12 ounce bottle. Served in a pilsener glass, the beer pours a hazy orange/amber color with about a half inch off-white head that didn't stay around for too long. Not much lacing, either. Aroma is mostly bready and caramel malt, and also light some floral hops and nuts. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there wasn't as much hoppiness as I expected for a Three Floyds brew. With that being said, it's still tasty. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and easy enough to drink. Not sure if I'd pay $10.99 a 6-pack for this again, but it's a good brew and I'm glad I got to try it.

Pours a nice amber coloring despite the expectation. Very carbonated, very bubbly, Im sure this adds to the crisp, refreshing feel.

The scent is of caramel malts with sweet malt. Nice but lending to metallic, the aroma is malty and toasty.

Very crisp, very refreshing, the taste is light and easy. Some caramel, malt, and cereal grains its easy but simply too light.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a brilliant dark copper brown with a foamy one inch cream head that dissipates slowly, leaving spotty lacing.

Amber malt, grain, and floral hops form the initial aroma. There's a bit of toasted bread character, along with a hint of lemon and rose petals.

The fruity, slightly citrusy character begins the flavor profile, which turns extremely bready, nutty, and toasted mid palate. When mixed with floral hops, the citrus character becomes cherry-like. There's a hint of grapefruit that carries throughout, into the slightly dry finish.

Body is moderate to a touch full, with moderate carbonation and a grain astringency bite.

Good malt character, albeit somewhat overly toasted. Darker than expected. The fruity character was unexpected and offputting. I had this on tap a while back and remember it being much lighter in color...

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

355ml brown glass bottle with standard branded pressure cap served into a generic glass in me hotel room in Chicago. Reviewed live. Expectations are high given the brewery.

Served straight from an ice bath. Side poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a half finger beige colour head of thin consistency, fair thickness, no cream, and okay retention, Body colour is a dull nontranslucent copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Light pale and caramel malts. Light floral hops. Simple and underwhelming.

T: Clean caramel malts, pale malts, and floral hops. Not a whole lot of depth of flavour here. Decent balance. I do like it in a general sense. No yeast character or alcohol comes through. Decently executed.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Decent thickness. Fair carbonation. Suits the flavour profile fairly well. Decent presence on the palate.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable, if underwhelming. Hides its ABV well. I wouldn't get it again, but it's a nice little lager. Well done and easy to drink. I do like it. Tasty for a lager. Doesn't quite live up to Three Floyds' rep, though.

C+

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Excellent foam. Grapefruit copper in color. Not a whole lot of carbonation. Very thick for a lager.

Smell: Sweet/sour lemon.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Lots of lemon with a hint of brown sugar in the finish. Quite flat compared to rest of beer, but there's a slight sizzle that I like.

Overall Drinkability: An interesting lager that has a few ale qualities.
