Brewsday Tuesday: Full Sail Amber

July 31, 2012

I have never had anything by Full Sail Brewing Company and decided to change that when I picked up a Full Sail Amber from Market Square Liquors.  Let’s see what their 47 employees came up with. Cheers!

Name: Full Sail Amber

Brewed by: Full Sail Brewing Company

Location: Hood River, Oregon

Style/ABV: American Amber / Red Ale / 5.5%

Appearance: Pours a medium amber with a light khaki three finger head.

Smell: Bready malts with slight citrus notes from the hops.

Taste: Bready sweet malts with caramel notes at the beginning that transition to a mild citrus hop finish which lingers.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall: This is a very drinkable amber/red ale.  It has a hearty feel without being heavy which I really enjoyed.  This beer would go really well with a hamburger.

Final Grade: A

    Hmm, may have to try this; sounds good and I love beer with burgers.

      It was very balanced. I usually like IPAs with a burger, but I think this one would be good too. Let me know what you think!
