COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Special beer created by brewmaster. On tap only at Full Sail Pilsner Room. So what’s the story on Andy’s Ambrosia Red? In Greek mythology ambrosia was considered the drink of the gods. Rightfully so that brewer Andy Cummings has crafted this heavenly red ale; its namesake also means “delightful liquid”. This medium-bodied, dry-hopped red ale was brewed with a variety of specialty malts (Crystal, Munich, Honey and Carafa) with a pronounced hop flavor and an emphasis on the aroma from the dry Brewer’s Gold hops.

Living up to Full Sail’s reputation as “brewers of godlike nectar,” Andy notes that his inspiration was to brew something for any beer lover to enjoy midst the summer’s hellacious heat. “It’s generously hopped, but the alcohol is on the lighter side, making it easy to drink more than just one… and perhaps experience a bit of that immortality.” ABV 4.9% IBU 53.

On tap at the brewery. Pretty red pour with a small white head and minimal lacing. Aroma was a nice mixture of citrus and pine hops with some caramel malt. The flavor was moderate citrus and pine hops with a tasty mixture of that caramel. Pretty darn good in a style I’m not usually a huge fan of.

4oz sample at Full Sail Hood River - Aroma of crystal malts and mellow pine resin hops. Flavor matches. Palate is clean and thin. Overall this is a good amber, but nothing special.

From the brewery in Hood River, Oregon this draft pour came in the pint glass a beautiful rich red color with not much head. Swirling it raised a little white form. Lots of lacing as the level settled with my assistance. The nose is of citrus hops. Very smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is of caramel malts and way better than most ambers and there is some delightful bitterness. Finish is long and bitter as well .This is a very good amber, which I consider a difficult to make style.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - AUG 10, 2009
On Tap at Pilsner room. Poured red with medium white head, much lacing. Hoppy citrusy aroma, but not so much as an IPA. Hoppy refreshing flavour, with a malt backbone. Lasting bitter finish.
