I first had this beer in 2008 in Utah of all places. Park City. I was there for a conference. And I really liked it. Fortunately, we can now get some of the Full Sail brews in Texas. Yee-haw.
Straight from my kegerator to a DFH barrel pint glass. Huge three-finger head; thick and clumpy; really good lace. The color is, of course, a nice orange/amber color. The head on this beer is really the reason I rate this a 4; it's fantastic. The nose is light and fruity. Strawberry notes dance with malty apple and pear. A casual aroma. Nothing in your face about it. Simple enough to be perfect for the style. The taste follows suit here, providing a light-hearted, fruity beer that delivers without being pretentious. Slightly grassy with a sweet caramel hint as well. Faint hop character rounds things out in the end. Mouthfeel is thinnish and kind of watery, but finishes nice and dry.
I really like this beer. There's nothing overtly fancy about it, but it's a solid, tasty, well-crafted beer. Totally sessionable at 5.50% as well. This would go well with plenty of dishes, but I'm thinking it makes a great companion for a greasy burger or a rich chicken sandwich. Light and fruity. A great spring or summer session beer.

Not much aroma. Pretty bitter ... Overhopped for my taste. Presents well with a nice amber color and nice head.
[I am copying these notes over from RateBeer ... it does not require as long of review. I tasted this some time ago so I can't add anything.]
