A - orangish amber with a thin, white head

S - orange peel, faint lager-y aroma

T - citrus, faint malt, lager-y

M - smooth, well carbonated, medium bodied

This is a nice lager from Three Floyds. The citrusy character and hints of orange peel really made this a treat. Lagers tend to be oversimplified, but the citrus here set this one apart from other dortmunders that I have had. This is really an enjoyable, lighter offering that is definitely worth a try.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Chill-hazed copper in color, with a sturdy two-inch head of off-white foam.
Aroma-Faint pale malt
Taste-Pale/toasted malt, nice floral hop note, subtle citrus rind. Good flavor and character for a lager, drinks and tastes like a pale ale, with a nice dose of noble hops. A crowd-pleasing, backyard brew.

Transparent golden reddish in color with a decent lingering head. Really subdued nose. A little sweet smelling but nothing about the glover is betrayed. Light crisp mouthfeel highly carbonated. There is a Clapton of flavor In this beer. Has that classic smooth pilsner taste but finishes with an assertive hop presence. Honestly it tastes like a slightly better noble pils by Sam Adams. Overall refreshing, tasty drinkable session beer perfect for a warm weather tailgate.

A - Pours a clear copper color with a two and half finger off white colored head minor retention.

S - Caramel malts molasses and hops.

T - I'm getting pretty much the same as what the smell was, not really much to it, you get a bit of the caramel malts but its mostly hops with a dry finish.

M - Light bodied, refreshing with moderate carbonation.

O - Pretty average coming from Three Floyds, I was kinda disappointed but its still a good beer.
