This refreshing continental-style pils has a light body combined with a pronounced noble hop aroma and a crisp dry finish. This is the perfect beer for easy, flavorful drinking. Brewed in collaboration with our friends at Jinx Proof tattoo in Washington, D.C.

Bomber poured into a pint glass. This is a solid golden color, fizzy with very little head. Smells include light caramel and some grassiness. Taste is grainy with a sweet finish. Alcohol is fairly low but somewhat noticeable.

This is another very solid summer session beer. Not too exciting, but very good nonetheless.

I got this bottle in an excellent trade with Alen. Thank you! 22oz bottle into my Trumer Pils glass.

The pour is attractive, mildly hazy straw yellow with a dense off-white head with good retention and some lacing.

The nose is quite excellent. I've never been a fan of any of Three Floyds' lagers, but this one is pretty close to spot on. Delicate bready and cracker malts dominated by an excellent noble hop character, with a blend of earth, lemon and fresh-cut grass. A touch of diacetyl is also noted.

The palate opens with a firm bitterness with a beautiful grassy, earthy and herbal hop character, along with a little lemon. The mid-palate has crackery and biscuit-malts with a grainy, husky character. I'm also getting a little citrus hop character, making me think this was a leaning little bit towards an American interpretation when fresher. Drying and bitter on the finish, there is an excellent hop bite. Remarkably flavorful, this light-bodied beer has high carbonation and is exceptionally drinkable. If only I could get this by the six-pack at a reasonable price, I'd be sold.

Not overwhelming hop flavor, I enjoyed the floral notes and subtle smell and taste of caramel or honey. Great beer, definitely one of my favorite 3 floyds brews.

Bottle shared by the other Matt recently. Thanks Matt! This beer is named for a tattoo parlor on M street in DC (Georgetown) that is across the street from a bar called Pizzeria Paradiso. The crew from Three Floyds gets their tattoos at this particular shop and so did my wife. She and the tattoo artist talked beer for the entire session. Cool place, if you like tattoos.

I also have to brace myself because this is a lager. I will end up with an insanely high rDev because unlike all of you I don't hate lagers.

Beer served in a becher of sorts. Beer is yellow with a very mild haze. Minimal head and mild lacing. Carbonation is moderate to low. Looks OK. I wanted more head and a little more carbonation.

The aroma is clean and mild. Very nice, mildly grainy and its a little sweet with some pilsner malt character.

Beer is medium to light in body, minimal carbonation in the mouth. Great mouthfeel with some estery notes and some minimal bitterness. The forward is mildly sweet but all is well connected, highly drinkable. A little bigger in the mouth would have improved it and a cleaner back palate presence. Overall a good lager and I would drink it again for sure.

12oz bottle from 6-pack purchased at the brewery two days ago. No bottle dating.

Clear, pale gold elixir poured in SA glass. One finger, thick, white head, tiny bubbles, heavy lacing.

Lemon zest, caramel, biscuit malt.

Well balanced, malt forward and a nice hop backbone. Lingering sweet bitterness.

Light, crisp, smooth. Refreshing.

More of a classic representation of the style. Not much of a 3Floyds' twist on this one, but a quality brew just the same.
