Not the most dazzling appearance, but nothing wrong. Smells wonderful, like floral hops and buttery cookies. The taste is a feat of balance and moderation as the style calls for, yes, but it is not shorting us on moments of amazing: a brightness and zip on the tongue which tantalizes, but then a smooth finish that tastes like toffee hunks in a cookie.
Deliciously balanced beer, without a lack of excitement.

3.7/5 rDev -3.6%

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.
