COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Quite a delicious lightly citrusy ipa with a good nose on it and a clean body. Easy to drink in quantity.

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. I’ve never seen this beer before and it wasn’t here two weeks ago so I’m gonna assume it’s 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. It’s soft and doughy, clean and crisp with delightful citrus and pine notes cutting through. The palate is medium with a good level of carbonation. I’m 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 I’ve 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.

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.

lb4lb (2495) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Pours a medium golden color with a short-lived white head. Smell is clean malt and very faint hops. Taste is crisp, malty and more hopped than in the smell. Has a pretty nice amount of hops to it that give it a refreshing, bright and almost minty finish. Medium body crisp carbonation easy drinking. Very enjoyable.

maxwelldeux (3500) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear copper color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is like an IPL with a fair amount of grassy and floral notes to it and only a small bit of corn sweetness. Taste is slightly bitter and pretty easy on the palate, making this a super refreshing drink.

llcooldave (1072) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Clean citrus aroma. Crystal clear gold in the glass. Crisp clean citrus hops flavor. It kinda wants to be an IPA, but falls a bit short. Overall, a very decent beer... this is my second bottle purchased.
