A - Pours a clear copper color with a two and half finger off white colored head minor retention.

S - Caramel malts molasses and hops.

T - I'm getting pretty much the same as what the smell was, not really much to it, you get a bit of the caramel malts but its mostly hops with a dry finish.

M - Light bodied, refreshing with moderate carbonation.

O - Pretty average coming from Three Floyds, I was kinda disappointed but its still a good beer.

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into my pokal glass, this beer pours a cloudy, hazy medium to dark golden color with a bit of a copper hue and lots of little bubbles rising up to the beer's surface. Has a nice white head that is about 2/3 inch thick when first poured that settles to a solid 1/4 inch. Pretty decent lacing too. Aromas of caramel malt, a bit of citrus zest and spice and not much else. Tastewise there are sweet caramel malt notes along with some citrus hop bitterness, but the sweetness certainly seems stronger than the hop notes, and there is a bit of some type of peppery spice flavor present as well. A faint but noticeable hint of cinnamon or clove perhaps? Seems strange for this style of beer, the flavor profile isn't quite what I am used to or was expecting from this style of beer. Don't know if that's intentional on the part of 3 Floyds here or not. I like the flavor profile as it is quite tasty, just not sure if it is correct for this style of beer. Has a crisp, smooth, frothy, medium to full bodied mouthfeel with moderate to heavy carbonation. Easy to drink in the way good beer should be. An interesting beer here to be sure.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - light copper, pencil thin white head that dissipates quickly

S - Barley, biscuity, grain, touch of sweetness

T - initially: much like the nose. finish: moderate bitter (4/10) noble hop, acid tingles tongue

M - medium body, little bit of froth, viscosity is high

O - flavor isn't huge, did like the touch of sweetness, nose was mellow - i have to admit I'm still working on my lager game.

Can Three Floyds make a decent Lager?

Pours out a nice, lighter amber color with 3 fingers of a fluffy white head.

The aroma is mainly some bready and caramel malt notes with some nice, subtle floral hop notes as well.

The first notes are very crisp and refreshing; there are some floral hop notes and a little bit of spicy notes from the Noble hops. A decent amount of bready and caramel malt notes that provide most of the flavor for the beer.

The body is medium and the mouthfeel is very crisp and clean.

This would make for a great summer beer, but it's not the most complex or best beer in the world. There is some bitterness, but it's very clean and refreshing beer to drink. A very good representation for this style.
