22 ounce bottle. Rogue American Amber Ale pours out a hazy amber color with a small head. Burnt caramel aroma along with piney hops. Sweet caramel flavor. Lots of fruitiness comes in at the middle, including grapefruit and apricot. The hops are both flavorful and bitter. This is quite hoppy for an amber ale. The finish is a bit spicy. Mouthfeel is medium and a little rough. Pretty good drinkability. This doesn't rank among the best Rogue beers, but it's still solid.

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.
