COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Produced especially for the OBF, Beer Camp’s golden color and medium bodied sweetness comes from pale, Europils, Munich and acidulated malts. Magnum, Crystal and Pacifica hops provide a distinctly American bittering and hop flavor profile without going over the top. The result is a refreshing, balanced, crisp pilsner, easy to drink on a hot summer festival day - or to take with you to beer camp.

12 oz. bottle from Beer Camp mix pack. Pours a clear gold with rocky, very frothy head. Nose holds spicy hops, touches of sourdough bread, rye, and some nice grassy bite. Flavor is much of the same, with interesting grainy dig to the flavor, more peppercorn and touches of hibiscus. Smooth, drinkable, pretty tasty.

Gold pour with a white head. Yeasty and grainy in the nose. Sweet and malty with some earthy hops. Nice little bite in the finish.

Clear, pale, golden with a big rocky off-white head. Lots of hops; aroma of citrus, earth, bread, grain, and flowers. It tastes moderately bitter, with a nice balance from the pale malt. Crisp, medium bodied, and moderately dry.

For me, this was a great example of a pilsner, great for a summer night. My second tasting of this year’s Beer Camp definitely does not disappoint.

Poured into a giant pilsner glass, this is refreshing, crisp, and pleasantly hoppy. Reminisant of victorys summer love. Pours a golden hay, head is massive when dumped in the glass then settles to a thin rim hovering in the drink. Taste is earthy hoppy, bitter, and refreshingly mild. Not hooked on the name but this works for me.

Bottle from Windy City. Light grassy hop nose. Crisp and very clean. Nice hoppiness. Very rich and flavorful but still quite refreshing. Nice for a summer day.

Nice floral hop notes start this beer off, which pours a clear light straw, with a full white head. Clean crisp floral notes, and very light on the palate. Not quite sure why this is called an Imperial Pilsner. This is one I’d like to see become a regular offering.

Aroma is sweet malty citrus light hop. Beautifully intergrated. Dark gold with smal white ring. Just Enough malt, just enough hop, and some slight czechness. Hoppy citrus fruit malty sweetness. Tasty.

Pours with a light straw color and light off-white head. Very mild aroma - picking up mild floral hop aroma, but definitely not from any noble hops. First taste imparts a slippery mouthfeel with the classic pilsner maltiness - picking up the subtle Munich malt as well. Hop profile is distinctly American - lacks the earthiness I prefer in a pilsner. Taste is crisp, but does impart a unique aftertaste.

thicksuds (449) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Nice pour, great foam, nice golden color, taste is good, but really tastes more like a pils to me and is missing the imperial aspect. I was expecting something a little more strong, a little more flavorful. Ranking as a pils alone its a little above average, crisp, clean and refreshing.
