This was a most unsuspected surprise; I had heard good things about the 'Session' lagers. It carried more of a nose than one might expect: faint dark, whole wheat toast and a bit of cocoa. Even though the mouthfeel was a little watery and the first sip was a little grassy, the roasted bread and mild chocolate made it all better. There was medium carbonation and a caramel/coke-like acidity.
It ended clean and dry with a quick slap of bitter chocolate.
Alcohol Content 0 5.4%
Not really session strength as the name might suggest.
I wish I had bought a flat of this stuff; it was sure cheap enough.
Ingame Enhancement +1
Still in Seattle drinking great beer.
I am really liking the addition of dark/roasted malts to normally pale styles. Full Sail took a good lager and made it better with dark toast and light bitter chocolate.
