Golden straw, excellent clarity, good head retention and lace. Nose is doughy and typical cascade pine/grapefruit. Flavor is same plus a touch of lager yeast minerality. Really nice effort from full sail

Sample pour of crisp golden straw with clean white head... Nose is citrus and a little floral. Very clean, with light to medium malt note. Flavor is clean also, mostly light citrus and moderate malt backing, nothing too bitter. Clean, and easy drinking summer beer. I dig it.

Bomber from Mile High. For years I have been asking for lagers with American hops. Full Sail has delivered and I like their reputation for pretty decent lagers. This bottle beckoned to me from the shelf in the cooler, but no date stamp. Iíve never seen this beer before and it wasnít here two weeks ago so Iím gonna assume itís fresh. Glad I picked it up. The pours is a crystalline gold with a frothy white head and good looking lacing. The aroma lets me know this is gonna be great. Itís soft and doughy, clean and crisp with delightful citrus and pine notes cutting through. The palate is medium with a good level of carbonation. Iím surprised to see this is 6% abv, it comes across as a little lower than that. Great hop bite in the flavor with clean citrus and pine again. A little floral and herb aspects come through. The malts are clean, a little crackery and pleasantly woody. What a great pilsner. This is in the discussion for best yellow lager Iíve ever consumed. Too bad for Full Sail Prima Pils exists. Nevertheless, I could drink tons of this. Probably will attempt that feat considering the $3.49 bomber pricetag.

PorterPounder (5470) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Atlanta, Ga. - Total Wine - Perimeter - 22 oz bomber. Sparkling medium gold pour, nice pillowy snow white head with plenty of sticky lacing. Nice fresh hoppy aroma with hints of honey and light spruce. Solid Pilsener flavor with some honey sweetness, a touch of light citrus bitterness, some cake mix sweetness, a touch of saffron spiciness. Nice crisp mouthfeel. Pretty solid.
