On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is relatively clear reddish amber in color. It poured with a small white head that died down and left a patch of bubbles on the surface and a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: The smell is quite complex and has aromas of apples intermixed with spices.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of fruity yeast and spices. The initial taste has some sweetness while the spiciness becomes stronger in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. There is a bit of dryness in the finish.
O: The beer is quite easy to drink and has an interesting mix of flavors.

A: Amberish colored pour with a nice off white head. Okay retention and some spotty lace.

S: Aroma of summer fruit, spice, caramel, and toffee. Sweet and spicy.

T: Light apple and pear leads into some mild spice. There are nice notes of toffee and a honey like sweetness as well. It is a bit yeasty with a touch of citrus in the finish.

M: On the lighter side of medium, nice carbonation.

D: Not too bad.

On draft at Bailey's, Portland, Oregon.

Poured a murky deep copper hue with a two finger creamy white head. There was very good retention and very good lacing.

The smell featured ripe apple, yeast esters and candy sugar.

The taste consisted of ripe apples and pears, honey, caramel and spicy esters.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style and surprisingly dry.

Overall a good example of the style.

On tap at Max's the other night.

The beer pours and amber copper color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is pretty malty and sweet, and while attractive, is a bit one dimensional. Flavors replicate the nose to some extent, and this beer tastes pretty rich and sweet. However, it has some nice flavors of cherry, chocolate and caramel, as well as a touch of brown sugar. The beer has a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a long soft finish. Alcohol is somewhat noticeable, but over all this beer is pretty drinkable (consdering the alcohol and sweetness). Not bad at all.
