Had a pint of this at my local pub, the Cock & Bull.
It's one of Rogue's original brews, though its name has changed.
It's a nice dark brown, but still allows plenty of light through. As with all of Rogue's other brews, this one has a nice hop aroma, but nothing as strong as some of their other beers.
The taste is good: nice malt flavor balanced by hopy bitterness and nice hop aroma.
You can think of this as Rogue's baseline beer. While many other of their brews are better, American Amber Ale is still better than most other beers out there.

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.
