Appearance : Pours with about one finger thick head of off white color that slowly disappears in to a thin layer. Deep amber in color with clear but not transparent appearance. Decent lacing on the snifter. Few bubbles seen.
Aroma: Caramel, bread like and heavily malt forward with slight tones of hops coming afterwards. Very sweet aroma.
Taste: Taste is slightly more bitter than the nose suggests. No sweetness felt from the malts. After taste is filled with bitterness but not very strong.
Mouth feel : Slightly light to medium bodied feel with moderate carbonation with slight hop derived astringency. Dry bitter finish.
Style Rate : 4
Personal Rate : 3.75
I won't have it again. Good to try but nothing out of ordinary.
Serving type: bottle

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.
