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.

August 15th, 2011 - My reviews of summer beers that are light, clear and crisp always do a great injustice to the style. An old Czech man who wiles away his times at breweries in bars in the country of his birth could probably tell you about the thousand different factors that make a good pilsner, but my training is grounded in ales. So, I try to supplement my descriptions with some image of back breaking labor or unpleasant sweating. But this isn’t fair just because I can’t pick out the differences between one, light, thirst quenching and well balanced beer from another. So, I’ll just be succinct and say that the Full Sail LTD Limited Edition Lager Recipe No. 3 is a great, light, quenching and well balanced beer. With its clear, golden color and a fuzzy, cotton head it looks the part, and smells the part too, with a clear mineral aroma and the light scent of malt, though it’s not pilsner malt per se. The flavor is delicate and mild, like a pale lager, but with more depth. The body is light and quenching with just enough carbonation to keep it interesting, and enough sugar to make this taste like an in-between meal treat. One finds clarity in the flavor mild acidity, and a general flavor profile that lends this to lawn mowing and lawn watching.

Westmeister (1831) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Bottle. Poured orange/yellow with a big white head. Aroma is a little citrus, bread, and some minor spiciness. Taste is very spicy hops, touch citrusy and more grain/bread. Perhaps a bit past its prime, but ok nonetheless.

maxwelldeux (3806) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a thin head. Smell is faint, but I can get just a hint of the floral hops they mention. Very smooth and crisp. Taste is only slightly malty, and allows very subtle flavors to play in this beer.

jcos (1592) - Maryland, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle on November 7, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a clear gold.
Aroma: Aroma of bready malt. No hop aroma.
Taste: Light bitterness, bready malt, maybe biscuit flavor.
Palate:Light body, nice amount of carbonation.

Summary: A solid pilsner but not amazing. My pour doesn’t match the picture, so unsure why.

That1Guy (1970) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2012
12 oz bottle pours clear golden with a fluffy, white head. Aaaand it’s oxidized. Aroma and flavor of cereal grain, light hops, and dominated by cardboard. Bummer.

blipp (6358) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Clean grainy base, with lighter flowery notes. Standard middle-of-the-road craft pils.

LeftCoastRider (110) - , Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours clear gold with white head. Strong aroma of banana, and surprising taste of toasted malts - highly unusual in a pilsner. Pretty good.

Veldy (65) - Coon Rapids, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Tasty! This is what I hoped for when I opened the bottle. Crisp indeed. Good choice of hops balanced nicely by a slight malt body...reasonably dry. A good brew.

Possibly the worst "COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION" ever. Have come to be disappointed (yet tempted enough by the $1.00 price at Trader Joes) by Full Sail. Odd soapy head ( from me pouring from a height to get a head). Amazing aroma-less. All better than expected from there out. Solid(ish) malt. Palate that isn’t horrible. Overall isn’t crap. A Full Sail victory. I hope that one day they make an amazing beer and all my talking crap about them is wrong. I want to love these guys, for some reason!

12oz screwtop bottle. Pours a light golden yellow with a white head. Nothing special here. Looks, tastes and smells like a typical macro though slightly more drinkable. I guess it’s OK for the style but I was expecting more. Oh well.
