Pours a bright yellow gold color with a pillow of head that dissipated to a solid but thin cap. The nose is of lemon, grass, herbs and crisp crackery malts. Sweetness hits the tongue up front with some zesty lemon followed herbs and lightly grassy bitterness. The sips ends with some spicy and zesty bitterness that leaves the mouth watering and with a slightly lingering bitterness. The 9.0% abv is well hidden. This one could be trouble if your not careful.
This is a very good impy pilsner. I like the hoppy character but could use a bit more of it. rhialistic (156) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 31, 2012
From bomber. Pours a somewhat cloudy bright gold with a small white head. Aromas of sweet corn, spice/herbs, grass, orange dominate. Sweet cereal malts, orange, hay, corn round out the flavor. ABV is hidden well as the beer is smooth with a light/medium body. Sweet finish with a little breadiness and hops at the tail end. TampaBeer (257) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Nice fresh clean flavors here - with the sweetness of an ipa which makes this better than just a pilsner. Silky, draft-like palate is especially nice - slightly creamy finish. PorterPounder (7965) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - cage corked 750 ml bottle. Slightly hazy dark golden with a nice thick, sticky off-white head with a nice film of lacing. Aroma has some buttery and vanilla notes, a hint of yeast. Full bodied flavor with some nice raw cake mix accents, a bit of honey sweetness, some buttery notes. Nice full mouthfeel. Put off buying this as I figured I would come across it on tap on my trip to Utah - no such luck. Darkmagus82 (2302) - - AUG 28, 2014
Transfer from BA review on 2-24-13-
Poured from 750 ml bottle into a fluted glass
Appearance- The beer pours an orange amber color with a big and billowy just-off white head. The head has a fantastic level of retention, very slowly fading to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell- The aroma is big on malty aromas with a lot of pilsner malt smells. Mixed with this aroma is a yeasty and haylike aroma as well. Some lighter notes of light fruit (apple, pear, and peach) are also there with a rather strong melon aroma. The melon smell is a strange one, being a mix of honeydew and casaba melon with some almost fermented melon smells mixed within.
Taste- The taste begins with a sweet melon and caramel and a very malty body. Some flavors of other fruits enter the tongue quickly with apple being the strongest, but mixed with some tangerine and peach. A haylike and funky flavor come to the tongue more toward the middle where they knock down the sweeter flavors. At the end some flavors of alcohol and more haylike ad grassy flavors come to the tongue with an increase in the sweetness with more melon tastes. In the end, all the flavors mix to leave a funky and fruity malted flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel - The body of the beer is on the chewier and thicker side with a carbonation level that is average to just above average. The chewiness is very nice for the malty flavors of the brew as well as oddly quite complimenting of the melon flavors of the brew. The carbonation does a good job of keeping the beer quite easy drinking, yet not overshadowing or hiding any of the interesting flavors of the brew.
Overall- This was a rather interesting brew. The aroma with its fermenting melon smells was slightly off putting, but not totally so (somewhat intriguing). Its taste was rather unique with a fascinating mixture of flavors and transitions. I kind of liked the odd flavor profile and while it is not something I would go frequently, it is worth a try and a time to time go to.

750 ml bottle thanks to the guys at Uinta and Eric. Pours a totally clear golden color with a medium bubbly white head. The aroma is sweet honey, distinct Saaz hops, fruity. The flavor is smooth and clean; a lively mouthfeel, sweet malty goodness, light hops, dry with light spices. A really nice smooth Pilsner with lots of flavor and quite a hefty alcohol content despite how smooth it is. KimJohansen (10492) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2010
Clear golden with a small off white head. Aroma had plenty of fruity hops, malt and hints of pine. Hoppy flavor with pine, grapefruits and malty notes. Finished dry and bitter. jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bottle shared with jcwattsrugger. Pours clear lemon yellow with white head. Nose of lemon, pine and malts. Taste of banana, lemon, clove and pine. Interesting beer. patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Bottle. 25.4 oz. Split with my Dad and Uncle Mark to celebrate the life of my Mom-Mom. Pours a shimmery, bubbled copper with a one-finger, sturdy, lacy off-white head. Aroma of fresh pressed grapes, cut grass, banana, sweet corn, honey, and slight lemon zest. Medium to light bodied. The body is not very supportive, but the crisp, biting carbonation makes up for the thinness. Sweet, slightly bitter palate. Hints of grapes and hay in the flavor. Finishes with a sugary-sweet dryness, similar to ginger ale. Very cool style and an even cooler beer. nuplastikk (6255) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2011
750ml split with the Madison crew. Filtered orange-yellow. Buttery aroma and taste, maybe aged too long. Not much hop content, golden smooth lager tones, some mild alcohol tones. Mildly soapy, but just too much of a butter tone to fully enjoy. Grows on you after awhile, and is oddly true to the Eastern European style.
