Light amber pour with a white head. The aroma is full of grain notes. The flavor is a bit more complex. I get some nice orange and candy sugar notes as well as some toffee. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2011 In short: A very big pilsner that remains just as drinkable as a good regular pilsner. Excellent
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy dark golden body topped by a off-white ring of foam
In long: Nose is like smelling a hay stack. A whole lot of malt in this one. Crunchy honeyed cereals abound. Sweetness is rather well balanced by a hefty amount of slightly spicy grassy hops with a light tree bark character. I still dont think an Imperial Pilsner is a great idea but this one is the exception to the rule. Unlike most Imperial Pilsner this one remains as highly drinkable as an excellent regular pilsner except that its bigger and more intense. An example of excellence for this sub-type. and on the seventh day God was hangover.

ClarkVV (6066) - 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, thats a good thing. Some of the most flavorful hops belches Ive 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.

Boutip (6026) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2011
Bottle: Poured a clear dark golden color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with light dry hops notes is interesting. Taste is more dominated by sweet malt notes then Nobel dry hops then I was expecting. Body is fuller then expected with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Interesting take of the style but I would personally have preferred more Noble hops notes.

JulienHuxley (5659) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle. Clear copper pour, thin white head. Nice aroma of german hops, quite grassy, some malty pumpkin-like presence too. Taste is full of hoppy bitterness, residual sugars, fruity alcohol. Palate is nice, med bodied, good carbonation, nice finish. Probably one of the best imperial pilsners Ive had.

Bottle (341 ml). Completely clear golden with a medium mostly diminishing white head and huge lacing. Aroma is grassy and mineral with notes of caramel and alcohol. Taste is grassy with booze, noble hops and caramel. Mouthfeel is oily. Impressive body for a pilsner. This beer is greatly balanced, quite complex and fairly drinkable for is 8.5% abv. Massive Imperial Pilsner. Another wonderful beer by DDC!

(Rating numro 800, 341 ml) Le liquide a une robe dore passablement fonce. La petite tte blanche se retire aprs quelques minutes. Une dentelle se dessine sur le verre. Le nez est un change harmonieux entre des crales mielleuses et des parfums de foin et de fleurs des champs. Des armes fruits russissent saffirmer. Les saveurs sont trs intressantes : des houblons amrisants et aromatiques viennent appuyer des notes maltes lgrement sucres. En bouche, le liquide prend un bel espace. Son ptillement modr honore les saveurs. Sa texture est paisse, huileuse souhait. La finale est marque par une amertume de houblons bien poivrs.

Deep golden color, malty nose with subtle, peachy fruity nose. Rich syrupy mouth with peaches, pears and apples. malty, rich finish. Pleasently warming and pleasently tasting. Great stuff
