i still enjoy a good amber, and this is exactly that, even though this is a style that seems to be fading as flagships go away and slowly die, and gateway craft has turned into fruited blondes or sours instead of red ales. this is classic to me, a relic in a way, but a delicious take on a style that usually bores me. its clear and copper to brick red, shiny and heady, looks awesome in the glass. the aroma and flavor feature a sweet and nutty malt complexion, i get toasted almonds, toffee, and brown sugar, but also a hearty baked breadiness that keeps it from being too sugary. the yeast has just a hint of english character which is a nice twist, still really clean, and the finish has a neat mineral thing happening, maybe from the water, that makes this a little more crisp than a lot of amber ales are, light copper and then dry. nice pleasant sweet richness all the way through this, natural and from the grain, balanced by just enough of a bittering hop there that comes on late, and with nice carbonation to keep it moving along and drinkable, not too much body either. not a style of beer that often moves me, but this is ahead of the field. really well done, simplistic and highly refined brew! my first from these guys.

Not a strong amber/red ale. Taste seemed a little toned down compared to other amber ales.

Got this at Pluckers in Austin, served in a glass. Dark(ish) red color. Great balance of hops, malts, and spices. Smooth finish. Enjoyable beer - great with wings.

Bought in six pack in Texas and drunk on the beach in Florida. A little lite on the mouthfeel but overall a very enjoyable amber ale. A good balance of hops and malts and the label ain’t bad either.
