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

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.

The weekend is here and I’ve purchased a six pack of Full Sail Amber beer. The appearance is dark-reddish with a Tan Lace. A quick sniff detects an aromatic aroma of fruity citrus hops mixed with toasted malts. The flavor is a medium-light fruity body, mild bitterness, caramel smooth with moderate carbonation. All told, this Amber Ale is ridiculously tasty and has everything that I love about American craft breweries.

Light Brown Amber Color.
Smell's like, Orange, Hops and Malt all in one. Very good smooth smell.
Full flavor, very pleasent flavor, not a typical Ale. Malty with a slight tint of Hops.
Light carbonation.
This is what an Amber Ale should taste like. Full Sail did a real good job.

Poured in a belgian chalice, not too cold.

Pours very dark, like deep dark cairngorm. Very satisfying head. Smells like bread, fruit and a little "belgian".
Full initial mouthfeel, velvety and charming carbonation, thinner later. Roasted malts hit first, caramel, then balanced hops and acidity.

I'm not a fan of Amber's right now (going through a Bitter's / Pale Ales phase). This one's good for the style though, and for the season! Ho, ho, ho!
