I was surprised by this beer. I’m not a pilsner guy, but this was highly recommended. From the tap. Pours golden with a dry hopped (cascade?) nose. Thin mouthfeel. Starts like a pilsner, finishes like an IPA, with a hoppy finish that is uncharacteristic of a pilsner but is necessary because of the ABV. I really enjoyed this brew.
On tap @ Rogue SF. Pours clear dark golden with thin creamy off-white head that laces well. Aroma is light sweet pils malt, with a slight corn note throughout. Dry, floral hops on the back. Taste is a big sweet light-bodied malt, boozy and thick. Same floral hops, though they really get overwhelmed by the hefty malt bill. Lingers slightly bitter on the finish. Pretty good as imperial pilsners go. SlackerMads (3360) - DENMARK - AUG 4, 2016
Bottle with Sune and Theis. Hazy golden, medium sized nicely lacing white head. Effervescent. Grain, green plants, dry flowers, booze. Full body, some sweetness, heavy bitter, dry. Ok, but fairly boozy and bitter. sunevdj (4087) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016

Tap. Orange, cloudy, rocky head, tan foam, medium bitterness, full body, oily feel, average carbonation, & long finish. tekstr1der (490) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 3, 2016
One strange brew, this pours a cloudy, headless murky pale gold. Aroma is nice and malty with a sweetness and some floral hop. Flavor is initial malt and some honey up front (nice), but quickly hits with a bitter/astringent bite mid-sip that lasts through the finish and leaves the throat dry.

Swing-top bottle, Ale House, Chelmsford, SX Bottle Share, 1st December 2015
White lacing. Golden semi-hazy appearance. Aroma is huge spices, some grain, musty sweaty socks. Taste is spices, sweet caramel, malty body, oxidation. Ok but not amazing, maley1 (1273) - Calgary, CANADA - OCT 15, 2015
Hazy golden amber pour with small off white head. Aroma of malts, hops, caramel, slightly floral and grains. Taste of malts, hops, slight caramel, grains and slight citrus. Full bodied, lower carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, crisp hop finish. A little boozy up front but a delicious beer! Iphonephan (6989) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2015
