Poured from the 22oz. bomber into a pint glass. Poured a reddish amber color with a high white foam. Good retention and lacing.
Slightly sweet malty smell. Minimal fruit evidence. Bready.
Taste is malty with a very present hop that holds throughout and controls the finish. Modestly caramel tasting. Less carbonated in the mouth - more of a water feel (but not watery or diluted).
A very drinkable amber ale. The 22oz container is an added bonus. 2 of these would not be hard to finish.

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.
