poisoneddwarf (1707) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - FEB 23, 2013
750 ml corked and caged bottle. Bottled 1/4/13. Pours almost clear copper with a large off-white head with excellent retention; leaves behind decorative lacework. Aroma is doughy, lemony, biscuity, caramelly. Taste is lightly sweet before turning bitter mid-palate and remaining that way through the somewhat long finish. Has the nice bready flavor that I look for in this style, along with a strong hop counterpoint. Alcohol is noticeable, but itís not boozy--always a plus. Has a creamy mouthfeel; fairly big body, soft carbonation. I like me a good Imperial Pils, and this is one.

Transfer from BA review on 2-24-13- Poured from 750 ml bottle into a fluted glass Appearance- The beer pours an orange amber color with a big and billowy just-off white head. The head has a fantastic level of retention, very slowly fading to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma is big on malty aromas with a lot of pilsner malt smells. Mixed with this aroma is a yeasty and haylike aroma as well. Some lighter notes of light fruit (apple, pear, and peach) are also there with a rather strong melon aroma. The melon smell is a strange one, being a mix of honeydew and casaba melon with some almost fermented melon smells mixed within. Taste- The taste begins with a sweet melon and caramel and a very malty body. Some flavors of other fruits enter the tongue quickly with apple being the strongest, but mixed with some tangerine and peach. A haylike and funky flavor come to the tongue more toward the middle where they knock down the sweeter flavors. At the end some flavors of alcohol and more haylike ad grassy flavors come to the tongue with an increase in the sweetness with more melon tastes. In the end, all the flavors mix to leave a funky and fruity malted flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel - The body of the beer is on the chewier and thicker side with a carbonation level that is average to just above average. The chewiness is very nice for the malty flavors of the brew as well as oddly quite complimenting of the melon flavors of the brew. The carbonation does a good job of keeping the beer quite easy drinking, yet not overshadowing or hiding any of the interesting flavors of the brew. Overall- This was a rather interesting brew. The aroma with its fermenting melon smells was slightly off putting, but not totally so (somewhat intriguing). Its taste was rather unique with a fascinating mixture of flavors and transitions. I kind of liked the odd flavor profile and while it is not something I would go frequently, it is worth a try and a time to time go to.

PorterPounder (5485) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - cage corked 750 ml bottle. Slightly hazy dark golden with a nice thick, sticky off-white head with a nice film of lacing. Aroma has some buttery and vanilla notes, a hint of yeast. Full bodied flavor with some nice raw cake mix accents, a bit of honey sweetness, some buttery notes. Nice full mouthfeel. Put off buying this as I figured I would come across it on tap on my trip to Utah - no such luck.

VALIS (228) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottled two years ago, but stored in a dark 68 degree area for 18 months or so itís been in my possession. I mention this because on one hand I think this beer might have turned a bit, but reading through the reviews, plenty of them mention an overly sweet taste, and mine is almost syrupy. Smells faintly of citrus, but also rusty water. Plenty of carbonation and lace left, though, so maybe this is just far more sweet and sticky than I prefer.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 11, 2014
Bottled. Orangeish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is nice fruitiness along with some bready malts and mild herbal notes. Flavour is grass, mild fruitiness along with bready malts as well as some slight toffeeish notes. Easy to drink, but also more interesting than your standard pilsí. Hides the abv quite well.

kidmartinek (3640) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 30, 2013
This beer is the color of apple cider with a thick, setting body. The head holds a foamy, respectable white ring around the perimeter of the glass. It tastes intitially almost like apple cider. The aroma is.carmaly fruity. The flavor is sweet carmely bitter malt. Its better than ok, but not good.

Pours a three finger off-white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Crystal clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Sweet grapefruit nose and flavor is grapefruit and caramel. Higher ABV is hidden. Worth trying. $8.49 for a caged and corked 750ml bottle from Hannafordís Concord, NH.
