Draft at Bavarian Lodge. Slight haze in a golden lager body, the standard half-finger of foam. Crispy, light beer nose is a little hard for me to find with my wintertime sniffles. But the taste has straightforward, old-fashioned German type beer. Just a step higher in bitterness than the macros. Hops give us dry spiciness, aided by the bright effervescence. Only the merest hint of malt sweetness in a beer tending toward the malty side.
Fairly basic beer. Maybe if had it within days of being bottled.Thanks for sharing, Brian. Not much hop flavour. Still I appreciate a good lager. islay (2645) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2017
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 it’s 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, it’s 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. djd07 (14366) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2016
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. ehaak26 (490) - - OCT 15, 2016

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

on tap @ Barleycorn’s / 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. DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2015

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.

On tap at Three Floyd?s with koleminer20. Aroma is sweet malt, earthy hops, corn, different. Appearance is straw yellow, white head. Taste is sweet malt, lots of it, with earthy hops, pretty good. Mouthfeel it?s crisp, medium body and crisp carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable pils. MrBunn (2807) - 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 I’m not sure whether that is suggestion from the feel or whether it is really there. Odd for the style but decent.
