Fatehunter (1537) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Poured a half finger of head on a clear, medium straw colored body. It has a great aroma of grain with a bit of barnyard in the background. The taste is wonderful. Full of grains with a nice malt background for a lager. Well balanced. It is crisp with moderate carbonation. A pretty good lager.

This rating is for the style. Clear amber and nice maltiness with a subtle kiss of spicy hops. Lager lovers loves this. Glad to see this on shelves again... I love the LTD beers.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 8, 2013
A - Pours a clear amber/brown with a 1.5 finger off-white head the forms a solid ceiling. Leaves behind average lacing. S - Toasted bread, woody yeast, faint earthy/floral hops, hint of alcohol. T - Clean grain, sweet/toasty caramel malt, some mild raspberry around the edges. Hops come out toward the end and add a little spicy bitterness and stick on the tongue on the aftertaste. M - Medium firm body, moderate carbonation. Pretty flavorful Red Lager. This holds itís own in the style. Good malt presence. This is a keeper. Serving type: bottle 05-02-2011

nealblind (983) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - APR 21, 2013
Lovely dark amber color. Smells of tart straw. Tastes first of straight up malt then moves into rich spiced caramel bread with a tail of hops. Light effervescence and medium mouthfeel. Very sessionable and similar to full sailís session fest. Could hold up to even higher alcohol content. Iím thinking 7% or so.

Bottle at Columbia event. Pours a medium brown/amber color. Not much in the aroma, medium body, very sweet, finish really opens up, again, drinkable. Excellent.

May 16th, 2012 - A good amber is an amber that shines in a dull, brown and monotonous crowd. The amber is the safe style and the go-to 6-pack that lets a party hosted appeal just a little bit to all palates, rather than exceeding expectations for just a few drinkers. But Full Sailís LTD Series Lager Recipe Number 5 is a cut above the mundane ambers that crowd the refrigerated section of my local grocery stores. Itís an experimental recipe - whatever tinkering they conducted yielded a wonderful new take on the traditional amber; itís a beer that engages the palate, rather than just slaking some vague thirst for beer. Dark chocolate brown in color, the depth and murkiness suggests that this brew might be thick with something - flavor, palate, gravity, itís as yet unknown. Exploring the aroma, I find brown sugar and a heavy malta aroma, with the scent of fresh grass and sod. A dribble of honey appears in the aroma too, suggesting this is going to be a very sweet beer on the tongue. My suspicious are confirmed on the first sip. Lots of that rich maltiness comes to play on the palate, complemented by a mound of brown sugar, a breakfast oatmeal sweetness, a ribbon of caramel, and some glazed peaches and apricots., I overuse this word, but it fits so well here: toothsome. This is a sweet, delicious deep beer that has considerably improved the reputation and lot of ambers everywhere.

Clear amber with brown overtones and a creamy off white head. Hardly any distinct aroma - perhaps a little graininess. Flavor is nutty with a little marzipan and caramel. Hopped just enough to keep the finish relatively dry. Nice beer but not great.
