Gold color. Toasty, green aromas and flavors of fresh herb baguette, caramelized citrus, chocolate, and roasted root vegetables with a supple, racy, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity full body and a warming, distinctive, very long finish that exhibits notes of pepper, rapini, and herbal honey finish. A rich and wonderfully bitter IPL with a satisfying, chewy malt backbone.

Imperial Pilsner

Beer Glass Pokal Gold.jpg
Serve in a Pokal
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.
