BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Full Sail Brewery & Tasting Room & Pub
Oregon, United States
fullsailbrewing.com

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

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.

An old favorite that I first tried on the west coast in the early 90s. Only recently widely available in the southeast. Fond memories of the first wave of micros- great taste without being bombarded with hops.

12 oz 2017 bottle served in a Fat Cat glass.
Pours with a copper-amber colored body that has excellent clarity and a fine bone-colored head. Good lacing.
Aroma: typical for style with mild grains and hops both evident.
Flavor: mild grains and hops both evident, but a touch more hop forward than average.
Feel: smooth, medium body and medium carbonation.

Deep and clear copper color with a thick thin head with short retention.
Aroma with notes of tea leaves, lemon, spices, mild chocolate and biscuit.
Likewise flavor with notes of ice tea with lemon slice, some toasted malts, tea leaves, orange drops, red berries, mild pine, chocolate, spices and caramels. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Bordering medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Interesting take on an American Amber Ale with chocolate, fruity and ice tea notes. Pleasant and complex, not super exciting.

Had high hopes when I finally found this in my area. Tried it once, and then again after a couple months, and was left disappointed. It's not awful by any means, just a very average beer. Perhaps a bit overly fruity or floral for what I personally prefer in an Amber Ale.

Won't turn it away if someone's offering, but doubtful I'll buy it again.

The appearance is a semi-dark red colored body with a nice light carbonation seen rising, a nice one finger white foamy head that dies within a minute and leaves a spectacular nice looking amount of spider web lacing sticking to the glass. The smell is basically deep dark caramel malts. The taste is mainly sweet through the caramel malts with a nice sweet caramel malty aftertaste and a dry sweet finish. On the palate, it sits about a light to medium probably ranging closer to the lighter side and comes across pretty sessionable. Carbonation is very smooth. Overall, I say this is a pretty good amber/red ale that I would have again.

Pours a clear amber with a great tan bubbly head that soon is reduced to a thin skin but leaves some decent side glass lace.
SMELL: Malts, sweet caramel and some faint citrus hops.
TASTE: A lot of toasted bread malts with some caramel, a nice combo.
Finishes drying with a little sweetness.
I will surely get some more of this Amber. Got to rank this one right up there.

Amber, very tea like, up to the light. Almost no head or lacing. The aroma is a bit floral, cola, bready. The flavor is bready, caramel malt, and I'm not really picking up much else, but the beer is very balanced from sweet to bitter. Lots of carbonation in the feel, which I like, Medium body, and dry.

Having my second pint of this utterly reliable, golden-ticket brew in the sunshine (finally!), with a couple orange slices.

L orange-brown amber, with nigh zero head and subtle bubbles

S malty with mild fruit, orange foremost

Tastes like liquid sunshine, really mild, especially the hops, with a crisp, fruity aftertaste.

Feels, Overall, like one of those beers that is tasty yet it is so simple, harmonious and drinkable, that one can get through a pink in the blink of an eye.
