A - dark amber with a huge, soft, off white head that has great retention
S - caramel, bread, some faint citrusy aromas
T - baked apple, caramel, citrus
M - medium bodied, well carbonated
This is a decent amber but simple. The apple and sweet caramel notes are overdone. The hop character is citrusy and blend with the sweetness rather than offer balance. Ultimately, there is nothing here to seperate this one from the pack. I'll pass in the future.

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.
