Transparent golden reddish in color with a decent lingering head. Really subdued nose. A little sweet smelling but nothing about the glover is betrayed. Light crisp mouthfeel highly carbonated. There is a Clapton of flavor In this beer. Has that classic smooth pilsner taste but finishes with an assertive hop presence. Honestly it tastes like a slightly better noble pils by Sam Adams. Overall refreshing, tasty drinkable session beer perfect for a warm weather tailgate.

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.
