This refreshing continental-style pils has a light body combined with a pronounced noble hop aroma and a crisp dry finish. This is the perfect beer for easy, flavorful drinking. Brewed in collaboration with our friends at Jinx Proof tattoo in Washington, D.C.

Poured from the bottle into a Libbey style pilsner glass.

Deep brass golden to bronze orange body, quite clear, with nice amounts of carbonation, not too fine but also good and plentiful. Head is a nice simple bright white, not too tall easily making a simple soapy two fingers with a good leaving puck.

Aroma is a bit flawed. Mild hints of diacetyl and butter with a hint of lime. Muted dough and not really much else going out. It's actually an ok aroma but doesn't come off what I am looking for in a lager by any means.

Palate actually improves considerably. OIly hop and muted sense of crispness with a good big lime action on the mid palate. Hints of sweet dough, and much of the slick buttery character seems to be downplayed but still slightly present. There's a hint of it, but tolerable. The aftertaste has nice controlled almost explosive hints of mint and lime hop oil which is really nice. Classic crispness comes, but it's also wafer and a little papery malt thin like a rice cracker.

Overall and interesting take on a lager, but can't say I'd be repeating this in the future.

Not overwhelming hop flavor, I enjoyed the floral notes and subtle smell and taste of caramel or honey. Great beer, definitely one of my favorite 3 floyds brews.
