Pours a deep amber with bronze undertones out of a 12oz bottle. A creamy two-finger head with good retention and substantial lacing.
Smells of citrus, grain, and spiced hops. The flavor consists of grapfruit and citrus, spice, sweet malt, syrup, and semi-bitter hops. The mouth feel is light and creamy, and the finishes leaves some syrup on the lips.
Very drinkable. A solid, balanced ale overall.

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.
