Picked up a bottle of this today at my local "Whole Paycheck (Foods)". I poured it into a pub glass. It had a very nice foamy head with some staying power. The appearance was dark colored. I could definitely taste the hops in this one. Full Sail Amber is an very good beer and Id love to have it again.

I remember Full Sail Amber being a classic example of American Amber Ale that I enjoyed several years ago and so I picked up a six pack for a refresher.
Appearance: crystal clear dark amber color with thin cream-colored head made up of tiny bubbles. Moderate carbonation and lacing.
Smell: Malt-forward and dark crystal-sweet
Taste: The same crystal-sweet quality hits first, and then is balanced by a relatively classic hop dryness. For a Northwest Ale, the hopping is not that bitter, but rather crisp and noble-like. I really like its balance.
Mouthfeel: Dry, soft, medium body that resonates of dark crystal malts without being cloying. A slight alcohol warmth for its 6% ABV kicks in about a third of the way through.
Overall: Still a classic after all these years – a fine early-autumn beer for a Northeasterner like me
