Full Sail set out to re-create decent "lawnmower" beer, beer you want to drink on a hot day, or while helping your buddy move or whatever. They have largely succeded.
Discussion of the appearance must start with the bottle; Full Sail was reportably able to purchase the original molds from the now defunct Olympia brewery for a truly retro look that has a lot of sentimental value here in the north west. The beer its self is pale golden with with a light half inch head and a bit of lacing. Aroma is lightly hopped with hints of hay and tin. The taste is very full for an American lager. It's refreshing to be able to taste hops and barley in what is essentially a "Miller Time" sort of beer. Mouth feel is a little flat, and could use a hint more carbonation. Over all a very drinkable beer. Go pick up a 12 pack.

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".
