Most of Rogue's offerings are without a doubt worthwhile; heck, they make some of the best out there. However, once in a while they miss and I think this is what you have here. Yes, this is without a doubt an amber; it pours a nearly picture-perfect amber color. But that's the best thing going for it. Nice aroma, slight hops and maybe a touch of caramel. Good flavor, but nothing that would make me want to buy it again. Not a disappointment, but didn't come close to my very high expectations for a Rogue Amber.

3.7/5 rDev -3.6%

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.
