From Porters Northwood. Great little shop, btw.
Pours a clear yellow, just textbook lager. Fine head/lacing.
Smells a textbook lager smell- lots of grain. Then there's some punchy citrus behind that. Leaves me thinking of SA Noble Pils.
Taste is, again, citrussy grain. Has a nice malty orangy flavour which I associate with both Boston Lager and Noble Pils, so I presume it's the lager yeast working its magic again. Is pretty much balanced between bitter and sweet- not particularly dry but balanced.
Mouthfeel does reveal a bit of residual sugar which does hint at the "Imperial" nature of the Pilsener.
Not sure of the IBUs on this one but to be honest I wouldn't mind another 10 or so just to really dry you out at the end. Pilseners are a man's beer! Especially ones whose "Imperial" claim is as spurious as this 5.6% lager's is.

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.
