3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle. Pours a clear golden brown color with average sized off white head. Aroma of biscuit, hay. Medium bodied, yet still very full feeling, smooth, creamy palate, perfect session lager feel. Flavor has a distinct caramel presence, but it is very nicely done, not artificial or cloying, just tastes good. Also plenty of toast, hay, and a crisp bite thanks to the hops, which impart a very subtle bitterness on the finish. Simply a great lager, would be a go to beer for me.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 Brooklyn’s interpretation of the Vienna style.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Earthy, grass aroma with light notes of caramel. Pours caramel colored with a thin white head and no lacing. Starts with earthy and grassy malt flavors with a light body. Finishes smooth with sweet caramel lingering on the palate after. All right, but nothing to make it standout.

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 it’s 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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
