3.96/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 22 oz brown silk screen bottle into a .5 l cylinder glass.

Appearance : Pours three finger thick, tight head of off white color that slowly settles into persisting quarter thick layer. Deep amber brown in color with hazy not transparent appearance. Decent lacing on the glass. Light carbonation, almost looks a brown ale, but tastes an american red / amber ale.

Aroma: Caramel, bready, malt forward with delayed tones of hops. Earthy sweet aroma. Good winter earthiness.

Taste: Taste is masculine bitter not sweet. Little sweetness felt from the malts, which dominate the hops. It's a nice battle between the two: Malt major, hops minor. Citrus, dry finish. Easy drinking, a good winter beer due to the masculine bitterness, good with stews, was great with fish, shrimp, mashed potatoes this evening.

Mouth feel : Slightly light to medium bodied feel with moderate carbonation with slight hop derived astringency. Dry bitter finish.

I'd definitely try another. i like the smokey nature of the malt say compared with an Ellies Brown Ale from Avery. I'd call this a winter beer, and a brown amber american ale.

I am a fan of American Pale Ale / American Amber so this is one I would continue to compare with others. Well crafted and original.

I've enjoyed this often, and now it comes in cans. Great Amber Ale.

3.7/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

I absolutely love the color of this amber with its bright brassy highlights and sturdy hue. It loses points, though, with an unimpressive head of this thin fleeting fizz and a ton of clinging carbonation bubbles.

The nose is malty, nutty, maybe pecans and a bit of grain. There's hints of roast and a bit of tea leaf.

The flavors are more roasted, more nutty, and filled with pecans. The roasted flavor is dry and the malts are filled with barley, tea leaf and grain.

The feel is exceptionally dry but also thin and watery.

This is a good example of the style with all the profile pieces I want in an Amber. My only regret, and it's small, is that the thin watery feel doesn't allow the flavor to truly blossom.
