Bright orange colour with big white head. Mild hop aroma. Hop resin mouthfeel with mild hop flavour, I say mild as Luke normally loves hops, so this is very tame for him.

lliams (204) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2013
Crystal clear pour of light straw. Aromatics leap out of the glass- fruits and grass. Tastes much like an Epic beer! Upfront hops with that classic Epic flavour... slightly oily and long on the finish with some heat hanging around, which is a bummer. I like it though wish it was cheaper!

Very pale straw, clear in the glass. Tastes quite ’light’ was my initial impression, you sure dont notice the 8.5% part! balanced, not overly hoppy I thought - was expecting more from you, Epic - but then this is the first imp pils I’ve ever had, maybe this is the style. I like the hop-malt balance, although the fruity hops get through in the end to round it out quite nicely

I could not believe this, $4 at warners, such a fantastic price. The beer was solid, good nose and appearance. The taste is gentle, a hint of passionfruit and citrus. I really enjoyed this! However, I would not pay A$18, a little steep.

explosivedog (1183) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 5, 2017
On tap. Pours pale. Peach, apricot, lots of honey, bit of an alcohol kick, some biscuit. For a silly strong lager, this is bizarrely easy to drink. Thumbs up.

bmeup (679) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2012
Clear golden colour and tight white head. Grassy, citrus and sweet berry aromas. Some grain and herbal character. Quite bitter, heavy and full bodied with a boozy lengthy finish.

Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
clear colour, golden colour. aromas are tropical fruit, some hoppy note, very nice considering it’s a pils. somewhat nutty and malted. big bitter notes, very boozy burn, dry hopped bitterness flavour, which i find weird. finishes slightly malted. it is almost salty!. strange but interesting.

marcus (10227) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle from Corti Brothers, Sacramento. Pours yellow with a fluffy off-white head and a banana and toffee aroma. There is a hearty, slightly harsh pale malt flavor with a dry bitter finish.

floydian1 (1464) - FNQ, Australia, - MAY 21, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Appearance of a bright golden body with loose average-sized white head. Honey malts on the nose with herbal and grassy notes and a hint of alcohol. Some tropical fruity elements in there as well (eg. pineapple, rambutan). The smooth malt bill reminded me of a Duvel golden ale but this one has less complex hopping. Finishes with a moderate dry bitterness that lingers. Remarkably light bodied for the ABV. It is a good brew but pricy in Australia at almost $18 a bottle.
