12 ounce bottle into pilsener glass, best before Jan 2013. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, orange zest, pear, apple, bread, cracker malt, floral, herbal, and light peppery hops. Damn nice aromas with good strength and balance of malt/hop notes. Taste of lemon zest, pear, orange zest, bread, cracker malt, apple, floral, grass, and peppery hops. Good amount of floral citrus bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pear, bread, cracker malt, apple, floral, grass, and peppery hops on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice flavor balance with good complexity; with a nice malt/hops flavors balance; and zero cloying flavors on the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice imperial Pilsner! Great balance of hop/malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
