COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Pilser" realizzata con Sam Calagione del birrificio Dogfish Head (USA). Pils, Carapils, Simcoe, Warior, Saaz <nt>
Una delle poche incursioni nel mondo della bassa fermentazione made in Borgorose, è il frutto della collaborazione tra Leonardo e Sam Calagione di Dogfishead. Ognuno dei due birrai ha messo del proprio in questa birra, scegliendo a turno il tipo di luppolo da aggiungere pugno a pugno in un dry hopping lungo 60 minuti, tra Simcoe, Warrior e Saaz. Più alcolica e corposa rispetto alle classiche Pils, sorprende per la sua intensità rivelandosi esplosiva ma equilibrata. Una bionda “tosta” di cui vi innamorerete, proprio come la protagonista del romanzo di WillaCather da cui prende il nome.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Tasted on 1/26/13 from a capped 375mL bottle purchased at Grand Cru. Pours murky dark orange with a massive, rocky off-white head that slowly recedes to very thick, rocky lace. The nose is some pale cereal malt with with plenty of tropical fruit and dank green hops. The flavor features fuller malt than the nose would have suggested, with some caramel and toffee, and the hops coming through with tons of tropical fruit and some nice green bitterness on the back of the palate. The body is medium with average, stinging carbonation, and a long tropical fruit and bitter hops finish. This drinks more like an IPA/IIPA than a lager.

Flaska från SB. Tack Daniel! Gyllengul, rejält disig, hög bestående skumluva. Snyggt! Söt fruktig doft med söt mogen frukt, aprikoser, mango, honung och fruktkaka. Riktigt stor kropp, rund, mjuk och matig. Mjuka runda smaker. Frukt, honung, nektar, ljust grovt lite sötare bröd. Mycket gott och bland det bästa jag druckit i stilen. Den tydliga beskan när den är färsk är nu borta och kvar blir en riktigt stor och maffig pilsner.

Tap at 100 piv. Slightly oxidized kind of like in a barley wine - sherry, dried fruits. Otherwise relatively subtle pilsnery character, light grassy hops, light caramelly maltiness. Weird combo in a pilsner, but it kind of works. Not very much for me, but for someone surely. Good.

heavy (2890) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 30, 2017
Dec. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle at Regina del Formaggio, Split. It poured a hazy full yellow body with medium to bigger head. Pine, citrus and pepper aroma, not too modern for its own good. Fine biscuit malt behind. Flavor was bitter, lightly sour hoppy, mostly lemon, pepper, grass with complex biscuit malt base which exploded into secondary fruity flavors such as dried fruit and something toasted like caramel to cocoa. Full bodied with moderate, sharply bitter hoppy over bread, fruit and biscuit malty finish. Lightly and pleasantly warming. Beautiful strong pils indeed.

colui72 (1053) - HONG KONG - JUN 23, 2017
Pours cloudy golden, with a big foamy head and nice lacing. Aroma is delicate and floral, with citrus notes and spices. Tastes very hoppy above the pils malts, strong notes of lemon, grapefruit, floral, pine and resin. Crisp and refreshing, medium bitterness, light body, thin feel, lively, bitter finish. Nice summer beer.
