3.05/5 rDev -20.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Appearance: small carbonation, 1/2 inch head, clear, mahogany
Smell: toasted malt and caramel--fairly weak for a smell
Taste: caramel, toasted malt, tea, and small hops towards the end
Mouthfeel: smooth, medium body, lightly sweet, with a slightly bitter aftertaste, medium carbonation
Drinkability: I generally like Rogue, but this is not as complex an amber as I am used to. It just did not leave that big an impression. In the future, I will pass on this for the price.
Serving type: bottle

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.
