Found this in a can so I took the plunge. I can feel tomorrow's headache with every sip. Corn, grain, sweetish finish. Surprised by how fresh it is--canned less than two weeks ago--but I don't think it made much of a difference.

This is a throwback: a ninety nine cent can, particularly in pricey MoCo. Pours a nice white head above golden but it does not last. Nose is grainy but not great.

Solid butter and biscuit note and goes down super easy. Texture is a little thin and watery but here that might be more feature than bug.

Far tastier then the corporate macrononsense, this is eminently crushable, and well named.

I bought a half case of Full Sail Session Lager a while ago when it was available in New York State. I found the beer to be fairly unremarkable, but details of my impression have faded. I'm reviewing this to explain the significance of the 11 oz. bottle. Once upon a time the Northwest beers (Lucky, Oly, Heidelberg, Blitz, Rainier) were available in 11 oz returnable stubby bottles. For a brief time after Oregon passed the bottle return bill, designating the stubby as the industry standard, even brands like Pabst and Miller showed up in the stubby. This Session stubby is a nod to history. Does anybody remember the Pennsylvania steinie?

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance was a clear yellow color with some orange tint. The head was white and medium sized. The aroma is grass and mild hops. The taste is crisp and malt driven

Overall a good brew which had a lot of flavor along with a refreshing crisp taste. I drank half in the bottle and half in a glass. It has a good healthy yellow color with a good head. Smelt of good hops with an earthy smell as well. Tasted refreshing with a nice flavor of citrus and piney hops with the same earthy sensation from before. Went down really clean and smooth.
