Picked up at Grapes & Gourmet in Virginia Beach. 750ml corked and caged bottle served in a pilsener glass - no freshness dating. Pours a lovely honey-gold with a translucent clarity and a fluffy 2.5 inch, buttermilk colored head. Head eventually settles into a frothy, quarter inch cap with semi-concentric bands of textured lacing revealed during the tasting. Not much to the nose; just a suggestion of lemon, noble hops and a light grainy quality - very clean. Taste consistent with nose; however, malt character is much more assertive in the flavor profile - there's a pleasant sweetness without being overly assertive and finishes with a delicate fruity character. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a texture that's not quite oily, but not quite silky. Carbonation is easy and even, but I'd like to see it be a little more crisp. Overall, I haven't had too many Imperial Pils; however, I did enjoy this beer.

Picked up a 750ml caged and corked from the brewpub last Sunday. Best by July 2014 per the cork.
Beer poured deep golden with a nice two finger ahead upon the initial pour.
Nose is typical pils, sweet malts with hints of lemon.
Taste is well balanced with the malt base not being overly sweet as the German style hops balances and refreshes nicely.
Mouthfeel is medium carbonated and pretty refreshing considering the gravity of this brew.
Overall this is a solid representation of the impy pils style, definitely not as overwhelming as others i have tried. Give it a shot if you see this brew.

Poured into a Pilsner glass from a pint bottle that was corked with a best by June 2014 stamp on it.
Looked like you would expect a pilsner, clean golden color with a foamy white head. The head retained well as it sat in the glass and laced the glass as it dissipated.
A very nice, malty smell as you breath it in. Not overpowering in any way.
A very clean mouthfeel, not as watery as a lot of American Pilsner, holds true to the flavor profile of the traditional German Pilsner. You can tell it is an 'uber' or 'imperial' as there is a lot more body to it. A very nice malty flavor accompanies the fragrance, yet is not overpowering. Has a nice bitterness to it that lingers in your mouth. Very crisp and drinkable.
I have had very few 'uberPilsners' and this beer definitely makes me want to explore the style more.
