Bottle. Pours with a clear golden body and a large white head. Aromas of bitter, spicy, herbal noble hops. Very pungent hoppiness. Light sweetness, and breadiness. Some fruit coming from the hops as well (I guess, it isnt the lager yeast). Taste is bready, nutty, herbal, grassy, spicy, sticky noble hops. Very abrupt and clean finish. Finishes [thankfully] nice and dry, with a lingering delicate malt profile. Well crafted, but I dont absolutely love it. Not bad though. Lively bubbles.

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.

Bottle thanks deadgirl. Golden orange pour with some tan head. Grassy and light noble bittering hops, toasted malt flavor and caramel flavors and aroma.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
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.

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.

Sampled on 8/20/2010. This Imperial Pilsner pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head with nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and sweet, graint and grassy. A medium to full bodied imperial pilsner. The malts are fruity and sweet, a touch cereal and grainy. The hops are herbal and earthy, with a touch of spiciness. Nice balance. Decent carbonation. A touch sweet perhaps, and would like it to be a little spicier. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

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 isnt 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

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.
