Full Sail

Amber Ale

Malty Sweet, Reddish Amber Hue & a Spicy Floral Hop Finish


Anyone remember the grocery store cooler back before it turned into a kaleidoscopic fantasy world of beer options? You pretty much had two choices: Regular or Light. In 1989, when we brewed our first batch of Full Sail Amber, not only was it the first Amber ale here in Beervana (aka Oregon) -- it was the first craft beer to go into a bottle. And two things became immediately apparent. It wasn’t Regular and it sure as heck wasn’t Light. Our Amber is a sweet, malty, medium-bodied ale with a spicy, floral hop finish. It’s brewed with 2-row Pale, Crystal and Chocolate malts. And we hop it with Mt. Hoods and Cascades. We’re as proud of it today as we were back in ’89. Over the years our flagship Amber has earned many awards and accolades including over 20 gold medals and was named "World's Best Dark Beer" at the World Beer Awards. Not that we’re keeping track or anything. 

Amber is available in 6-packs, 12-packs, and on draft.  It's also available in our Full Sail Trophy Case variety pack. It's half rack of liquid gold! ABV 6% IBU 31
