12oz bottle sent to me by demcorhip, who is my amazing FFF connection. Poured into a pint glass.
I should have been more careful pouring this one, I poured my normal vigorous pour, but had a bit of an overflow. So: Massive 3 inch soapy head capping a hazey orange-copper beer, recedes slowly and leaves a sticky mess of lace on my glass. Lots of carbonation in this one, with a more careful pour this would be a very pretty beer to look at. Aromas of lavender, lilac, citrus zest, yeast, and vanilla with a barely traceable malt backbone.
Taste is very mellow, with some bready notes holding up the vanilla. Citrus and floral hops with a little bit of pine in there as well, liquorice, herbal. Mandarin orange and a little lemon sourness to round it off. More complex than the average "Mild Ale". Mouthfeel is fairly thin, and carbonation isn't overbearing in the mouth. Slightly drying finish, but not extremely so. This is drinkable to a T. My final verdict on this is that it's much like a watered down Alpha King, it has a lot of the same flavours, but they're much more muted. A well made ale, but it dosen't take it to the next level. That's what the rest of the Three Floyds lineup is for.
