Poured out of the bottle -
No date on the bottle
very pretty orange/amber color. Carbonation was a little high and the mouth-feel ends up being thin.
There is a nice nutty flavor, but it is up front and diminishes quickly - the finish is dry . The beer doesn't offer much in the way of character or complexity.

A fairly run of the mill Amber that I got to try in a stellar Thai place in Sedona
