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

A-Clear yellow some carbonation, one finger head.

S-Grass, wheat, lemon, some hops, earthy notes and bread.

T-Grass, lemon, mild hops and bitterness. Then in the finish there is a flavor I can't pin does but it throws off the balance. Maybe bubblegum?

M-Medium bodied, well carbonated, semi-dry finish and crisp.

O-The balance is thrown off, not sure what the flavor is but it hurts the beer.

Deep crystal clear golden color with an impressive faintly yellow head of 3 inches. Pillowy and thick blanketing my tulip as it fades.

Phenol alcohol aromas, crackery, bready with hints of toffee and caramel. Some earthy and floral hop presence with a bit of spicy character.

I like this had it at Dark Lord Day and was dissapointed. Now it seems to have mellowed out in the mouth and much more caramel and toffee sweetness is coming though in the middle and finish. Crackery in the middle finishing with the classic noble hop flavors. A bit spicey, a floral and earthy. Mouth is creamy and decadent and alcohol only shows slightly in the chest.

1 PINT 6 FL OZ bottle
Served in my new Firestone Walker Pivo Pils glass

A - It pours a clear golden color. I thought I made my standard pour, and the off-white head grew beyond the capacity of my glass and slid down the side.

S - It has the aroma of a European beer. I get some grain, grass, and metal.

T - This is a flavorful beer. I taste some caramel malt along with some floral hops. It finishes with a mild bitterness that is almost metallic.

M - Moderate. It is not watery which is good.

O - It has the taste of a European pils on but beefed up. It has plenty of flavor but not the flavors that I find pleasing. If you are into this style you will probably like it.

I grabbed this one up at DLD this year. Well, actually my lovely wife did. So a big thanks to her!

A- Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow, more so at the end of the bottle. Nice white head, has really good retention and leaves a bit of spotty lacing.

S- Quite a bit of bready malts here. A bit floral and spice in the hops. Not really anything else.

T- Pretty bready, light hops and pretty boring. Nothing really out of the ordinary here. Pretty disappointed in this one.

M- A tad bit on the fuller side of medium and carbonation was right on.

O- I guess maybe I had a higher expectations for this one. I found this one pretty boring.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: straw yellow, finger head, solid lacing.

S: mild clean grain, hint of citrus

T: light sweet grain and malt, mild grassy/pine finish

M: light/med body, good carbonation

O: Not usually a huge fan of this style, but thought FFF created a solid brew. Nice summer brew; still think ales are their bread n' butter. I think I was expecting either more hops, more grassy/pine or more citrus, almost tried to do a little bit of all three. Maybe my palate is just wacked, who knows?

I could have a few, the abv is hardly noticeable.

SOLID, BUT NOT A MUST HAVE!

650ml bottle. Poured into a snifter 9/27/2014.

A- Burnt clear orange body, two finger white head that sticks around for a long while.

S- Bread, biscuits, a hint of caramel, floral and earthy.

F- Very grainy breadiness, a little caramel, crisp earthy, grassy notes with a bitter floral finish. This is very hoppy but in a different way than Three Floyds' other offerings. It's a hopped up pilsner which I can appreciate.

M- Medium bodied, a bit too thick even for an imperial pilsner. It's also very bitter with a floral, earthy bitter finish, a consequence of the overly generous hopping regimen.

O- Solid, tasty and a nice one to split with friends. Price isn't right, but if you like your big pilsners with a lot of hops, this is one you should consider buying.

Thanks to funkyaudio for the beer! Poured from bomber into a tulip glass. Pours a deep dark golden pour, with a healthy bright white head, laces well throughout. Aromas are vibrant florals and lemons with pale malts, bread, and biscuits in addition to some lemon, pine, and florals that round out well. Bready and biscuits, that moves into some lemon and florals, grass, some sweetness. Soapy, touches of more lemon, with a light rind. Medium bodied beer and decent carbonation throughout. There was some bite which ultimately leads to the overall taste that went flat all of a sudden. A major disappointment for such a big hyped beer coming out of Dark Lord Day. Not one of my top 3F beer here...

A- A clear, yellow-orange liquid with numerous streams of rising carbonation. The white head is very thin and splotchy.

S- Fruity with notes of apples and pears as well as some citrus and grass. A little simple, but pretty appealing considering the style.

T- Fruits such as apples, strawberries, and peaches are noticeable. There is a sweet bread aspect that keeps the hop bitterness in line.

M- An adequate carbonation presence with a lingering hop bitterness.

O- For the ABV, this drinks pretty well. I feel that this beer is about on par for the style.

22oz, Bottled 5/11/13
Doom glass

A: Pours a slightly hazy yellow color. Later of bright white head. Sticky lacing sheeting. Good carbonation.

S: Clean Noble hops. Grassy. Crisp biscuity malts. Some lemon peel.

T: You do get some crisp bitterness on the tip of the tongue. Definitely that grassy, grainy Noble hop and malts that you come to recognize for the style. Do get some light citrus. Finish is crisp and clean. Drinks like a much lower abv brew.

M: Light leading to medium. There is a little body there. Little thicker than regular pils.
