Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Draft. Pours golden body with a white head. Sweet with fruity esters and a grainy full body with a thin earthy hoppiness and lots of cereal notes. Decent. blipp (9598) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Draft. Pours gold with a thin white head. Light sweet fruity aroma, with some grainy malts. The flavor has a light sweetness, a light boozy hint, and some hoppy bitterness in the finish. Good, not great. thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Tap @ Blind Tiger. Pours a deep gold with a small white head. Aroma is grain and hops. Taste is grain up front with a decent hop bitterness at the end. Beer is sort of fizzy, and surprisingly weak given what it is. It’s decent, but not great. bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2009
A very good pilsner. Dry finish. not overly hoppy. Tastes like a pilsner should taste. Another great beer from Blue Point. rocbyter (2147) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JUN 15, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Grainy aroma. Clear dark golden color with a small white head. Mild sour malt beginning witha very light bitter finish.

Imperial pint pour @ the Ginger Man. Color is completely dull golden and has a foamy thick head, which is pillow-y and mellows slowly. Aroma is very non-bright herbal hops, there but not shining through. They are strong yet dull. Has lots of very thick white bread maltiness behind it. Taste is very grainy cereal malts with a strong hop kick, nothing too vibrant or interesting in terms of hops. A long bitterness follows, which actually becomes a bit too astringent in the dry hopping. It tries to be delicate yet aggressive all at the same time. Its got the parts just needs to meld better. j12601 (13035) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2009
On tap at the Golden Rail. Pours a clear light golden yellow with a medium white head. Smells of hot grain and alcohol, with a faint background of citrus. Thin, with a big grain and metal flavor (I get a lot of this in most BP brews sadly), and a bit sweet. Finishes with more sweetness, and more metal. glennmastrange (2899) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2009
Tap. Light aromas of grain for the malt, grass for the hops, and background notes of wood, whiskey and corn. Head is small, wispy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear amber. Flavor starts lightly acidic and finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, slick, and has a lively carbonation. Nothing too powerful, but a real nice easy drinking Pilsener. notalush (5910) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2009
It’s nice to see an American brewer "double" something without making it an alcohol bomb - however, 6 and change does not an imperial lager make - more like a slightly stronger pils - you wouldn’t know from the flavor, though, as it is quite sweet, even for 6.5% - the sweetness, fuller body, and relatively creamy mouthfeel make this come across more like a maibock than anything else, but a tasty one - some buttery character through the middle, malty sweetness, and then some spicy hops and strong floral notes - bright fruity character, also more like a maibock - could be a bit cleaner in the finish, but it’s still pretty good.
