Think I got some bad luck here: Poured with almost no head; at first a few soap bubbles then a very thin read rose. Color is a hazy dark amber. Aroma is malty fruity hops. Flavor metalic malt hop bittersweet. Can tell that it would be a pretty good beer if whatever happened to it hadn't. Body is ok, but flat. Finish is at first sweet then bitter in not such a good way. Dang, was looking forward to this. From the Everything Shop on Canal near the Quarter.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance - Nothing special, amber color as expected, average head.
Smell - Again, nothing special, just some light maltiness.
Taste - Starts malty, but come through overbearingly sweet. Almost undrinkably sweet, in my opinion.
Mouthfeel - Medium body, decent carbonation.
Overall, I really disliked this beer. It looks, smells, and feels like a solid amber ale, but the sweetness just kills it for me.

On tap at the Full Sail Brewery in Hood River, OR. The colour was, well.... amber. Oh, and there was very little head. The aroma was rather uneventful. Suffices to say that I could detect some malt that was rather musty, but that was about it! On the palate, again, nothing exceptionally good, nor remotely good. Rather blah and largely unremarkable!

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.]

Appearance - Brown with a hint of red.
Smell - Not much of an aroma at all. Slight hint of hops in the aroma.
Taste - Kind of like the arome there is not much of a tatse at all. What is there is a very mild, non-descript taste with a hint of hops. Nothing special.
Mouthfeel - Smooth.
Drinkability - Because there is not too much taste this is very drinkable. This could easily be a session beer.

This is the sort of amber ale that gives amber ales a bad name.
It pours a murky caramel color. There’s a slight caramel malt aroma. The flavor is dominated by a caramel-malt profile that veers overly sweet. This beer comes off as cloying and syrupy. Not one I expect to have again.

Full Sail Amber pours a dark amber with a fizzy little head.
within moments, it's totally flat.
smell is dominated by husky, sour grains.
taste isn't as offensive as the smell. slightly fruity, with a grainy sourness. a slight floral hop note. lacking in much flavor, and nothing to get excited about.
mouthfeel ok, if a little on the flat side.
drinkability ok i guess. it's a pretty easy to drink beer.

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic, Full Sail Amber is a dark brownish orange with a medium sized off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Served at fridge temp.
Smell is on the robust side, bread and leafy hops.
Taste is grainy cereals, bread, a little sour, a touch of alcohol and slightly bitter, wet grass finish. I've never been a big fan of the rough assertion of this particular amber...
Mouthfeel is pretty full bodied and a bit slick.
Drinkability is on the lower side, this is one of my least favorite Full Sails, grainy and grassy, and just not something I enjoy or what I look for in an amber.
