Although listed at 8.2% ABV instead of the 9% listed here, this deliciously unique beer was recently brewed again and I surely hope it will make many more appearances. A highly drinkable blend of floral hops and complex cereal grains.

This is my second beer from this Brewery and I must say I am impressed! I didn't know what to expect from an 'Imperial Kellerbier', having had limited experience with the Kellerbier style (Sam Adams Alpine Spring & Columbus Summer Teeth are the only ones I have had previously). The Imperial designation lives up to it's name: this is a smooth tasting beer with a bite! It has a cloudy appearance, as it should, with lots of flavor. The German Tettnang hops used are well-balanced in this brew: you taste them but they don't overwhelm you. This is a great Lager beer that I will be drinking as long as it is available!

A: Quite pale, yellow-blonde color. Very thin, quickly dissipating, eggshell head.

S: Very light citrus aroma, possibly tangerine. Not much else.

T: Very bready and yeasty. Noble hop spicey-bitterness lingers long on the finish and coats your palate. There’s some flavor I can’t quite put my finger on here.

M: Dense and viscous for a lager. Really just coats your mouth in flavor. Very light in carbonation.

O: A really fascinating brew; its not like other beers I’ve had before. Heavy, dense and long lasting flavor, this is like no lager I’ve had before. This would pair really well with hearty german food. Worth trying just for its uniqueness.

What a delicious beer. Full mouthfeel with a wonderful bread and wheat flavor. This golden hazy brew has a well masked 9%. The subtle spice notes on the back palate leave you wanting more. If you love full flavor german beers, this is quite a treat!!

"...Bohemian Pilsner, Munich Malt and flaked wheat...American interpretation of the style balanced by German Tettnang hops..spicy character for this Imperial Kellerbier".

Pours golden straw colored with a nice even white head.

Smells floral and slightly sweet. Pleasant aroma with some lagery notes as well. Can even smell the alcohol.

Taste is full of lager cleanness and lots of spice from the hops. Definite boozy taste too that lends a sharpness to the brew. Malty as well. Finishes soft on the pallet and somewhat dry. The wheat addition likely gives it this pleasant finish, and the beer is full of lager goodness.

First available 12-28-12.
