Pours a dark, hazy amber color full of bubbles with a fluffy tan-white head head that hangs around for a while and leaves thin, decent looking lacing.
Honeyish malt smells, caramel and toffee with a bittering hop aroma.
There's a balancing act from the beginning between malt and hops - the malts have a slightly toasty, burnt caramel flavor, and the hops are more bitter than floral. I think the hops in this could use a bit of tweaking, personally, and almost consider this more of a brown ale than an amber - if it were called American Brown I think it would score a bit higher.
Creamy, medium body; This has a lot of teeny bubbles, so it's got a slightly frothy feel.
Decently tasty, but there are some things that I can't quite describe that hold this back from being better. Might be a better beer if paired with some food.

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.

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on June 26, 2014.
It pours a deep chestnut brown with a fluffy tan head that lingers.
The aroma is malty and sweet. There are notes of caramel, toffee, and molasses with low to no hop notes.
The body is medium and creamy.
The taste is incredibly malt forward with the sweetness of sugar, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, raisins, and molasses. The hop bitterness is mild but more noticeable in the taste than on the nose.
