look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

I like the All-in Amber....I think its an easy drinking beer and would enjoy any time of year. The beer poured a light amber with thin white head that is only leaving a spotty lace. The scent is non-descript and the taste is nicely balanced with light bread notes and a slight bitterness at the end to clean the pallet. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall quite nice....I like it. (412 characters)

2.62/5  rDev -28.6%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

A: Orangey-amber, slightly hazy.

S: Malty and fruity, but almost musty. Pretty pungent.

T: Pretty nice balance of malts, almost roasty, almost fruity, almost nutty, but the musty/peaty aroma dominated for me, coupled with a bit of alcohol.

F: On the smoother side, which I found fitting for a heavier amber ale.

O: Interesting, lots of flavors to savor, but the pungent aroma I've tried to describe kept me from loving it. Nicely complex for an amber ale though, so just knocked it a bit down from a 3. (506 characters)

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Pours a brilliant, coppery, amber color with a faintly tan head. No lace to speak of.
Smell is malt, caramel, nuts, a mild sweetness.
Taste is lightly roasted malt, caramel, nutty, and faint, herbal hops.
Medium bodied, sharp effervescence with a dry finish. Very drinkable with a nice, nutty/malt aftertaste. (309 characters)

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Not much of a head, bartender may have wanted to give me a full pour.

Clear amber color. Not too light, but with a nice glow.

Delicious taste. Flavorful, caramel overtones that lingered on the palette. Smell was rich, chocolatey.

Felt full in the mouth, but carbonation light.

An excellent unexpected find. (310 characters)

3.47/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: A rigidly firm beige head sits above a autumn orange colored body. Fine misty carbonation within, soapy pocket voids along the vessel walls with a big sloppy dispaly of foam work for lacing.

S: Toasted grain sweetness with a slight hint of chocolate. Hops are very reserved here, malt depth is ok per style just a bit linear in aromatic features.

T: Sweet speciality grains, cherry malt with some fruity fruggel hop notes are first impressions. Late hit of chocolate is very evident, sweet, with a spicy piney-chocolate combination finish.

M: Frothy mouthful, spicy, good rate of carbonation within a medium-full body. Husky feel.

O: Overall sweet, fruity, somewhat chocolately not your typical american/west coast citrus style, but a generally good flavor none the less. (782 characters)

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – As the name would suggest the beer pours a nice amber color with a one finger just off white head. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is sweet of toffee and caramel with a little bit of a roasted bready smell as well. Along with these aromas are some lighter notes of earthy nature and a lighter cocoa smell.

Taste – The taste is sweet and bready upfront with lots of caramel and a lightly roasted bread tastes. The caramel takes on a little bit of a toffee flavor as the taste advances. Some grainy tastes come to the tongue a bit later and are joined by some flavors of an earthy and nutty nature more toward the end. Even with the earthy and nutty flavors, the sweet from the beginning remains the strongest of the tastes with it mingling well with the rest to produce a smooth somewhat wee-heavy like flavor to be left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is medium both in terms of its thickness and creaminess as well as its carbonation level; the combination making for a very easy drinking brew.

Overall – A nice easy drinking, a little on the sweeter more caramel side brew that is quite enjoyable. (1,289 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Beautiful amber color with a glow, but the head isn't much at all.

Caramel malt aromas smell sweet and a little grainy. Has a cereal tone. Hops are light, and a little pine-y. Okay.

Follows the nose with sweet caramel malt notes, crisp toffee, ale yeast, and very light floral/pine hop character. Decent.

Drinks okay. Has a bit of body, too, but I'm not a fan of the obviousness of the alcohol. Carbonation is squelched a bit, but has a light sizzle.

A decent beer in a vast style. I used to enjoy two or three of these in one night, but it's lost its luster. (563 characters)

3.86/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This brew pours a solid, opaque amber color with a fluffy tan one finger head which dissipates fairly quickly however remnants of the head stay on top of the brew until the end. Light lacing on the glass. Good carbonation.

The smell is sweat malts and peat moss, kind of like a Scottish Ale. Slight alcohol/boozy smell sweet and roasted malts and a caramel smell

The taste follows the nose with sweet the roasted malts hitting the tongue the peat moss then a caramel taste. Light piney hops on follow on the backend.

The mouthfeel is tangy, probably due to the carbonation. Creamy and slightly oily on the backend after swallowing.

Overall this is a good, solid Amber/Red ale. Very drinkable at any time of the day or year and one worth trying. (748 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

This beer is positively clear and amber with a thin white head and a cool stalactite / stalagmite lacing pattern!

The aroma is like caramel malts mixed with date bread and a tiny bit of chocolate. It's a very alluring combination!

Just as the nose the flavour is caramel malty in character, grainy with notes of dark fruit. It starts off a bit bready and grainy and mid way it evolves into a malty sip and then finishes with some earthy hop bitterness which is actually a bit dry which makes this beer fairly complex!

The mouthfeel is moderate to full bodied, a little slick, and sweet transitioning to dry. Very nice! The carbonation is moderate making this a perfect beer!

Overall I find this beer exceptional and would recommend it to anyone, even someone new to craft beer as it would be a great crossover to one that has a little bit of hop bitterness to lure them in to the world of IPA's. (899 characters)

3.6/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Clear deep amber in color. Forms a smallish, creamy, light tan colored head that eventually recedes to just the faintest surface coating. No lacing.

S: Aroma is caramel malts, with a slight earthy or bready quality to it. Maybe a hint of citrus hops or maybe I'm just imagining it.

T: Taste is interesting in that the primary flavor is caramel malt, yet the malt is not overbearing. Lightly hopping provides a bit of pine flavor and grapefruit pith bitterness.

M: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Low-medium bitterness.

O: A decent beer. Certainly nothing too exciting and not exactly my favorite style. But a well-made gateway beer that should appeal to the novice craft beer drinker. (698 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

This beer tastes and smells just like Fat Tire, which is a good thing since I can't get that around here. A delectable amber with a grainy nose and a sweet malty finish. I could drink this all day ( and I just might). I have yet to have a disappointing beer from Full Pint. They might just be the best local brewery. (316 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 FL OZ bottle into a pint glass. BEST BY MAY2013. LOT 282.

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear amber with a thin white head. Decent carbonation.

Smell: Very grainy. Typical spent grain malt aroma of a brewery (or paper mill!) Slight finishing aroma of chocolate malts (which is indicated on the label.)

Taste: Wow, I'd say the chocolate malts dominate the flavor of this beer. Very interesting for an amber ale. Not very hoppy.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat thin, but typical of a brown and/or amber ale in my opinion.

Overall: I was expecting this to be a boring, ho-hum typical amber/brown ale, but the dominant chocolate malt aroma and flavor but this into an interesting subcategory. I'm impressed! (711 characters)

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a caramel color with a 1.2 inch head. Smell is mild, some malts. Taste is also light, malts, some faint hops, just a touch of caramel. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a rather subdued but refreshing beer. (259 characters)

12oz bottle: this one pours a clear, coppery amber color. There was a small, fizzy off white head that didn’t linger long or leave much lacing at all. Lighter aroma. Caramel malts, a hint of roastiness and maybe a hint of nuttiness. The taste is decent. Balanced without any real sweetness or bitterness. Some roasted malts, a hint of the nuttiness caramel malts and a hint of dryness in the finish. A decent brew! (416 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle poured into a pint glass.

Clear amber color with two fingers of off-white head that didn't stick around too long. No lacing left.

A little bit of roasted malt, some caramel, and minor chocolate notes. A very minor hop note at the end.

Toffee, caramel, some roasted malts. A little chocolate follows it up at the very end. Very clean finish.

Medium bodied and very slick feeling, but does become a little bit thin near the end of each sip.

Not a very crazy brew, but it has an amazing drinkability. (509 characters)

tap

Pours amber clear with a white lacing.

Brown sugar malts in the nose.

Taste follows with brown sugar malts, also some molasses sweetness and mild hoppiness.

Softer carbonation over a medium body.

Pretty good, I would have this again. It's not daring but its not trying to be, just a good representation of the style. (326 characters)

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Tanish brown/amber, nice 2 inch creamy head and plenty of lacing.

Smell - Rye, hops, some yeast and a nutty, caramel malt aroma. Added spices and a little earth hop note at the finish.

Taste - Caramel nutty malts with some dry dank dry hops. Nutty, smooth, moreso a brown ale then a amber ale. Has some light fruity hops and a little spice kick. Dont really get much red ale in this.

Mouthfeel - Its light to medium without anything over powering flavor. Tounge gets malts, minor hops and spices. Palette gets alot of nutty malts and remaining hops. Finish is nutty, caramel malty.

Overall - DOesnt really taste like what style its to be. More malty and caramel/toffee then expected. Its decent but theres better out there. Worth a drink but nothing to special. (802 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

3.5 A: Clear orange amber color. A little over one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is a touch below average and a small ring of lacing is left.

4.0 S: This smells just like a tasty brown ale. Big toastiness and nuttiness. Dry graininess. Very, very little caramel. Earthy hops.

4.0 T: Tastes like a brown too. Again, toastiness and nuts abound. Dry graininess and a touch of caramel. Earthy hops. Pretty much the same as the nose.

3.5 M: Ligher medium body. Active carbonation that comes off slightly biting. Low creaminess. Otherwise, fine.

3.5 D: Not much of an amber ale, but a good beer nonetheless. (645 characters)

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

A: Pours a hazy amber color with four fingers of head. Way, way overcarbonated.

S: I first get a sweet toffee aroma that quickly turns to a harsh nuttiness that I get with a lot of beers with English yeast strains. In the background, I get some tropical hoppiness.

T: Very similar to aroma, but a little crisper than I thought it'd be based on the aroma. The toffee sweetness and harsh nuttiness is toned down a bit leaving a balanced caramel sweetness and tropical fruity and bitter hoppiness.

M: Way overcarbonated, so much that it's hard to taste anything really.

O: This beer is overcarbonated with a harsh aroma and a bland flavor. (641 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear reddish amber with a small amount of white, frothy head with large bubbles.

S: Faint aroma of malt lies underneath a subtle aroma of hop spiciness.

T: Well balanced flavors with a solid malt base, with hints of caramel, providing a springboard a noticeable, but not overpowering hop character. The bottle says they used Warrior and Fuggle, and it does seem to have more of an English character than an American one, even with the Warrior.

M: Light and crisp, but still relatively full flavored. A moderate level of carbonation also lends to the perceived lightening of this beer making it something that could be enjoyed in the winter or the summer.

O: An enjoyable beer, not something to make you stop and stare, but something that could be enjoyed in a session type scenario. It's a solid beer, and I look forward to trying some of their other offerings. (877 characters)

Pours a clear amber with a large head. Fairly peristant and nice lacing. Smell is very mild- just a bit of toasty malt and herbal hops. Taste is toasted malt. Just a bit of caramel. Some fruit notes and some herbal hops in the finish. Medium to light bodied and well carbonated. Very easily drinkable. Overall a decent amber ale. (329 characters)

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

S: A little champagne like on the pour, generic in the glass bordering on sweet.

A: Hazy orange, very small head with little lace. Looks like a Yuengling.

M: Molasses like finish, with a nicely toasted flavor. Direct from the bottle I felt this was overly foamy. In the glass, it's average.

T: Toasted not burnt malts. Odd "bean" note, like kidney bean only sweeter. Alcohol at the back is subdued, but makes itself known.

O: A frosty glass of okay. Had better, had worse. I find Yuengling or JW Dundees to be more exciting, so for the $$$, I wouldn't seek this one out. (579 characters)

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Clear amber with lots of bubbles and a two-finger, white and creamy head that lasted more than a few minutes. Moderate lacing.

S: Toasted malt and caramel. Fruit aromas. Very pleasant.

T: More sweetness than I was expecting. Not much hop bitterness, but more than none. Caramel and fruit flavors. Interesting.

M: Light to medium bodied. Very smooth with moderate carbonation.

O: I like this one. Maybe, a little too sweet, but not bad. It looked really nice, smelled pleasant and had a smooth and refreshing mouthfeel. (552 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a standard pint glass, nice transparent amber color with slight haze, off white head but no lacing.

Smell is caramel malt, hint of hop fruitiness, very clean but pleasant.

Taste is smooth and nicely sweet with a kick of bitterness. Flavors range from some caramel and light roasted malt, to hints of fruit (cherries?). Very clean flavors and smooth.

Mouthfeel is great, very crisp for an amber ale (not over sweet or cloying), nice sweetness thats cleaned up by solid bitterness with a good amount of carbonation.

Overall, very nicely done amber ale touching on amber lager standards but with better malt flavor and hints of fruitiness. (652 characters)
