Pours a clear, copper color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of pale malt, sweet malt, slight hops, and slight yeast. Fits the style of a Dortmunder / Export Lager. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, sweet malt, hint of wheat, slight hops, slight biscuit, and slight yeast. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, and blend. One of the better Dortmunders I've ever had.

Thanks to Matt for the bottle!

First off, I'll just say that I am not a big fan of lagers at all. I like a good schwarzbier once in a while, but that's about it. This bottle was kept cold, but was just over 3 months old. I decided to go for it anyway, keeping my expectations low.

Hazy orange-amber pour into a FFF teku, topped with a small white head that held at a medium collar and laced the glass nicely. The aroma was a bit off-putting at first, sort of stale, lager yeast, floral notes, toasted grains. I warmed up to it eventually. Taste...was actually surprisingly pretty good! Toasted grains, floral hops that were still pretty crisp and fresh, some leafy tea flavor as well. That's about all I can say about it. Pretty simple, pretty good. Crisp, dry mouthfeel, medium body.

After the thoroughly disappointing Dissenter, this was a pleasant surprise. I really was just planning to take a sip and dump this, clearing up some room in the fridge, but darn it, I drank the whole thing and enjoyed it. I gotta say, this is honestly one of the best lagers I've had.

A - Pours a hazy gold with a one-finger white head. Clean with no lacing.

S - Bready aroma, grassy, and light sweet malts.

T - Taste follows the aroma. Biscuits, sweet malts, grassy hops, and light citrus. The flavors are very clean.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very crip mouthfeel.

O - Very refreshing beer. A simple enjoyable lager.

Slightly hazy with orange hue. Tasty for a lager with a bit of biscuit taste. Hoppy for a lager with that slightly skunky finish. Can taste the alcohol as well, however it all comes together fairly well. My least favorite of three Floyd's which is a phenomenal brewery.

Purchased a six pack from the brewery. Pours a straw/yellow color, and lots of bubbles can be seen rushing to the surface. The head is short (especially for a 3 Floyds beer). The nose consists of bread, grain, and a touch of fruit, and there's a bit of skunk in there too. The taste begins rather sweet with pronounced grain but finishes heavy on the bread/biscuit flavors. This beer is quite crisp and easy to drink. As I haven't had more than a couple Dortmunder beers, I can't say whether this is really remarkable, but it is refreshing. While I tried it solely because it's a 3 Floyds beer, it's not one that I would seek out again, probably just because I'm not that interested in the style.
