22oz. bomber poured into a sample tasting cup. It pours a clear deep red-amber color with almost 2 fingers of head. There are nice lace rings left on the glass. The smell is sweet caramel malts and a good hops aroma. The taste brings that caramel back in, with a hint of toffee and molasses. The mouthfeel is good and solid. The drinkability is wonderful too. A great all-around brew!

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.
