COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The newly designed bottle labels describe LTD Bottling 03, as crisp, new pilsner-style lager that is pale golden in color, features a spicy floral hop aroma, a malty medium body, and a smooth thirst-quenching finish. LTD 03 registers "Pale" on the "Malt-O-Meter" that is featured on the six packs. Beer aficionados, or the aspiring ones, will enjoy the bottom of the six-pack that features an easy-to-read chart of "Today’s Recipe," including Sterling hops, 2 row pale malt, plato (14 degrees), I.B.U. (35), alcohol by volume (5.6) and any special ingredients.

Ernest (6483) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 27, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2013 Bottle (2013 version). Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/cracker), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with a light note of soap. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Wow, they actually fixed this recipe. The ’09 batch was dirty and too sweet. This is cleaner in the nose and crisper in the finish. Who says breweries don’t make improvements?

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear dark gold with a thick and lacy white head. Mostly bread in the aroma. Medium body and full carbonation. Lightly sweet taste of honey on bread, with a crisp and earthy hop finish.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUL 25, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2011 Pours yellow gold with a tall lasting creamy head that slowly recedes leaving behind it’s fluffy remnants. Smells fresh and brisk. Medium full nectar with excellent carbonation. Rich and full on the palate with a dense malty backbone. Superb use of hops bittering this up beautifully. The finish lingers. Excellent session brew.

RSRIZZO (1872) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Color is a bright deep gold with low carbonation and thin head. Aroma is a tart scent of grain and corn. Taste is crisp and bitter. Starting with a lighter body it goes down crisp. Finish jumps out bitter with an odd sour grain taste. After taste is clean as the bitterness fads into a faint sweetness. Overall its not bad just not a brew nor style I like much.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Pours a straw-golden hue with thin white head that dissipates, brilliant clarity. Nose is subtle, mostly pilsner malts, bread, and light floral/grass. Flavor is sweeter than most pilsners, hints of honey and sweetbreads, medium hop bitterness and flavor. Light-medium body is thicker than most pilsners as is the thick chewy texture, moderate carbonation. An interesting American Pilsner with body, heft, and flavor that would make the macrobrews shudder, but still in the high average range of beers, very drinkable and refreshing.

CheersMate (1312) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2009
The limited edition series keeps getting better and better i.e. it keeps getting higher ratings. A pilsner? Oh yeah! A nice dark gold color. Looks pretty good. Nice crisp sweet honey aroma. Very nice aroma for this beer. The awesome aroma doesn’t continue on with the flavor. Slight bitter flavor. Slight sweet honey flavor. Not a very complex flavor. A not so creamy beer. Nothing horrible about the palate, but it is not amazing. Overall, some decent hops and honey flavors, but nothign extraordinarily complex. Pretty good brew.

riversideAK (5692) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Nice aroma of malt, bread, a touch of honey with a good hop presence as well. Pours light golden with a fantastic fizzy head. The flavor is bready and sweet, followed by some grassy peppery hops and a good solid clean bitterness in the finish. Nice carbonation, and wonderful finish.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 14, 2009
The label says this is a pilsener and it sure fits the style. Dark yellow but not orange. fizzy, short head. Smells like malt and honey. The flavor is a crisp lager, very easy to drink, good stuff. I also like the fact that Full Sail has very reasonable pricing, this was $7 for a sixer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-03-2009 21:09:20

bvc (1174) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2009
12oz bottle that I picked up today at Malt and Vine. Pours a slightly darker clear golden with a very thin head that dissipates rather quickly. Nose is light grassy pils smelling with some bready sweetness in there. Tight carbonation, refreshing and crisp pils flavor. A touch sweet, but all in all very drinkable. Ideally for me, this would be year around, about $6 a 6pack and canned.

3fourths (8338) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 10, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2011 Bottle. Crisp, refreshing cracker pils malt, low to medium hop presence in the nose, suitable for northern German pils. Silky, oily, medium/light body, has a lightness to the texture. Pils malt (crackers), slightly sweet bread. Unassuming and uncomplicated, simple, refreshing and delicious. damn good stuff in mid-late 2011 still.
