Full Sail Brewing continues to add to its successful Session lineup of beers with both seasonals and year-round releases. Some of its Session varieties hit it out of the park while others are experiments that do not pan out as visioned such as its recent Session Dark Cherry Black Lager. However with its latest release, Full Sail Brewing has definitely hit the mark with its new Sesión Cerveza Mexican Style Lager.
Channeling its inner Mexican brewer, the Full Sail Brewing team has truly crafted a Session Lager that exemplifies the style at hand. Sesiόn Cerveza deserves props for creating a light lager that truly satisfies a thirst that this beer style is designed to accomplish. Plus at only 4.5% ABV and 15 IBU, Sesiόn Cerveza is not too filling.
Upon opening an 11 oz. bottle of Sesiόn Cerveza the bottle cap greets you with ¡Hola!. Of course the underside of the bottle cap contains the Full Sail’s fun game of Rock-Paper-Scissors. But with this new beer this is not the only game as the bottom of the six-pack carrier offers a game of Sesiόn Thumb Wrestling Championships.
“Straw gold in color, and light in body, Sesiόn Cerveza is brewed with Pilsner malt, flaked corn, and Celeia and Northern Brewer hops,” stated Full Sail Brewmaster Jim Kelter in a release. “The pour is pure gold in a bottle.” Sesíon Cerveza offers the refreshing character of the imports in a locally crafted beer, perfect for your next fiesta. The hops impart subtle hints of lemon and spice to complement the crisp malt body.
Look for Sesiόn Cerveza Mexican Style Lager year-round from Full Sail Brewing available in 11 oz. stubby bottles in 6-packs, 12-packs and on draft. Sesiόn Cerveza will also be available in the summer Mashup variety 12-pack.
