Review: Full Sail Amber

Full Sail Amber from Full Sail Brewing Company
Rating: A-

Quite fond of this style, let's see what Full Sail has done with it.

Appearance: Red tinted honey in color, one-finger head that fades fairly quickly, but leaves lots of lacing.

Smell: Appealing aromas of toast, ale fruitiness, and a very round hops notes. Really quite fruity.

Taste: Reminiscent of English cask ale in its fruitiness and balance. A little caramel, floral hops, and a crisp finish. Hints of toast toward the end, but not as much as I prefer in the style.

Mouthfeel: Creamy mouthfeel, light-medium body, appropriately carbonated.

Drinkability: Who says American beers can be balanced and sessionable? 5.5% abv and smooth, very drinkable.
