adnielsen (9709) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Bottle @ home. Hazy, golden yellow appearance with a small white head with big bubbles. Sweet, slightly grainy, pils malty, straw, grassy hoppy aroma. Sweet, somewhat fruity, pineapple, mango, straw, hay, grassy flavor. A little odd and a little sickly sweet.

hopdog (9525) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2010
750ml bottle. Bottled on 06/09/10. Poured a medium and cloudy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of toasted grains, wheatiness, hay, and grass. Tastes of citrus, honey sweetness, grains, and hay.

GT2 (9132) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. Pours a clear, deep yellow with a sheeting white head. Aroma of honey, malt, cherries, and sweet syrup. Taste is malty, boozy, spicy, with a palate that is powdery dry. But as this warms and I spend more time with it, the nose really devolves quite a bit. What was sweet with some oddities now smells like diabetic, sugar heavy urine; cherry powder, even a bit of poopy toilet. Something old and fusel in character is making itself known. Taste is trash malty, powder, flour, bland corn starch. Really just a definitive drain pour. Really just unenjoyable. Vile, gag-reflex on the palate.

Dogbrick (9085) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Sample at the Sour Village / CCB Tasting on 05/20/2011. This beer is a lustrous golden-yellow color with a medium thin bone whitehead that evaporates steadily. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of mildly spiced hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of grainy malt, hops and zesty fruit. The finish is mildly hopped and short. Pretty average overall, I was expecting more.

JoeMcPhee (8807) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Radek. Deep golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is semi-sweet and a little bit honeyed. Some light sticky malt and a touch of cooling minty honey malt flavour. A little bit of soft herbal malt flavour. Simple brew – probably has a bit of age on it, but it’s decent enough.

Meilby (8609) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2011
Bottle 750ml @ RBNAG-11
Pours cloudy golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, grain and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Biscuity malts are doused in honey in this heavy, oily interpretation of an Imperial Pilsner.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the hazy pale amber shine.
-Malt flavors are loud, yet never recall Pils malts. Disappointing.
-The flavor profile is exactly what you expect from the aroma.
-This is in the Dogfish Head mold of potent, sugary brews. Well-made, but lacks subtlety for my tastes in the style.
-Herbal hops are there, but mostly smothered by the residual sugars.

Bottle. Thx Steve!

DocLock (8311) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Pours clear medium gold with 3 finger white head. Nose is pale malt, mild hopcitrus. Tastes pale malty, with some sweetness, and a crisp hoppy finish. Medium to light palate with pretty well hidden alcohol. Not as good as Sam Impy Pils or the Rogue version, and just OK overall.

mcberko (8287) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2012
On tap at Uber Tavern, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of hay, grassy hops, wheat and sweet corn. Flavour of soft sweet malts, corn, hay, and grassy hops. Light-bodied, smooth and subtle. Quite decent.

DSG (7536) - Tel Aviv, - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Ariel. Slightly hazy golden. Aroma of stale hops and a bit of malt. Sweet malty flavor with some honey, a bit of fruitiness and a slightly drier finish with a bit of cardboard. Medium-bodied. Not good, seems old.
