3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a light golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is nicely noble hopped, some citric character and breadiness along with a soft cereal grain note. Flavor is again nicely noble hopped, very nice herbal spicy hoppiness along with a touch of citric, some breadiness before a crisp clean finish. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Nice pils, along the lines of prima pils and avery joes

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A brand spanking new 12 ounce bottle pours a hazy golden with a minimal white foam head. Slightly skunky floral notes are predominant, with a side of bread. Several sips reveal medium sweetness followed by lingering medium bitterness. The body is light, but the lively carbonation accentuates the bitterness of the Noble hops. Very happy to see this and Zombie Dust in six packs. Will the Admiral follow?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint at the brewpub. Hazy and yellow gold. This has quite a lot going on, especially for the style. Honey, lots of citrus, grass, and malt. Noble hops arevevident but American ones, too. Some nice sugary sweetness at the finish. As nice a Pils as I have had.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, brand new 6-pack release
Pours rich hazy gold with sudsy head and some of the best retention I’ve ever seen on an American lager. Aroma is sweet bready malt and spicy hops. So damn bready you just want to slather some butter on it and dig in! Taste is crisp and refreshing (even from the bottle) and is the perfect balance of spice and bread. Body is light, frothy, lively carbonation, dry refreshing finish. Overall, an incredibly delicious pils and a fantastic addition to 3F’s 6-pack lineup.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. The aroma is light fruity, has grass and maltiness. Hazy, golden coloured beer with a lasting, medium white head. The taste is light bitter (but quite bitter for the style), malty, grassy hoppy. Nice session beer. Light bodied.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pineapple and grape notes in the aroma. Pineapple, grapefruit bitterness and a small herbal touch in the aftertaste. Good balance, but some strange notes in the taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from brewdog webshop.
Pours golden with a white head.
Hoppy of oranges and grass. Good but unbalanced. Not true to the style at all.

I was very happy to be able to taste this thanks to stormking47, bomber poured into an ale glass.
A - a light golden w/ good clarity and minute bead, small amounts of lace cling and the retention is good
S - The nose has smooth floral notes with light herbal accent and mild sweet element from the malt and yeast
M - a pretty smooth and lightly bitter feel as you might expect for this style w/ simple texture and moderately high carbonation
T - The lemony floral flavor of noble hops is what I get from this with a gentle malt body and taste the mellow sweetness lets the flavor of the hops shine and the carbonation level makes is seem refreshing even more as the finish is clean
D - a quenching tasty dort, not a complex style to begin with but it is great in its simplicity and this is a very good representative of the style if a little hoppy -who cares it is flavorful
