This may be the most impressive product released from 3F, and its all due to the subtletees of this brew rather than their traditional take no prisoners approach. The Floyds have pleanty experience with laggers despite limitted bottle and bar releases so they've had lots of time to practice for Jinx Proof.

A - cloudy pale yellow with lots of tiny carbonation bubbles rising to form a thick frothy head on the pour, and disipating to a wisper and retention.

S - a pronounced bouquet of grapefruit and alcohal which is balanced with the mouthfeel

T - this is a Dortmunder lagger but more, bigger taste, pleanty of carbonatin comes through, this is a very traditional beer but... more. Very pronounced malt, bready, bitter hoppy tones, simply delicious.

M - mouthfeel is most impressive as the flavor lingers for a long while leaving a pleasent coating on the palette.

Overall this reminds you of the time when you were a kid and tasted dads beer. Its so very traditional but... more. This may be one of the most impressive releases quite simply due to their back to the roots approach with Jinx Proof.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours a nice straw color with a good head. Smell was nice and clean, sort of a lager scent. Nice hops bitterness, not IPA like overpowering, but noticeable. Good mouthfeel. Overall, very good beer, I would drink a lot of this if it was available easily near me.
