Strykzone (7357) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Bomber from Hayduke. We shared it via facebook chat. This poured with a bit of copper but was mostly gold. It was also well carbonated. A but of fruit in the nose and some interesting hop note. The flavor was also gentle fruit with some sweetness and very light bitterness. Something Ike necter, too. This was an improvement over other impy pilsners.

fresh bottle from Texas Liquor (in Carsblad, Cal.) Very easy to drink hoppy beer. An understated bitterness that was most pleasant during a long luncheon. Mild hoppy aromas. Some citrus, medium mouthfeel, and one-quarter inch of retained head on cloudy lightly orange body. Satisfying, not heavy, sure not a double IPA and cannot be held up to that sort of hop assault.

Interesting, yet pretty basic taste. Almost more of a wheat beer or light belgian then a pils. Pours golden, and has a malty taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear dark yellow with a fizzy white head. Musty cereal grain aroma and an earthy cereal grain taste.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a decent lacing head. Strong, grassy aroma with some malt in the background. Slight sweet taste. Crisp. Could be stronger for an imperial pils, but still not bad.

nimbleprop (8382) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 30, 2011
22oz bottle pours a transparent gold with some spitty white head. This does not smell good. Smells like rotting corn, like a corn cob that fell onto the ground and got wet. Very sugary aroma too. Flavor has honey, corn sugar mixed with water, malty, overly chewed bubblegum. Full bodied, bland, sugary, white bread finish.

3.7
marcus (10227) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 20, 2011
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours cloudy golden with a thick off-white head and a floral aroma. There is a hearty roasted malt flavor with some toffee and a dry bitter finish. Very tasty.

emacgee (4676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with almost no head. Nose is a vegetal/DMS bomb, spicy and mildly phenolic. Bready with a mild bite and spicy hop feel. Medium body and bitterness.

TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2011
Bottle from LtDan. Thanks! Hazy orange with a thick white head. Nose is nice and surprisingly dry with fresh saaz, honey, some sweeter malts as it warms. Flavor is sweeter, some chalky notes, saaz, grassy and sweet finish.

Thanks to a generous individual for getting this bottle out to me. Served in a tulip. Pours a clear light apricot color with a thin white head that quickly falls down into a few bubbles. Thin collar throughout. The nose is lightly grainy without too much depth. Some bready malt and not much in the way of hops. The flavor is bready with some light grain in the background. Hop bitterness comes through on the backend, though isn’t really present in the flavor. Medium body with high carbonation and a bit of an alcohol bite in the finish. Decent enough, though not my favorite. Serving type: bottle
