Poured into a pilsner glass.
Appearance: Pours a pleasant, deep amber color. The head upon the initial pour is thick, and the retention is good. Lacing lines the edges of my glass. This is a good looking beer.
Smell: The smell is sweet and strong. There are scents of honey and caramel, intermixed with a faint touch of grains. The beer's smell gives a good indicator of the taste. I enjoy this smell a lot.
Taste: Starts out with a bitter punch, which is balanced out with a slight caramel-like sweetness. There is a slight after-taste, but it is pleasant. The taste is strong and bold. Although not an overly complex character, it is still quite enjoyable.
Mouthfeel: Full-bodied and carbonated, this beer makes its prescense known. I feel that the carbonation may be a little high. The actual density of the beer is hearty, and I like my beer thick, so this is a plus.
Drinkability: The taste of these is strong, so I can't image drinking more than 3 in a night. These are meant to be enjoyed, not slammed. I can see myself reaching for more after the initial one is finished.
These were good enough that I would have another one in the future. Good stuff from the Rogue Ales Brewery.

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.
