DraftDodger (1958) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2018
Copenhagen 25/3 2018. 35,5 cl bottle from Mikkeller web shop. As "Killa Pilz Imperial Lager". Some kind of Howling Monster made out of Leafs on the label. Pours hazy, golden yellow with small white head. Settles as 1,5 cm thick layer of foam covering the surface of the beer as a blanket. Massive lacing. Aroma is sweet malts and fruity pear with lighter and weaker bitter notes. Soft yet prickly carbonation and fat, creamy texture. Flavor is quite strong hiding the fairly high ABV. Medium sweetness followed by strong bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter. Lingering. Reminds me of a traditional Czech Pilsner - with an extra kick. tderoeck (11163) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 9, 2018
2/XII/17 - on tap @ Billies Craft Beer Festival - BB: n/a (2017-2064) Thanks to the Belgian, Dutch and German ratebeerians for sharing today's beers!superspak (6658) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2018
Clear pale blond beer, small creamy white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very malty, grains, hay, cow fodder. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: very bitter, grains, malty, hay, metallic finish. Aftertaste: dry, grains,bitter finish.
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy medium golden/yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit dough, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of earthy hops and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big lemon, orange peel, pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit dough, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7.5%. Overall this is a delicious imperial pilsner. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Really great balance of German malts and noble hops, and not too aggressive. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. klm1 (2178) - Bled/SF, - DEC 15, 2017

Briney grain nose. Hazy orange, medium head, little retention. Grass, grain, intense, bitter. Aspirin finish. Light body, moderate carbonation, powdery mouthfeel. Different, yes. Quaffable, no. Enjoyable, not really. IBUs must be off the charts and not in a good way. Beerhunter111 (24340) - Beerland, GERMANY - DEC 4, 2017

(Thank you!) Sampled draft @ Billie's Craft Beer Fest 2017. Golden, white head. Nose is nice green grass hop, oily clean lager, mellow corn profile. Taste is oily white pepper, wheat, clean, lingering mellow grass, oily corn, very nicely done. Quite liked it, liked it more than most of their other overhyped style at the festival.
