3.48/5 rDev -4.9%
First time having anything by full sail, but what caught my eye was the red lager on the bottle. Poured into a glass almost no head despite being fairly carbonated. A dark amber you'd expect from an ale. Smelled sweet, first pull was different and not off putting . Enjoyed the carbonation and the body which was a little distracted by the tingling of the carb. Almost a light brown sugar after taste and almost no hop notes at all. Considering the high abv for a brew lager this is pretty great. Sorry for the lack of descriptive language lost my sense if smell due to being sick, just now slowly getting it back. Will get again once full senses come back (olfactory). Would recommend if your wanting something different to enjoy. No risks here

First beer I can remember in the now popular "session IPA" mold. Fest does a great job of keeping a great flavor on a thin bodied, highly drinkable beer. Pours a surprisingly dark amber with a soupy head. Smell is floral, taste is a non bitter hoppyness with notes of butterscotch. Mouthfeel is smooth and buttery. Overall I great drinker and one to look forward to in the winter.

3.64/5 rDev -0.5%
A: The beer is clear dark amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that quickly died down, leaving a patch of bubbles in the center, a collar around the edge, and a thin film covering the surface in between.
S: Light to moderate aromas of toasted malts are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has a lot of flavors of toasted malts, but no sweetness is apparent because the malts are balanced out by a slight amount of bitterness and associated flavors of grassy hops.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied, clean and mostly smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and I would have no problem knocking back of few of these in succession.

Short bottle, short review, best I've had from Session. (Full Sail)
A: Pours a clear, red-amber-mahogany body with a brief, near white head that fades and doesnt lace.
S: Toasty rye bread/wheat bread combo with caramel and maybe some hazel nut spread or a drizzle of toffee. (good but faint)
T: Wonderfully follows smell, w toasted, full grain bread more flow of caramel, nuttiness, zesty, spicy hops that provide bitterness to balance. Then into a long, drying, malty back end with a very pleasant lingering bitter sweet spicy finish. Taste is best part.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Light carbonation, but good tingly mouth feel.
O: A dark Lager, or mid-dark Czech style. Very original, very good, very good food beer. Must try, but a bit too sweet for me to make it a regular, or a, well, a session. I think it's a winter seasonal.
