A: Cloudy golden with lots of soda like carbonation, 3 fingers of yellowish off white head that has good retention. Little pinhead or fragments of glass formations as lacing.

S: Sweet, malty, slightly fruity like fruit cocktail, lager qualities, lager hops, saaz.

T: Deep sweet qualities with a hint of canned pineapple at first, then big lager qualities, big malts and big saaz hops, some oregano oil, quite herbaceous. A good amount of sweetness, then a big alcohol burn in the throat. A sort of plastic like quality I sometimes get in some Hefe Weizens as well. A sort of exaggerated pilsner quality in the aftertaste, like a pilsner on steroids, leaving a sort of lager burn taste which I assume is the saaz.

M: Thick, bready, syrupy, lots of heated soda like carbonation. Balanced finish.

O: I got this to better understand the style of IPL, which I was told this represents by the experts at Bruisin’ Ale’s in Asheville. I had Hitachino’s Nipponia a while back, and this is also considered an imperial pilsner as this one is. So, I am guessing IPLs and Imperial Pilsners are considered to be under the same category, not yet specified by some experts. Of the two, Nipponia is superior in my opinion. Tilted smile is good however, and worth a try.

Bottled two years ago, but stored in a dark 68 degree area for 18 months or so it's been in my possession. I mention this because on one hand I think this beer might have turned a bit, but reading through the reviews, plenty of them mention an overly sweet taste, and mine is almost syrupy. Smells faintly of citrus, but also rusty water. Plenty of carbonation and lace left, though, so maybe this is just far more sweet and sticky than I prefer.

A - Hazy amber body with three fingers of bubbly white head. Really nice retention and the foam clings to the glass the entire way down.

S - Dank fruits and sugary malts. Smells just like a pilsner should with a Belgian twist.

T - Tons of cherry and tangy apricot fruitiness. Again, strong Belgian yeast flavor profiles. Malts are full and bready. Alcohol is spicy but well masked by the strong flavors.

M - Medium full body with moderate high carbonation. Very sticky and syrupy.

O - Not a bad brew. Flavors seem more like a Belgian/pilsner. Normally I prefer a pilsner to be lighter and more dry. Definitely a beer worth trying, but not one i'm likely to come back to often. I do love the labeling though.
