Full Sail Brewing Co Amber Ale
What the brewers say
Malty sweet, reddish-amber hue, medium-bodied with a spicy, floral hop finish.
What our panel thought
Aroma of caramel and biscuit with stone-fruit esters; hop bouquet of sweet citrus, pine, and tropical fruit; savory note. Caramel and biscuit sweetness hit early, balanced by a citrus-resin hop punch, followed by lightly bitter, mouth-coating finish. One-dimensional malt. Counter-punching sweet and bitter aspects work well.
What our editors thought
Vaguely orange and woodsy nose with a campfire-like note. The sip is thin but sweet, with a sharp caramel-citrus note that lingers. Only mild bitterness. Accessibility at the expense of interest.
