A nice crystal clear orange-amber in the glass with a half finger white head of moderate bubbles that melt to nothing.
Nose is bready lager yeast sweet amber toasted malts and nuts. Very fresh tasting and pleasant.
Taste follows nose, toasted amber malts, bready middle, and a bock nuttiness.
Nice...very pleasant and an obvious premium craft attempt at a bock.
Nicely done.

12oz brown bottle with 04/12/07 as the best by date a good three months away. Poured into a pils glass it forms a well retained silky off white head. Body is a shiney clear copper and plenty of carbonation. Easy on the eyes.

The nose on this is very soft with some bready malts and slight toasty edge. Taste is bolder than it smells thankfully. Toasty on the frontside and enough bitterness to balance it out. Caramel is a factor as well and again is balanced out with some spices in the middle of each pull. Cleans up rather nicely for a bock and was easily gobbled. Buttery mouthfeel.

Notes: Similar to other full sail offerings in that I find them enjoyable, well priced and usually down the middle of most style guidlines. This is very good but don't expect anything shocking as that is simply not their style. Well done.

Thanks to msubulldog25 for this brew.

Pours a nice clear dark amber color, nice carbonation, nice little fizzy tan head which leaves quickly, no lacing afterwards. The nose is sweet and malty, spicy, and nice caramel tone. The taste follows the nose pretty much, sweet/malty, slightly spicy, and nice caramel after taste, a slight dry finish. Medium body. Drinkable, a nice brew from Full Sail, hope to see other's in this series.

Pour: 12oz bottle to pint glass. A caramel colored body capped by a thin tan head w/ iridescent notes that shrinks extremely quickly to a small halo and a swirl of lacing. A few bubbles break up through the brew, adding some splotches to the surface.

Nose: Light and 'lagerish'. Small amount of malt notes, apple cinnamon, lemon and chalk. Hops barely noticeable.

Mouth: Excellent flavor surprises me after the shortcomings of the aroma. Lots of brown sugar and malts concluded by a warmth rising from the swallow through the exhale. An odd mouthfeel, like that left behind a medicated lozenge. Almost an oily coat around the mouth that lingers long after swallow - somehow this is not unpleasant. Hops show through in the back w/ a nice bitterness that lingers after the beer has left the mouth. Fruit flavors - maybe plum. Extremely easy to drink - pretty high alcohol w/ no noticeable alcoholic flavors. Strong carbonation combines w/ the cough syrup feel to make a very unique mouthfeel. Very interesting beer.

Dark copper beer with a small light tan head, that goes fast leaving some lace. Aroma is mostly malty, small hop present. Mainlly malt driven flavours to this one, grainy in the finish some hops in the finish. I found this had some Bock like qualities. Mouthfeel is Ok for syle, not thin. An OK beer. not great , but not bad.

12 oz bottle. The underside of the cap says "Lou's Telekinetic Delivery" . It pours out a dark copper color without much of a head.

Nose is...well, a little boring. There's just not a lot going on here. Wet grass, cooked veggies, a hint of saaz.

Sweet malts noticible on the palate, but not much else. I definately recommend letting this warm up however, I took my time drinking this and it did become richer as it warmed.

Medium body and light carbontiopn. Finishes clean with little aftertaste.

There's nothing really objectionable here, and it certainly is easy to drink, but this is only slightly better than average. It's better than Michelob Amber Boch, but not likely to impress your average BA. It's a good candidate for your BMC drinking friends who think of SABL as "dark beer", or as a session beer when you just want something simple and decent.

From Full Sail's new LTD Series of seasonal brews ("LTD" means both "Limited" and "Live The Dream", according to FS)...my 12 oz. bottle poured to a standard pint.

As stated on the well-designed meadow-green label, this beer is "an easy-drinking albeit wicked awesome Limited Edition Lager from our ace crew of libationary wunderkinds."(!) The quip beneath the screwtop cap says "LIVE THE DREAM".

A: Amber/orange with about 1-finger of quickly dissipating ivory head. Lots of tiny carbonation bubbles ripple through this ultra-clear brew. A pretty attractive beer.

S: Lager yeast and lots of bready malt. Has an expected dry, slightly metallic aroma with an unexpected light spicing and lots of toasted caramel.

T: Big on the toasted cereal flavor. This is listed at 26 IBU and has so much malty caramel sweetness. Has a chocolate-ness not too distantly removed from cocoa puffs. Enough bittering Czech Saaz and Hellertau hopping to round off the finish and balance some sweetness.

M: Medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Starts creamy, but digresses to be too watery without much lingering aftertaste.

D: Really smooth and quite drinkable. Maybe a touch sweet for drinking too often, though nice flavors overall. Good for a try and worth getting again. Thumbs up.

This is the first bottling in a new seasonal line of beers released by Full Sail. Though its style is not listed anywhere on the packaging, a representative with the brewery confirmed the style as a "dark bock". The fun six-pack packaging includes check-boxes on the bottom for listing the beers features and includes another novelty: the "Malt-O-Meter"...
