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

12 oz. bottle, consumed on 1-10-17. Pours a bright, clear gold to bronze with good effervescence and a moderate amount of cream-colored head. Good, long-lasting lacing. Looks good. Hoppy aroma pops out immediately upon opening. Mixed aroma of American and noble continental European hops. Really nice hops pungency in aroma. Good, hoppy lager flavor. Champagne from the yeast and bitterness from the hops. Really tasty and likable. My only criticism of the flavor is that its a bit simplistic. Very nice, bitter, almost dirt-like finish and aftertaste. In this world of dumbed down New England IPAs (which have neutered the bitterness of their hops in favor of citric and tropical aromatics and juicy flavor) dominating on Untappd and at the other site, its nice to see an American craft beer embrace the bitterness of its hops. Light to medium body. Soft and smooth in the palate. Really likable palate effects. I know that Three Floyds has long been one of the best craft breweries in the country, but nonetheless this comes as a pleasant surprise in terms of just how good it is. Quite good across the board; I easily could have given this a 4 or even a 4.1 if I were in a slightly more generous mood. Underrated here.

Tap at GABF. Pours a cloudy yellow with medium white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is grass, straw, lemon zest. Medium body, grass, pine, light bitter finish, good.

Normally not a lager guy - but this is pretty tasty - especially on a hot humid day.

rondphoto (4229) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 10, 2015
on tap @ Barleycorns / Lakeside Park KY --- Hazy light amber color, white head, sheets of lace. Taste is semi-sweet malt that adds a spike of hops just before the finish, allowing malt to reappear as it drifts to the end. As more of the pint is consumed, everything smooths out to the point that all elements blend with each other very well.

On draft at Three Floyds after the Bourbon County debacle in Chicago. The pour is a crystal clear piss yellow color with a nice off white head and some spectacular lace as it falls down. The aroma has a surprisingly strong hint of lemon zest in it. There is a light pilsener going on, but it remains pretty zesty and lightly citrusy through the back end. The flavor is definitely that of a pilsener. Light and metallic with strong hints of corn and a light lemon zest. Basic and plain. The mouth feel is thin and light with minimal carbonation and a lingeringly strong and metallic finish. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrBunn (2767) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle. Pour is a hazy light gold with a sense head and aromas of grain dust, honey and light lemon notes. Flavor is kind of sweet and holds a decent lemon edge on the finish. Mouthfeel is kind of creamy and at times it seems to have a creamy flavor, but Im not sure whether that is suggestion from the feel or whether it is really there. Odd for the style but decent.

Nice crisp and grassy pilsner. Glad to see three floyds can hold off on the hops every once and a while.
