Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a hazy amber with a creamy one finger head. Leaves rich sticky lacing.
Scent is mostly of sweet malts and citrus hops.
Bigger than expected hop taste up front, which is quickly mellowed out by the malty backbone, and is then followed by a dry finish with some lasting hop bitterness.
Feel is smooth and creamy. Carbonation seems just right. Very sessionable.

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.
