3.36/5  rDev -7.4%

A - Pours a clear copper color with a two and half finger off white colored head minor retention.

S - Caramel malts molasses and hops.

T - I'm getting pretty much the same as what the smell was, not really much to it, you get a bit of the caramel malts but its mostly hops with a dry finish.

M - Light bodied, refreshing with moderate carbonation.

O - Pretty average coming from Three Floyds, I was kinda disappointed but its still a good beer.

Got this as an extra in a trade

The beer is very transparent with a straw yellow colored with a thick white head the laces well. The coronation is visible it looks like a beer you'd see in documentary.

The nose is subtle german hops slightly spicy and backed with light malts.

The taste matches the nose although the malt is up front sweet the becomes a very subtle hop spicy slightly earthy. The mouth is smooth and sticky at the end.

A solid beer

Golden hued with a tightly knit half inch off white head. Brussels lacing. Aroma of light bready grains and Dortmunder yeast is present. The flavor is packed with sourdough bready grains and gentle lager yeast. The mouth is fairly dry,quaffable,and crisp.

Thanks dannyfrost!

Clear golden yellow and orange with a thin vanilla ice cream colored head. Spots of lacing left down the glass.

The aroma is a simple combination of freshly baked bread, dry biscuits, grass, and a bit of floral hops.

Limited hop flavor though moderately bitter along with simple though pleasant grain and bread character. There's also an underlying grass and floral flavor rounding things out nicely.

Medium mouthfeel, disappearing--crisp and refreshing.

A good, incredibly drinkable, Dortmunder lager. This would be great outdoors at a ballgame on a hot day.

A very nice semi chill hazed bright golden hue with a fine layer of white head, sampled first at a local BA gathering. Aromatics some mild citrus notes, but a really nice bready cereal grain note that was really inviting in the warm weather. Not crazy complex big or bitter just a nice Dortmunder style, fairly different compared to the standard I judge all other export style lagers to, Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold. But this was well made clean crisp with a great toasted breadiness, amongs the herbal citric hop additions, made to style and it shows why 3Fs is successful not just because of their big beers, but they actually know how to brew. Mouthfeel was lighter bodied ample carbonation for style flows nicely, I'm wishing I had access to a couple bombers of this or any 3Fs for that matter. Overall experience was a great way to start things out highly quaffable refreshing and goes to show not every great beer has to be on everybody's White Whale list.
