Aroma: honey, sweet pilsner malts
Appearance: clear golden/straw
Taste: honey, sweet pilsner malts, fruity/floral hops
Palate: light and easy drinking
Overall: a well made beer that is not very interesting
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Clear golden color, thin white head. Decent lace. Bready nose, light tart, sweet zest, some sourness. Little lemon peel. Little citrus hops. Pronounced carbonation. Lighter body. Not what I’d call smooth. Light bite, even. Not terrible, but not easy to drink, and intensely forgettable rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - DEC 3, 2012
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a half finger white head. Good carbonation leads to a long lasting head with a minimal bit of lacing.
Aroma is a mix of flowers and steamed vegetables. There is also a solid bready malt base that is very appealing and pilsener-like.
Everything goes wrong on the flavor. It’s like eating a huge pile of cooked vegetables. The DMS is off the charts! It overpowers the floral hops and the malt is barely able to sneak through. It becomes about the only thing noticeable about the beer and that is not good. Mouthfeel is very watery with an odd sharp, almost metallic, bitterness.
Overall, not a good effort from Full Sail. I can tell there is possibly a good beer lurking underneath the off flavors but there is too much for it to overcome. One to avoid.

August 15th, 2011 - My reviews of summer beers that are light, clear and crisp always do a great injustice to the style. An old Czech man who wiles away his times at breweries in bars in the country of his birth could probably tell you about the thousand different factors that make a good pilsner, but my training is grounded in ales. So, I try to supplement my descriptions with some image of back breaking labor or unpleasant sweating. But this isn’t fair just because I can’t pick out the differences between one, light, thirst quenching and well balanced beer from another. So, I’ll just be succinct and say that the Full Sail LTD Limited Edition Lager Recipe No. 3 is a great, light, quenching and well balanced beer. With its clear, golden color and a fuzzy, cotton head it looks the part, and smells the part too, with a clear mineral aroma and the light scent of malt, though it’s not pilsner malt per se. The flavor is delicate and mild, like a pale lager, but with more depth. The body is light and quenching with just enough carbonation to keep it interesting, and enough sugar to make this taste like an in-between meal treat. One finds clarity in the flavor mild acidity, and a general flavor profile that lends this to lawn mowing and lawn watching. Westmeister (2127) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Bottle. Poured orange/yellow with a big white head. Aroma is a little citrus, bread, and some minor spiciness. Taste is very spicy hops, touch citrusy and more grain/bread. Perhaps a bit past its prime, but ok nonetheless.

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a thin head. Smell is faint, but I can get just a hint of the floral hops they mention. Very smooth and crisp. Taste is only slightly malty, and allows very subtle flavors to play in this beer. jcos (1855) - Maryland, USA - NOV 7, 2012

Appearance: Pours a clear gold.
Aroma: Aroma of bready malt. No hop aroma.
Taste: Light bitterness, bready malt, maybe biscuit flavor.
Palate:Light body, nice amount of carbonation.
Summary: A solid pilsner but not amazing. My pour doesn’t match the picture, so unsure why.
12 oz bottle pours clear golden with a fluffy, white head. Aaaand it’s oxidized. Aroma and flavor of cereal grain, light hops, and dominated by cardboard. Bummer. blipp (9929) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Clean grainy base, with lighter flowery notes. Standard middle-of-the-road craft pils. LeftCoastRider (110) - , Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours clear gold with white head. Strong aroma of banana, and surprising taste of toasted malts - highly unusual in a pilsner. Pretty good.
