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.

Rising carbonation bubbles in a medium yellow body, with soapy head. Good dirty blonde yeasty aroma.Citrus taste, good IBu, smooth, dry finish. I liked it as only a minority of saaz, despite fresh assertive carbonation,

Name: BC Imperial Pilsner (43)
Date: September 04, 2012
Mode: Bottle
Source: Appachelian Vinters, Asheville
Appearance: clear gold, frothy white head, bits of drippy lace
Aroma: big floral hop aroma with spicy notes, slightly sweet pale malt, touch of cereal grains
Flavor: sweet malt flavor, cereal, lots of balancing spicyness, floral hops, well placed bitterness leaves a long bitter finish
Overall: not super sweet like most imperial pilsners but rather a fuller and more rounded pilsner

"I dunno why they call this an imperial pilsner when its only 5.6%, but by the 2nd or 3rd sip... I dont care. For a normal abv pils, its very nice. A little on the crisp hoppy side, like I like em, with a backbone of bread, especially in the nose. The feel was a strongpoint as the beer did a little jig on the tongue."

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - SEP 9, 2012
355mL. Pours a clear yellow, macro lager gold. Larger, dense, pillowy white head. Thick formation, great retention, webby to soapy lacing. Nose is sweeter grain, some funky sour cherry, lemon drops, sweet juice box. Taste is very nice- small alcohol, some coconut oil, lighter mango juice box, sharper sourdough cracker. Palate is super soft, relaxed, thicker, oily. Finish is clean, sweeter, some coconut dessert. Wow.

j12601 (9799) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours a fairly clear gold with a medium sized white head. Big musky grain on the nose, crisp noble hops, dusty and musky. The grain is so deep that it picks up a nutty quality. Medium bodied, grainy and smooth, toast and a light touch of warming alcohol. Long grain, a touch of lemon, faint musk and grain.
