Bottle: Poured a deep golden color pilsner with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of dry hoppy notes with light dry malt notes. Taste is a nice mix between some dry hoppy notes with light barnyard notes and some malt acting as a good backbone with well balanced sweetness. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Well brewed and interesting one-off beer from this brewer.

A new series of beer from this far far away brewery. Price is ok, thus I bought it :)

The color is pale yellow to gold color. Very clear. No head except during the poor... it was very white color. The aroma intensity is quite low, very difficult to distinguish anything. Probably too cold. Yes, as it warms up, I get aroma of grains and cereal. Ordinary and doesn't appear to be bitter at all. No trace of alcohol. A little bit disappointing.

On the taste, I get mainly malts and grains... no hop traces... not a faint one too. Ordinary.

I feel the warmth in the mouth due to the level of alcohol. This one is unbalanced IMO. Too much grains, which probably brings the alcohol high... however, it is not overly hopped...

Ordinary beer. Taste it to see for yourselves, but not a day-to-day beer, too ordinary.

Served in a spiegelau beer tasting glass

A:Light golden color, with rapidly fading foam head

S: Nice, light, and floral. Pretty typical of a Pilsner. Really liked it, even if it was far from flamboyant.

T: I've tried this 3 times in the last 2 weeks. Last two tastings left me with a really good impression. Alcool was well integrated in a pretty light mouthfeel, but with all the refreshing character of a pilsener. It was more flavorful than your typical pils, without being hot. Tonight, the alcohol kind of ruin the experience, as the beer is pretty hot.

My favortie beer from this micro. I don't think I would buy this anymore, but still and interesting brew.

Bottle from Broue HAHA. From notes. Labelled as an Imperial Pilsner if I recall correctly.

A - Poured golden stgraw, bright, with good carbonation coming up. Film of white head on top with no lace or retention.

S - Herbal, grassy, lot's of grain, some booze.

T - Grain, not really any hops to speak of aside from a slight note. Crackers. Almost entirely just straight up grain.

M - OK carbonation. Medium to full body with a sweet grainy finish.

O/D - I was expecting alot of noble and grassy hops, I just got a strong lager. I wouldn't call this an Imperial Pils by any stretch, just a marketing ploy. It was ok but I wanted alot more out of it in the style department to draw it out of the boredom department.
