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

A-very pale gold with a thin white head and fairly good lacing. lots of bubbles

S-smells like crisp grains and grass with a certain tropical fruits scent to it. mango, papaya, and the classical grapefruit scent. smells unique. medium strength.

T-hits the tongue with a crisp and slightly bitter grainyness. then comes a good splash of those tropical fruits i mentioned. those flavors extend out long and form a great after-taste accompanied only by a bit of bitterness. this is a really unique and good tasting pilsner. i wish the flavors were stronger, but they are nice.

M-medium carbonation that is soft, with a dry finish

O-well this has got to be one of the best imperial pilsners i've ever had. i'm confused by the other reviews. this isn't bland at all, in fact this is quite amazing. this really impressed me. a whole bomber is easily consumed by one's self/ i really hope to find this on tap somewhere at some point. i imagine it would be world class.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours deep gold with a rich white foamy head. Surprising for a brew with a few years of age. Smell is faint..mostly a light boozy sweet smell indicative of age. Taste is bold like a lager with the malt at full flavor, again light booze sweetness lingering in background. Mouthfeel is thick for a lager..definitely heavy. Overall this beer is definitely a true lager, although it loses flavor with the age. Would like to try an imperial beer of this style when fresh.
