Oh my god, this is one of the all time worst beers! I poured it a bit too cold which should have benefitted this, but its quality shown thru. The beer reeked of sweet solvents. One taste and I almost retched; had to dump it and wash my mouth out. If you want somebody to leave your party, give them this beer.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip.

I'm a little jaded with this review but I guess my impulsiveness serves me right. Its called Imperial, the bottle is black, and I've had Lion Stout before and enjoyed it. So Lion Imperial to my surprise... is a pilsner.

A: Golden yellow with moderate 2 fingers of head.

S: Grains. Some floral hops but very mild.

T: Cereal grains and sugar, plus extra sugar, with some sugar. A subtle smokiness. Hops are nearly absent.

M: This is a pilsner? It's a little thick, somewhat syrupy. The beer is flat, essentially without carbonation.

O: Meh. As I said, I thought I was buying the Imperial Lion Stout. I won't get the pilsner ever again. I've had so many better and cheaper pilsners...
