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.

500ml bottle:

The beer poured clear, darker amber/golden color that produced a big, slightly off white head that faded quickly into thin cap. The beer gave off a nice lager aroma, sweet malt and yeast. The taste of the beer was malty sweet as well, but also had a syrup quality to it, which was very unexpected. This contributed to the lesser feel rating. With that said, the beer was still rather smooth. I really wanted to like this beer. Maybe it just didn't travel well or maybe it was old. I am willing to give this one another shot as I am really into the style.

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a short foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains lager yeast, light caramelized malts, a good amount of hops and some honey.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of lager yeast and a thin malt character. Then a mild but odd hops bitterness bite comes in. There is very little sweetness and not much balance. The after-taste is bready and slightly bitter.

M: Crisp and but not very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Not very tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, there are definitely other beers in the style that I would pick first.
