750ml shared with Klym, poured into Stone Nonic.

A: Luminous golden straw body with a fluffy white ~2 finger head. The beer is fairly cloudy without any visible inconsistencies, but the glass is also quite cold! The color is best described as honey like with some inclusion of early morning sunlights.

S: A really forward mealy wheat sweet nose, with a complexity in the sweetness that is gummy like. Pineapple orange gummies are really present in the nose. A prickle of lemony sweetness makes for a zesty note. The sweetness is controlled by a subtly drying tartness. Not too sweet at all, very balanced notes.

T: A very clean hoppy flavor that blends with wheat malt for a complex granola of pine nuts, sunflower seeds, and light flax. Really quite good tasting with brief tastes of light colored quinoa. Complex seedy tastes that keeps away from typically cereal grain notes. Some sweetness of pear juices adds a lot to the overall flavor. Surprisingly delicious balance.

M: A very full pilsner body in the mouth where bubbles and alcohol blend for a very Ale-like feel. The bubbles sensitize the taste buds for balanced hop flavor and ripe non-citrus fruit juice. Love the balance of pear and pineapple juice over extremely well balanced hops. The alcohol really adds a level of smoothness that I haven't had in a pilsner before. Digging this mouth a lot.

O: The flavor on this Imperial Pilsner is very solid, and it's greatly helped by the mouth-feel. There's an extraordinary balance here for the style; as I think flavors of pear, pineapple, seedy hops, and small texture grains make for a culinary forward light beer. While the feel and style may be traditionally light, this one has a very smooth alcohol characteristic. The integration of the alcohol takes this to the next level for me. Very smooth drinking full flavors over a full body for me; best imperial pilsner I've had, and I've had more than a few. There's still room for improvement, but quad hopping this brew wasn't a bad idea. Impressive balance on this one.

Served in a Boulevard tulip glass.

Given our shared love for old school rap, classic Golden State Warriors trios, and odd new beers, I had to share this one with VDubb. His reaction was similar to mine: "Cool name, but does it have to be an imperial pils?" Yeah... Anyway, this stuff pours a lightly-hazy brass topped by a finger or so of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises fresh non-flavored oatmeal, sweet corn, light wild rice, light sweet flowers, and a vague sense of greenery off in the distance, oasis-style. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a thankfully-mild-but-still-decidedly-perceptible vein of vinyl. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a generally fluid feel. Overall, one of the better imperial pilsners I've had, but still nothing I'd wanna go after again. Gotta love novelty, right?

This poured out as a hazy golden color with a fluffy white head. The lacing is nice there is a decent retention also. The smell of the beer is earthy and malty, subtly sweet. It smells nice for the style. The taste of the beer is malty and sweet. Not much hop bitterness but plenty of corn-like sweetness. The mouthfeel is nicely carbonated and medium bodied. Overall this is a pretty good brew.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

pour is hazy orange amber and deep orange center with a bubbly thin white head leaving a decent lace. Nose is heavy grain with some stale cereal. A cream and citrus behind with a cardboard paper underneath. Taste is the same, paper and cream, grain is faint, light citrus, more zest and notes of coriander. Everything is slightly muted and a bit disintegrated.
Body is crisp, grainy, and highly carbonated.
