Funny that the name of this beer threw me off; the review between this on-tap, and the American Amber in the bottle are such different beasts.
The nose of Rogue's Sea Otter Ale is full of rich biscuity grain. Plenty of malt sweetness floats above the sticky head; the Earthy grasp of English hops enveloping the fruity West-Coast hop character. In my imperial pint I am reminded of the warm viney yeast profile of Fuller's.
The caramel-coated mouthfeel and lack of any detectable alcohol presence make this one wickedly drinkable beer. With any Rogue beer that would surely be a $e$$ion.
Sitting atop the Rogue brewery quaffing this, I couldn't help but feeling hints of the sea within the glass.

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.
