A- Pale golden body with an eggshell foamy one inch head.
S- Light floral hop notes typical of a pilsner, sharp spiciness, I can detect the malts backing this all up.
T- Boozy syrupy spicy hops, I'm surprised by the amount of booze detected here being that its only 7.5. This boozy character keeps getting in the way of the enjoyment of this brew, besides that factor the hops taste delicious.
M- Not as light and crisp as the typical Lager but it is an Imperial so its appropriate for the style.
D- The booze was just too distracting for me to really enjoy this bottle.

Got this at MOM's organic market in Herndon. Opened in my hotel room in the Crowne Plaza a few blocks away. Surprisingly, gushed on me, messed up the carpet a bit. Now to the review.
Very Murky yellow body with quite stable little yellowish white head. Head is creamy but looks a bit coarse. No bubbles visible
Nose is some pilsner malt, there is a whole lot hop aromas going on. There is some resin, noble spiciness and some fruitiness too, maybe pineapple
Taste starts a little sweet and is followed by resiny hops and bitterness, sweet pineapple again.
Drinks very smooth with little carbonation and the suspended yeast. Alcohol warms a bit.
I do not really know what to make of this. I expected a Pilsener but it is way too sweet for that. I think it is overly hopped but the hops are nice. It does not have the refreshing sharpness of a lager but it is smooth. The suspended yeast would make it a Zwickl still it is more an IPA than a lager. Do I like it? I am not even sure about that.
