0.33l bottle from beermarket.hu. Hazy pale golden colour, white head, not very big but dense and persistent. Silky. Aroma is fruity, maybe peach, maybe sweet orange. Sweetish anyway. Taste is bittersweet, fruity, honey. Mild but long lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. Palate is silky, mild with moderate carbonation. Interesting, but somewhat strange composition: fruity aromas clearly separate it from real pilsners, but it is way to sweet and "lagerish" for an IPA. Will not be my favourite, but definitely worths a try... PowY (982) - AUSTRIA - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark yellow to light golden. The aroma is grainy and grassy. Medium body with a smooth texture, a light sweetness and medium bitterness. The flavor is malty (grains, caramel) and hoppy (grass).

Many thanks to Werckmeister for this bottle! Batch 8. Smooth malty-sweetish beginning. Intense but not too deep. Fresh with malt and caramel on a very sweetish-grainy basis. Moderate bitter aftertaste wth lots of sweetish grain on the tongue. Even a bit rough. Unround. VsXsV (4528) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2015

UPDATED: APR 20, 2015 bottle at home from trade with Sebilinz, thanks :) dark yellow color, looks filtered, by very lightly hazy. medium big off-white head. smells yeasty, fruity, grassy, light grainy, some herbs, mint, light ash. nice smell. medium to full body, slick mouthfeel, medium carbonation, tastes of grass, grains, herbal, peppermint, thyme, light fruity, some very light sweetness. overall the finish is more bitter / light herbal though. the herbs work very well in this brew, sweet and bitterness is quite well-balanced. quite good. good taste and quite easy to drink.

330 ml bottle, batch 8 (hops: Mühlviertler Tettnanger, Saphir, Galaxy, Topaz), from Bottle Shop, Salzburg.
Deep golden, clear body, with a medium, creamy, lacing, white head.
Aroma of grass, hay, fresh herbs, citrus, tangerine, some sweet malts.
Taste follows this pretty much.
Medium, quite oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, quite dry, with grass, herbs, lemon zest.
Enjoyable, fresh Imperial Pils. Nice combination of grass and herb notes, with fruity hops. Not the best beer of this style I’ve had, but definitely the best Imperial Pils from Austria in my opinion.
