Pours a dark amber color with a thick off white head and leaves respectable lacing on the sides of the glass. The aroma is of sweet malts and hops, and has hints of citrus as well. The flavor was fairly smooth and the sweet malts stuck out most in the flavor. Mouthfeel is right on. Drinkability is good too. Great amber ale.

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.
