Bottle form the Utah Stat Store. Pours a dark amber color with a small white head. The aroma is mostly lots of toasted malts, some light fruits. A sweet nutty flavor, lots of malts, toasted flavors, some berries also. Very smooth and full flavored. Ibrew2or3 (8607) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2008
Courtesy of Degarth. Pours clear deep copper nearing amber with thin tan head. Mild aroma with sweet malts and roasted malts getting together for a semi sweet malty nose. Also I seem to be smelling some pale to grainy to biscuit malts. The body is a bit thin with sweet malts, caramel, mild dark fruity esters and a base of molasses in the background. Loved the aroma albeit it was too light. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2007
12-oz. Pours a deep ruby-tinged brown. Thin white head that falls quickly to a ring of foam. Hollow nose, a little bit of bread there, maybe a whisper of caramel, but maybe not. This beer would clearly be a lot more comfortable if you didnít notice it had stopped by. Maybe itís going to ask you for money later. Very mild attack; thin body, light carb, very little flavor--just some weak caramel malt and then some bready yeasty aftertaste (thatís right, aftertaste, not finish). These guys let the sales success of their amber get in the way of too many of their specials--they mild everything down until thereís nothing left.

Sampled from a 12 oz bottle. Overall I was more impressed with this beer than I was first expecting. Pours a amber color, small mostly white head. Aroma is a bit grassy, with touches of grains. A very clean beer, without any offensive touches to it. Not bad.

Pours with a small, off-white head covering a clear, lightish brown body. Suprisingly nice aroma of fruit, spices, maybe some light pineapple and candied yam esters; its very different. Body is a bit thin, but taste is good with fruity and wheaty notes. Slightly nutty finish. Watery mouthfeel comes with the thin body. A better beer than I was expecting.

Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Dunkel or bock? Iíd call it the latter, personally. Letís get one thing straight upfront: Iíve never been a fan of Full Sail, so I didnít expect much from this one. Not that this is anything world-beating, but itís quite nice. A bit on the sweet side, yes, but clean, with both a nice malt and hop character. The average score so far (3.0) proves once again that lagers just donít get enough love here. Pity that. BuckeyeBoy (7535) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 10, 2007
12 oz Bottle, Pours out a goldish amber topped with a white head. Aroma of malt and not much else to write about this one. The whole limited edition LAGER had me fooled it is really a Dunkel??? Radek Kliber (7320) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 27, 2010
