Pours a golden color with a white head. Strong biscuit aroma, a touch of cracker, and lots of bread. A floral and lightly herbal hop profile, maybe a slight spiciness to it as well. The flavor is quite heavy on the sweetness. Bread, biscuit, and lots of cracker malt favors. Theres a nice floral hoppiness, some mild citrus peel, and a solid spicy hop flavor. Quite drinkable.

Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was lasting and produced excellent lacing. Good moderate to heavy complex hop and malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.

Sample at the DBLDP on 09/02/2012: Clear bright yellow pour with a medium thin white head that dissipates quickly to a wispy film. Spotty lacing. The aroma is lightly hopped with some citrus and herbal notes. Light to medium body with a grassy hops character and notes of bready malt and citrus. The finish is moderately bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

It is an imperial pilsener... Dont know why they feel the urge to brew these but the imperialization ruins what the style has going for it. This is one fo the better done ones though.
