Rich amber, decent initial head, lacing doesn't really last
Smells malty, pine hop note vaguely there, not a ton of smell.
Sweet malt highlighted by major blast of grapefruit hops. Luscious. Surprisingly flavorful.
Mouthfeel rich and bubbly carbonation.
Very flavorful, quite drinkable. Took me awhile to get to this one because I thought it wouldn't be very interesting. I was wrong.

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.
