Bottle from Rebekah. Thanks! Pours into my tulip a hazy light golden color. Half finger head, white and fluffy, but recedes quickly. Aroma of hay, sweet malt and honey, maybe some light fruits like apples and pears. Flavor is light straw, a little dirty lager flavor, them a nice burst of sweet fruit and honey-like malts. The flavor is very light and a sweetness remains on the palate. Light bodied, medium carbonation. Nothing super exciting but a solid pilsener overall that is pretty drinkable. This improves as it warms a little and some papaya and passion fruit comes out that is nice.

Poured from an undated 12 oz. bottle: cloudy, golden hue with foamy white head that dissipated quickly. According to a forum on this site, Three Floyds is now using freshness dates on bottles.

Faint noble hop aromas with a faint hint of lemon.

This lager has a rather unique flavor with an almost rounded ale like quality to it. The initial flavor has a yeasty and lemony flavor with a pleasant hop bitterness in the aftertaste. This lager actually tastes better as it warms. The crisp and refreshing taste is enhanced by some strong carbonation; in fact, the carbonation level was quite like that found in a wheat beer. This beer is flavorful but all over the place with its flavor profile.

Appropriately light bodied with a surprisingly solid mouthfeel. The carbonation was a touch too noticeable.

I have wanted to try this and was surprised to find a lone six pack at one the liquor barns in Louisville, KY. The sweet and balanced flavor is typical of a "Dortmunder" style but it takes a back seat to Great Lakes' Dortmunder.
