Knowledge Is Half the Battle
A Review of Session Premium Lager by Full Sail Brewing Co.

Drinking better beer is all about knowledge. You don't have to know the entire beer spectrum. You don't have to drink something dark. You don't even have to like anything outside of your favorite style. But at the very least, you do have to know the style you drink in order to make good decisions. It's sad that most trash beer drinkers have absolutely no idea what the style is supposed to taste like. This is why the craft beer movement is so important. There are infinitely better beers out there at comparable costs. I've been on a personal mission to find high quality, yet affordable lagers and pilsners that I can showcase as a cost comparison. One such brew is the Full Sail Session Lager. Put simply, this is what Budweiser, Miller and Coors are supposed to taste like.

In the glass, Session Lager has a very typical straw coloration with a slightly darker hue. The aroma is very clean and floral with hints of citrus. The taste is nicely balanced between a warm hop profile and zesty lemon notes. There are also some buttery notes that nicely fill out the body. The mouthfeel is light and smooth, giving the beer a very high level of drinkability. The finish is also very light and leaves little aftertaste.

Overall, the Full Sail Session Lager is a rock solid lager that is perfect as a lighter session beer. I can drink these little beauties all day long and never grow tired of them. I can recommend this beer to any level of beer fan, but especially to novices, to which I issue the following challenge: get your hands on a Session Lager and compare it side-by-side to your favorite piss water. Take a sip of one, take a sip of the other, rinse and repeat. I guarantee that you will be completely enlightened to the better beer movement by the time you finish, and your precious big name beer will forever taste like dirty dish water.

This is the big take-home point of better beer. It's not snobbery or elitism. It's only about consumer knowledge. If one of your friends was drinking a can of rancid milk labeled ''soda'', wouldn't you feel the need to hand them a Coke? Sure, people might prefer Pepsi or Mountain Dew, but rancid milk is not soda. So join us in the fight for better beer and pick up a case of Session Lagers. Intercept your friends' Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors products. Trust me, they'll thank you for it. After all, knowledge is half the battle!
