Sent a friend to the store and thought he returned with some Red Stripes. Alas, a pleasant surprise, though I didn't know it right away. A twelve of Full Sail Session for $8.95. You'd never know it until you opened up the case though. This beer flies under the radar! No Brewer markings whatsoever! And I've been to the Full Sail Brewery.

Poured from an 11 oz. stubby bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly opaque golden hue with a smooth minimally herbal smell and a malty lager yeast nose. Notable hops when given a bit of a swirl half way through the glass.

Tastes of a rich pilsner yet finishes with an almost amber quality in that the malt finish lingers more than most lagers. Decent feel and slightly course on the close.

I will go camping with this beer!

Thin white bubbly head and pale gold color. Aroma is sweet, grainy and slightly vinous with grassy, piney, very "American" hoppiness. Flavor exhibits a lot of sweet American lager flavor without the cheap adjunct nastiness. Very clean. Finishes with a slight tinge of hoppiness. A very clean, sessionable beer for summer, or any time really. Think of it as a better tasting "stubby bottle beer".
