L: A hazy orange amber pour crowned by a clingy 2” sudsy white foam collar.
S: Alcohol and malt dominate the aroma with traces of floral, herbal, citrus and spice.
T: Rich and malty balanced by big hops and alcohol, a light malt sweetness provides balance with a lingering bitter hop and alcohol aftertaste.
F: Clean, crisp and smooth, medium full body, medium carbonation.
O: A big bold pilsner that provides a very satisfying drink.

Pours a dark golden color - a bit hazy for a Pilsner. Light foam and lacing. Smells of peppery cracker, a little bit of pear and honey. Taste follows with a nice hop finish, with honey and a bit of booze. Feel is a little slick and sticky. Overall a nice brew!

I traveled with this from NJ to Dom Rep because there's only so much Presidente one can take. My brother-in-law and I split a bottle in pilsner glasses. Drinkable and refreshing but has noticeable substance and body--I suppose therein lies its "imperial" quality. Crisp pilsner flavor with no sense of the higher alcohol content. (9.0)
