4.13/5  rDev +13.8%

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains lager yeast, light caramelized malts and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out with some breadiness from lager yeast and a thin malt character. Then a hops presence that is strong for the style but not over-powering comes in. There’s some mild malt sweetness in the background and a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and very crisp, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a very nice lighter beer to pound down for a long time.

Tennessee

3.03/5  rDev -16.5%

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a half finger white head. Good carbonation leads to a long lasting head with a minimal bit of lacing.

Aroma is a mix of flowers and steamed vegetables. There is also a solid bready malt base that is very appealing and pilsener-like.

Everything goes wrong on the flavor. It's like eating a huge pile of cooked vegetables. The DMS is off the charts! It overpowers the floral hops and the malt is barely able to sneak through. It becomes about the only thing noticeable about the beer and that is not good. Mouthfeel is very watery with an odd sharp, almost metallic, bitterness.

Overall, not a good effort from Full Sail. I can tell there is possibly a good beer lurking underneath the off flavors but there is too much for it to overcome. One to avoid.

3.58/5  rDev -1.4%

Best by 10/12/12.

Pours a clear light gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and a mild herbal hop aroma. Taste is much the same with a mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is very drinkable but somewhat unexciting.

Texas

2.6/5  rDev -28.4%

12 fl oz brown glass bottle with twist-off pressure cap served into a Uinta brewing glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, California. Acquired at a Trader Joe's for somewhere between 1 and 2 dollars. Reviewed live. Expectations are average given the brewery.

Served straight from the refrigerator. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a four finger beige head of decent cream, decent thickness, and good retention. Colour is a light pale yellow. Transparent and translucent. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Not extraordinarily vibrant. Pretty standard for the style.

Sm: Dry malts and generic floral hopping - I'd guess saaz or spalt. Straw. Generic barley. An average strength aroma. This is shaping up to be pretty meh.

T: Straw and barley form the foundation, with minimal specialty malts coming through. Background floral hopping is hardly noticeable. Obscenely simple. Boring and bland. Not at all subtle. Very meh.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with some increased coarseness and dryness in the third act. Light. Too thick for the lack of flavour.

Dr: Drinkable but boring and bland. I wouldn't bother with this again. Another mediocre offering from Full Sail. Why brew this? If I wanted affordable pasasable garbage, I'd buy Simpler Times pilsner.

3.8/5  rDev +4.7%

Pours a light fizzy head, reinforced by many bubbles rising from the etch at teh bottom, bit of lacing, over brilliantly clear pilsner tan colored beer.

Nose is typical pils, light toasty pilsner malt, little hay, hint of straw, touch of soft lager, just a bit of grassy hops.

Taste has a bit more than the nose, more in the toasty pilsner malt, some straw and light hay, light soft layered lager malt flavors and a crisp lager flavor, touch of sweetness. Light bitterness with some grassy and slightly earthy hops. Finish is dry and crisp, more light grassy and slight herbal hops, bit more lager flavors with light hay.

Mouth is med to lighter bodied, decent carb.

overall not bad, decent pilsner flavors, lighter on the hops but tasty and drinkable, although overall a bit lighter than I expected.

3.43/5  rDev -5.5%

Bright, crystal-clear golden body with a rich, thick white head. Aroma is mild, grass-like, perhaps slightly musty with a nearly hidden sense of mild malt grain in the background. Taste brings out a decent cereal-like flavor with a nicely balanced soft bitterness. Mouthfeel is light, soft, clean and crisp.

A good, slightly above average pilsner. Nothing extraordinary, but a satisfying thirst quencher.
