11oz bottle: Clear orange with a thin white head, light hay aroma with flowery hops, starts and ends lightly bitter, watery texture with playful carbonation. Not bad for the style. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 22, 2006
in bottle. golden color. surprising amount of flavor, interesting hop balance. Aroma is a bit on the sharp side, but flavor ends up on the positive side of the light lager equation. dwedin (249) - Happy Valley, Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2006
Crystal light amber. Spicy hop and mild malt aromas. Medium body, weak but clean and smooth flavors. Didn’t like it at all the first time I tried it but it’s sort of grown on me, still not a great beer but good and drinkable, but there is a whole beer missing from the half case with it being 11 oz stubs. bitterpeanut (15) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 13, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2006 This is Full Sail Brewing’s answer to the Premium Light Lager. The 11 ounce Red Stripe bottle knock-off but with a screw-off cap should give you a good idea where Full Sail is heading with this beer. A nice clean filtered beer around SRM 2. Aroma has a moderate corn smell (not sure if it is from DMS or corn adjuncts) with a fairly subdued sipcy hop aroma. Lacing is a bit weak. A good overall example of the style. With a 5.1% ABV, not sure if I would consider it a “session” beer, but after 4 or so I’m sure I’ll consider it a session beer. ;) Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Honey-gold with a small head and aromas of sweet malts and some grassiness. Rich, balanced flavors of malts, grains and spicy hops. No off flavors of cereals or corn. Good representation of this style. Slight bitter ending, but overall pretty impressive.

Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is hops, grass and malts. Flavour is grassy, papery, hoppy and very watery. Strong hayish hoppy aftertaste. But I still like the American hops in lagerbeer. TBone (18222) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2006
Golden color, small white head. Fruity, malty aroma. Malty, sourish, cardboard and grain flavors. Some sweet corn in the aftertaste. rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2006
(Stockholm Beer Festival 2006) Golden, small white head. Hoppy citrus aroma, some malt and toffee. Malty, citric flavor. some hops but with quite a mild finish. omhper (25740) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2006
[Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival] Clear golden, small head. Grassy and grainy. Softly malty. Well structured and very drinkable. I really like this simple little beer. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Hazy and light golden. Lively carbonation. Light yet chewy-smooth mouthfeel. Very doughy malts, with a honey-like sweetness. Hop aromas were nice (flowers, honey, faint spices, orange zest). Bitterness was mild; possibly adequate. Citrusy zing in the finish. Overall, pretty clean and easy to drink, without any crazy off flavors.
