I'm usually not a huge fan of Ambers. I don't turn them down when offered, but most of the time the mixture of nuttiness and bitterness aren't my favorite. But when an Amber takes on more malty tones, like this offering from Abita, I find myself gulping it down.
It still has a great medium body a bit of nuttiness, but overall flavors are dominated by smooth matls from start to finish. So maybe this isn't a classic Amber, but I like it.
