1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is moderately hoppy (grapefruit, herbs), trace malt (toasted grain), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic. Savvy brewers of swill have learned that they can appeal to pseudo beer geeks by upping the hops enough to cover up some of the glaring faults, and release it under a micro-ish brand name. And thus we have this little drain pour, whose hops at first mask the DMS stink in the aroma, but cannot help the foul and metallic aftertaste. Don’t be fooled. Shame on Full Sail for brewing this line of crap.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not a bad beer but nothing to write home about either. Pours a golden color. A little dark actually considering it’s supposed to be a blonde lager. Malty nose with some hops. Taste is yeasty with some hops. There’s another flavor or two in the background that I can’t put my finger on that really bring the overall taste down. Finishes weak.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Faint hop and malt aroma. Pale malt sweetness with a light hop finish. Vague flavor and thin mouthfeel. Not a very demanding beer, but I do prefer this to the private reserve.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light golden color with a white diminishing fizzy head. Pale malt and hint of hops. Light malt sweetness and a touch of bittering hops in the flavor. An american standard lager. Need I say more.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich golden colour with a white head. Grassy and flowery nose over decent pale malt. Pretty full-bodied for the style, good maltiness and a crisp hop finish.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden color with not much of a head. Malty aroma. Some hops, but very faint. Pretty decent taste. Kind of watery, but still pretty malty and smooth. Not too bad.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden color with little white fizzy head, light lacing. Aroma is very bad, dms and diactyl reach into my lungs and pull the ugly strings of my soul. Flavor is a little sweet with a touch of hops, not all horrible, but I still have a bad look on my face. Finishes astringent and bland, no body. I hate these kind of "beers".

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gold pour with a white head. Aromas of sweet malt and some hop characters. Flavor is mostly malt with a slight presence of wheat. Thin bodied and a watery palate, and a cleansing finish. Standard lager.
