This is a great sessionable lager. Very crisp in taste and very well carbonated. Nice light mouth feel.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a decent looking hazy golden color with a slim white film of a head. There wasn’t any lacing.
The smell I guess had some grainy sweet cereal malts if that.
The taste was mainly semi - sweet.
On the palate, this sat very light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation finishes fairly smooth with a light harshness.
Overall, actually not a bad premium lager. Decent price and probably would be a fairly decent pizza beer.

I have to make up 75 characters to describe an overpriced budweiser, so here- smelled like nothing, tasted like a cross beteen bud and lite miller. Mouth feel, nonexistent, and tiny baby bottle? Get real. This stuff is a joke.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a brilliant gold with very thin off white head. Slightly sweet nose with corn and a hint if sulphur. Flavor has a nice light malty sweatiness, and nice balance I no real hoppiness. Very clean. Good beer.

Decent enough lager, nothing special. Obvious the bottle is cool and feels great in hand. Flavors and aromas are pretty much what you expect for a "premium" lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear gold with a creamy white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a combination of grains cookie and a bit of grassy hops. Flavor has smooth sweet grains with some grass bite coming through in the finish.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bright and clear yellow color. Corny and grainy aroma. Corn and grainy flavor as well. Sips clean, no off flavors. Truly a premium pale lager. Carbonation bite is relatively high, body is medium full. Palate is slightly drying, an finish is bitter with low hop and malt flavors throughout. Going to make it into a chelada now.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wait...a dirty old lager from the U.S. of A. that is actually...*gulp*...enjoyable? Oh I see now, it’s from a Craft Brewer in Oregon, that explains everything. In cute lil’ stubby bottles too! So you can drink loads and still feel like you’ve got your life on track. It’s a hazy light amber with a frothy head that checks out fairly early on. I feel like this is what Lagers were meant to be, satisfyingly malty with balanced hop bitterness, lightly sweet, somewhat dry and totally refreshing. There is actually caramel, nuts, bread, citrus and floral flavours here. Not just drinkable, but enjoyable. Good work Hood River.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Clear golden color with a thin white head. Poor retention, unfortunately. Very light lacing.
N: Bready, malty nose. A foreshadowing of hops - pine and grapefruit. Floral and grassy, a bit like being in the middle of a fresh cut field.
T: Sweet malt with a slight bitterness.
M: Very crisp, light body.
O: A beer Full Sail sells by the palate, and for good reason. The very definition of post-lawnmower/cookout beer. Balanced and, well, sessionable. I do not feel this should be in the 31st percentile; it’s very clean.
