Bomber from a friend at Karl Strauss. Color is a golden amber with minimal white head. Aroma is grassy hops with a little bit of citrus. Taste fades pretty quickly. Finishes dry.
"supes up a traditional pilsner more true to style than some imperials i’ve had - which is both good and bad. this was a good beer for sure. but nothing i’ll be jonesing to have again right away. cereal malt and grassy hops on the nose. flavor is both sweet and grassy, with a bit of spice as well. medium bodied, pretty smooth. Surprisingly a little blander on tap."

Bottle:   Orangish straw, bright, moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Strong sweet grassy nose.   Very similar on the tongue.   A touch mealy, but has enough bitterness to balance it out.   Body and
mouthfeel are smooth yet moderate.   Clean finish, grassy, a bit thick.   Hard to tell this is 7.5% for a Strong Pils.   Nothing to write home about, but clean, and very easy to drink.   Very respectable. SDalkoholic (2375) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a thick layer of frothy foamed head while the liquid was a golden straw color. Aroma was somewhat mild with a heavy presence of malts and grassy hops that actually did smell like an imperial pils. The flavor was grassy as well with a background of honey oat wheat bread and a healthy serving of hops considering this was an American made pils. There is also a background of funky yeast that was interesting to try upon the first bottle, but after drinking another bottle it played itself out. For sure I won’t be repeating this beer, but at least I gave it a second chance. crossovert (12642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Imperial pils, it is an oxymoron. This one is sweet, like a pils version of a malt liquor. saxo (18208) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2012
Tap @ the brewpub, San Diego. Medium head with medium duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are sweet malt, notes of almonds, grass and hops.

Draft: Strong complex, crisp and clean. Nice hop presence. Food Pairing: Cheese fondue. rayOfBeer (674) - El Cerrito, California, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Bottle: pours blond with a medium sized white head and a slight haze. Aroma is bready with some dry grass, light honey, and a little citrus. Flavor is bready malt with hay and other soft tart/bitter grass notes, a little doughy yeast, and a touch of honey. Palate has a mouthfull of sweet malt mingling with some nice grassy bitters. Nice flavors, a bit heavy, but well balanced. Thisis12ptfont (1173) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Aromas of yeast, dough and subtle lemon. Appearance is a deep gold with a decent foam top. Flavors of sweet yeast and oats with some caramel malts. Lightly carbonated with a light texture on the palate. Overall, this is a decent beer with fairly simple flavoring and a nice alcohol warming feeling. I’d give this a C+ rating.

Nice, but confusing. Light amber with hops on the nose. Medium bodied and it drinks like a sweet malty English ale or a bock. Great finish. I’d never guess a Pilsner if served blind. hayduke (5188) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. This poured a hazy light orange with a long lasting foamy white head and a lot of lacing. Attractive. The nose is light malt with a hoppy citrus aroma. Medium in body and smooth in mouthfeel. Flavor is tasty, with some cirrus and flowers. Some light bitterness in the finish. A very drinking brew, and you do not know it is an imperial as the alcohol is well hidden.
