Deep golden, almost ember-hued colour with a small, flimsy head. Strong fruity aroma with subtle hints of alcohol and maize. Taste is more bitter than expected, has alot of the fruityness and citrus. Medium body and soft to medium carbonation, Rangi (672) - NEW ZEALAND - FEB 26, 2013
Not what I was expecting a imperial pilsner to look or taste like. Poored a hazy pale yellow, slight white head. taste was nice with a touch of the high alcohol coming through. The hops were not really what I expeted they were a lot more subtle I wanted a little more from them. Over all nice but not outstanding. ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2013
Pours a deep hazy orange body with a tiny white rim of foam on the surface. Nose is alcohol, peaches, sweet apricot, pine and hints of caramel and resin in the back. Taste is caramel, resinous piney tones, grass, booze and hints of peaches in the back. Thin to medium body, soft to medium carbonation. Nice enough, but the thin lager body feels a bit scrawny against the syrupy "DIPA" hop tones and the protruding alcohol. Not too bad, though.

Draught at Craft Beer, Lonodn dev 2012. Orange, hazy beer with a small offwhite head. Hoppy, fruity aroma with sourish notes. Hoppy (dill) bitter and fruity flavour. JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - FEB 6, 2013
This pours orange with a thin foam head that does not last.
Aromas is powerful, huge tropical notes invade your nose, citrusy and resin hints as well.
Full bodied malty backbone then a salty well balanced structure of sweet maltiness and bitterness, and again tropical fruits and sponge cake with candied orange peel.

Orange, white head. Smells of malts, grain, cerials with some hops in the back. Medium sweet, quite grainy, some alcohol comes through as well. Heavy bitter, quite resinous. A strange beer this; i feel the alcohol flavor tries to tell me how imperial this is rather than how new zealand’ish it is.
