The color is clear orange-yellow with a fleeting head. The smell and taste are alike - annoyingly sweet. I detected honey, candy and just a lot of sugary sweetness. The finish had too much heat in it for this price point. The mouthfeel was smooth but not particularly good on the carbonation front. Overall this reminded me of something a little closer to a cheap HG malt liquor than something I would drop 8 bucks for a 12 ounce pour (plus a buck tip for the bartender!).

I tried a can of this at Oudette's in Florence, Alabama. It poured a clear golden with no head and no lace. The scent had hints of honey. The taste was bitter leaning. Sweet honey on front....alcohol on the finish. The Mouthfeel was medium in body with subtle carbonation. Overall it's what I would expect a mead to taste like.

My first gander into Imperial Pilsners. At 11% this beer should be boozy, but it's not. The mouthfeel is where this beer excels, and it where it wanes is its lack of hop character. Definitely a nice sipper, a little sweet for my current palate, but the lingering honey, orange, and cream soda notes are well executed. I've never tried the original -OBP, so I can't compare it.
