Full Sail's Q2 Rotators: ESB and Vienna-Style Lager

In early January, Full Sail announced the launch of their new Pub Series, which joined LTD Lager and Brewer's Share as their 3rd line of rotating beers. Nut Brown Ale was the first in the Pub Series and ESB follows as the second. In the world of lagers, I'm especially excited about the LTD Series release of Vienna-Style Lager. Here are Full Sail's descriptions for both: 

The telltale signs of Spring arrive in the Gorge as mountain bikers begin to replace snowboarders and the snow melt feeds the rivers as white water rafters and kayakers anticipate the first runs of the year. Flowers cover the mountain meadows and blooms fill the orchards in the valley. Our pub staff knows that our ESB will be just the right beer to welcome Spring in the Gorge. ESB is a traditional ale brewed with attention to balance, highlighting both malt and hops. A combination of crystal malts give this beer its orange hue, and caramel complexities. UK and US Challenger hops were used exclusively throughout. Aromas of dry caramel and herbs are followed by a malty, medium bodied palate finishing with caramel flavors and a crisp bitterness. ABV 6.5% IBU 35

Vienna-Style Lager
This copper colored lager is refreshingly smooth, with a hint of dark roast and a clean hoppy finish. Brewed with pale, chocolate, caramel malts and hopped with Czech Saaz hops.
ABV 5.6% IBU 28 

Both  beers will be available only through the end of June.  I'll sample both and share my thoughts soon!
