12 ounce bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Bottled on date rubbed off.

Pours clear, bronze, with a smallish head and lots of carbonation. Smell is slight alcohol, some kind of mustiness, slight lemon sour.

Taste is much brighter than the aroma. Honeysuckle sweetness, deep interesting bitterness. Slight yeasty breadiness.

Mouthfeel is thick, sticky, chewy. Overall, tasty beer. Interesting.

If you're seeking a big pils, this will do.

I thought I hated the idea of an imperial pilsner, but this was great. Not too boozy, distinctive lager taste. I wouldn't hesitate to have another. Merry Christmas. I'm drunk.

Deep gold to light brown in color. A fingernail of off white head covers most of the top. I smell a very light malt forward body. There's a coppery note in there. This is almost a light Barleywine in taste. The mouth is thick and carbonated.

Bottle (dated ):
Appearance is maybe a tad dark, in the sense it's a bit on the orange side of golden. Head represents nicely but visible carbonation riding through the clear beer is absent. Nose is a bit fruity. It's actually not bad, but odd for a pilsner, I think. I get a some pear and plum, some wet cardboard that may be from an alcohol scent I get.

Taste is a bit on the fruity side, with it a certain sweetness that I am not sure works. It might be better if backed by a stronger bitterness to balance it. I get plum, some hints of apple cider, or maybe and applesauce with cinnamon and raisin. The missing visible carbonation does hit the tongue during the taste. However, the beer to me is missing a drying bitterness to counter the front tastes.

Not a bad beer if you like fruity malt beers. The alcohol in the nose seemed to add an detracting note to this beer on top of a missing bitterness. While I would sip this beer if offered to me, I won't seek it out.

Pours golden with a creamy head of foam that lasts well. Perfect color. Dark like a good pils with some bubbles coming up to show themselves off. Sweet malt on the nose and herbal hops. Smells really good actually. has a freshness to the scent. Sweet citrus peel backing on the nose. Really floral. Hops are devilishly sweet on this nose. I like it a lot. Taste is really well done. has a good crisp carbonation and a firm malt base. Grainy. It has a citrus fruitiness on a floral hops. Good lager. The ten percent is not a hindrance to the taste of the beer. it does add a bit of bitterness and bite to the drink but pleasant. Hops are dank and live up to the abv. Well done. Dry too and crisp in the finish.
