. Similar clean aroma. Has a nice creamy body. The finish is warming and a bit bitter and dry. Very easy to drink and quite enjoyable. Far too easy to drink the whole bottle. Good Stuff.
