look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Served on tap at Maria's Package Goods and Community Bar during Chicago Craft Beer Week.
A: Pours a nice hazy orange with a decent .5 finger, off-white head.
S: Immediately big malts hit the nose with a great yeasty back drop. Some sweetness is floating around, almost like a ripened fruit.
T: Slight sweet watermelon for a brief second follow by the intense malt roast in the middle. Bitter hops at the end, but not as pronounced other imperial pilsners.
M: Light/medium bodied with nice carbonation. Leaves a malty film over the mouth after each sip which tones down the bitterness.
O: Better than other Pilsners, but still just sort of an average beer. Nothing popped or stood out for me on this one.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass.
A - light yellowish-orange with almost no head after the pour and little carbonation.
S - sweet malt notes and light citrus aroma.
T - malt and an intense grapefruit bitterness; fairly straight forward.
M - A medium body and present alcohol feel.
O - a fairly straight forward Pilsner with a little more alcohol and a bit less skunky that usual for a pilsner. Good beer for a hot dog and ball game; though not what I usually choose for a type of beer.

A brew that's bright as well as mildly hazy sits a sort of medium yellow color in the glass. The head is pure white, neither large nor small but strong enough to put down some patchy lacing as it makes its way down the walls of the glass.
Even this pilsner has a distinctively 3 Floyds sense to it. It fits the style but stretches it a bit and sort of plays with it while remaining true. Biscuit and herb are the strongest notes, an even mix of hops and malts, and it has a brightness a pils really needs. A nice sulfur note and leaf add to it. It's a good size without going overboard, as big as a pilsner gets while identifying very much as one. Some are deeper, some have more complexity, some are more finely tuned, but this is undoubtedly good beer even if outside this brewery's wheelhouse, so to speak.
The feel is appropriately bright and crisp in a light-medium body. It's semi-dry without getting course, staying clean.
