Pilsener - Imperial

The Imperial Pilsener, or Imperial Pils, is a crisp, clean, medium-bodied, attenuated, gold-colored, bottom-fermented lager that usually showcases modern American or New World hop varieties. Similar to a German Pils in appearance, but with a more pronounced malt profile and bitterness as well as an higher alcohol content. There can be some overlap with some stronger India Pale Lager examples altough the clean Pils profile must be prominent.
