May 16th, 2012 - A good amber is an amber that shines in a dull, brown and monotonous crowd. The amber is the safe style and the go-to 6-pack that lets a party hosted appeal just a little bit to all palates, rather than exceeding expectations for just a few drinkers. But Full Sailís LTD Series Lager Recipe Number 5 is a cut above the mundane ambers that crowd the refrigerated section of my local grocery stores. Itís an experimental recipe - whatever tinkering they conducted yielded a wonderful new take on the traditional amber; itís a beer that engages the palate, rather than just slaking some vague thirst for beer. Dark chocolate brown in color, the depth and murkiness suggests that this brew might be thick with something - flavor, palate, gravity, itís as yet unknown. Exploring the aroma, I find brown sugar and a heavy malta aroma, with the scent of fresh grass and sod. A dribble of honey appears in the aroma too, suggesting this is going to be a very sweet beer on the tongue. My suspicious are confirmed on the first sip. Lots of that rich maltiness comes to play on the palate, complemented by a mound of brown sugar, a breakfast oatmeal sweetness, a ribbon of caramel, and some glazed peaches and apricots., I overuse this word, but it fits so well here: toothsome. This is a sweet, delicious deep beer that has considerably improved the reputation and lot of ambers everywhere.

Clear amber with brown overtones and a creamy off white head. Hardly any distinct aroma - perhaps a little graininess. Flavor is nutty with a little marzipan and caramel. Hopped just enough to keep the finish relatively dry. Nice beer but not great.

Bottle. Poured clear dark golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted and produced good to good lacing. Moderate balance aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Moderate balanced flavor with medium balanced finish of moderate duration. The beer goes well with spicy soup.

I always find Full Sail to be a good value even if they arenít the best in their style. I think Iíve probably had three sixers if this already since itís only $6. Amber in colo of course with a smell like lager, sort of earthy too. Taste is decent, a little bready and easily distinguished as a Full Sail beer, maybe itís the malt? Overall, an easy sipper and a good value. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-21-2011 00:36:08
