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.
