3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
German Lager yeast flavor and aroma. Some of the token Full Sail caramel flavor; not a lot. Subtle fruity flavor in the background... A little too much on the sweet side--but still a good beer.

11oz bottle. Pours a reddish-amber color with minimal white head. Slight aroma of caramel malt. Sweet flavor followed with a spicy hoppy finish. Somewhat different, but nothing overly exciting here.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
elf bottle. pours a clear copper, minimal head. nose is sweet cookie malt. mouth is crisp malty tinged with a little piney-hop bitter, no resins. overall nothing over-the-top but elevated abv (6.2%) and easy drinkability, should undoubtedly get all the elves drunk.

Bottle: Light amber pour with a medium soapy looking head.
aroma is tasted malt, light cardboard, and fruity/herbal tang.
Fruity flavour is a lot more forward than expected. Not unpleasant. Toasted malt under that.
Bit minerally in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Total Wine, Fairfax 11oz: Pours amber with long-lasting head. Aroma is caramel malt and lager smell. Taste is slightly sweet. Light hoppiness in the background. Tastes like a German beer pretty much (although the German beers that it tastes like are rated much lower than this and for no discernible reason it seems).

Bottle. Clear amber pour with a big foamy head. Smells like a cheaper lager with some caramel and cardboard. Taste is about the same. Not a fan of this.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Probably the most unimpressive offering out of Full Sail’s lineup. Not a great aroma. Taste is...not very good. Somewhat unpleasant. I wouldn’t pick this as a cheap beer at a bar, rather skip to BMC or liquor.
