This was a pleasant surprise that FFF had a new beer without the heavy hop tones of their other beers. Had on tap at DLD 2011.

Appearance: Nice golden color with visible carbonation and crystal clear appearance.

Smell: Clean and refreshing

Taste: Crisp, reminded me of pilsners I have had in northern Germany, a nice alternative to the regular hoppy style of FFF

Mouthfeel: a cleansing affect as I still had a little taste of ZD on the tongue.

Overall: This was great surprise that they had introduced a new beer on DLD one that strays from their normal.

Only bad thing is Evil Power name is deceiving for this beer, after hearing the band Lair of Minotaur and reading that this was tribute to them I expected a beer that would hit you over the head with its IBU but was pleasantly surprised.

From a bomber into a pint glass. Color is rich gold with thick white foam and thick sticky lace on the glass.

Smell is heavy on malt and citrus

Taste follows well with a nice hop balance. Just a touch of spice as well.

Very light mouth feel. I would say the lightest for a 7+ abv beer that I can ever remember having. Super refreshing beer that would be awesome on a hot day!

Poured from a 22oz bottle to my Off Color Brewing tulip

Thanks to my neighbor John for the beer.

Well, pils are usually not my style of beer. I like 3 Floyd's and I like beer, and this was free beer.
The pour is orange with a nice white head. Very good retention and lacing. Looks like the classic beer look that you would see in commercials.

Smell is crisp and malt. Slight spice and citrus. Smells good

Taste is nice. Got a good fruit thing going with the malt. Very light, malty, citrus, and a slight black pepper spice.

Overall, if this was in cans, I'd drink this mowing the grass. This is a perfect outside, mindless beer. It has lots of taste and can be complex if you concentrate on the flavors. It can also be as simple as a Busch light with tons more flavor. Thirst quenching and satisfying. Floyd's should put this in cans or six pack of bottles. I could drink this all night, but at 7.2%abv I'd be shit faced in no time.

draft at the brewpub...

a: hazy golden-orange body, full head with lots of tiny bubbles, sticky lace

s: lots of sweet, pale lager malts but maybe a dash of toasty caramel, grassy and fermented citrus peel aromas, slight alcohol

m: carbonation moderate, body lighter but carrying something of a sweet stickiness

t: sweet pale lager malts with a light toasted grain edge, rich but in good balance with the grassy, moderately bitter noble hops, steeped citrus peel, a hint of alcohol, grainy, flavorful

o: this is a style I usually enjoy and the flavor set here is a nice one, something of a nice malt liquor quality, good start to finish, drinkable; a quick buzz is a nice way to set the tone for a night in the dunes

Hazy golden orange, frothy white foam on the surface, some minor flecks of lace in the glass.

Soft lemony aroma, very pleasant with a little angelfood cake in there too adding complexity.

Lemon and shortbread flavors, smooth and full bodied though crisp and drinkable. Lightly bitter hops seem almost balanced in the mix. This is great, wish it was in six packs instead of overpriced bombers.

Pours light golden and hazy in color with a big 2 finger white frothy head. Lots of carbonation and lots of lacing.

Smell has notes lightly sweet grainy malt and a good presence of floral herbal noble hop like aromas. Smells nicely balanced, yeast gives off a nice lemon rind scent that works well to tie it all together.

Taste is great. Some nice light grainy malt is forward followed by some great noble like hop flavors, herbal and spicy with a hefty amount of bitterness for the style. Yeast tastes clean and a very slight lemon rind flavor shows up on the exhale.

Mouthfeel is good, high carbonation and light feel is balanced out with some hoppy oils and bitterness that keeps this very drinkable but not to thin. There is a dry finish that I really enjoy also.
