3.68/5  rDev +2.8%

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, pepper, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pine, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, grapefruit, orange zest, pear, pine, cracker, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, grapefruit, orange zest, pear, pine, cracker, bread, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance of malt, hop, and yeast flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice imperial pils. All around well balanced hop, malt, and yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Well regardless of the beer, this is one sexy lookin' bottle.

Decent pils. Kind of a grain thing on the nose. Flavor is kind of clogged and thick. Doesn't really shine as sharply as I'd want. It's just there really. Definitely could use a sharper character profile.

12 oz bottle into a Glass.

A: a bright, very clear, golden orange hue. No Head, Minimal Soapy Lacing

S: Faint Frutyness

T: Typical Pils taste with a mild Bite. Some Fruity Overtones

M: average carbonation on a medium body.

D: Not really impressed. Taste is muted. Dosen't jump at me like a truly great brew should do. Price on the east cost is a bit much for this brew..

Serving type: bottle

This is a real good one, and an example of why the American styles like this are so good. It is a pils on steroids. It has more aroma, more hops bitterness, and more malty body than you get with the European styles.

As soon as you open the bottle a nice hoppy aroma escapes. That aroma keeps on giving. The color is a pee yellow and it has a weak head with a little lacing.

The taste is very hoppy. It has a bitterness and hoppy piney taste, but it is unique. It has a great hoppy bitterness that stays on the tongue long after it is gone down the hatch. Overall this is a big win and a brew I would buy again when I wanted a big (or just good-sized) beer.
