3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks TampaBrew for the share. Pours light yellow with haze and a white head. Nose is bread, light malt, some sweetness, some citrus, and some prickly hops. Flavor is similar to nose with a refreshing air and a lovable thirst-quenching quality. Enjoyable for a pils. Medium body and lingering malt/ bitter finish.

22 oz bottle. Not quite clear toasty orange. Coaxes up a small white head. Nose is dough, honey and faint lemon peel. Medium body with zesty carb. Nicely drinkable; not as heavy as expected. Tastes like it smells but not overdone. Apple juice with soft bready bitterness.

nose is of sweet grains and subtle floral hops. appearance is lightly cloudy gold. flavor is herbal with some floral hops and smacks of honey. palate is wet but pleasing. sweetness is a bit obtrusive after a spell and things start to feel grainy as well.

Sampled from 22oz bottle courtesy of Andy. Appearance is a nice rich gold with no real head. Nose is rice and malt at first but a nice Muscat and concord grape flavor builds on the nose and tongue. This one started bad but I ended up enjoying this pretty well.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle and served in a pilsner glass: Clean golden hue with a lasting frothy white head which left sheets of lace upon the glass. The aroma has notes of grainy malts, herbal continental hops, hint of spice and veggies. The taste has a smooth combination of light hop bitterness offsetting the biscuity malt. Some herbal spiciness and twangy dragonfruit as well. The taste is not cardboardy nor DMS as I feared from the nose. The mouth feel is lively and moderately crisp, refreshing. A solid entry into the world of finesse biers by a brewer know more for extreme beers. Far better than the retired Burnham Pilsener or the Calumet Queen and even better than Gorch Fock Helles which is slightly hopped up for the genre. Well played Floyds, I am going to get me more.
