COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Intergalactical Imperial lager was brewed by Ben (Bridge Road Brewers, 50 Ford Street, Beechworth VIC 3747, Australia) & Urbain @ Struise, as a superb collaborative effort between both breweries and Simply Hops (Hop Pocket Lane, Paddock Wood, Tonbridge, Kent, TN12 6DQ, UK). While Ben shared his Australian Lager brewing techniques, Simply Hops procured us with Fresh Galaxy hop flowers. Only 4 ingredients were used, Vleteren water, German pilsner malt, Australian Galaxy Hops and Weihenstephan yeast. This lager not only bottom fermented, but also matured on its own bed of C02 for six months.

Not bad even though its a little bit heavy and sweet for a Pilsner. Notwithstanding its a an "Imperial".

tommann (3669) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours hazy dark orange gold with a small head. Aroma is malty mango and minerals. Taste has sticky hop oils to start and a stony, minerally finish.

Grzesiek79 (4247) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 27, 2017
Bottle 330ml from www.smakpiwa.pl. Piwo ma spora czape sniezno-bialej piany, dosc dlugo trwalej. Normalka jesli chodzi o browarnikow od Struise. Jasna barwa typowa dla lagera czy pilsnera, lekko wzmocnione alkoholem. Nie przepadam za tym stylem bo jest nijaki i dominuje alkohol, Tu choc lekko wyczuwalny nie przeszkadzal, ale nic specjalnego i oszalamiajacego sie nie doszukalem. Styl typowy dla alkoholikow ale ten nieco sie wyroznia jakosciowo.

Bottle shared @Pułapka, Gdańsk

Honey and wet cardboard aroma. Clean pilsner-like character though the cardboard and honey makes it unpleasant.

BlazerT (1050) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Hard to rate. This beer is situation when Dubbel meets Czech pilsener. The brew is sweet with quite strong hoppy/bitter notes. Aroma is connection between organic-sugary-like sweetness with not really nice, dirty malty profile. In other words nose is somehow like straight, regular lager from supermarket. All in all not that bad, as other describe here - drinkable, very pilsener like with strong hoppy accents and potent sweetness.

Generalnie totalna porażka, słodka, ulepkowata, miodowa szmata. Trochę wstyd dla Strusi.

Bottle at Ratebeer Best. Pours a hazy yellow with medium white head that lasts. The aroma is strong grass, citrus, bready malt. Medium body, toasted malt, citrus, grass, boozy finish, good.
