12oz bottle 7/25/12 Tulip¨Pours a clear medium amber witha small off white head. Aroma of roasted malt and cardboard. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is bot too shabby. Nice job.

Bottle: beautiful dark amber color, with a small off white head. Sweet, malty aromas help the well rounded flavor. It’s got a great body and finishes nice and clean.

On tap at Full Sail Hood River. Colour... Truly amber with a slight garnet hue and no head. Nose... Butterscotch candies and Malt-o-Meal with brown sugar. Palate... Light CO2, followed by a nearly candy like malt character and slight spent grain flavour that also has a bit of a tang to it. Finish is lightly sweet.

Definitely pours darker than the image shown on ratebeer however it is only by a little. Pours light-amber bordering on dark golden with amber highlights, decent white head, and clear as a filter. Head wafts of lager-like esters, sweet malt and slightly floral. Tastes right on for an amber lager, malty sweet but not heavy bodied. A decent amount of smooth bittering rounds out the palate. Hops are definitely of the noble variety with no ctirus or distinctly american hop characteristics present. Medium-light bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a malty vienna lager that has more malt sweetness and a touch more bitterness than most amber lagers that aren’t Oktoberfest style.

Out of the bottle. Pours a brilliant caramel color with a white head. Smell is mild and malty. Taste is smooth and sweet. The sweetness lingers and provides a full mouth feel. Very good.

12 ounce bottle. Pours amber with a nice biege head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is malt, caramel, a bit of citrus, and a bit of hops. Easy to drink.

Not sure what the deal with Full Sail is. They are committed to saving money on hops and using lager yeast. Mine is much darker than the glamor shot in the description (and crap head). A lot of malt in this, poorly fermented. Much more of a beer than expected, but not a good beverage.

Thanks to Cavie for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the grain and grass, with not too much else going on. The flavor is similar. The toffee and grain notes really stand out, with some grass from the hops thrown in. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Interesting beer...aromatic, full bodied and hoppy, yet it looks like an amber. A note of caramel, but hoppy. I think I prefered the LTD. 04, but this is a good quaff.

Biscuity aroma. Lemony citrus initial taste with a bready malt backbone. Nothing offensive, simple but bold flavor. Lingers on the palate.
