UPDATED: AUG 14, 2005 I canít bring myself to pour this beer into a glass because itís so much more fun to drink it out of the quirky bottle. This is a quality product - well flavored and balanced, smooth, pleasant aroma and did I mention the cool bottle?

Grainy aroma. Light golden body with good white foamy head. Good beer flavor balce of malts and hops. No strong bitterness in this beer. Decent swill you could eat a pretzel with cheese on it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small white head that settles quickly, sparse bits of stringy lace left behind. Pale, straw color, good clarity. Nose is lightly malty, no discernable corny aromas, lightly grassy hops. Body is light, crisp. Medium dry maltiness, lighlty spicey with faint citrus notes. Dry finish. Cute little quaff. Thanks to zathrus13 for the trade!

Bottle. A golden color with a white head. Sweet corn and malty aroma with a smooth velvet palate. At first I was impressed, but the sweetness soon became annoying.

Bottled. Pours a clear golden color. Aroma is sweet and somewhat grainy. Sweet malty flavor. A little bit of graininess. Grainy bitter finish. More flavor than macro swill.

Are you kidding me? Itís about time an American Craft Brewer got the pilsner right! This is what Lagers were meant to be before the big guys started using corn and rice, and the imports started advertising to the cattle. Nice aroma, golden appearance, phenomenal flavor, thicker than domestics, but by no means a heavy craft. When you are hot and thirsty and not in need of big craft beer, this is just the ticket. The packaging is classic and I love the Ro Sham Bo bottle caps. A fun beer perfect for the BBQ thirst quenching season. Import style pilsner made by an American Brewery. They definiteley got this one right!!!

This beer tastes almost exactly like what you would expect from the packaging. Excellent hot weather summer beer, with just the right amount of body for its style. Crisp, refreshing, well-hopped, with a nice, thirst-quenching bitterness on the finish. Iím not usually a fan of Full Sailís beers but this one bucks the trend.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had a twelver of this at a bbq tonight. Almost embarassed to say I enjoyed it. A straight up lager that is not cloyingly sweet and can be pulled out of a steel tub filled with ice. Perfect for a 95+ degree day. Also gotta love the rock, paper, scissors on the bottle caps.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2006 Pours a brilliantly clear yellow-gold color and is topped by a frothy off white head. The aroma is lightly spicy with notes of lemon, herbs, and a bit of sweet grain. The taste is light and spritzy with a spicy hop note to it and a subtle bitterness in the finish. This beer is nice and light, it does have a bit more flavor than your standard macro (actually quite a bit more), but it still is not packed with flavor. It is certainly quite quaffable, and has a certain appeal to it, especially on a hot summer afternoon.

This beer was designed as a microbrew for the macrobrew audience. With that type of oxymoron as the end goal, it is difficult to know what to expect. The result, Session is pretty good. Not as sickly sweet as the average macro, and not as granola as a micro.
