Sometimes you try something for the hell of it and a pleasant surprise emerges. This is one of those beers. Whiffing in with light toasty coffee toffee, this is a solid dark amber, like peering through a glass of really strong tea. I’m then treated to a nutty, toasted, butter, barley taste, without being overwhelmed. There’s just enough hops to finish this of and bring in some balance. This is a good relaxing beer.

Thinner than I would like, with a slight alcohol aftertaste that I’m not so fond of.

I slight alcohol finish to this beer. Also has a pretty orange color and a slight fruity feel.

never a bad time to be drinking a full sail amber. Best on tap.

Rerate: A month later, a second bottle. Wow...maltiness I never detected before. Definitely of the sweet, caramelly variety, a bit tangy. Very interesting amber, particularly for a left-coaster. Maltier still as it warms. Original- 6/05/02: Remarkably similar to Speakeasy’s Prohibition. More than a bit of a dry-hopped aroma, sligh maltiness around the edges. Flavor is similar to the aroma. slightly sweet with fruit (grape?) elements.

One of my favorite session beers, rich falvored amber, great malt character, pleasent hopping, very mild and complemts malts perfectly, a NW classic for good reason!

Good, refreshing. This is nice on a hot summer day. It has a nice bite, and is not too lingering on the palate afterwards. I had this on tap this weekend and was VERY impressed. Very smooth and flavorful. I am bumping my review up a notch.

Speaking of in-laws (see my rating of Snake River Pale), my mother-in-law is a confirmed Miller lite drinker, but out in Jackson, WY, at the Cadillac Grill, Miller products are hard to come by. So I suggested she try this, and kept her company, of course. We were both impressed. Nice balance between forceful florality and nutty malt.

Aroma is sweet with subtle hints of caramel, very pleasant. Color is a robust burnt amber, the head relatively light but with lots of lingering lace. Malt comes through at beginning and finish with well-balanced hoppiness swelling in-between. Carbonation is light-to-moderate. Flavors are all assertive without being overpowering, and again, all elements are finely balanced. There is nothing here that earmarks this brew readily. It is just a good, solid American ale.
