#5 1/24/14

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.

pours hazy golden yellow with a 1 finger white head that left some spotted lacing

smells of light fruity apples and light cereal grains and good amount of dry hopping i am guessing

taste i get a nice slap of hops upfront but they are gone so fast that it makes me angry they do not linger - hints of booze light apples and lemon fruit good amount of earthy spice then the bready cereal grains on the finish

mouthfeel is solid - lgiht/medium body with perfect carbonation

overall - enjoyed this beer but i do not see this beer being in the rotation mine or theirs

22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Scored the second to last bottle at my local beer store. I've never listened to Lair Of The Minotaur, but I'm pairing this beer with their album Evil Power, which this beer was obviously named after. My first music collaboration beer from Three Floyds.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours a bright golden yellow colored body, with about two fingers of soft fluffy bone white head.

S - Smell is of fresh clean pilsner malt, grains, wheat, lager yeast presence, lemongrass, some earthy herbal spice rack notes, and some earthy floral hop presence. Smells pretty nice, for an imperial pilsner.

T - Taste follows the nose: fresh clean malts, grains, wheat, grass, lager yeast, lemon, herbs, earth. Crisp carbonation, and medium bodied.

M - Feel ends dry with some lingering hop bitterness. An otherwise crisp, clean, and smooth brew.

Overall, a nice beer from Three Floyds. These guys don't regularly wow me, especially with many of their lighter styled beers, but they did it here. Crisp, medium bodied, but still manages to be drinkable and refreshing, even at 7.20% abv. Well done, Three Floyds.

Three Floyds Evil Power ---4/5.

I picked up two bottles of this at DLD right after grabbing my four bottles of DLD. I ended up opening both of them within the hour and sharing them with random BAs. It poured a thinner golden yellow in color with a sticky bright white head that laced my snifter. It smelled of sweet pale malts, bitter hops, honey, and lemons. I thought it was interesting. It tasted of sweet pale malts, light honey, and had a bitter lemony finish. It was well carbonated and drank well for the style. It was good, but I wouldn't say that it was My Antonia good. I meant to hold on to one of these for others to try but ended up opening my second bottle, only to talk football with a random BA for a half hour. Oh well, guess I'll have to go back to FFF.
