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.

2.75/5  rDev -25.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

22 ounce bomber split with my buddy Matt, who once again brought back new beers from 3 Floyd's and allowed me to try them with him.

Review written from notes taken Thursday (2 days ago). I believe this is their July seasonal, so this bottle is likely 4 months old, but there's no date on the bottle to either confirm that opinion or get an exact age for the purposes of this review.

Bottle poured into a standard pint glass at Matt's house.

A: Pours a remarkably hazy pale orange color. Carbonation is still visible, despite the yeasty "fog". A thick fluffy white head rises magnificently as the beer pours. Good head retention as well. This is a great looking beer.

S: Muted notes of barley sweetness. Not a lot to be found in the nose. Maybe a bit bready and a touch of toffee to be found, too.

T: Notes of toffee, bread, a touch of yeastiness. Rather mild. Hops are conspicuously absent. Perhaps due to age?

The sweetness here reminds me a bit of an Oktoberfest or Marzen. My buddy just told that this is supposed to be a "German Style" lager, so that makes sense.

M: Heavier than I'd expect from a lager. This probably goes hand-in-hand with the cloudiness. It leaves some stickiness behind on the finish.

D/O: Fun to try, but I feel little need to repeat in the future.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
