12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly clear deep reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready/light roasted malts and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy hop and roast bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/light roasted malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from hop/roast bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.9%. Overall this is great amber ale! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/light roasted malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, clean, and easy to drink. A really delicious offering, and pristine style example.

Took home a growler from the brewpub to have with dinner. Pours a brownish red, a little darker than is typical for the style. Not much of an aroma, but a really nice flavor of well-balanced roasted malt, subtle sweetness in the body, and just a bit of hops on the finish. While this isn't a complex beer, it's an excellent example of the style and pairs well with the barbecue served at the restaurant. Very drinkable without being one dimensional.
