Served in a FFF shaped-glass.
A: Poured out a crystal clear, solid gold color with a finger or so frothy white head that clung to the glass and then some. About as pilsener-esque and you can get appearance-wise.
S: Sweet bready malts, with a touch of bread yeast thrown in for safe measure. Really good!
T: Straight forward German malt component which is great. The sweetness is definitely in the "American" end of the spectrum, but I still dug it.
M: Not syrupy,and the sweetness was played very well with the German contribution hitting all the right notes. The lacing was ridiculous.
O: The style concept "Imperial Pilsener" has always been an anomile to me. Isn't a pilsener supposed to be crisp and something you can drink a lot of? Nevertheless, this was a nice example of the style. One more note: I wouldn't consider a brew clocking in at only 5.6% "Imperial."

A- Clear golden yellow body and a white foam cap of head. Constant stream of bubbles.
A- Clean malt light grassy hops.
T- Grainy sweet malt with a light bitterness that comes through more and sticks around in the finish. Not much in the way of hop flavor.
M- Medium body and smooth with an appropriate level of carbonation.
D- It's not bad, but there are better pilsners out there.
