Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Reaper16 on 08-18-2012

With its classic recipe and impeccable craftsmanship, this summer seasonal is a study in delicately balanced contrasts. Up front, Pilsner malt makes a clear yet restrained statement, answered by the steady, harmonious hum of Saaz hops, traces of which linger in the dry, crisp finish.

Pours hazy straw under a fine 1” bone white head that slowly dissipates to a thick film that produces good lace. Spicy nose with light grains. Bread and grainy malt lead the palate to a drying, crisp finish with a touch of tartness. Medium body and medium to medium high carbonation. Full flavored but well balanced with a pleasant bitter hop accent on the finish.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #69 (October 2012):

One hop, one malt … Saaz & Pilsner respectively, a lot of noise on the palate from those two. Very rich with a lot going on as the complexities open up. Very drinkable, we had to remind ourselves at first that this is a 7.7%abv brew. Perfect for anyone wanting to taste a Saaz only beer, hoppy enough to satisfy a weathered hophead.

STYLE: Imperial Pilsner
ABV: 7.7%
AVAILABILITY: Seasonal

LOOK: Bright yellow, dense foam, glass stickage

SMELL: Floral, faint lemon zest, fresh grass, crackers, spicy, clean, mildly yeasty, peppery, faint alcohol

TASTE: Deep crispness, dried grass, bready, nutty, yeasty, peppery, balanced hop bitterness, goaty, vegtal, very malty, herbal, spicy hops, warming alcohol, very dry finish

I am in general a big fan of so-called Imperial Pilsners as they are a lot like a hoppier, lighter maibock, and this is an excellent one.

Gold, it has a very big white head, airy and slowly shrinking.

Aroma is strong, lightly toasty, raisiny grain, white bread, apples, grass, fruit skins (apple).

Taste is nice raisiny breadiness, apples, grassy-fruit skin bitterness with hint of herb. Zesty zingy bitter hop character dominates after up-front sweetness up front, but lots of sweetness and bitterness. It's excellent with lingering sweet and bitter, bread and grassy herb.
