This beer pours a very bright gold color, clear, with a thinnish layer of foam on top. The nose is a bit weak for a beer labeled imperial, but offers a pleasant helles type malt and light floral hops. Flavor is better, giving a very dry taste (both from attenuation and from hops) that allows hops to speak with a nice floral voice. Malt is present but not a significant contributor. Very clean profile. Body is a bit heavier than a normal pils, but not significantly. Decent beer, though it doesn't really live up to the "imperial" note. I'd probably call it a maisbock if I tasted it blindly.

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.
