Imperial Pils? First time I've had this beer style.
Pours to a light orange with a white foam head. At first sip you can taste the higher hops than with other pilsners. Taste is somewhat grassy with a hoppy yet not overpowering finish. Foam dissapears quickly but the aftertaste on this beer is not that bitter and makes your pallate desire another sip. At 7.5% and with a 22 oz bottle it might still be considered a session beer that one can enjoy when looking for a beer to stick with and not have it overpower you.
Serving type: bottle

Appearance: Tried the Whistler Imperial Pils on tap at Small Bar during rollout pint night Thursday night. This just looked good. Poured a dark golden color with a 1" frothy head that dissipated rather quickly.
Smell: Toasted malts, definitely a grassy hop presence. Was it dry-hopped?
Taste: Crisp and clean toasted malts with a lot of grassy hop flavor and a pretty decent bitterness that lingered through the dry finish. Nothing heavy-handed.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and very easy drinking.
Drinkability: This was the best stab at a Czech-style pilsner that I've tried. Strong recommendation.
Serving type: on-tap
