3.4/5 rDev -2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
From a 650ml bottle pours an apricot colored brew. The head is unimpressively frothy, the color of playsand with a hint of red. It dissolves fast and leaves patchy spots of uneven foam.
The nose is pleasant but not as bold as you would expect for an imperial pilsner. There is gobs of malt but a thin mask of hop character. The hops smell stale and earthy while the malts have a fresher aroma. All together there is a hint of boozieness.
The taste is much like the nose. Again malts edge out the hop and not in a good way. Sweet, slightly roasted with a melon like flavor is the malt backbone while the hops tend to be a mix of pine resin and mild citrus. Again the theme of this brew is lackluster. The flavors aren't bold like an imperial should be but not entirely unpleasant.
Mouthfeel is the best part of this beer. The hops finally kick some booty with a crisp bite and sharp pinch of the tongue. Thin carbonation and a warm malt finish round out this slightly average beer. I've got to say I'm unimpressed but happy to see Rahr moving in this direction. This beer is worth trying just to support your local brewery.

3.48/5 rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Looks like a pale ale, with a clear amber color capped by three fingers of foam; the head turns rocky and leaves a few shards of lace
Smell: Graham cracker malt with just a hint of Germanic hops
Taste: Graham cracker malt flavors dominate from the front end to the finish; not much hop balance but what there is tastes rather grassy
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, almost syrupy, with low to moderate carbonation
Overall: This bottle must date from the 2011 release so it is no wonder that the hops have faded; it now tastes more like a Bock than an Imperial Pilsner and it is rather tasty, if you think of it that way
Thanks to the forgotten BA who sent this to me as an extra
