Our take on an American amber ale. Complex malt bill delivers notes of dark raisin, chocolate and biscuit. Copious additions of American hops yield notes of pine and citrus.

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a standard pint.

A: Amber hue. Pours a 2 finger, fluffy, frothy, brown-white head. Slow, dry, cratering. Plenty of lacing.

S: Roasted malt, pecans, molasses.

T: Bitter pecan shells, roasted coffee malt, and a bitter hop.

M: Hearty and hoppy. Bitterness hangs on the palate throughout.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is really nice. Great head and some sound lacing. Nose is roasty and nutty. Bitter and roasty with a nice hop. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

Thanks to GFunk720 for including this as an extra in our recent trade

Poured from 1 pint .9 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass

Pours a cloudy dark red amber with a two and a half finger beige head. Beautiful lacing. The aroma is a mixture of plum and black cherries, accented by grapefruit and citrus and a bit of grass and pine. Initially, the the flavor of dark fruit highlighted with grapefruit and citrus dominates transitioning to a bit of sweet malt and then finishes with piney hop bitterness. Considerable body supplied by a fairly hefty malt backbone for an American Amber/Red Ale, well carbonated and slick mouthfeel. A very enjoyable brew and very much on the same plane as Nugget Nectar.
