Thanks to Matt for the bottle!
First off, I'll just say that I am not a big fan of lagers at all. I like a good schwarzbier once in a while, but that's about it. This bottle was kept cold, but was just over 3 months old. I decided to go for it anyway, keeping my expectations low.
Hazy orange-amber pour into a FFF teku, topped with a small white head that held at a medium collar and laced the glass nicely. The aroma was a bit off-putting at first, sort of stale, lager yeast, floral notes, toasted grains. I warmed up to it eventually. Taste...was actually surprisingly pretty good! Toasted grains, floral hops that were still pretty crisp and fresh, some leafy tea flavor as well. That's about all I can say about it. Pretty simple, pretty good. Crisp, dry mouthfeel, medium body.
After the thoroughly disappointing Dissenter, this was a pleasant surprise. I really was just planning to take a sip and dump this, clearing up some room in the fridge, but darn it, I drank the whole thing and enjoyed it. I gotta say, this is honestly one of the best lagers I've had.

A - Pours a hazy gold with a one-finger white head. Clean with no lacing.
S - Bready aroma, grassy, and light sweet malts.
T - Taste follows the aroma. Biscuits, sweet malts, grassy hops, and light citrus. The flavors are very clean.
M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very crip mouthfeel.
O - Very refreshing beer. A simple enjoyable lager.

Slightly hazy with orange hue. Tasty for a lager with a bit of biscuit taste. Hoppy for a lager with that slightly skunky finish. Can taste the alcohol as well, however it all comes together fairly well. My least favorite of three Floyd's which is a phenomenal brewery.

Purchased a six pack from the brewery. Pours a straw/yellow color, and lots of bubbles can be seen rushing to the surface. The head is short (especially for a 3 Floyds beer). The nose consists of bread, grain, and a touch of fruit, and there's a bit of skunk in there too. The taste begins rather sweet with pronounced grain but finishes heavy on the bread/biscuit flavors. This beer is quite crisp and easy to drink. As I haven't had more than a couple Dortmunder beers, I can't say whether this is really remarkable, but it is refreshing. While I tried it solely because it's a 3 Floyds beer, it's not one that I would seek out again, probably just because I'm not that interested in the style.

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.
A - Poured a nice chill hazy straw hue with a one and a half finger head that faded to leave some nice creamy side lacing and a fat halo.
S - Aromas of biscuits, lightly sweet malts, faint grassy hops, loads of lager notes.
T - Taste is more of the biscuits, nice fruity floral notes, grassy earthy hops, light citrus, good lager fruit notes too. Quite pleasant and drinkable, good flavours.
M - Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, nice carbonation.
O - Overall this was a treat, quite a well executed Dortmunder!
