Beer Review #159
The Kaiser Imperial Oktoberfest Lager from their Dictator Series. I previously reviewed The Maharaja (review #115) from the same series, as well as Raspberry Sour (review #120) and Vanilla Bean Stout (review #134).
Coming in at 9.5%ABV The Kaiser is an Oktoberfest beer on crack. Surprisingly pale copper in color, the beer nevertheless pours with a huge head of creamy white foam.
The beer is fruity (banana bread) and spicy (clove) in that Belgian kind of way, finishing sweetly on the back of the pallet. Smooth all the way down. Its basically a mellowed out tripel.
