3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark, clear amber with ample off white head. Taste is sweet fruity malts, caramel, super smooth and perfect sweetness. Quite surprised by this one and one of the best non-hoppy ambers I have ever had.

Rich dark color, some hop aroma but it just didnít have that certain flavor to bring me back for more.

This is a beer that has great harmony between the malts and hops. Super smooth on the tongue with lovely cascade hops coming through. Solid amber/red ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint: in Valhalla, New York on 18 Jan 2013.
Pours a good clean amber colour with a thin white topping.
Malts lead the way in both the aroma and taste. Sweet and tasty brew (I like malty, sweet beers), caramel and dark fruit hints hide the alcohol well and I really enjoyed this beer, my last in New York before re-joining my cruise ship after a day wandering around and drinking.

Very smooth, balanced, malty at the start with a caramel like sweetness. Nutty, full, and refreshing. Light hops to the end. A very good amber.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark amber, almost brown. Head dissipated quickly.
Little to no hop aroma. A very slight grape/apple note can be detected.
Well balanced to hop forward. Fruity hop character, black currant, grape, apple. Carmel notes detected. Slight roast, raisin detected.
Overall a decent beer. Well balanced east coast style amber. My palate prefers the "west coast" hop forward style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Fresh Market in Boca Raton, FL. American pint glass. Ours a dark amber with a thin white head. Really has a nice color for an amber. Aroma of bread, some floral notes and malts. The taste is classic American pale ale with notes of malts, light bitter hops, bread, and finishes with just a little floral hops. Mouth is smooth with light carbonation and a slight dry finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Full Sail Amber has a thin-to-medium, off-white head and a slightly bubbly, clear, amber appearance, with a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, fruity, brown-bread malt, and the flavor is of those elements with a pleasant hop bitterness at the end of the sip. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Full Sail Amber finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and easy drinking. Overall, this is a most excellent beer. RJT
