Poured from bomber (no date stamp) into dimpled mug. Pours a yellow-golden colored body mostly clear, but with a slight haze. Finger-width, fizzy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing throughout the session. Aroma is a lightly sweetened grainy, pils malt with a light herbal hop backing. Flavor is a richer grainy malt with a medium sweetness. A touch of bread and honey as well as a light fruit come in during the middle before this finishes with a light to moderate level of herbal, grassy bitterness and a pinch of spice. Dry and crisp with a somewhat flat lingering aftertaste which was disappointing to me especially coming from 3F. Medium body, smooth, and a soft carbonation. Overall, this tasted like a regular macro pils. Its straightforward brew that provides a crisp and hop bitterness. Definitely an unusual release from FFF, but it proves to me that they're not just all about the juicy hop and malty bombs. Good point there.

A-Has a golden straw color with small head that dissapates quickly

S-Has a slight citrus smell

T- Tastes like a watered down budweiser

M-Light Bodied

D- This is the 1st 3 floyds beer i have not liked. I would of rather been drinking a Crisp Budweiser then this. Just tasted like a watered down amercan lager. Not much flavor or much of anything going on.

On tap in a pint glass at Bodega on 10/21/11

Cloudy tangerine and straw hue. Poured a thin wispy head. Some lace that doesn't hold.

Thin aroma - toasted grain and faint buttered biscuit. grassy hops and watery orange peel. More full of flavor. Modest hop kick turns to grains aplenty and grass. Toast with a hint of butter. Some lingering bitterness with a prickly feel on the finish. Lemongrass. Medium-light body for the style. Appropriately lively carbonation.

Easy enough to drink. Enjoyable but not amazing. Too bitter a finish.
