12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear dark brownish-red with a one finger tan head that fades rather quickly leaving very little in the way of lacing.
Aroma of toffee and caramel along with noble hops. There is also some toast and nuttiness.
Flavor has caramel and nuts up front nicely complimented by spicy hops. Toffee and caramel in the background along with a little bit of toast. Moderate bitterness with a little bit of a creamy mouthfeel. Clean finish with just the smallest amount of stickyness.
Overall, a tasty lager but not one that really stands out from the pack. Really reminded me of SA Boston Lager. I would pick it up again if I saw it.

Pours a dark amber-orange color with a small head that lingers a bit. Malty aroma of bread, caramel, and yeast. Taste is rich caramel malt, thick bread, and light toast. Incredibly thick body and chewy mouthfeel for an amber lager, wow. Best vienna I’ve had. It’s more like bock really. Well made lager. nealblind (1864) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - APR 21, 2013
Lovely dark amber color. Smells of tart straw. Tastes first of straight up malt then moves into rich spiced caramel bread with a tail of hops. Light effervescence and medium mouthfeel. Very sessionable and similar to full sail’s session fest. Could hold up to even higher alcohol content. I’m thinking 7% or so. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Enjoy by date of " 09/03/14" stamped in white along the left side.
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
There was a two and a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light somewhat foamy lacing clinging to the glass.
The smell has a large amount of roasted caramel flavors presenting themselves in front of a toffee to nutty sort of flavoring. Light grassy/earthy bitter hops lightly dosed.
The taste was mainly sweet and malty bringing back the nuttiness and the roasty caramel flavors.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The aftertaste was semi - dry with a long drying finish.
Overall, LTD series by Full Sail, solid Vienna Lager and now my interest is piqued in more of this series. Sure hope, this is just a precursor of what’s yet to come...Full Sail send more LTD series beers. beastiefan2k (3979) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - SEP 10, 2014

Aroma is very clean with just a mild earthy and melanodin hints. Flavor has a mild generic hop bite to go along with the same mild earthy and melanodin hints. Tingly, mineral, finish with a mild hop presence. Really nice vienna, could drink this for a while.
The LTDs are coming faster now!
12 oz from a 6-pack . Winco store S.Salem. $5.88
Handsome deep amber beer with a largish light tan head.
Very malty aromas..toasted oat cereal comes to mind..a little nuttiness also.
Taste is semi sweet toffee,again a dose of nutiness, Sweet honey finish..and perhaps the fainest hint of hop in the end.
Nice enough on the tongue..good feel to it.
Overall a nice tasty lager troopie (2339) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle. Poured honey red with medium lasting white head. Aroma is biscuit and honey. Medium balanced flavour. Lekker hop finish, but subdued. tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2011
bottle. Pours a clear golden brown color with average sized off white head. Aroma of biscuit, hay. Medium bodied, yet still very full feeling, smooth, creamy palate, perfect session lager feel. Flavor has a distinct caramel presence, but it is very nicely done, not artificial or cloying, just tastes good. Also plenty of toast, hay, and a crisp bite thanks to the hops, which impart a very subtle bitterness on the finish. Simply a great lager, would be a go to beer for me.

12 oz bottle from 16 Tons. Surprisingly dark amber pour with a light bit of white head. Smells of grains, some bread, toffee, maybe a little nuttiness. Taste is sweet toffee, a little nutty, some bread and maybe light caramel. Probably my favorite of the LTD series so far, quite a surprisingly solid brew. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2011
[Bottle] Pours an orange color with a bit of haze to it. Large and lasting cap of foamy head. Aroma of caramel malts, sticky toffee and hints of smoke. Sweet rolls, mild spice, grassy hops and a light amount of smoke in the taste. Full in body and average carbonation levels. Toasted malty finish. I did enjoy this one quite a bit. I’d but this again.
