Orange to light copper body that supported almost no head. The "Amber" color was weak as was the foam.

The nose is grainy, with a burst of barley, some nut, kiln and malt.

Very malty, which I was begging for, with a reasonably solid backbone. Barley grain, Graham cracker, nuts, pecans, a tinge of roast and some of that kilned grain this style is known for.

The feel is quite thin, very crisp and a little cheap.

Overall, this delivers a nice bang for the buck, as flavor goes but the periphery is a bit suspect.
