Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2007
Rich gold color, clear and crisp. Small white head. Grainy, bready flavor with a nice boost from bittering floral hops. Alcohol nicely masked in this amazing beer. Not a typical pils, but quite nicely crafted. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café: Golden in color, slightly fiery, moderate frothy off-white head, fairly sticky lacing, strong
carbonation. Mealy nose, certainly malty, but also a fairly strong hop aspect. Even a slight floral hint. Seems decent
enough. Forwardly hoppy, a little bit of heat, decent malt background. Not as flavorful as the nose suggested but still quite
good. Fairly clean. This certainly feels like an Imperial Pilsner. More hops than most. Body and mouthfeel are full
to moderate. Warming finish. I enjoyed this one even if it was a little abrasive. Will probably mellow with time. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 28, 2008
On tap at Capone’s. Pours a hazy golden orange with a medium creamy/bubbly white head that left some lacing. Aroma of sweet almost candy like maltiness, citrus, floral and lightly spicy hop notes and honey nut cheerios. Flavor of spicy, citrusy notes. Noble hops, lots of malty sweetness, but finishes dry. Hop bitterness is there, light alcohol and grainy notes. Iced tea flavor as it warmed up. hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 25, 2008
At the brewpub, this was a cloudy orange, with small white pub head and light lacing. Nose of malts and citrus hops. Rich mouttfeel. Flavor is mostly citrus and pine hops, and the finish is nicely bitter. Hides the alcohol well. Easy drinking for such a high alcohol beer. BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2008

Aroma – Nice decent hops and malt aroma.
Appearance – Golden in color, clear with a light head.
Flavor – A very nice pilsner flavor. Has a good balance of malts and hops. Strong alcohol flavor also.
Palate – Good Mouthfeel, Nice texture with a dry finish.
Overall – Good Pilsner flavor this was a good beer for the night.
Aroma has some hop oil, ranging from nail polish remover-like scents to some floral aromas. A little boring and unusual in appearance, with a flat look, a little collar with a cloudy golden color. A very good malt undertone with biting hop qualities and some sharpness in flavor. Very nutty and somewhat velvety finish and a bit of the bitter. redlight (2325) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Fruity aroma, some citrusy notes, clean and spicy. Pours rich gold color with a thick white head. Crisp, cereal, great pilsner flavor, kicked up a notch. One of the better imperial pils i’ve had actually. Suttree (6504) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Cloudy orange, thin white head. Smells kind of sweet and sour. Its heavy - overly so, actually - and sweet at first, then a nice bitter finish. On tap, Barley’s Aheville. Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 7, 2007
On tap at the Federal in Durham, NC. Orange color resembles an IPA more than a pils. Slightly cloudy. Big white head. Earthy hops with a touch of lemon grass in the aroma. Malty flavor with a touch of hops and a surprisingly dry finish that gets harsh by the end of the gllass. Ain’t nothing wrong with this one. marcus (10669) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 7, 2007
On tap at Vino’s in Roseville, CA. I really don’t like pilsners, but this one was actually pretty good. The taste starts off a bit sweet, then turns bitter at the finish. The body is surprisingly strong and malty for this type of beer.
