look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: pours a hazy, deep golden liquid into my tulip. Loads of foam and lacing on the glass.
S: dry smell, typical hoppy pilsner smell with citrus and pine. Think a got a little funky smell as well.
T: dry with a bit of carapils giving it a bit of sweetness to. Tastes of citrus, caramell, pine, rasin. Short, bitter aftertaste. Some booze as well.
M: feels light in my mouth, some fizzy bubbles, good bitterness and quite light body. A bit of the 8 abv stays in my mouth.
O: above average pilsner, not as good as American dream or raid beer but really nice if you're looking for a strong and hoppy (and somewhat boozy) pilsner. Well done!

pleased to find this at Davidsons on county line, a new spot for me, and a new mikkeller, brilliant! billed a malt liquor, im not sure what to expect. it pours a familiar looking English malty tannish brown color, with some golden hues and an inch or two of lazy white head. the nose is malts forward, and rather alcoholic for the 8% abv its listed at, but with an interesting twist of fruit in there, oranges, candied, I don't know. the flavor agrees, malt forward, not too sweet through, with some fruit and booze on the back end. its a little thinner than I want it to be, but the flavors work really well. its got an almost pilsner malt flavor to it, dry and European, but it also has some caramel sweetness. its not complex, but it isn't simple either, sort of a hard beer to put into context. fine carbonation above a medium body. the finish is spirited, and I get a touch of brown sugar as it goes out. overall a beer worth the 14 bucks I paid for it this time, but probably not one ill buy again, despite really enjoying its grain profile and drinkability.

On-tap at Mikkeller and Friends Bar in Copenhagen. Served in a 20cl Mikkeller glass...

A: Hazy gold; white head; retention leaves some patchy sheets of lace.

S: Light resin hoppiness; citrus peel; nice hop aroma.

T: Cracker malts; light resin and citrus hops, as in nose.

M: Medium-bodied; higher carbonation; refreshing feel.

O: Whoa - this is one easy drinking imperial pilsner! Hard to believe it's 8%. I'd definitely have this again if I have the opportunity...
