draught. hazy golden-orange body, with a moderately sized frothy head. aroma consists of bread, yeast, and sweet cookie dough. Very flavourful with an adequate amount of hoppiness as well as that cookie-malt in the aroma. It’s quite sweet overall. The balance and drinkability of this is just incredible. Probably my favourite pils. muzzlehatch (4969) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Sample at the Mondial. Bright, cloudy orange-gold, thick white head of moderate duration...lightly fruity/malty nose, melon and dry grass...big malty flavors, light alcohol, sweet and a bit syrupy, grainy and with strange hints of licorice, herbal/grassy hops subdued to the rather thick mouthfeel which dries out considerably at the finish. Seems a bit oxidized to me, but still worth a try. ClarkVV (6873) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 7, 2005
On draught at the brewpub and at the fest, June 2005. Light, yet brilliant goldenrod and straw colored beer, slight chill haze, but mostly clear, with a moderate white head, decent retention, low lacing. Aroma of grassy, rustic, floral, herbal, citrus and spicy hops. Everything but the bathroom sink, as far as the hops profile, it seems. Notes of sweet pils malt, but mainly just the juicy fruits. Flavor is full of hops, more flavor than bitterness, but still plenty of bitterness. Juicy fruits from the nose, grapefruit, minty/herbal hops, green grassy hops. Malt provides a backbone, of sweet honey and light doughiness, but does not have that syrupy, hugely sweet thickness that other Imperial Pilseners have. And when the hops are done this well, that’s a good thing. Some of the most flavorful hops belches I’ve encountered. FInish is moderately bitter, lightly spicy and fairly sweet, with a medium body. I didnt find any alcohol. Carbonation was relatively low for the style, and the mouthfeel was slick and bordering creamy at points, though there is some thinning of body on the end. Could stand a little more crisp yeast in the nose too. I really like J.F.’s pilseners. TaktikMTL (7975) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2005

Hoppy aroma, fruity and tart, and very honeyish smooth. Good hop mix, yeast, and malting. One of the best pilsners I have ever tried. Full-bodied. I would make this a staple. DYCSoccer17 (3708) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Draft at Mondial 2005. Very hoppy aroma with citrus notes present. Perhaps I can smell some nobles and Saaz with some boozy undertones as well. I detect a tad of sulfur as well. Moderately hazy orange-honey color with an off-white head. Quite sweet to start with honey notes turning more grainy and quite cereal like. More sweetness in the finish. Moderately cloying. Alcohol is hidden well. DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2004
Hop/malt in the aroma, orange, with a small vanilla custard head. Highly malted flavour, strong presence of hops, fruity. Full bodied, well balanced, very good bitterness. Wonderful! Radek Kliber (7483) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 15, 2004
Aroma full of malts with hints of alcohol . Front was alcoholic , medium sweet . This is Canadian creation of Mocne Polish style. Similar to Okocim Mocne. Father of this style.
