Poured from a bomber into a hybrid Sam glass.
A: Nice medium copper, substantial head that dissipated after a minute or so.
S: Faint alcohol, malt, and bitterness.
T: Pilsner malt, slightly unspecific hop bitterness, and alcohol lurking about.
M: Light to medium body, same for carbonation.
O: This is the first Imperial Pilsner I've tried, so a grain of salt here. The hops and alcohol lend a nice spiciness to this as it warms and the body builds. I need to try a few more in the style for a serious comparison, but this is enjoyable and fits the style description.

Pours amber. Small white head.
Smell is a little more bitter than I was expecting, but thats what those Saaz hops will do to ya. Sticky sweet malt backbone.
Taste is more bitter than anything. But its still very balanced. Sweet yet grainy malt backbone balances out what would be an overly bitter beer. I almost want to say the IBUs are high. Hops are slightly floral.
Serving type: on-tap
