500ml Bottle - thanks to frenchy for this one

Appearance - Clear yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for 3 or 4 minutes.

Smell - Bread, grains, corn, malts, caramel

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation an I can taste corn and malts mixed with hops and a fair amount of caramel. There is also a grassiness and some citrus zest. It ends with a slightly bitter and zest hop aftertaste.

Overall - A very tasty beer that has a nice hop profile. It seems well crafted and I'd drink it again. One of the better beers I've had from this brewer.

Picaroons Feels Good Imperial Pilsner
Batch #1379

Style: Pilsner Lager

A - Orange-Golden Hue, 1 1/2 finger head that goes away quick, plenty of lacing.

S - Hoppy goodness, smell of citrus, apple.

T - Hop bitterness apparent in back of throat, crisp, hint of grain, high alcohol content (7%) is masked perfectly.

M - A bit creamy but not too thick, carbonation is good. A notable lack of dryness at the end loses something for me.

D - A good Pilsner attempt, on the same lines as Pilsener Urquel but not quite as dry and a bit thicker. It's easily drinkable, which may make it somewhat dangerous seeing that it's a stronger beer.

Rating - 3.5/5 (B+)

Bottle from my Awesome girlfriend... this bottle of beer is 3 days old, lol. Awesome. bottle date 7-25-11.
Review by style...
Pours a light golden color with rather large bubble carbonation, and needless to say, fades fast!
Nose is a strong hay and apple with what seems to be a hint of raspberry and alcohol... but mostly hay.
taste is also a very strong apple flavor, a nice citrus bitterness on the front and middle of the palate and a light traditional bitter on the finish. This is quite good! Cant say i have gone out of my way to find imperial pilsners, but the last one I had was Pecker Wrecker, and this one is significantly better than that one. This one is very nice and light, lightly carbed, perfect for a hot day, while the pecker wrecker was thick and syrupy. The abv is hidden well, as this is easily chuggable! But dont let it get too warm, it goes downhill quickly as it warms.
Great Imperial Pilsner, for sure! If i was rating by taste alone and not to style i would put this around a B-. As it is a pilsner...

3.25/5  rDev -14.5%

A: Poured with a large, white, frothy head that had fairly good lasting power until it finally diminished to 1/2-finger. No real lacing to speak of. Body is dark gold and extremely clear.

S: I'm not getting much from the aroma... DMS is definitely present, as is a slight twinge from the hops.

T: The DMS is present in the flavor, as well, but not too overbearing. Finishes with a sharp bitterness that lends to the fairly long-lasting duration. The alcohol is not present, even at 7% ABV.

M: Light-bodied, fairly creamy, with average-to-fizzy carbonation.

D: Not a bad beer, but not really a great example of a Pilsner, Imperial or not.

Lumpy, off-white head that leaves chunky lace on the side. The liquid is golden with a mild chill haze.

Notable sweet caramel aroma. There's some raw grain as well. What's missing, though, is any hop or alcohol to the nose.

Starts with a smooth, "round" malt flavor. The bittering hop takes over quickly. This is a very rich pilsner. The carbonation is low, making this an overly robust beer that comes close to having the consistency of milk. The aftertaste is of white pepper and lingers a long time.

The sad thing about this pilsner is that it is not available in Santa Barbara, or anyone in the US as far as I know. I would buy this weekly. It has a high alcohol content without tasting like it. Nice buzz without gagging. In fact, I love the taste.

A bit of foamy white head (less than / about a finger) that doesn't stick around terribly long. Leaves rings of lace, though, as it goes. It basically looks like a glass of honey. A little cloudy.

Not much a of a smell... a little sweet, like a wheat ale. A bit doughy.

The taste isn't too bad. A little more bitter than I like, though. A bit of creaminess in the smell / taste. Maybe a hint of banana, even, which isn't odd, in my experience, for the things that smell like a wheat ale.

Pretty good in the mouth... not too fizzy. A bit creamy. Just a bit too bitter on the tongue for my liking. Lasts too long on the tongue.

Overall, pretty drinkable, but there are many other beers I'd go to first.

A clear, crisp golden beer with an orange tinge. Big bubbly head had alright retention. Hard to battle through the head, but when I did, a little nutty and some spice, maybe clove. The taste was first Apple, really acidic. Hints of honey and slightly earthy. This is brewed at 7.5% abv but is smother than that. Easy drinking and smooth. Now that the weather is getting nicer, a great time to break these out.

clear light golden yellow colour. inch and a half of foamy white head - decent retention.

smell was sweet, wheat, hops and malt, maybe a bit of fruit - quite nice.

taste also had a sweetness to it, little grainy, and bit of hops - alcohol is hidden well.

overall a good, very drinkable pilsner and probably the brewery's only above-average beer.
