Notes/Commercial Description:
With our year-round pilsner fully dialed in, we decided it was time to dial things up to 11 - or at least 8.5 - with this imperial version, brewed as a one-off specifically for Brewvival 2012. The plethora of malt drives a sweet character, subdued by that familiar crisp edge of German hops. It’s all the pilsner, with less of the water.

On-tap at Brewvival 2012

Pours a hazy dark gold with a dense white head. Nice aromas of bubblegum, banana, and honey with a touch of crisp malt. Taste is very similar to the nose, typical BSPA flavors of grainy malt, banana, and honey with a nice tropical hop bitterness. Smooth, with a medium body and good carbonation. Solid BSPA, a bit forgettable given the stature of the other beers drank that day.

Serving type: on-tap

A: Poured from a growler to a tulip glass. Had an amber color and a hazy consistency. There was an inch and a half of foamy, long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A much sweeter aroma than I expected, with some fruit, malt, and yeast coming through.

T: Tasted of yeast, though not as strongly as with some beers of the style, a little malt, light fruit, and a bubble gum like flavor (a little unusual for the style). A pretty straightforward, tasty flavor.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a dry, smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A solidly made, drinkable beer.

Serving type: growler
