hockeybeerguy (1958) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Enjoy by date of " 09/03/14" stamped in white along the left side. This was poured into a pilsener glass. There was a two and a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light somewhat foamy lacing clinging to the glass. The smell has a large amount of roasted caramel flavors presenting themselves in front of a toffee to nutty sort of flavoring. Light grassy/earthy bitter hops lightly dosed. The taste was mainly sweet and malty bringing back the nuttiness and the roasty caramel flavors. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The aftertaste was semi - dry with a long drying finish. Overall, LTD series by Full Sail, solid Vienna Lager and now my interest is piqued in more of this series. Sure hope, this is just a precursor of what’s yet to come...Full Sail send more LTD series beers.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2014
2011 backlog. Pours clear dark amber with a 2 finger off white head. The nose is caramel, grain and fruity esters. The taste is the same for the most part with some faint roast in the finish. Medium bodied. Boring. 2.7

maxwelldeux (3551) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very clear darker amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is slightly sweet and nutty, with just a bit of toast to it. Taste is much dryer than I expected, though there is a hint of sweetness on the back end. Slight bits of toast and nuts throughout.

crazyvin (1933) - New York, USA - JUN 21, 2014
A copper body with a fast fading white head. Aroma had mostly sweet caramel malts upfront. Some sense of toast malts and a nutty presence. Flavor was mostly sweet malts, there was a bit of spice from the hops. Thin mouth feel. Not a bad beer, but overall it was lacking in both flavor and aroma.

Bottle. A: Caramel color, thin creme head. N: Malt, smoke, toffee, caramel, some pineapple, and earth. T: Malty sweet, smoky, and a touch bitter. M: Light body, a little resin. O: a very nice beer. Good clean flavor. Gotta love a lager.

Luvystypotables (618) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Aroma of sour dough and malt, copper coloured not much of a head taste of dough and malt with a creamy feel an a sour dough palate.

TXBadger (1345) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Pours a nice red color with white head. Caramel malt, bread, biscuit, and some roasted character on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more caramel maltiness.

Aurelius (4121) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Standard US longneck, perfunctory label. Packaging appearance offset by the bright, clear, bronze beer. Filmy ivory head with frogs’ eggs bubbles. Nice, dry nutty malt aroma. Toast, cereal, nutty malt flavor with light astringency and a little grass. Medium body, toasty-bitter finish. Not a complicated beer, but a refreshing one. Trader Joe’s, Tallahassee.

Weezel (189) - Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Fruity hops, deep amber malts, crisp finish. This is a really good interpretation of the styles. The lager balances out the taste of the traditional amber ale.

hopwine (299) - Bend, Oregon, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Orange amber pour, white head that dissipates to nothing. Simple, bready sweet malt nose. Flavor is same sweet bready malts with faint hop presence. Slightly stale tasting. Best by date is obscured (partially stamped) so I’m assuming this is old... Hey full sail, if you’re going to go through the trouble of using a best by stamp maybe make it at all legible.
