Pours a translucent amber/brown with a big tan head. Smells of citrus hops and carmelized malt. Taste is malty, juicy pear flavors, with a hint of toasted malt. There is a very nice raw earthy hop flavor. Reminds me somewhat of a British Bitter. Bitterness levels match up perfectly with the malt balancing things out. Mouthfeel is good, carbonation is slightly high and prickly. Very drinkable, this would make a good session ale if it had a little less alcohol.

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.

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on June 26, 2014.
It pours a deep chestnut brown with a fluffy tan head that lingers.
The aroma is malty and sweet. There are notes of caramel, toffee, and molasses with low to no hop notes.
The body is medium and creamy.
The taste is incredibly malt forward with the sweetness of sugar, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, raisins, and molasses. The hop bitterness is mild but more noticeable in the taste than on the nose.
