3.85/5 rDev -4.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
A- Thick white head on a really cloudy orange golden body.
S- Lots of grass hops in the nose. Hints of malt with a bit of the yeast coming through in the nose.
T- The only other Imperial Pilsner I have had is the Sam Adams one so needless to say I was expecting a lot more hops in this. Grass hops come through with a caramel body to balance them out. Yeast comes through it all a bit staying around for the aftertaste too. Seems a little bland in flavor especially for 8.8%ABV. Smaller bitterness is left behind in the aftertaste with some of the caramel from the malts too.
M- Medium to full body with really low smooth carbonation.
D- It is easy to drink but just pretty bland tasting besides the bitterness from hops afterward. I would think this would be a great beer if it was sold in 6-packs for $6-8. I will probably not buy this again but I wouldn't mind a bottle for free at all.
