COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The mellow malt in this Imperial Pilsner is married with a clean sharp bitterness from a blend of four hop varieties. Crisp and refreshing with a touch of delicate noble hops to linger on the palette.

Thanks to Caro for this birthday present. Looks handsome in the glass with its bold golden hue, large fluffy slowly diminishing head and rich lacing. A little weak on aroma at Monteiths recommended 8 degrees; floral hops, caramel, biscuit, citrus, cardboard, bandaid. Moderately sweet, moderate to moderate-heavy bitter. Alcohol numbing palette [sic] creamy almost lightly chewy. Second half paired ok with a Baigan bhartha Indian curry. One of the best Monteiths I have had though nothing to rave about here. Couldn’t help but add this: pal·ette /ˈpalit/ Noun A thin board or slab on which an artist lays and mixes colors. The range of colors used by a particular artist or in a particular picture. Synonyms pallet

Mousse rapide, carbonation moyenne, amertume bien équilibrée qui reste bien en arrière bouche, blonde assez intéressante en goût avec une personnalité que l'on ne trouve pas dans les lager (que je n'aime pas en général)

An unpleasant wet grass and hay aroma, pours a clear golden color with a lasting white head with nice lacing. A refreshing taste slightly sweet and crisp with notes of grain and nuts with a medium body and a grainy lightly bitter finish.

Nazwa imperial pilsner mnie zaintrygowała i potanowiłem spróbować tego specyfiku. Wyraźna goryczka, piana i mieszanka 4 chmieli dały bardzo pozytywny efekt, nie wiem tylko na ile to się łapie pod definicję pilznera ;)

Tastes like a continental lager, but with American pale ale style hops. Unfortunately not as good as either.

Must be a stale batch - no head and tastes like Lion Red, which is not a good thing. Monteith’s, are you going to sort me out with a replacement so I can judge it properly? I tipped it down the drain

A fine drop. Well deserved Imperial name - with its 7% ABV. Good hops evident. Will have another one in preference to that rubbish from Speights.

Muggus69 (2723) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2014
500mL bottle BB 05/14 Pours a pale orange straw body, big foam atop. Restrained sort of nose; floral hop, touch of spice, with some oxidised malts & overly ripe stonefruit. Soft carbonation, kind of syrupy, chalky, soap, touch odd. Alcohol apparent. Falls to bits on the body; oxidised malty notes of browned apple & cardboard, bit whack of corny DMS, some floral hop but bitterness is abrasive, fusel alcohol finish. Had some promise, lost it - poorly made, unnecessarily strong.

Bottle from Cellarbrations November 2013. Dark amber colour when poured into the glass. This is a beer that has a decent flavour and is full in the mouth.
