This beer is billed as an "imperial pilsner". Tasted in a pint, on tap, a few days after release.

The aroma is surprisingly light, with pleasant malt tones and a hint of floral hops.

It is beautifully clear, deep gold in color, with a good white head.

It comes into the mouth with a pleasant malty sweetness, which is immediately balanced by the 40 IBUs of hop bittering. Floral hops float around, without dominating, and the finish is clean and malty.

Medium bodied, with a pleasant warmth from the alcohol.

Just as their Premium is a version of the standard american lager with integrity, I'm thinking this is a malt liquor with integrity. It's got flavor, in a restrained, not in-your-face way.
