This is a one-off beer from Full Sail specially brewed for the Laurelthirst Public House's 16th anniversary. The name could be a reference to the recent election, or simply an evocation of good times at Laurelthirst over the years. Laurelthirst gets many of Full Sail's special limited release beers but this is the first I've heard of them having an exclusive. It's not much to get excited about, a simple yellow helles/pilsner type lager to be drunk by the pitcher in place of inferior choices like Pabst. It pours a light golden color, with very little head, and has a broad grainy malt profile. It's basically a crisp, innocuous lager with enough citric, gummy hops to keep the tongue intrigued, but not enough substance to follow though or leave any imprint on one's memory. The aftertaste is very clean, and I imagine this beer will please any regular Pabst drinker but they probably won't want to pay a buck or two extra for this. The mouthfeel is somewhat raw and beady, not at all cushiony like the better lagers out there, and there was a somewhat sour flavor that popped up from time to time, perhaps suggesting that the beer is not ideally fresh, although it wasn't much of a drawback. In summation, this could be a fun beer to get drunk off of, but there's just not enough flavor for a discerning beer drinker.
