750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before June 2014 on the cork. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 2-3 finger dense white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big lemon, pear, apple, pepper, floral, bread, honey, cracker, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with great balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, pepper, floral, bread, cracker, honey, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, pepper, floral, bread, honey, cracker, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and good complexity of earthy hops, malt, and fruity ester flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly slick, smooth, and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Imperial pils! All around nice balance of hop, malt, and fruity ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

semi hazed dull golden color with a super active big craggy and off white head. Tropical fruits and overall grassiness on the nose. Sweet breads and faintly peppery.

Very dry beer and also pretty clean for the size of the beer but not a super clean beer. Smooth creamy body from the bottle conditioning. Nice and full too, doesn't thin out anywhere. Grassy with faint citric fruits and peppery bitterness on the backend which is rounded out by the thick malt body. Balance is impeccable with layers of flavors. Grassy, citrusy, toasted graininess, rich hearty breads, all layered to create a wonderful balance. I like it.

Poured from a 750 ml cork and caged bottle into my Heavy Seas pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a nice golden color with about 3 fingers head. Looks exactly the way I would expect for the style.

Smell: Sadly, this smells like any old adjunct, with a bit more alcohol. I get mostly sweet grains and a lot of alcohol smell coming through.

Taste: The taste is of sweet grain, a slight malt taste up front, but mostly alcohol flavor and burn. For a 7% brew, this packs a huge punch and reminds me more of a malt liquor than a quality pilsner.

Mouthfeel: I have to say that the mouthfeel was a little syrupy for a pilsner. Pretty rough.

Overall: I think this was definitely a miss for Blue Mountain. I really enjoy most of their beers, but getting through a full bomber of this was a struggle. Maybe I haven't grown accustomed to the style, but it tastes like a super thick, super sweet BMC beer to me. I don't completely hate the brew, but definitely wouldn't buy again at the price point this is sold at!

Best by March 2013...no wonder it was marked down at Total wine.Poured into a 1/2 liter stein a slightly hazed orange tinged light to medium golden with a large blooming white head atop that settles oh so slowly leaving broken chunks behind in its wake.Graint and lightly toasted in the nosewith verly light leafy hops,pretty light in the aroma department.The flavors still seem pretty fresh with dryer malty tones and some toasted grain,a decent shot of herbal/leafy hops are there and the alcohol presence is not.A lighter double pilsner,it's not heavy and or sweet,I liked it but it won't knock your socks off.

On tap at the Big Hunt last night.

The beer pours a solid gold color with good head retention and lacing. Don't get a whole lot on the nose, just some light honey, some sweet malt and something of a biscuit or dough aroma. The flavor profile replicates the nose, but frankly, this beer is just too sweet for my taste. It makes the noticeable alcohol all that more.... well, noticeable. There's a hint of hoppy bitterness in the finish, but it's really not nearly enough to counter and balance the sweetness in this beer. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a fairly long, sweet and alcoholic finish.

Mehhhh....
