On draft at the Girl and the Goat in Chicago, IL. Poured into a pilsner glass.

A: Cloudy,l dark golden color. I got about a half finger bright white head by the time the waitress got it to the table.

S: Smells like Euro noble hops and maltiness. I get some sweet grains and "some" of that normal heavy handed FFFs hop additions.

T: This tastes like a well made pilsner brew. Crisp and refreshing and sessionable. Grassy Czech hops and mild malt. This would be a perfect BBQ beer for summer drinking events.

M: Light bodied, easy drinking. No bitterness.

O: Very well done for the style.

12Oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A- Pours crystal clear golden orange with a half finger of quickly dissipating head. Good visible carbonation.
S- Smells very grainy and smells like lager yeast. Some light fruity esters. Not a lot to it but quite pleasant.
T- Taste is also very grainy and light but still fairly complex. Tastes like a Dortmunder with a traditional three floyds american hoppy flair. Not a strong flavor but well balanced in all aspects and has great drinkability.
M- This beer has a great all around feel, moderate bitterness, low ABV, good carbonation and a refreshing taste, A session-able brew that I could down a lot of easy. Likely bottle conditioned.
O- This is a good refreshing brew with a light taste and feel to go good with any occasion and is drinkable by just about anybody.

A - Pours a hazy golden-yellow color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a fairly slow pace leaving behind some good lace.

S - Aroma is a mix of citrus hop and lemon peel with some pilsner malt. There is some pine, lager esters, and a bit of biscuit and grain.

T - Starts off with some pilsner and buttery malt with some grassy hop and mild bitterness. Through the middle some floral hop with some lager yeast comes through with some grain. The finish is a mix of pilsner malt, grain, biscuity malt, with some earthy and floral hop.

M - Medium bodied with moderate-plus carbonation. Feels smooth with a clean and lightly lager yeasty finish.

D - Very drinkable. Very nice example of a Dortmunder with some nice noble hops. Really smooth and very sessionable.

Pours a cloudy gold with a finger and a half of head which quickly dissipates into a thin ring which persists throughout. Smell is of light, sweet malts with a little bit of spicy breadiness and a touch of pear, almost like a wheat beer. There is a large hop bitterness not evident in the nose, pushing the malt profile to the back of the palate. With no hop on the nose, I find the bitterness more detrimental than anything to my enjoyment of the beer. This is a bit more aggressively hoppy than I like my lagers, which seems to be par for the course from FFF.

Our Three Floyds Brewpub Experience continues with this offering. It pours a lightly hazy straw topped by a finger of white micro-foam. The nose comprises wheat, light rice (I know, I know, how much lighter can rice get, right?), and some very light bits of lemon zest and coriander. The taste holds notes of wheat, flowers, and light greens. The hop character is decidedly subdued. The body is a sturdy light, with a light moderate carbonation and a crisp, dry finish. Overall, a solid Dort, though nothin' entirely special.

Great head and great foam that last for all twelve ounces. Copper and pale pilsner yellow mixed to almost perfection. Love the bubbling.

Light toasted malt with pilsnery malt and lots of earthy and citrusy hops. Like a bitter American verion of a classic Dortmunder lager.

Hoppy citric goodness with toasty biscuits, bread crust. Fluffy and resiny palate. Hard to belive its a lager. But tastes and feels pretty good.

Bottle poured into a shaker glass.

Pours a golden yellow with very little cloudyness. Head is slightly off white and lingers.

Smell is slightly malty.

Taste is fairly clean with the malt sweeness and a typical dortmunder finish.

A solid beer that fits the style well.
