3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 Pours pale yellow w/ a shallow spritzy froth leaving a white ring.
Aroma is Heineken, baugh ! Light nectar w/ ample residual effers.
Flavors are malty and skunky (non-offensive) w/ a crisp, perfectly bittered finish.
Indeed a session brew but not anything out of the ordinary.
If you like Heineken you’ll appreciate it, and it’s from the great U.S. of A.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is what BMC SHOULD be like in theory. Very nice aroma, very clean flavor and a moderate hoppiness that finishes dry and crisp. The body is easy to drink, but with some heft to it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear with a white tighly bound head. Aroma of bananas, note of floral, grass, hay with a slick mouth feel. Lightly malty and lightly bitter. Smells reminiscent of german lagers. An easily drinkable beer - a good session beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fairly common yellow color. Not much happening in the aroma for me. Smells like beer. Tastes like beer. What id has going for it is the nice combination of obviously actual BEER ingrediants (no rice, or sugar I would bet) combined to make an ’American Lager’ which actually tastes like beer. Kind of a homebrewed taste. The best part is the finish. It is long and round. This beer has a very appropriate name. Not really anything that remarkable.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. Pours yellow to amber with a small fading head. Very light malty aroma, almost insignificant. The light flavor is a bit of malt with a slightly dry and bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a fantastic lager. It is full-bodied (for a lager) refreshing, and just fun. Full Sail is a great brewery and this is a great offering. Great bottle too.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Incredible beer for the style. One could slam these all day and still feel good the next morning. I mean really, if you call your beer "Session" then it had better be a damn good one and this is. Slightly hopped aroma, but mostly just malts and grain. Appearance is a deep golden color, nice conditioning and good head. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and clean. Flavor is slightly hoppy but (again) mostly grains and malts. Simply outstanding for a lager. Cool little stubby bottle too. Before you know it, you’ve finished off 5 or 6 and you’re feeling good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours a bright, amber-tinted gold from its cute little stubby bottle, with a pleasant white head that retains well and leaves good lace. fairly malty nose makes me think "Vienna" - that touch of nuttiness is there, w/perhaps a touch of brown sugar. flavor follows the nose - an almost juicy malt front that dries up a little bit at the end, with some grainy flavors grafting on to the low IBUs in the finish. easy drinking little beer seems to be close to a Vienna (or Helles). seems like something to bring to your next bar-b-que.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2007 11oz. stubby bottle. Best Stubby design I’ve found for years.
Pours nice yellow with good bubbly fluffy head. Second Session consumed from the bottle.
Scent is very subdued, mild malt and grass smells. Taste is very clean and refreshing. A bit maltier than most lagers of its hue. Excellent thirst quencher on a hot summer day. Higher ABV than you would expect from its taste.
And...I got Scissors.
