MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Nearly golden slightly orange color w/ a small white head and some light soapy lacing. Avg Pal. The flavor is lightly doughy w/ a nice slightly bitter clean citrus & floral hop finish. Some nice sweetness both caramels and fruits the bread like tone is subtle but nice. The aroma is similar definite dry hoppy hints of some light floral pieces, with a light touch of sweet breads. Very easy to drink, and easily the best "pilsner" Ive tasted.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2010 650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a translucent copper color with a big white fluffy head that has good retention and some lacing. The aroma is mild and indistinct with grains, yeast and some saaz hops. The flavor features biscuit, dough, yeast, nutty hops and mildly funky hops. The palate is a bit light but builds to a malty conclusion. The finish is short and dry. Overall: I find this pils a very refreshing choice. Much more like a good English biter than a pils--whatever the hell this it was the right beer at the right time.

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 wont be repeating this beer, but at least I gave it a second chance.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 1, 2011
[Bottle] Clear copper hue, decent head formation. Sugarry caramel aroma, light cooked corn. Sweet caramel, hard boiled sugar candy intro before a fair bitter hoppiness in the finish (that IPA bitterness rather than pilsener). Even with the bitterness theres still a big, almost sherry like sweetness towards the end. Looks like many have rated this well but I found it to be a strange mixture.

monk191 (1937) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 20, 2012
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

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 12, 2010
Appearance: Pours a clear amber tinted yellow gold. The head is large, beige and fluffy.

Aroma: Crisp mixture of biscuity malt and euro hops. Nothing like a cheap beer, but more like a fresh, hoppy pilsner.

Taste: Biscuits with honey, big spicy hops. Alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, slightly creamy and moderately carbonated.

Overall: Fresh, this beer is beautifully balanced, slightly sweet, and the driest hoppiest imperial pils Ive had to date. What a great beer.

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.

elihapa (1552) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Bomber. Pours peach-amber, with a surprisingly small head. Aroma has cut grass, mild citrus, and malt. Mouthfeel is soft and a touch on the fuller side. Flavor starts with grassy hop punch, mellows with caramel sweetness, then finishes quickly. A bit indescript for my tastes, though Im finding this new-wave style of Imperial Pilsner to be disappointing in general.
