look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

poured 22oz bottle into snifter.

A - Pours a hazy orange, with 2.5 fingers of pilowy white head. Good amount of lacing on glass.

S - Aromas of heavy pilsner malt and yeast. Some grassy notes and grain mingles with the yeast. Hops are light with some earthy and herbal qualities. There is a sweetness to it and a bit of citrus and candied orange.

T - Nice and malty up front with a yeast and grain. Moves into the grassy notes with the herbal earth like hops. Hints of citrus and candied orange can be found on the finish.

M - Crisp and well carbonation, and medium bodied. Not as clean, but that is okay in this big beer.

O - Very nice Imperial Pils, that is not to be confused with an IPL. Those looking for hops should look at other offerings. This one will satisfy the malt lovers.

Pours a deep golden yellow, slightly opaque with a gentle orange hue.

Pine, citrus, some spice, candied and toasted malts.

Sticky, slightly pale ale-esque with a spicy citrus nose and toasted lager malt backbone.

Mouthfeel is sticky and thick, great for a lager.

Overall, a great example of the Imperial Pilsner and would drink again!

From a bomber into a pint glass. Color is rich gold with thick white foam and thick sticky lace on the glass.

Smell is heavy on malt and citrus

Taste follows well with a nice hop balance. Just a touch of spice as well.

Very light mouth feel. I would say the lightest for a 7+ abv beer that I can ever remember having. Super refreshing beer that would be awesome on a hot day!

Poured from a 22oz bottle to my Off Color Brewing tulip

Thanks to my neighbor John for the beer.

Well, pils are usually not my style of beer. I like 3 Floyd's and I like beer, and this was free beer.
The pour is orange with a nice white head. Very good retention and lacing. Looks like the classic beer look that you would see in commercials.

Smell is crisp and malt. Slight spice and citrus. Smells good

Taste is nice. Got a good fruit thing going with the malt. Very light, malty, citrus, and a slight black pepper spice.

Overall, if this was in cans, I'd drink this mowing the grass. This is a perfect outside, mindless beer. It has lots of taste and can be complex if you concentrate on the flavors. It can also be as simple as a Busch light with tons more flavor. Thirst quenching and satisfying. Floyd's should put this in cans or six pack of bottles. I could drink this all night, but at 7.2%abv I'd be shit faced in no time.

22oz bottle poured into snifter

A- Well filtered deep organge, almost no head
S- Light classic pils smell, but with a bit more sweetness. A touch of citrus hops.
T- Classic pils almost skunk bitterness, but quickly wiped by a citrus hops note. Finished sweet and hoppy.
M- Smooth and drinkable. Medium

O- I don't tend to like pils, but this one was enjoyable.
