Amber-brown in color with a dense, foamy head that persisted for the life of the 22 oz bottle. Coffee and malt aromas that carry through to the flavors, which are initially bitter coffee and smoky malt. This was followed by a rather unpleasant metallic aftertaste (that could be quickly washed away with another sip, but nevertheless was unpleasant and distracting). Medium to light in body with good drinkability. It was a good companion to some corned beef, cabbage and soda bread.

3.7/5 rDev -3.6%

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.
