Feature Beer Friday! - Tin Roof Perfect Tin Amber Ale

Alright, time to get local again, and it doesn't get any more local than a beer from Baton Rouge's Tin Roof Brewing.  Well, I guess my homebrew is a little more local, but I'm not going to be featuring myself on Feature Beer Friday!, I'm not quite that vain.
 
The Perfect Tin Amber Ale is one of Tin Roof's flagship and original beers, along with the Voodoo Bengal Pale Ale that I featured not too long ago.  Straight from their website:  "American-style amber ale brewed with a variety of the finest specialty malts available. These malts combine to form a distinct flavor profile with hints of toffee and chocolate. Its mild bitterness never lingers longer than you ask it to. The final product is a malty, medium-bodied, and easy drinking session beer.  You’ll love this malt masterpiece! Pairs well with most grilled or roasted meats.  Also great for chilis, stews, and brining."  Mmmm, now I want to cook some chili.

Reviewers: Eric Ducote (BR Beer Scene), Jay Ducote (BiteandBooze.com), Jeremy Spikes (Whiskeybomb.com) and James Lawson.

Serving: 12 oz. can.

Appearance: Caramel color, clear with a decent head.

Aroma: Caramel flavor as well, malty and pretty standard for the style.  Jay said he could pick up the toffee but not the chocolate as much.  Maybe a little on the hoppy side for the style as well.

Taste: Still a little on the hoppy side, but very pleasant

Mouthfeel: Jeremy thought this would make a great session beer.  I agree, it's very easy to drink.

Overall: A solid easy-drinking local amber ale.
