1pt 9.4 oz bomber bottled in 2012. properly cellared since then in refrigerator. poured into a sam adams noble pils glass.
A - pours a dark yellow almost blond color. uncommon for a pils. this is my first time having an imperial pils. let alone a 2 year old vintage. 2 1/2 finger tight billowy foam that sticks around.
S - yeasty funk and i pick up a green apple scent. almost like a goose island sophie. i guess its due to the pilsner malts and saaz hops. very sweet smelling sugary, earthy note. very belgian like.
T - same as the nose. slight yeast funk, pear, greenapple, earthy malts and spicy hops. like a amped up czech pils. the aftertaste is very similar to thier piercing pils offering.
M - more full bodied than a standard pils. almost viscous. good carbonation though.
O - Not a bad introduction to an imperial pilsner. i'll seek it out to try it fresh. overall not that bad....cheers!!

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.
