3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

not a complex beer but i can drink the shit out of this. distributes in oklahoma, drank a lot while there, great price point. my fondness may be due to how well this goes down in hot temps and how hot it was there then. worth a try, especially when it is 90 out.

I thought I was looking for something pale, but I tried this instead. What a nice surprise. Firm malt body. Grassy hop flavoring, mellowed by persistent carbonation. Copper color matches the caramel aroma. I cannot go back in history, but I now have a rival to Brooklynís interpretation of the Vienna style.
