Thanks to dcloeren for this interesting beer, at least in name.

Big fluffy head, nice lacing, semi clear golden color.

Nose of sweet malts and candy, candied citrus, hint of fruity esters, caramel toffee like.

Taste fluffy malts, light booze, sweet candy, syrupy, malts, light bitter hops hint citrus, gritty and fairly bitter, not really a pilsner but decent beer overall.

Mouth is med to fuller bodied, decent carb, bit of booze.

Overall not quite what I expected. Nothing really resembling a pilsner at all, some booze, lots of sweet syrupy malts and candy flavors, some hops, decent tasting but not nearly a pilsner like beer, even a "double pilsner".

Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a medium white head that disappears to an ultra thin, uneven lacing across the top of the beverage.

Grassy, hoppy aroma, as to be expected with a Pilsner, but includes mild citrus scents.

Taste is heavy heavier on the hops side, with slight maltiness.

Medium bodied, fuller than a typical Pilsner, much heavier than the American "Pilsner" style.

Overall, I like this beer. I first had it when the bottles were released last year. This is an aged bottle, that I think is better than the first time I had Pecker Wrecker.

Serving type: Bomber poured into a pint.

From a 650ml bottle pours an apricot colored brew. The head is unimpressively frothy, the color of playsand with a hint of red. It dissolves fast and leaves patchy spots of uneven foam.

The nose is pleasant but not as bold as you would expect for an imperial pilsner. There is gobs of malt but a thin mask of hop character. The hops smell stale and earthy while the malts have a fresher aroma. All together there is a hint of boozieness.

The taste is much like the nose. Again malts edge out the hop and not in a good way. Sweet, slightly roasted with a melon like flavor is the malt backbone while the hops tend to be a mix of pine resin and mild citrus. Again the theme of this brew is lackluster. The flavors aren't bold like an imperial should be but not entirely unpleasant.

Mouthfeel is the best part of this beer. The hops finally kick some booty with a crisp bite and sharp pinch of the tongue. Thin carbonation and a warm malt finish round out this slightly average beer. I've got to say I'm unimpressed but happy to see Rahr moving in this direction. This beer is worth trying just to support your local brewery.
