Pilsener - Imperial

A catch-all for strong, sometimes hoppy lagers that range from modern versions of "Imperial Pilsner", to more traditional strong lagers which are more common in Eastern Europe. These are essentially stronger versions of pilsners, though the increased malt and alcohol will noticeably reduce the hop accent. Because these are usually all-malt, and comfortably hopped, they are easily distinguishable from malt liquors. Without the malt character of bocks, these are worthy of a style all their own.
