Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a slightly transparent yet has a hazy brown/amber coloring. Nice one finger frothy creamy white head.
The smell had sweet German malts delicately balanced into a decent smoky meaty quality.
The taste was sweet and slightly meaty and adds a decent breadiness as it warms, and has exactly the same aftertaste, but the finish is a bit drier.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium, good carbonation for the Altbier style and good for me as there’s a decent harshness that typically felt in altbiers, also there’s a decent sessionable quality to this as well.
Overall, whoah, Full Sail, where did this come from, as I think I just found my favorite altbier by an American brewer as I would definitely love to come back to this. llcooldave (1217) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Reddish amber in color. nice off white head with a hint of caramel. Toasty malt lager-ish aroma. Crisp and dry with a bit of dark toasted bread note mixed in. Overall, not a bad find for $4.99 per 22oz. I’ll buy this again... Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - APR 15, 2012
Clear dark amber/brown. Aroma of biscuity malt, some nut. Taste is nice and toasty, nothing spectacular, but solid. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2012

apparently I got this an hour off the bottling Line. Super mellow, slick and puffy. Rye character some chocolate. Excellent balance and drinkability.

Clear reddish amber with a small, sudsy beige head. Moderate lacing. Aroma mild, but really bready, with some caramel and grassy hops. Nicely flavored, well balanced; malty but not sweet or even fruity, with a nice bitter finish. Medium bodied, a little dry, very easy drinking. douglas88 (9176) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bomber from the Utah State Store on 3300 South. Pours a dark copper color with a medium white head. A sweet Munich nose with light fruit. The flavor is nice and clean: caramel, sweet malts, light bitter hops, light tropical fruit struggling to get through. Very flavorful and smooth. Nice.

From bottle. Mild musty grain, light sweetness with a bit of hop tang. Medium coppery amber clear with rocky-foamy off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts medium sweet with musty grain notes, biscuit, and some caramel. Nutty finish with nice hop bitterness. Pretty plain but balanced and well done. Sweet nutty after.

Bottle share....poured a light/medium color, small amount of beige head. Has a slightly bread-y and caramely aroma. The taste starts slightly sweet and becomes progressively more hoppy. A little bitter in the finish and aftertaste. The mouthfeel is a little thin. Overall, not bad but definitely not my favorite from Full Sail. hayduke (5203) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours dark and clear amber. Off white head. Good lacing. Nose is roasted malts, some fruit, and floral and grassy hops. Body is medium and mouth feel is average. The flavor is ripe fruit, some floral hops, light bitterness, and some sour astringency. As it warms it smooths out and ends up tasting of nuts and lightly bitter. The beer went down easy and the 22-oz was gone before I knew it. Nice.
