Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of orange cake, nougat, and herb cracker with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tangy, caramelized peach, herb butter on rye toast, tomato, and radish spouts accented finish. Nice zippy balance and fruitiness.

Imperial pilsners are light amber to deep gold in color and range in alcohol from 7.5-8.5%. These beers are medium to full-bodied and are characterized by a sweet malty flavor and subtle hop character. Although the name implies this beer is an “imperial” version of the pilsner style, beers in this category are actually closer in character to maibocks/hellesbocks. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Rogue Morimoto Imperial Pilsner, Rahr & Sons Pecker Wrecker Imperial Pils, Stevens Point Whole Hog Imperial Pilsner and Dogfish Head My Antonia.
