Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Was curious about this style, through my experience imperial German style beers are either good or terrible with no middle ground.
Pours a very nice clear straw gold that falls victin to a chill haze which disappears over time. A nice 1 finger white creamy head rests on top and leaves lacing as a way of saying good bye. Very still, with no carbonation showing.
The first smell that sticks out is that typical pilsner skunk smell. There's a really grainy scent that follows in addition to some malt sweetness.
The taste is relatively sweet with a grainy malt bill. There is a nice smoothness to this beer which adds an interesting element. There's a nice sharp hop flavor as well as a slight skunk taste. It's a little bit drying on the palate. All in all not a bad beer, this may be the first middle of the road German beer I've had but I'm not sure if I'd be interested in trying this style again.
