Pours a transparent amber, mahogany color with nice lacing. A rich, deep aroma of fresh hops, floral notes, and cloves sifts through the air. Smooth, thick-bodied brew with a deep malty character that starts out with slight caramel sweetness, earth, spice, toffee and finishes hop dry. A great balance between the two creates a personality that makes this beer stand ahead of the rest. This should be the American staple beer: this is a beer that deserves to be guerilla advertised between Geico cavemen and Chevy truck commercials. A true American classic and the new working man's (women's) beer of choice.

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.
