12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark brownish-red with a one finger tan head that fades rather quickly leaving very little in the way of lacing. Aroma of toffee and caramel along with noble hops. There is also some toast and nuttiness. Flavor has caramel and nuts up front nicely complimented by spicy hops. Toffee and caramel in the background along with a little bit of toast. Moderate bitterness with a little bit of a creamy mouthfeel. Clean finish with just the smallest amount of stickyness. Overall, a tasty lager but not one that really stands out from the pack. Really reminded me of SA Boston Lager. I would pick it up again if I saw it.

Pours a dark amber-orange color with a small head that lingers a bit. Malty aroma of bread, caramel, and yeast. Taste is rich caramel malt, thick bread, and light toast. Incredibly thick body and chewy mouthfeel for an amber lager, wow. Best vienna I’ve had. It’s more like bock really. Well made lager.

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 sail’s session fest. Could hold up to even higher alcohol content. I’m thinking 7% or so.

The LTDs are coming faster now! 12 oz from a 6-pack . Winco store S.Salem. $5.88 Handsome deep amber beer with a largish light tan head. Very malty aromas..toasted oat cereal comes to mind..a little nuttiness also. Taste is semi sweet toffee,again a dose of nutiness, Sweet honey finish..and perhaps the fainest hint of hop in the end. Nice enough on the tongue..good feel to it. Overall a nice tasty lager

Bottle. Poured honey red with medium lasting white head. Aroma is biscuit and honey. Medium balanced flavour. Lekker hop finish, but subdued.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2011
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.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 12, 2011
12 oz bottle from 16 Tons. Surprisingly dark amber pour with a light bit of white head. Smells of grains, some bread, toffee, maybe a little nuttiness. Taste is sweet toffee, a little nutty, some bread and maybe light caramel. Probably my favorite of the LTD series so far, quite a surprisingly solid brew.

troyc (2432) - Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2011
[Bottle] Pours an orange color with a bit of haze to it. Large and lasting cap of foamy head. Aroma of caramel malts, sticky toffee and hints of smoke. Sweet rolls, mild spice, grassy hops and a light amount of smoke in the taste. Full in body and average carbonation levels. Toasted malty finish. I did enjoy this one quite a bit. I’d but this again.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Light toasty malty aroma. The flavor is clean and toasty with enough bitterness to balance. Good stuff.

Light brown color. Mild aroma of a lager with grain. Flavor has more grain, lightly sweet and immediately recognizable as a Vienna. A very drinkable, and well made lager. These Full Sail lagers are awesome.
