311. Sierra Nevada Imperial Pilsner (Beer Camp #43)
Not a huge fan of pilsners and not sure what makes this an imperial pilsner. When I think imperial, I think high ABV – bigger flavors, etc and this one has none of that. Color is a clear orange with single finger white head. Aroma is minimal with only a bit of floral hop aroma. Bitter start with this one but it does balance out with some nice sweet malts. Overall not a very flavorful beer and a style that I try to avoid.
Pros: Well balanced
Cons: It’s a pilsner (what makes it imperial?)
Alcohol Content: 5.7% ABV
