A: Pours a very pale yellow hue. Head is rather light with no lace noted. S: Light biscuit malt, wet hay, and light herbal hops in the aroma. T: Light malty sweetness. Hints of corn, honey, toast, and herbal hops. M: On the lighter side. Fairly smooth and crisp. D: Pretty good. Not one of my favorite styles, but this one is pretty tasty.

Nose has malt, yeast, citrus and pear(reminds me of a trippel.) Hazy yellow, tiny white head. Fine malt flavour, yeast, citrus and pear(again.) Medium bodied, very well balanced, nice tongue tingle. Great! Thanks Mabel and Jerc.

bottle by way of ajm on 12/20/2009. hazy pour of yellow with a small white head. there’s something in the aroma that oddly smells like stale urine... once i get past that there are notes of grass, herbs, green apples, grain and peppery spice. the flavor is quite pils-y... weird mix of the aroma with a touch of malty sweetness and some vegetal notes. a dry peppery finish with a mineral-y aftertaste make it very drinkable even though the body is a bit fuller than expected (or that i like in the style). 7/4/7/3/15/3.6

Bottle generously shared by ajm -- many thanks! Pours straw in color with a fair white head. Does everything a pilsener should. Smells and tastes of grass, faint citrus, and mineral water. Reminds me of Germany. Nice job, 3F -- especially on the label!

Bottle from a trade with FlssmrBrewAlum. Pours hazy straw color with white head. Grassy, cereal malt aromas. Lightly sweet grainy malt flavor with some grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with lively carbonation. Thanks Adam.

22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear light golden color with a small white head. The aroma is pretty mild, mainly grainy pale malt and light fruits. The flavor is grainy malt, light fruit, perhaps some earthy hop notes. This is from FFF right? I remember having trouble deciding what type of beer we were drinking. There wasn’t anything off with this, just nothing really going on. This would have to be listed as a disappointment. nose of pils malt, leathery hop notes. flavors are grainy, leathery, sweet pils malt. solid pils.

Bottle from the brewery. I wish this had been fresher because this is very well made. Nose of spent grain, grass, lemon peel. Color was a hazy yellow gold. Flavor was clean, grassy, almost Saaz-like with a mineral, refreshing finish. Really my cup of tea. I hope Jinx Proof stays in business so this gets made again.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Pours a cloudy, very dark golden ripe banana yellow color with some golden yellowish orange hues when held to a light source and a 1.5 finger frothy head with decent retention, slowly fading into a lasting ring. Slightly earthy/grassy hop aroma with a good bit of bready yeast, wheat and citrus character in the nose. Hints of peppery zest and lemon peel a well as some biscuit malt. Surprisingly hop forward for a pilsner although it is Three Floyds so I guess I shouldn’t be too shocked. This provides a nice dry earthy character that lasts throughout even though it is nicely balanced by a slightly malty backbone with lots of golden wheat, bready yeast, light crisp fruit, citrus peel and peppery spice. Very well balanced, light, crisp and refreshing. Perfect for the warmer months although there is two feet of snow on the ground right now. Nice dry grassy hop finish that gives it a crisp bite. Very good.

Bottle via trade thanks to dug on BA, unintentionally aged for awhile until one day when I found it in my "cellar" (which is a closet that’s usually about 70 degrees, so not the best for storage) and freaked the hell out. Quickly popped this bad boy into my fridge, then busted it out to pair with a dinner of scallops and pasta. Pours a hazy golden-straw color with a well-retained one finger white head and some good lacing. Aroma is pale malt, grain, Noble hops, and maybe even some wheat. Did they use some wheat in this? Flavor is somewhat sweet with bready pale malt, grain, wheat, and herbal and floral hops. Nothing that blows you away, but really enjoyable. Almost similar to something like Surly Hell if I had to make a comparison. Palate is smooth, fairly light, and crisp. The sweetness and a little bitterness lingers in your mouth on the finish. Drinkability is insanely high. Taking down a bomber of this is like taking candy from a baby.
