3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Clear, golden body capped by a smallish, white head.
Smell: Mild malt scent pumped up with a hop character giving off spicy notes of dried citrus peel.
Taste: Sweetish, candyish pale maltiness and a quick, clean taste of grain. Spicy, lightly citrusy hops with a medium amount of bitterness. Touch of yellow apple fruitiness on the finish.
Mouthfeel: The body has just enough heft to it to get it beyond light-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A fine, tasty session-minded lager. Enjoyed at the Three Floyds brewpub, it’s nice to jumpstart the day before moving onto the Alpha Kong, Blackheart, etc.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Called a Franconian Pilsener on the pub’s menu, this seems a bit too sweet without enough balancing bitterness. The pour is a slighly hazy, deep golden body with a big fluffy head and plenty of thick lacing. It’s got a bready aroma, sugary sweet, with just a touch of grassy bitterness. The hops build up during the drinking but never get to a point where they counter the malty sweetness effectively. Not bad, but not something I’ll be repeating.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at tap at Three Floyds and served in a pint glass. This pilsener poured a slightly hazy golden with a chunky off-white head that slightly lasted. A small amount of lacing was left behind. The aroma of the beer was made up of biscuit, fresh mown grass, and some light citrus. The flavor was similar with a crisp, bitter finish. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty clean and highly sessionable. A very well done pilsener.

pours cloudy amber, fluffy head with a bit of lacing. the aroma is mild and airy, which might say more about my olfactory powers than the brew. flavor is spicy and bready with a slight bitterness in the finish. a good entry in the fff stable.
