This rating is for the style.
Clear amber and nice maltiness with a subtle kiss of spicy hops. Lager lovers loves this.
Glad to see this on shelves again... I love the LTD beers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Earthy, grass aroma with light notes of caramel. Pours caramel colored with a thin white head and no lacing. Starts with earthy and grassy malt flavors with a light body. Finishes smooth with sweet caramel lingering on the palate after. All right, but nothing to make it standout.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I thought I was looking for something pale, but I tried this instead. What a nice surprise. Firm malt body. Grassy hop flavoring, mellowed by persistent carbonation. Copper color matches the caramel aroma. I cannot go back in history, but I now have a rival to Brooklynís interpretation of the Vienna style.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber, clear, good off-white, almost light brown head with good carbonation. Taste is a good maltiness - sort of a slightly toasted bread with a touch of sweetness. It very much reminds me of a thicker, fuller, Negra Modelo. I really like this style of beer.
