Poured from a bottle into a Chimay goblet.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden amber with lots of fluffy white carbonation and good retention.

Smell: Herbal up front with some citrus in the background and a floral fruity note as well.

Taste: Bitter hops with some light, bready malt. Fairly smooth overall with some of that signature pils taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with fluffy carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This is a pretty good beer for the style. The hops were smooth and everything blended together well. I don't think I would search it out again.

poured into new belgium snifter. Three fingers of soapy, white foam head that leaves generous lacing. Color is an orange-copper

Smell is very floral with lots of orange blossom. Alcohol is slightly detectable.

Beer tastes like a pilsner that's been modified more than anything else. Much sweeter than i expected with a nice hop kick. Little bit of bitter citrus, grass, and a nice sweet finish that i cannot describe.

Beer lacks carbonation that you would expect from a pils. The hops stay on your tongue after every sip. Beer is too sweet upfront to think it's a pils if you were blind tasting it.

I should probably rate to style but i enjoy this beer for what it is.

This bottle was courtesy of BrewerB in a box I received on Friday. Thanks for hitting this want Brian!

First off, I love the name and that this is quadruple hopped. So, its got to be at least a little better than Miller Lite. It pours a light bodied cloudy gold in color with a poofy two finger white head. It smells of pale malts, corn, other grains, with just a touch of hop bitterness. I mean ESB subtle bitterness. It tastes of sweeter pale malts with a moderate amount of honey with a slightly bitter hop finish. The honey flavor seems to be authentic. I do still detect some corn in the after taste. My first thought is that this is a less refined My Antonia. It has nice flavor and I consider this style to be very drinkable. Overall this is a solid beer and good for the style. I'm sure a lot of people don't think a pilsner is worth the money but I enjoyed this one.

Got this little gem when I picked BT ’11 allocations for myself and a few others a few weeks back. Shared with the wife and served in Duvel tulip glasses.

A – Pours a hazy golden/straw color and the haziness never really goes away. Nice thick 2-3 finger head develops and dissipates rather quickly, the head leaves some nice lacing on the glass.

S – Lots of Earth/funk characters, some lemon zest, some biscuit/bread presence also.

T – Similar to the nose, fresh lemon zest flavor, a mild hop profile that then develops into a sweet malt profile at the end. This has the earth/funk flavors, a yeastiness similar to a Belgian saison or triple, interesting flavor profile for an Imperial Pilsner.

M – Thicker side of medium, great carbonation on this also. Pretty refreshing.

O – Didn’t know what to expect from this, and I wasn’t disappointed. Was expecting something a little more hop forward and a little more cleaner and less Belgain/farmhouse funk, but it’s just the Bruery’s style and you can’t dismiss that. Would be cool to see this in the regular line up or a seasonal offering into distribution.
