12oz bottle. Pours a clear lighter golden with a nice thick frothy white head and some sticky lacing. Aroma is fairly fruity, sweet cereal, corn, grassy, noble hops, smells thick. Flavor is quite aggressive, lots of Saaz, slightly cheesy, a great deal of residual sweetness, fairly hot, some cereal sweetness but without a lot of character. Medium bodied up front with nice fizzy round carbonation with a slight sizzle but finishes rather syrupy and unpleasant. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I definitely prefer the Sam Adams. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Clear, light gold pour, minimal head. Aroma holds lots of grain, toasted sesame, and a bit of hop bitterness. Sweet malt flavor, grain, a bit of citrus hop- nothing complex, but a tasty lager. Solid for the style. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - FEB 24, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a bright clear yellow with a small tight white head. The aroma was fruity sweet and boozy with a touch of floralness in the back. Taste is of spicey hops up front lending in to a very bready, and muted yeast flavoring with a touch of grassiness and sweetness in the finish. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, slightly oily and somewhat dry finish. Arayaga2 (2197) - portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Hazy yellow with a poufy white head. Lively aroma of honeysuckle, citrus, and an odd bit of pineapple. Taste is the same, with sweet lemon-tea and a fading slightly medicinal edge. Very nice and well "dialed up". $2.5/12oz BroSpud (2188) - , Massachusetts, USA - OCT 19, 2009
12oz bottle. Very well done pilsner. I was a bit hesitant about the high abv on this one but it does not detract at all, very little if any alcohol taste comes through. One of the better pilseners I have had. Pours golden with a foamy head that sticks around. Definite floral hops coming through in a crisp and pleasant grassy taste.

Golden yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma is toasted malt, some graininess, caramel, and a slight hop bitterness. Flavor is sweet light sugar malt, sweet citrus, and a mild bitterness. Palate is full for the style- smooth finishing resinously. dlovell2 (2132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 1, 2015
On tap at brewery in Windsor, VT. Pours golden with white head. Light grainy malt with floral and citrus and herbal yeastiess. Flavor is sweet light grainy dry biscuit malt, lemon, citrus, and spicy herbal yeat finish. Really crisp and clean brew rocbyter (2123) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Robust grain and yeast aroma. Clear golden color with a large white head. I wish I poured this on in a larger glass. Light sweetness is masked by some hops in the beginning with bitter hop and mild alcohol in the finish. Hearty lager. scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Tasting – Wine Source. Gold, creamy white head. Sweet toasted corn and grassy-grain aromas warm to softer hints of earthed bread and citrus throughout. Toasted and lightly sweetened caramel flavors round with a cornbread and kiss of floral hop finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, light bittersweet and bready finish. As I really enjoy the Imperial Pilsner style, this one falls somewhere in the middle class… mcox90 (2088) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 14, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a 1/2" white head. Aroma is grains, malt and citrus. Moderate palate, low carbonation. Flavor is bready grain, sugar, malt, mild hops and pepper. Yes, I said pepper. Just a little.
