2.7/5  rDev -13.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

This beer poured a gold color with a weak white head. The head seemed to have disappeared right after it was poured. The initial smell of the beer was a bit grainy with a light malt. The initial taste of the beer was that of grains. The grain flavor stuck for the entire beer and made for an odd pilsner. The brew had a light to medium body with medium carbonation. What struck me as odd was the creaminess of the beer. I'm not sure if that was caused by the imperial style (never had an imperial pilsner before.)

Overall, this was a weird breed of beer. I'd give the style another shot, but definitely wouldn't have this beer again.

Pours a good clingy head on top of a clear gold body and has a light pils malt smell but not much else. A medium body with a small of sweetness and pils malt but it is a tad slick/watery and the malts aren't really in there to make a great impression. Not a bad beer but it is underdeveloped.

I'm not sure i understand this concept, Imperial Pilsner. If you're going to have a high abv beer, you need to balance it with something. This, like all the other "Imperial Pilsners" is too strong for the other ingredients. Even at only 6.5 alcohol by volume it's too strong.

Had it again. Liked it more this time but the carbonation is very low.

this beer pours a clear golden color with a decent amount of white head that recededs to lacing. the aroma has a decent amount of malt in the front with just a bit of hops in the back. it's a decent pilsner all in all, not one of my favorite beers, but this beer does go down smooth, a bit too smooth for an imperial anything. the medium body and good co2 make it a good drinking beer.

The beer pours a nice gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a grainy pilsner malt scent along with a mild Czech hop aroma. The taste is decent. It has a smooth and relatively light pilsner malt flavor that's actually quite grainy and breadlike in the finish. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is an average imperial pilsner. It's lacking depth in character and the toasted/graininess is definately a negative.
