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.
