Can. Pours a light fizzy golden with a thin white head. The aroma is a strong sweet grain and corn. The taste is pretty simple; some sweet corn and a bunch of malt. Some honey perhaps and bit of stale bready flavors. Not horrible, just like a macro lager, but smoother and with better ingredients.

This really doesn’t taste at all like a pale ale to me but more like a German or Dutch lager. But at $7.99 for a 12-pack I really can’t find anything to complain about. It’s a light, slightly sweet brew with little or no skunkiness to report. I would have again for the price. P.S. Note to Full Sail: Let’s cut out the bullshit on the box about how painstaking your brewing process is and how little regard there is for time and cost according to your philosophy. Nobody’s buying this fluff. In fact now your’e borderline insulting my intelligence.

When first starting with beer, this became my favorite. Now, I cannot stomache it. The term ’skunky’ I’ve seen surely fits the smell. It makes you want to turn your head. Not much flavor here, but the extra carbonation hides that a bit. It’s a little hoppy, with the taste of corn. Not one I’d ever buy again.

12 oz bottle via Roth’s. Pours a clear amber with an average head. Nose is grainy and floral. Taste is grains, corn, and a little herbal hoppiness. Body is light. Carbonation very high which helps cover up the blandness.

One of the few H.W. brews I have enjoyed. O.K. for a barbeque. Micro & macro drinkers can both drink it...but neither will love it.

Bottle: Golden colored pour with medium sized head. Hoppy, veggie aroma with a little skunkiness. Malty, hoppy, crisp, little sweet finish.

On tap at Tom’s in St Johns, PDX--Poured a crisp light copper-straw body with a slim wispy white head. Decent carbonation; best served cold. Mildly creamy with a modest biting hops presence. Thin and built for heavy sessioning. Thanks, Full Sail Brewing Co.
