22oz bottle. pours a clear gold with a medium, creamy, white head. nose has notes of vanilla, baking soda and pale malt. the flavor is lightly sweet with vanilla cake flavors. the abv does show up in the beginning and is quite astringent but goes away with time and the beer sweetens up some finishing enjoyable.

Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a clear gold color with a decent sized head of white foam. The nose is sweet and grainy, but otherwise nondescript. Pretty smooth on the tongue with notes of sweet grain, light hops on the back end, and some alcohol. Reminds me of a top shelf malt liquor. Not bad but I am hard pressed to think of occasions where this is what I would reach for. JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle, 22 oz. Clear golden with a small white head. Sweet malty aroma with faint flowery notes.. Flavor is sweet malty with a nice flowery light hoppy finish. Full bodied lager-like. OK, but nothing I would purchace if I saw in a bar or a pub. jeremytoni (3073) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2011
From a bottle poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Sweet malty flavor with a lingering aftertaste. sloth (2910) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Small white head, short lived with minimal lace. Clear gold/light copper hued brew. Nose is sweet malts, honey and a hint of maze. Body is light, dead carbonation, cloying on the palate, tongue coating. Some sweet malt flavors, little hop grassyness, grainyness. Sweet, malty finish with a weird astringency, asperiny. Arf. Bomber from statelineliquors.

Bottle. Light to moderate grain and perfume for the malt and hops, with hints of alcohol, solvent, vinegar and light dried fruit. head is small, fizzy, white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is sparkling clear light amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, the finishes moderately sweet, lightly acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a soft carbonation and a lightly astringent and moderately alcoholic finish. Not too much to this Imperial Pilsener, the flavors are out of balance, the aroma is simple and off in spots, the mouthfeel is flat and it just doesn’t have a very good appearance.

Thin bright white head of varying sized bubbles. Light lemon bread aroma with some cellulose, cereal grains and rotting grass. Color is a clear golden brown. Clean smooth flavor with some bready malts, more lemon, some corn and a decent dry bitterness late swallow. Not very flavorful. Kind of sticky finish. An ok lager. Little more body than a typical mass procuded lager but not much more flavor. dlovell2 (2166) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Poured from 22oz bottle. Pours clear golden color with creamy white head. Spicy yeast and hop aroma. Real light malt flavor with hop and yeast finish. Slight spicy clove in the finish. Very smooth feel in mouth. This beer is very crisp and clean and leaves no aftertaste. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.0 A: Clear medium yellow color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is average and no lacing is left.
4.0 S: Super grainy with a sweet grassiness. Vanilla wafer through and through. Part herbal, part earthy, party spicy hop aroma. A damn good smelling cream ale.
3.5 T: Tastes good for a cream ale too. White rice, vanilla wafer, grainy malts. Low bitterness. Earthy hop flavor for the most part. Not bad for what it is.
3.5 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Mix of crisp and creamy.
3.5 D: Cream ales aren’t the best style, but a lot of breweries manage to make decent ones nonetheless. Good drinkibility.

(22 oz from Oak Street Provisions) Golden, just a bit of haze. Three or four fingers of off-white head. Sweet honey-vanilla aroma with floral and fruity hops. Smooth, lightly prickly palate. Flavor is sweet and malty with medium bitterness overlaying. Honey-caramel and vanilla with hints of licorice and hay. Not really hot but ABV is noticeable. Nice bitter hit in finish. Kind of a nice, brash imperfect big lager. I enjoyed drinking it.
