this beer pours beautifully! great dark amber color with nice, thick amber (almost orange) head. the lacing was long lasting as well. im not that big a fan of ambers, but of the ones ive had lately, this ranks pretty high. bitter going down, bitter aftertaste, but the aftertaste goes away pretty quickly. i rated it low on drinkability just because i am not too much of a fan of the hoppy beers. but for what this one is, i would say its one of the best around.

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.
