Golden color. Nice thin head. Bready, malt-accented aroma with subtle grassy hops. Smells like a nice "session lager". Slightly thin on the palate, with a light bread accent. Finishes kind of watery...it’s ok but more macroish than I expected. SamuraiArtist (292) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Bottle: Pours light yellow with medium sized white head. Slightly malty aroma. Flavor is pretty malty for such a light beer, some sourdough bread and biscuity flavors. Corn sugar flavors also. Crisp finish with some barely detectable hops at the end. This is actually pretty good for what it is. I would drink this on a hot day but at no other time of the year. tennisjoel (1460) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2007
This pours clean with a golden body and an attractive head. Aromas of corn, honey, and some grassy hop notes. Clean on the palate. A nice refreshing lager...pilsner like qualities. This is a good well made beer and one I’d purchase again. desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Slightly hazy gold body with just a miniscule ring of foam around the edges. Aroma of sweet, grainy malts. Flavor is quite malt-dominated, very sweet with a touch of honey. Practically no hops. Carbonation is fine. Finish is sticky and a bit sour. Pretty good for what it is. redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2007
Honey malty aroma a little yeasty. Pours light blonde. Honey malt, there is a nice crisp bite to it, grainy, cereal flavor, its mostly malt but there is a little hop spice in there. It finishes dry. Not a bad lager better than a lot of macros.

7/03/2007: Full Sail Session Premium Lager comes in a short and fat 11 oz bottle. I like the unique bottle design, but what happened to the 12th ounce?! When poured, its color is golden yellow and it is ultra clear. There is a mild to moderate amount of visible carbonation. There was a thin white head, but that disappeared pretty quickly and didn’t leave any residual crown or anything. The aroma and flavor are lightly malty, grainy, and have some grassy/spicy hops. This beer reminds me of a Kolsch or Dortmunder, but not quite as good or unique. However, this beer is light, crisp, and refreshing on the palate just like many beers that fall into the previously mentioned styles. Session Premium Lager is fun to drink and goes down easy. It isn’t anything overly special, but it sure beats the macro alternatives any day!asedzie (828) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 29, 2007
11 oz bottle (Alc 5.1% by Vol; 090707 12:32 FL) from Yonkers65. Thank you for sending this to me Bruce.. I really appreciate it.
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2007 Bottle. Pours golden with thin white head. Green apple diacetyl aroma, a lot like a white wine smell. Flavor is good maltiness with a very slight adjunct edge to it. Just enough hops to balance out the malt, but no real hop flavor or bitterness.A funny beer - a microbrewery doing a macro. But I gotta say, I love the bottle caps with "rock-paper-scissors" images. hallie (5) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2007 does not count
Clean, crisp, drink ice cold. Chardonnay aftertaste is pleasing. A very tasty lager with a perfect hop profile for the style. Stubby bottle makes drinking fun on a hot summer day. If your worrying about losing 1 ounce of beer (it’s a 11oz bottle), you have a "probem"... mistersinalin (381) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Wow! I was really surprised by the low percentile on this one. On a hot day, please give me a cooler full of Session and I’ll try and extend it into the early evening. This is a really clean and crisp lager that performs a dissappearing act after each chug. I like this enough to keep the 11 oz. size from bothering me. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 19, 2007
