This pours a clear light bronze with 3 fingers of bubbly head that retains to a one inch crown and leaves nice lacing. Smell isn't overpowering - lemon grass, yeast, faint malts. Drink crisp and easy - this could be a refreshing session lager. Nice hop bite in the finish.

Overall, this is a solid lager that is smooth and easy drinkin'. Definitely worth a shot.

Im not going to say Im dissapointed but I did expect more for the price. This was the only 3 Floyds available, I wanted Zombie, so I bought it. I love Lagers and I'd give this one good marks, just not for the money.

A decent pour with a dissapointing head. I wouldnt write home to Mom about the lacing either.

The smell is a definite winner. A smooth hoppiness with a bit of "something". Whatever it is its good. Its really good. My nose isnt that good but this brew has a smooth something with the grains that will come to me eventually.

Its a pretty clear, honey, gold in the pint glass. Most definitely worth a few swirls in the light. Lagers are so pretty to look at.

There is a sweet graininess to the taste that leaves your mouth with a crisp satisfied feel. Crisp and just a tad dry. Its more satisfying then refreshing as a Lager should . No problems there. I was planning an ale with my food today, but you know what? I think this is a good food brew.

This is a good lager. I'd feel better about it if it came in $2.00 cheaper for the 6, "it was in the area of $11.99", I dont remember exactly cause Im more worried about taste and dates. By the 2nd one I might rate it higher but im going to stick with first impressions. A solid Lager, but never again for that money.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Straw yellow, 1/2 foamy head, some nice sticky lacing.

Smell - Caramel/toffee/buttery malts, lager malts for sure. Yeasty sugars, some fruits but mostly malts.

Taste - First sip starts out sweet with lager malts at center. Caramel and buttery malts are soon to follow. Has some floral fruits as a backbone, like apple and pear. Mildly bitter at the finish with a little sweet sugary note.

Mouthfeel - The malts really coat the tongue throughout the drink. Palate gets the reminding malts, along with a little hop bitterness. The aftertaste is a little sweet, hoppy dry.

Overall - Not a bad beer at all. A little different flavor for the style but still is a malt forward drink. Packs a punch for being under 6%, yet is still crisp and easy to enjoy.
