A: Very cloudy orange, quick dissipating white head.

S: Rich, sweet, pumpkin, dark

T: Immediate pumpkin notes, sweet tang, middle-sour taste, bit of a spicy aftertaste. Definite cinnamon and a slight hint of citrus

M: Smooth and thick. Not syrupy, not oily, perfectly carbonated. Exactly how an amber lager should go down. Incredible

This is a delicious beer. It's drinkable and complex. It's tasty and savory. It goes well with a hearty meal or a pipe and a good book. Great work, Philadelphia Brewing Co. I'd buy it again any time.

12oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A - Dark clear amber brown with a small bubbly white head.

S - Mostly caramel malt with a slight hint of fruitiness.

T - Caramel malt and rye up front, followed by floral and fruity hops. There is a light spiciness in the finish. The hops really balance out the sweet malt.

M - Medium bodied, crisp, medium-low carbonation.

O - Decent amber ale (or ruby farmhouse ale as the brewer calls it). It's hard to classify this beer, as it does have a distinct flavor. Some will enjoy it, others may not. I think it's a balanced sessionable beer that tends to get better as you acquire a taste for it.

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

A: The beer pours a deep, cloudy red with almost no head.

S: Sweet smelling, almost banana like in my opinion. Mostly malt but the fruitiness is there.

T: Interesting. I was immediately hit with the malt, but there is a subtle bitterness to the finish.

M: Well carbonated with a dry finish.

O: This is a good beer. Not mind blowing in anyway but certainly something I will come back to sometime in the summer.

Red/amber in color with a cloudy sit in appearance. Smell is very heavy on the malts, very little hop aroma. Mouthfeel is that of an unfiltered brew with some hops. Taste is not anything to to write home about, but not offensive. Overall this beer is drinkable but not one we will go out of our way to get. But worth a try.
