Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
"Our Amber is a sweet, malty, medium-bodied ale with a spicy, floral hop finish. It's brewed with 2-row Pale, Crystal and Chocolate malts. And we hop it with Mt. Hoods and Cascades. We're as proud of it today as we were back in '89. And over the years it's earned 14 Gold Medals. Not that we're keeping track or anything.

ABV 5.5% IBU 31"

3.2/5  rDev -14.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

APPEARANCE: A mahogany brown color with a pretty good looking, slightly off-white head about a quarter-inch thick. This is a pretty lively beer with plenty of bubbles darting to the surface as it awaits the first sip.

SMELL: There is a lot of toasty malt aroma in this one along with some nuttiness. It smells like a nut brown ale.

TASTE: The Full Sail Amber sure is nutty. It is also quite a bit hoppier than I expected, but the roasted malt flavor beats out the hops by the end of the sip. The malt flavors, however, are not rich and sweet, rather they are dry and a little burnt. A hint of lemony citrus creeps into the aftertaste as well and it becomes more prominent with each sip.

MOUTHFEEL: There is a strongly carbonated feel up front, but that quickly fades and the Amber becomes more oily after the middle of the sip. The citrus aftertaste also creates a bit of a pucker.

OVERALL: Aside from the slight pucker at the end of the sip, this is a pretty drinkable beer. It is a little on the heavier, maltier and darker side for an amber, but remains a very easy drinker. I would drink this one again, but I probably won't go out of my way for it.

Not much aroma. Pretty bitter ... Overhopped for my taste. Presents well with a nice amber color and nice head.

[I am copying these notes over from RateBeer ... it does not require as long of review. I tasted this some time ago so I can't add anything.]
