2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice golden pale straw color, clean finish and relative creaminess in the mouth. All in all, not a bad Pilsner, but while I like Pilsners, even if it is Three Floyd’s, it’s wayyyy overpriced at $11.99 for what an essentially basic style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at GABF 2011. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. The aroma is all classic Pils: honey, sweet malts, dustiness. The flavor is a rich mix of sweet biscuit malts, some honey, very dry, a light bitter hop. Nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Phone rate. $5 stein at the brewpub. Gold with a creamy 1 1/2 off-white, down to a thick coating film after a couple mins. Pasta and grassy noble hops up front, some biscuit malts behind. Flavor follows suit, not too hoppy, not quite what I expected considering the brewer. Clean dry finish, bitterness peaked at a 2. Low creamy carbonation with a light to medium body. Darn tasty, and a great start to the night. Beats Oskar Blues’ and Avery’s from the can, on par with Joe’s on draught.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden color in the glass. Lively carbonation on the tongue. Pretty traditional pilsener. I guess I was expecting something different from 3 Floyds. Smell is mellow hop. Taste is pretty generic and average. Finish is dry. Easy to drink, but nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a beautiful clear golden with a tall frothy foamy white head. Aroma is nicely balanced of slight metallic and cheese noble hop, biscuits and faint honey, little bit of soap, nice pilsner. Flavor follows, bit more than off-dry, metallic bitterness, medium full breadiness, floral hops smooth it all together, just a bit sharp sticky rich on the finish. Medium bodied, full feeling, bit glassy feeling with prickly carbonation.

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?

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.
