Dark cinnamon color with a thick, light beige head. Decent retention. The last amber ale I had was Santa's Private Reserve, around Christmas time, so it's been a while. But after taking one whiff, I recognize and remember the style well. Such an amazing balance! It's hard to say what exactly I smell first. The crisp citrus hoppiness and the smooth caramel maltiness blend beautifully.
The taste is a little more bitter than I expected, but overall it matches the smell in its great balance. I would describe this beer as having a unique but totally accessible flavor that even the uninitiated should appreciate. Nice, medium mouthfeel, highly drinkable. I haven't had a bad Rogue beer! I'll definitely be getting this again.
