Drink of the Week: Full Sail LTD 03

We love this time of year not only becauce we finally get a break from the cold, soggy winter here in Portland, but also because it means it's time for summer seasonals in the beer world. So we were especially happy this week to receive Full Sail's latest limited-edition summertime release, the LTD 03. This golden pilsner is is packed with floral notes (jasmine, honeysuckle) on the nose, with just the slightest spicy hint of clove. On the palate, it's crisp and light, with floral notes, a touch of breadiness, and a nicely restrained hoppy bitterness that carries you all the way through the clean, refreshing finish. We can't wait to drink this with some barbecued chicken or fish and chips. Either way, it's just the thing to sip while lazing around in the sun this summer. Available through September, it retails for about $7 a six-pack.
