3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewpub. Golden straw colored pour with a thick white head. Aroma of pils malt, mild spice, lots of bread with a nice hoppy twinge. Flavor is bready with a formidable citrus and earth hop presence. Bready, doughy, mild pepper in there as well. Nice, crisp. Lots of yeast and floral hop presence. I’m enjoying it. Refreshing body, finishes with a bitter hop note.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
draft, Pours clear straw yellow with dense white head. Aroma has nice floral
notes with hint of lemon citrus. Really great vibrant hoppy nose,
Flavors have a stiff floral and citrus with green notes, bready malt
base that’s tight, good peppery bitterness throughout, really crisp
pils bordering dortmunder style. Really bright citrusy and juicy
finish. Pretty assertive bittering here which is a bit much for the
style but if the bitterness was toned down a tad this would be a 4+
this is really good

On draft at 3 Floyds, oured a light yellow color, aromas of bread, light spice, and some hay. Flavors are the same, like a classic pils with some light spice thrown in. Decent beer overall.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint in dimpled mug at the brewpub. Almost clear golden straw. A small off white layer of foam. Droopy lacing. Soft noble hops dominate but do not over power. They are actually almost subtle. malts are even softer and are pale malts. A hintbof honey is noted. Hop bitterness is moderate and those hops are dry, lightly fruity, and have gentle sulfur. This brewpub seems to include attitude in their beets but this one has it in short supply. It is a well hopped Pils, though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A rare miss for the Floyds. While I can’t flame to be a Pilsner fan to begin with, this was a disappointment regardless. Watery, dull and fairly forgettable. Good for washing down wings or anything else that you don’t want to overpower.
