Poured from the bottle into a Libbey style pilsner glass.

Shimmering, and bright crystal clear body color. Good streams of carbonation, through a very dark and unique orange bronze body. Bone to eggshell white head of a soupy simple two fingers, with a retention of one finger sticking around for a good time.

Muted hop angle, with a larger emphasis on sticky caramel and pasty lager yeast for the aroma. Not fusel burn on the nose, or sticky sweetness either. A pretty solid lager aroma.

Simple toasty and a bit of sticky to muted caramel qualities on the palate. Hints of bitter spice, but goes for more of a burnt grain and brown toast flavor. Finishes a bitter dirty and soil earthy in flavor, almost hinting at larger alcohol sugars, but doesn't at a simple five percent. There's a decent malt backbone to this, which seems to hint at thicker malt depth than our average pilsner, but everything else seems to be left behind not to catch up.

A very unusual czech pilsner, as the imperial certainly doesn't add much other than it seems in name and perhaps some malt body. I'd probably go for something else in this realm.

1/2 L bottle with a bottling date of October 2017.
Pours clear medium amber with excellent clarity and lasting, visible carbonation. Good white head.
Hop forward. Clean with some light bready grains.
Crisp, dry, near medium body.

Golden pour with bubbly, foamy head. Pleasant carbonation. Smells yeasty, light bread and tastes on par for the style. Not spectacular beer but a solid brew I'd enjoy more with food taking center stage. Finish and feel fell short IMO.

The beer is a clear amber color with a soapy thick head. There is a good amount of small carbonation bubbles flying up the beer. The beer smells of light malts and a nice grassy hop aroma is there as well. Overall smell seems typical for the style. The beer is light on taste but then kicks with a nice lemon flavor with a bite of hops at the end. The beer is thin but has good carbonation.

500ml bottle purchased from Capital Market Salem OR $3.99 Pours a cleafr bright golden colour with large nice looking creamy/frothy white head. Typical Czech pils aroma biscuity malts, and floral/grassy hop. Standard. More balanced than typical ( but this bottle is 5 months old) with more caramel style malts..and the hops appear at the end. Palate it fairly typical for style also. Fairly typical Czech Pils....as always would be better fresh
