Appearance started good, plenty of head on a nice light and clear tan brew, but didn't leave a whole lot of lacing.
Smell was a touch of sawdust (that's a good thing) and plenty of dry grainy aromas, with a nice addition of hoppiness.
In the genre of imperial pilsners, I've got to admit that I'm quite a fan, and this one doesn't disappoint. Thick and oily-rich, yet highly pilsner like and very drinkable all at the same time. It's got a good hops thing going, but that's not to be overshadowed by the ample citrus and grain happenings. A tinge of spiced peppery-ness leaves you wondering just a little. However, deliciousness is not lost, as the flavor lasts in a lingering bitter and slightly oily finish.
Body is pilsner-like yet full, great stuff.
I think I'll try to get this stuff stocked at my local store. Great job!

Southern Tier Farmer’s Tan Imperial Pale Lager poured an orange gold color producing a minimal white head. The nose was floral; dominated by citrus, lemon and pine hops. The taste begins as the nose detected lemon, pine and citrus hops with a little malt in the background. The finish provided more lemon, and piney hops with a hint of spicy notes from the alcohol and lingering bitterness. Mouth feel is a little sticky but dry, with light alcohol heat.
Not being a hop head Farmer’s Tan Imperial Lager was a little too hop forward for me. If hops are your “thing” this American Double/Imperial Pilsner is for you.
