A - cloudy orange in color, 1/2" head which quickly turned into just a foamy outside rim

S - very citrusy, smells of wheat(?).. definitely not the lager smell i'm used to, let's hope the taste is as good!

T - very refreshing, citrusy, slight malts, slight bitterness.. not much there taste wise aside from the citrus, which makes this good for me since i'm not a huge fan of lagers

M - very crisp, sweet, tangy, refreshing. goes down very easy.

O - a very easy to drink beer, perfect for anytime. not much taste to it that makes this a "lager" but i think i like it better this way.

Smell - Great smell on this beer, very aromatic. Kind of funky/skunky smelling but that's FFF for you, they love their hops.

Taste is pretty smooth, you notice the hops but they are not to strong in this one. I get a faint sweet taste as the beer finishes.

Overall a very pleasant beer to drink. You could drink this beer all day long and not get tired of it.

Thanks to Thorpe429 for providing this in a recent trade.
Always a treat to try some Three Floyds product.

Had a 2 finger fizzy tight head that stayed for a short while and fell to a thin foam. The beer is a ever so slightly hazy straw/pale gold color. Decent sticky lace.

A grape like pale malt aroma. Some nice rounded hop aroma. A slight sweetness here.

Bitterness is more aggressive than anticipated and I like it. Initial bitterness gives way to a nice pale malt, lightly bready flavor. Middle sweetness for a moment and then a big bitterness in the finish.

Almost a creamy mouthfeel. Very mild carbonation.

Decent little beer.

A - pours a golden yellow with carbonation flowing up to the top of the glass. There are about two inches of foam with relentless retention

S- sweet without much depth

T- very unique taste. Slightly hoppy but almost dark

M- a bit malty

O - I'm disappointed, didn't enjoy this one.

Got this as an extra in a trade

The beer is very transparent with a straw yellow colored with a thick white head the laces well. The coronation is visible it looks like a beer you'd see in documentary.

The nose is subtle german hops slightly spicy and backed with light malts.

The taste matches the nose although the malt is up front sweet the becomes a very subtle hop spicy slightly earthy. The mouth is smooth and sticky at the end.

A solid beer

Not my style of beer. Thus not highly rated. unless you know and likethis style I would spend my money on any other 3 Floyd offering as all others are spectacular! I am a hophead so Zombie/Arctic/Dreadnaught even Gumball or better options for me! Even the A Cow is not bad!
