A: Pours a relatively clear dark golden yellow to amber in color with some moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy off-white head that reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of malts with hints of caramel and toffee with some very light notes of earthy hops.

T: Moderate flavors of caramel, bready, and toasted malts with light hints of caramel and toffee sweetness. There is a light amount of earthy hop flavors but almost no bitterness is discernable.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Relatively smooth.

O: Easy to drink and enjoyable - sessionable due to the low ABV and smooth mouthfeel.

Bright Orange color beer, not much of a head.
Mild aroma.
Sweet and malty with almost no bitterness.
Very smooth. Creamy mouthfeel.
Extremely easy to drink.

This is a beer that just anyone would like. It is mild, but has good flavor.
Worth repeating how easy drinking this beer is.

An interesting take on an Oktoberfest. A little different because this one is an Ale.
Worth checking out!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is clear yellowish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high dense off white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and lots of rings of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are very light aromas of malts in the nose.
T: The taste is malty like the smell but has slightly stronger flavors of bready, caramel and toasted malts along with some hints of earthy hops. There is a slight amount of malty sweetness; no bitterness is detectable.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Even though this beer is quite malty, it is still easy to drink and has nice smoothness in the mouthfeel.

This is my first fall beer purchase of 2012 and I'm happy with my choice. Great looking clear beer that's golden straw in color with a bit of lacing but not a huge head hanging around. The aroma reminds me of this beer style and is consistent with other brewers offerings... malty and yeasty, nothing new here. The taste is similar to the smell although there is a bit more depth with a nice malt flavor up front, a bit of hops that balances without being overpowering and a good dose of the yeast profile. The mouthfeel leaves some residual sweetness behind but does not make your mouth stick together. This is a nice addition to the flooded market of fall beers that are entering your local beer shop this time of year... happy fall!
