3.65/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Looks like your everyday adjunct lager with absolutely no head at all. Also no lacing to speak of. Body is very pale straw and crystal clear with no bubbles at all. It looks like colored water. It does surprisingly leave lacing on the glass during consumption somehow.

S - Lots of grain up front with the initial smell. A small dose of hops is present. Not much going on here.

T - A small hop bite up front that is fruity and earthy, followed by a very grainy malt taste. It's pretty simple and straightforward. Very minimal aftertaste. Although it's not complex at all, I feel myself wanting more of the taste instantly.

M -Full enough to not be watery, but not a heavy beer by any standards. Light to medium bodied, and it sways towards the light side of things. Heavier carbonation than I originally thought it would be which allowed it to have a lively characteristic.

D - I don't know if I'm just buying into the hype of the name, but the drinkability is high. It's highly refreshing and thirst quenching. Totally living up to the name. Session Lager is a session beer.

Grade - One thumb up. It's not a great beer, but it's certainly not bad. After seeing the beer and smelling it I feared the worst. It bounced back with a decent taste which after all, is the most important thing. I was pleasantly surprised. I'd have Session Lager again.

A--Really light yellow/straw colour. Medium head dissolves quickly. Little to no lacing.

S--Not overly aromatic. A little grassy/wheat smell, slight malt, and a hint of floral hops.

T--Very good. Crisp with a hint of sweet malt and just a little, tiny hop kick. Not bitter in the slightest.

M--Very light feel, Good amount of carbonation makes it very crisp and refreshing. Easy drinking sessionable beer.

O--I really like lagers, especially in the summer when you're sitting around the grill or maybe up at the lake fishing. I could easily down 4 or 5 of these and feel like I had just had a lot of quality beer without getting hammered. Not the best best lager I've had, but definitely in the top 10. Well done, Full Sail.

11oz stubby bottle poured into a tall pilsner glass. Bottle has a best by date of 8/17/14.

Its smooth but 1/2 way to tasteless....for light beer drinkers its perfect and priced right. they short change u an ounce, has a light floral smell....very faint...
not sure why they are trucking it from Oregon to Florida. as my garage fridge is full of "Real beers" i will keep a 6 of these for those "light beer drinkers"
The aromatics are a bit strange but quickly forgotten once it hits ur t-buds.
