A good solid amber ale. I am not really a fan of malts, however this beer has a fairly good "maltness" to it. I like more hops though. I guess that you canít really expect that from a mass-produced ale though. All in all a fairly good beer.

An excellent Amber Ale. Full Sail Brewing company has never let me down. The beer had a bold dark amber color and a slightly sweet taste, but not so much that I forgot I was drinking a beer.

dark amber in color. lots of hop spiciness with a fair amount of bitterness - but itís well balanced by sweet malt and carmel flavors. medium body with nice mouthfeel. very good - one of my favorite ambers.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2003 The beer pours a crystal clear deep mahogany color with a mediocre light tan head that is semi-creamy in texture with the lace forming a tight sheet to conceal the glass. Nose is sweet malt, hints of caramel, citrus crisp and clean quite appealing to this old schnozzle with the start sweet and laced with malt, top is light in its feel. Finish is moderate in its carbonation, hops a delectable, aftertaste dry and lingering, another fine session beer from a ďGreat Brewery".

Med brown color. Medium/large head. Slightly roasted malts, lightly hopped. Full flavored, yet mild taste. Malt flavors are subtle and mild. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is malty, very light bitterness.

A decent ale. Would drink again but nothing really stands out about it.

At the brewery... one of the best ambers ever. Lots of malts, hoppy, and great flavor.

Looks more like a brown than an amber. Nice creamy-looking head that leaves nice lace on the glass. Malty, caramely, earthy nose. Notes of coffee, bit of malty sweetness (caramel) in the mouth. Fades to a hoppy bite in the end. Better than I expected. Iíve never tried full sail stuff before and wasnít expecting much for some reason.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2005 Rerate: Slightly malty aroma. Taste is toasted malt, crystal, with only hints of hops and slight metallics. Some interesting earthy tones deep down. Ok stuff, used to be a lot better.
