FROTHINGSLOSH (7879) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2012
From the 12/2012 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a murky yellow-golden color with a medium sized foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy orange, bread and honey. The flavor was dryish and musty with some cardboard, orange, pepper and bread. Medium length orange and bread finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid. DCLawyer (2846) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2012

Live tasting, 750ML corked and caged into Duvel Tulip...
Appearance; pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color, nearly 3 fingers of thick, billowy straw colored head... Retention is ok, after a couple minutes it’s fallen to a spotty film. Lacing is good, with thick splotches of head sticking to the glass.
Smell; smells like an average macro pilsner to me... Notes of bread and lime sneak in.
Taste; bready and slightly sweet, with a crisp finish, notes of lingering honey.. Slight hints of hop bitterness and resin. I’m also getting notes of citrus...
Mouthfeel; quite a bit thicker than I anticipated, definitely medium to medium full bodied, slightly sticky but goes down smooth... Carbonation is good, although a little more would definitely help "lighten" the feel of this beer up in my opinion...
Overall; a good beer in a style I don’t drink all that often, the ABV is well hidden and it goes down smooth... I’d definitely drink this again, perhaps on a hot day behind the BBQ if I was looking to go a different route than an IPA...

Hazy golden color, with creamy head. The aroma is a bit herbal, honeyish. Good mouthfeel, smooth, round, sweetish, with honeyish and hay flavor, malt; correct bitterness. Pleasant.
Sweet, herbal, fruity aroma. Very sweet flavor -- too sweet. Some herbal, spicy hops. Gription79 (2891) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. I am not a fan of this style. Huge pilsner malt sweetness. The lager yeast character is noticeable. Not a bad beer. Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Pours a golden copper color witha two plus finger fo white fizzy foam. On the nose its a bit sweet with a honeyed grassy profile that mixes with a bit of fruity yeast. On the palate it is more of the same. A touch sticky and the yeasty fruit flavors far outweigh the saaz hops and the bready pilsen malts. Blahhh.

Bottle courtesy of Radek. Deep golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is semi-sweet and a little bit honeyed. Some light sticky malt and a touch of cooling minty honey malt flavour. A little bit of soft herbal malt flavour. Simple brew – probably has a bit of age on it, but it’s decent enough. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Poured into a pils glass. Bottled on 02/23/12.
4.5 A: Well hazed brown tinted medium orange color. Two fingers of frothy/pillowy off-white head. Retention is very good given the ABV and plenty of lacing is left.
4.0 S: The aroma is as big as the ABV. Grassy and hay with grassy hops. Grainy and biscuity. Potent neutral malt sweetness. Faint lemony fruitiness. Booze is hidden very well.
3.5 T: Grassy hops with hay. Peach and lemon fruits. Again grainy and biscuity. Nice hearty sweetness. A touch of booze.
4.5 M: Heavier medium to almost heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Not crisp like a normal pils, but rather viscous and velvety. Very nice here.
4.0 D: Everything other than the taste is done really well, so this is getting a better score than it deserves. But, in any case, this is a tasty beer and I’m happy to be drinking it.
