11oz Brown Stubby Bottle with "tools required" cap and a best by date of 10/19/2014 poured into a Saint Arnold 8oz tour glass

Appearance: Pours a clear straw yellow with 1/2 finger of head that develops into a fine lace

Smell: Grainy malt up front with a faint floral hop note

Taste: A lot of simple grain and malt flavor with a slight hop bitter in the finish

Mouthfeel: Very crisp and light with no shortage of flavor

Overall: There is a lot of flavor in here for a pale lager. The all-,alt characteristics really shine through without affecting the mouthfeel. The name speaks the truth, this is a great session lager when you want something full-flavored and unoffensive. I would offer this to even the strongest naysayers of craft beer.

wow! I bought this as something new to try. it was on the bottom shelf and cheap 11 bucks for a 12 pack. the mouthfeel is awesome and maybe a little salty but it was GOOOOD! im not a huge fan of lagers as i prefer IPA or malt liquor but this did ir for me. I could drink this all night long. Taste was crisp and yummy, a little hops a little malt no corn. straw yellow looking poured into a pint glass. just the right amount of bubbles salt and flavor...light tasting but with just enough charachter to grab me and slap me and drink another! this stuff rocks!!!

Light straw like complexion the head was practically non existent. The nose is full of straw, and grain but I think I caught a little Apple. The flavors have a grain and barley character with some cereal maltiness. The feel is light but a bit abrasive with a lot of carbonation. Sessionable based on its lightness on the stomach but I probably wont drink a ton of these.

Full Sail Session Lager
11 oz brown bottle
Enjoy by 11/16/14
Served in a juice glass

Pours a clear color with a yellow tint, looks like piss. A foamy white head forms on top and then becomes a thin, circular head on top.

Whiffs of grains and freshly cut grass.

Flavors of cereal grains with lemon zest and a mini hop snap on the finish. Extremely clean and crisp with each welcoming sip.

What we have here is a classic session beer with an incredibly high drinkability level. True to the style and one of the better crossover beers I've had in some time.
