Pours a red-brown with very small head. There's a bright aroma of grapefruity, Cascade-y hops. The beer contains a large malt sweetness, with lots of caramel, accompanied by some light graininess and brown sugar. The hops are clear, balanced, with a gentle crispness. Perhaps an element of tea. The mouthfeel is smooth, nearly flat. This is a fine beer, and amongst Rogue's strong offerings it's a good sessional, quite close to a dark ESB. An appropriate spring-weather beer when all is damp but the warmth is creeping in.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
