I had this beer while tearing apart a large broiled chicken with my cats looking on in envy (for a short while) this evening. I poured the ale into my tall pint glass which finished off with a healthy head that crowned the ruby red ale. Thousands of little bubbles protruded from the bottom to the top like champagne does.
My first smell of the amber ale reminded me of good drought beer that I had tasted many times before, though I could only surmise that Sam Adams Lager was somewhat similar. The first taste came alive with a bitter cream that reminded me of Columbian coffee with a dash of half and half. The beer had a good body and the multi textured taste just kept me interested all the way to the bottom.

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.
