3.53/5 rDev -6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Poured from the bottle into a Sierra Nevada pint glass. Body is clear dark golden with a small white head that's gone quickly. No real lace left behind.
S: Some florally hops and a faint smell of cat pee over cereal grains, but also some fruity sweetness.
T: Surprisingly sweet for a pilsner; I get a certain fruitiness that reminds me of an ale yeast. Some grassy hops at the finish, and a faint lingering bitterness. Some spice at the end as well.
M: Call it lighter side of medium in heft. Carbonation is faint, makes this one a little slick in feel for a pilsner, though in feel it does seem to deserve the "imperial" moniker - which
doesn't seem appropriate given the 5.6% ABV.
O: This is only OK with me. Not sure what it's supposed to be, as the color screams pilsner, and the grassy and florally hops go along with that. However, the fruity sweetness and slicker feel make me think more of an ale.

3.49/5 rDev -7.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
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.
