Pored from a bomber into a Stella Artois chalice.

A- Pours a rich Gold with a small bubbly white head that begins to dissipate shortly after it is poured. Many streaks of white bubbles can be seen rising from the bottom to the top of the beer. Incredibly murky, it is clear the only reason light is able to penetrate this beer is because of the color.

S- Sweet and hoppy with a grapefruit and orange like aroma. Some delicious crackery maltiness is apparent as well.

T- begins sweet with a clear malt presence moving quickly into a spicy bitterness from the noble hops. The bitterness is not very intense at all in fact this beer is very well balanced between both malt and hop flavors. Has a rich biscuityness to it that comes from the malts and a light fruitiness from the hops.

M- Very full feeling and smooth despite it's average carbonation. It feels almost silky on the tongue. The carbonation gives it a nice crisp ending.

O- A very enjoyable beer. I could see this being very awesome on a hot summer day. Very unique for a three floyds beer, definitely their least "weird"/most normal beer. It's good to see they didn't try to overload this one with hops like they do for many of their selections. I would definitely buy this again if it weren't for the hefty price.

Pour is very light straw color. No real head to speak of. Somewhat high carbonation. Hm doesnt look like much.

It smells sweet, like a good Munich Helles Should. Light and sweet. Corn syrup comes to mind. Light and a hint of floral hops.

Feels crisp, and loaded with cereal grains. Slight skunk flavor, but not as much as I would have thought for its age. So crisp and clean. Almost feels like a slightly heavy Kolsch. Reminds of a more crisp and clean Warsteiner Premium Verum.

22oz bottle.

Pours a slightly hazy golden straw with a small soapy white head that receded to a small collar.

Aroma is light sweet malts, doughy bread and some light fruity pears. Maybe a hint of hops, grassy for sure.

Taste is more grainy with some corn and toasted grains as well as the sweet bready malts. Spicy hop bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp and clean with strong carbonation.

A very good helles lager, one of the better I've had, which isn't a whole lot admittedly. Crisp and highly drinkable.

Reviewed from session notes.

A. Pours out a slightly hazy golden straw color with a lovely three fingers of rocky craggy head with decent retention but mild lacing.

S. Hopping aroma is primarily herbal and grassy tones on top of a mild biscuit aroma with a lesser aroma of corn.

T. Pretty standard grainy malt flavor but it finishes with some nice herbal and floral flourishes.

M. Lighter side of medium body, well carbonated, crisp yet smooth finish. Very nice mouthfeel.
