Pours gold, less pale than I would expect from a pilsner. Off white head on this pour. Good crackery and saaz-y aroma. The flavor is unfortunately not what I want from a pilsner. There is bitterness, but not that distinct spicy herbalness that comes from saaz. The bitterness is a little muddled. There seems to be an off flavor that hurts its crispness/refreshingness. Not a huge fan of this pilsner.

Bottle from Toom Getrankemarkt-Landstuhl. Nicely hopped pilsener, crisp and clear, with sharp finish. This is an easy drinker, smooth, and tasty. prime example of the Czech style

I purchased a bottle of Krušovice Imperial for $2.79 USD in Los Angeles, CA/USA.
Look: Krušovice Imperial has light foam.
Smell: Krušovice Imperial has the aroma of both metal and wheat.
Taste: Krušovice Imperial has an ironic mix of flavours consisting of both metal and wheat.
Feel: Krušovice Imperial had the feeling of well carbonated drinking water.
Overall: People who seek a beverage that tastes of both metal and wheat will enjoy Krušovice Imperial.

Pours a nice golden color with a moderate head. However, the lace retention is not so good as it disappears entirely halfway through.
A grassy, malt and hops aroma. Towards the end of the drink there is a slight sweet and alcohol quality.
I was actually impressed by the taste at first. I was hit with a bold hop and herbal flavor. However, the finish left a bitter and burnt lingering after taste that was not pleasant. Maybe it was skunked or not fresh? Pretty disappointing.
