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.

A classic amber ale, always a good choice and approachable by all but the most committed AAL fans. This one pours a maple syrup dark amber. Attractive. Light head. Aroma of grain, yeast, nothing special. A mainline amber ale taste: slightly sweet, malts and a trace of bitterness. Solidly in the middle of the pack. There's a few that are better, but plenty more worse.

Poured a deep amber leaning toward brown with a creamy white head. Aromas were subtle but the chocolately malts did shine through. Signs of carmelized prunes or raisins were present in the aroma. Upon tasting the malts take the front seat in this ride with a spicy bitter hop finish. Delicious beer to serve along side some rich bbq plates.

Great malt body. Good mouthfeel. Excellent hopping, not overly bittered but just right to balance the smooth malt. Refreshing. Definitely recommend.

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.
