This beer does not appear bottle conditioned, but is rather cloudy in my glass. Since this is Rogue, after all, I expect some hop haze.
Aroma is a nice blend of floral hops and rich malt with some hints of dark crystal or munich.
Those dark malts show up really well in the flavor, lending a sweet roundness but still finishing fairly dry. There is a slight alcohol burn, but not enough to detract - just enough to add that layer of complexity.
This is a very nice beer that makes me want to head to the fridge for another!

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.
