Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a light gold color with a small, white head. The nose has a slight odd green hop note and a little pale malt. The flavor has a peppery bitterness, off metallic notes, some grain, green apple, green pepper, and alcohol. Medium bodied with low carbonation and an odd bitter and vegetal finish. This brew is a bit of mess. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2010
12oz bottle from the Sahara Mart in Bloomington, IN. Pours a crystal clear, golden colored body with some orange to it. Finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is grainy pale malts, some nice zesty grass, a few florals, a touch of caramel, and a lightly sweetened cereal maltiness. Flavor is sweet and malty up front before it gives way to a solid grassy, zesty lemon, floral hoppiness. Some sweet oranges in there as well as some honey and sweeter cereal malts. Finishes very dry with a solid mixture of citrus-grass and sweeter malts to give this a light-moderate bitterness and lengthy aftertaste. Light-medium, smooth body and soft, light carbonation. Overall, an above average imperial pils. Has a pretty solid malt backing and hop presence that makes this fairly tasty. Doesn’t quite seem to flow perfectly together, but nonetheless, not bad. keepersj12 (3117) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Typical Pilsner aroma, maybe a bit hoppier though. Clear straw color with a thin head. Taste has a nice Pilsner base with more hops than you would expect. Finishes crisp and clean. Very easy going down.

12oz. bottle. $3 at Binny’s in January. The pour is deceptively like any other pale lager: yellow fizz under a puffy head. But the yellow is a little deeper, and the bubbles have a little more trouble getting up the glass. A nice malty smell that does not betray any alcohol, and just a little hop. Taste has thick malts, and that’s where the alcohol starts to creep in. Thankfully, though, no alcohol burn, and no adjunct filler to up the amperage. A big puff of foam stays in the glass, daring me to drink around it. I just get some beer bitterness, no distinctive hops. But then, I did let this sit around for several months. jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Draft at Screw City Beer Fest. From Notes. Pours a hazy dark gold with a white head. Aroma and taste of bready and doughy yeast. Citrus and pine hops. Pretty decent, but not super special.

12oz bottle. Rating #99. Clear dark gold pour with a white head. Grains and a little sweet on the nose, and a hint of corn. A little metallic up front, sweet grain and mild bitterness. Ok stuff. (2329) SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Bottle. Aroma of pilsner malt and spicy hops. Flavor is malty, pilsner, earthy and spicey hop character with a touch of citrus peel, light sweetness with a balanced bitterness. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, solid brew and pleasant. glennmastrange (2871) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Bottle. Moderate malt note of grain, light to moderate herbs for the hops, with hints of wood, honey, and peppery arugula. Head is small, fizzy/frothy, white with fair lacing and is almost fully diminshing. Color is slightly hazy yet sparkling light amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, a little slick with a fizzy carbonation and a lightly alcoholic and drying finish. It’s a nice tasting beer, but a little weak as an Imperial Pilsener. islay (2775) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2011
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 6-17-11. Fruity, floral aroma features lemon and grapefruit scents. Continental hops noticeable in the nose, but it’s not as hoppy as I had hoped. Pours an effervescent, hazy brass with a small to moderate amount of off-white head. Produces sporadic lacing. Salty, “beery,” creamy taste features yellow plum and condensed milk flavors. Dry finish and aftertaste. Medium body. Lively in the likable palate. Breckenridge Regal Double Pilsner is decent but forgettable and disappointing.
