Pours a nice ruby red hue with a medium lasting off white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, yeast, sweet fruity esters and a bit of toffee and earthy pine hops fill the senses. Taste is sweet caramel malt, yeast and fruity flavors with some good earthy pine hops bitterness. Palalte is a medium body, slightly sticky mouthfeel with good carbonation. Finishes with a combination of caramel malt, yeast some toffee and fruity notes followed by some good earthy piney hops for balance. Overall a very good, enjoyable, and solid all around amber ale, very nice.

3.7/5 rDev -3.6%

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.
