3.6/5 rDev -4.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
First impressions upon opening are of an incredibly aromatic, crystal clear, golden pilsner. The taste disappointed slightly, the hops seemed much to subtle for a beer with 'Imperial' in the name, and clearly 5.6% alcohol does not live up to the name either. WIth that said, it is a very well-made German style pilsner and I will have no trouble finishing off all three in the case. Nothing about this beer is 'Imperial'.
Hops - Herbal, small spice, slight citrus zest. Very much a blend of the traditional noble hop flavors and more tropical IPA varieties.
Malt - Very sublte sweetness, but rich enough to keep the beer balanced.

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.
