4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Interesting interpretation of the pilsner style. Very complex for its style. Floral, flowery smell with malty aroma and a nice sweetish bitter hoppy finish. Refreshing yet complex!
Pours clear solar yellow with a thick and fairly persistent porcelain head. Aroma delivers crisp pear and fresh malt tones plus a hint of hops. Flavor continues the aroma while taking everything, especially the hops, up a notch. Normally I don’t think of pilsners - even Imperial ones - as bold, but this one is! Mouthfeel presents decent body and jazzy fizz. Capsize a glass - but if you get "capsized," please call a ride. Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - FEB 13, 2017
Poured into a pilsener glass, the appearance was a hazy golden/yellow color with a fluffy white two fingered head that died off at a good pace. Stringy lacing.
The aroma gave way to some citrus pith, floral qualities, and some earthy to grassy tones.
The flavor had a fully crisp bitter hoppy taste pulling the citrus to the fresh leafiness and a touch of floral to resiny bitterness. Smooth balanced crisp sweet aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to almost medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. Appropriate feeling ABV.
Overall, super nice imperial pilsener that I would have again. onceblind (10864) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2016
Hazy golden under a fluffy white head, giving a very pleasing nose of citrus pith, floral tones, and a pleasant earthy grassy tones. Full crisp hoppy flavor that’s citrusy, fresh leafy, a touch floral resiny, all on a smooth Pilsner malt doughiness. Lightly cracker-like lager tone.

Bomber. Grainy malt aroma with notes of grassy and floral hops as well as a pinch of citrus. Pours clear pale golden colored with one finger of white head that has excellent retention but very little lacing. Starts with grainy malt flavors with a little bit of citrus mixed in as well. Finishes crisp, clean and refreshing with slight amounts of grassy and floral hops to dry and cleanse the palate. Nice pils.

Pours clear yellow with a white head. The aroma has rich malt, herbal spice hops and some alcohol. It has a fairly full body with study carbonation. The taste is pretty rich and malty with only a bit of hops that are on the earthy and floral side. Decent

Sample at the 29th Annual Oregon Brewers Festival on 07/30/2016. Cloudy yellow-gold color with a medium white head that recedes steadily to a film. Short strings of lace. Aroma of grassy hops, fruit and malt. Medium body with flavors of spicy hops, citrus and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with an herbal hop aftertaste. Decent overall. crispaire (255) - - AUG 16, 2016
Pleasant aroma, with a bit less spice than typical pilsners. Nice pale golden hue. Very smooth, satisfying, and sessionable (despite the 7% ABV). stevoj (5869) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Bomber from WinCo. Nice golden body, tight white creamy head. Grainy lager aroma erupts into a nice sharp taste, faint hoppy bite at the back end. Creamy, velvety smooth. Closer to a lager than a pils, but well done, so it doesn’t mstter. BuckeyeBoy (8860) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 3, 2016
22oz bottle pours out a hazy gold topped with a white head. Nose is grassy earth hops grain and cereal. Taste is more of the earthy grassy hops some grapefruit pithy bitterness and a nice grain.
