Beer pours a nice dark copper color with a slight amount of white foamy head.
Beer smells very sweet and malty. Very faint hoppy smell, but not too much going on here.
Taste is very malty. Hints of grapefruit hops as well. Not as flavorful as I would have liked.
Mouthfeel was a tad thick and not enough carbonation for my liking.
Serving type: on-tap

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
