3.55/5 rDev -7.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Pours a cloudy caramel amber with a light tan head. The color reminds me slightly of syrup. There is also a light nice carbonation
Smell: Smells heavy with carmely malts and bready wafting.
Taste: Tastes very bready like the smell with some nice malty bits, and a bitter tongue tingling on the aftertaste. The sweat caramel maltiness is also there in the front taste and in some of the initial aftertaste. The hops are only really present in after taste, but they run a strong back bite.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and thickly watery with a good back bite from the bitters. The tingle is harsh on the tongue when it is left to sit.
Overall: This is a nice bready ale with some cool malts and an interesting back bite. It includes all of the essentials of a beer; yeast, hops, malts. Yet it still only seems like only a mildly good beer in the end. Not amazing, but a good drink.

3.7/5 rDev -3.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
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.
Serving type: can
