Notes/Commercial Description:
A light golden colored Franconian style Helles Lager. With a slightly sweet malt body, a noble hop profile and a crisp finish this beer is as traditional as we’ll ever get.

3.08/5  rDev -16.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance- Poured into a pint, very slightly hazy golden color with 2 fingers of clumpy white head. A little lace.

Smell- A hint grainy, earthy hops, subtle grape and banana. Simple, admittedly even the flavors noted may be a bit of a stretch.

Taste- Slightly grainy again. With earthy sided hops, slightly zesty, but again extremely simple. A touch of grape again. Slight diacetyl.

Mouthfeel- Medium light body, medium carbonation. Mildly refreshing.

Overall- This is Three Floyds!?!? I have had a recent lager renaissance, and this one just seems dull in comparison to most. A relatively “simple”, traditional style, but I feel they missed the mark on this one. I don’t think there should be any diacetyl in this style. Their patented citrus hop twist would have been welcomed by me. Well, they all can’t be winners.

bomber poured into tulip cup

A- Pale straw yellow with good carbination and white head. No lacing
S- Many levels of maltyness
T- Classic pale German Lager taste. Layers of malt... sweet.. little bitter
M- Bit more on the wet than dry side for a lager. Good carbination.

O- Good for the german lager style. Not my go-to style, so I may be under-rating this beer.
