Pilsner glass pour, this appears golden, slightly hazy, with plenty if visible carbonation. Head is white and lacing is rung around the glass's walls.
Smells complex. Earthy hops, grass, herb/ mint, grain.
Tastes grassy and grainy, with floral notes and some added citrus (orange zest). Sweetness like corn from the pilsner malts, background biscuit, some spice. Lots here.
Feels chewy and smooth, with a slightly bitter finish.
This is a terrific imperial pilsner, and I grab one nearly everytime I see it on the store shelf.

My in-laws always like to bring me new beer from their travels, and this one is from one of their trips to NYC. It pours from the bottle with a cloudy, muted, orange-yellow color and is topped by a giant, dense, foamy head. The aroma has a decent yeast presence, some dull, earthy/leafy hops, a little bit of bready sweetness, and a tiny hint of alcohol. The flavor has a nice contrast of dense, woodsy bitterness against a chewy, yeasty breadiness. The light carbonation allows a mouth-filling, resinous texture to develop. Overall, this one is a bit hefty, with a rustic and bold flavor profile that is quite satisfying.

More grassy with lemony notes than the DFH version. Very clean and crisp brew.

Best by 2/2015.

Pours a murky yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, grass, and citrus fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with honey, citrus zest, grapefruit juice, and grass flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a lot of fairly assertive hop characteristics all around even though this one is nearing its best by date.

Serving type: bottle.
