4.35/5  rDev +18.5%

Ahh. It's so refreshing to have a well constructed American lager. They are few and far between, outside of Germany. This is one of the best lagers I've had, period. Not a huge surprise with the quality of FFF, even though it's only the second lager I've had from them.

The beer pours to a very light and clear golden with a huge sparkling carbonation. A billowy white head caps the beer off, but it doesn't last more than a minute. I had hoped to see a little more head retention here, especially given the abundant carbonation to feed it. Subsequently no lacing sticks to the glass.

The smell is fairly nondescript as well. Has the typical soft smells of a traditional German lager. Some dry pilsner malt with a light berry ester and a very slight vegetal aroma. Just enough hops to let you know they're there... and god knows it wouldn't be FFF without them.

The taste is simply delicious. Very crisp dryness up front with a bit of a doughy, biscuity pilsner malt flavor in the finish. Some flowers and berries in the finish, along with a sharp herbal hop. Not too bitter. The epitome of crisp, clean, and refreshing.

The mouthfeel is very crisp and light in body. The flavors meld wonderfully over the palate. Subtlety is a beautiful thing. I could drink this beer all day. This 22oz. bottle will go down within the next 5 minutes, I reckon.

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.
