3.66/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a lemon gold, with a with a medium bubbled bodied frame. Head is nothing crazy maybe 1/4", white.

Smell: Hoppy and creamy, with light scents that fair well with the nostrils.

Taste: A real smooth beer that tasting it you realize what smooth is. Creamy like most marzens but it obviously it falls into it's own category. Light bitterness which has almost a milk feel to it.

Mouth: Medium feels a bit light at times but just enough to satisfy the pallets.

Overall: Honestly I am impressed, poruing it into my glass i was just thinking ehh "this is going to be okay" and to my surprise "YUM!". For around two bucks a bottle at your local beer spot, you got yourself a winner. Salud!

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

bottled on 11.11.2013

Appearance - clear golden body with white head

Smell - grass, buttered biscuit, grain, slight amount of honey sweetness

Taste - grass, herbs, buttered biscuits, grains, that hint of honey sweetness

Mouthfeel - lighter end of the medium bodied spectrum, medium carbonation, crisp, clean, smooth finish, decent amount of hop bite on the tail end of the finish

Overall - very crisp and clean, unobtrusive beverage that I found to be refreshing. Perfect for when you need that post yard work re-hydration. Would love to try this fresh on tap.

Price Point - $2.50/16.9 oz bottle

3.19/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Bottled 12/11/13.

Pours a clear golden orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of intense skunk that eventually dissipates somewhat, malt, grain, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grass flavors on the finish. There is a very mild 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 an above average beer that is drinkable, but the initial skunk aroma coming from the bottle is quite potent and never quite goes away.

Random buy from Bevmo. Poured into a pilsner glass.

A: Aggressive pour leads to two fingers bleached head. Beer is a fairly rich golden. Good amount of carbonation, racing to the surface. Moderate to good head retention. Moderate lacing. Looks good so far.

S: Crackery malts. Slightly salty. Very grassy and slightly floral. Noble hops, but not overly powerful. Nice balance.

T: Muted a bit in the flavor. Green grape on the end. Has a strange astringent streak that runs through in the end. Synthetic, plastic flavor. Very, very dry. Displeasingly dry, almost. Malt just falls out and the strange synthetic flavor dominates from the mid point on. Splashes of diacetyl and a strange, overbearing bitterness on the aftertaste.

M: Very dry. Vigorously carbonated, but not overly so. Enjoyable.

O: Very good in every category except the one that truly counts; taste! Looks great, smells great, feels great, tastes...I don't know how to describe it. It's like an astringent plastic. Bad bottle, maybe? Everything else was so good.

3.49/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

The beer comes in a dark amber color with a fluffy white head.

The aroma has lager yeast, a spicy hop quality, a grainy quality.

The flavor is very spicy in the front of pepper and herbal qualities. Green grass throughout with drying qualities on the back. There’s a bit of sweetness in the middle along with a touch of a bready malt.

The back carries much drying and hints of herbal and grassy bitterness.

A decent representation of the style, but I imagine that this bottle being 6 months old has caused it to lose some of hop qualities.

Krušovice Imperial 12° has a medium, soapy, slightly off-white head, a mostly clear, amber appearance, bubble streams, and some splotchy lacing left on the sides of the glass. The aroma is of dank, somewhat turned, pungent barley malt, and hop oil. Taste is of sweet, bready malt, grassy hops, and a touch of hop extract, I think. Mouthfeel is medium and oily, and Krušovice Imperial 12° finishes semi-dry, easy drinking, a bit filling, and terrifically good. Overall, I love it!

Golden yellow body topped with a thick, chunky, creamy white head. Lightly toasted malt grain and somewhat grassy smell. Grainy flavor with a smooth hop bitterness at the finish. Light and smooth body; crisp, clean, dry finish.

Krušovice doesn't break any new ground for the style yet is certainly quite drinkable and solid representation of the style.
