Description 

This is an imperial pilsner style exclusively hopped with Tettnanger hops for a distinctively noble flavor and aroma. Slightly sweeter from the imperial characteristic but very well balanced with the hop note.

Measuring up at 7.0% abv and 30 IBU, this beer pours a light golden color with a huge, fluffy, white head.  The aroma exhibits a crackery pils malt with a moderate herbal hops and a hint of DMS.  In the flavor, the moderate crackery pils malt and the herbal and spicy noble hops take on a an even balance while the slight bitterness barely stands up to the malt leaving a round pilsner malt lingering through the finish.  The hop and malt presence certainly represent an imperial presence but the bitterness is slight and the beer lacks a crisp, clean finish typical of most pilsners.
