650 ML patriotic red, white, and blue Rogue bottle copped for about $5.00 from Total Wine and More in Union... Pours a dark-brown, mahogany and copper appearance with a foamy and frothy head that soon receded... smell was laden with hops, caramel, and vanilla... taste strongly complemented the aroma... flavor was very good for an American Amber, albeit a little less intense than some stronger ABV samples... For example, compared to Southern Tier's Big Red, this sample paled in comparison with regards to flavor and character... don't get me wrong - this is still an excellent depiction of the style, with the typical Rogue quality very apparent and a strong, crisp, clean, and clear mouthfeel with excellent drinkability due to the relatively modest 5.6% ABV... A good sample... Recommended...

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.
