The waiter at the restaurant wanted to tell me about this great brewery in Oregon. I agreed that Full Sail has a great history and reputation... after having visited their brewery in Hood River. I recommend the tour. Their location is picturesque.

This beer pours golden with a very thin film. It looks like how Coors pours in their commercial (which is very different from reality).

I am not normally a lager drinker, but I really liked this beer. It smelled fresh. You get wheat and a little bitterness. It was very easy to drink.

I recommend this as a very good alternative for BMC drinkers. It would be great on a hot day.
Plus, it has a fun, chubby bottle for this chubby drinker.

Session Lager is light amber gold, with not much of a head but crisp carbonation nonetheless. Smells like cider and malt to me. This is as pure a taste as you could hope for in a lager. A slight tartness is rounded out by smooth malt flavor. Crisp. Delicious. Though this is straightforward stuff, I've never had anything quite like it.

Pale gold with trailers of bubbles and steady snow white foam. Grass and soap on the nose with sweet grain.
Crackery malts with more slight grain sweetness and light noble coriander hop bite.
Sweet finish, clean linger. Soft, round, crisp, light.

Sweet and sour malts, enough hops, and good body. Old school. Lives up to the name.

This is as straightforward as it gets for a lager, in a good way. Pours a nice gold color with a finger and a half white head that fizzes away and leaves some lacing. Smell is of sweet malts, and light flowery hops. Taste follows the nose, comes in with sweet malts, some breadiness, and finishes slightly bitter thanks to the hops. Also a slight, slight hint of citrus. The big thing about this beer though is it's smoothness and drinkability. This thing goes down super easy, very refreshing. Overall, this is a great example of the pale lager style, and is replacing longboard lager as my go to lager as we speak.
