Full Sail Brewing Company adds LTD 04 to their Seasonal Line

"It's the Single Malt of Beer"

Hood River, Or - “Sometimes the best of a brewer’s art, like jazz, can be shown by the notes you don’t play. In our case we bring that elegance of simplicity into our new limited edition lager brewed with one select barley and one of the best of Northwest hops. By choosing to focus on these two single “notes” we highlight the finely balanced and complex interplay between the malt and hops. LTD 04 is a beautiful pale-golden color and brewed to highlight the elegant simplicity of both the pale malt and Willamette hops,” said Irene Firmat, Full Sail’s CEO and Founder. LTD 04 has been brewed, bottled and kegged, and is now shipping from the brewery.


LTD means limited edition, but according to Firmat, at Full Sail it means something even more: Live the Dream. “We’ve been living out our dream: brewing beer, our own way, in one of the most beautiful places on earth. We dedicate our LTD Series to everyone who’s living the dream, whatever that dream might be.”




“Our LTD Series is a great way to offer our customers a distinctive series of small batch lager beers that celebrate our creativity and honor the rich brewing heritage of great lager beer styles. Each LTD beer showcases an original lager recipe and is only available for a limited time. It lets us explore some of our favorite beer styles and we are thrilled at the response we have generated. Not only do our fans love this series, critics love it too. Since its release in 2007, our LTD Series has brought home 10 gold medals from the World Beer Championships and one from the North American Beer Awards,” added Firmat.


LTD 04 registers “Pale” on the “Malt-O-Meter” that is featured on the six packs. Beer aficionados, or the aspiring ones, will enjoy the bottom of the six-pack that features an easy-to-read chart of “Today’s Recipe,” including Willamette hops, 2 row pale malt, plato (18 degrees), IBU (45), alcohol by volume (7%) and any special ingredients. LTD 04 will be available in six-packs and draught from early December through March.

 So far I have liked all of the lagers..  but as the numbers go up, each and every lager just keeps getting better. Which release will make the pendulum swing the other way? Will it be the 04? So far the 03 is my favorite. The 02 was a little too corn flavored for me..  like adjunct madness. The o1 was a bit too robust and rich with odd winter warmer-like flavors. I look forward to this!
