Oh say can you see, by the beer I just poured...okay, I am not going to do a song. This is a pretty beer though, with a nice thick head, lacing nicely along the glass with each sip. The aroma gives off a sweet caramel on top of the roasted malt, similar to coffee in smell. The sweet maltiness takes on your tastebuds with the caramel flavors coming through noticeably. The hops make their presence known at the end of each sip. The flavor is a little too sweet, I would like a bit more hop bite. The mouthfeel was a little thin for me, but overall another good beer from Rogue.

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.
