thanks to scott for tossing this one my way.

a - brew poured a watery brown with a thin bubbly beige head that was gone in a moment. lacing was spotty and streaky. swirling the glass brought things back to life.

s - nice chestnut brown sugar nutmeg malts. good sweetness. some grape and caramel.

t - flavor is not as nice as the nose promised. toasted malts with somewhat of a lagery pilsner shine. some fall seasoning in the background.

m - a bit harsh with a macro lagery vibe.

o - love me a good brown ale, and as such i can get picky on the style and this one didn't do it for me. the autumn seasoning on the tail end was a nice touch, but overall this one is a bit average for me.

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

A: The beer is clear and very dark brownish amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that quickly died down and left some bubbles on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of Munich malts in the nose. Some hints of caramel and molasses become noticeable as the beer warms up.
T: Like the smell, the taste is quite malty and has flavors of caramel and nutty malts along with a light amount of sweetness. No hop bitterness is detectable.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is nice and malty but still quite easy to drink with its lighter bodied; however, it tastes like it is a little one dimensional and could use a little hops.

12 oz bottle into a Hoffman House chalice.

A - Very deep red-brown with a moderate off-white head that falls into a thin crown. Cloudy.

S - Caramel and light raisin, faint tea-like hop aroma.

T - Layered caramel malts with a modest plum/raisin mid and subtle american ale esters (peach, apricot). Finish is slightly sweet. Slightly warming from the alcohol as the beer rises in temperature. No major hop flavors. Bitterness is soft and balancing.

M - Medium body with light carbonation.

O - An excellent brown ale in its own right.

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

A: A medium brown with ruby highlights and excellent clarity. The creamy light tan head settles to a thin film and a ring after a minute.

S: The driving aromas are of a malty sweetness with hints of chocolate and caramel, a soft alcohol aroma and a light light hops aroma. Light toasted malt aromas increase as it warms. allergies are killing my nose bty; I'll reevaluate this beer in the future.

T: This tastes like caramel cover hops bitterness. The malt sweetness has a somewhat cocoa flavor and some toastiness. There isn't much hops flavor, maybe just a faint citrus, but there is enough hops bitterness to keep the balance moderately bitter. The bitterness lingers pasted the off-dry finish with a light caramel note as well.

M: medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. A slight creaminess and a very light warmth.

O: A very drinkable brown with a firm bitterness and pleasing roast malt character.

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

A: Pours a nice ruby color with a tiny had that recedes quickly

S: A very prominent nuttiness along with cherry, German malts, and some earthy hops. Definitely seems more in-line with English browns than American

T: Nice roasty and toasted malts along with less of the nuttiness and cherry. Hops are earthy and very slightly spicy. Fairly mild. I'm really not getting much of the 'brown' aspect of this beer, except for the nuttiness... more like a strong English mild to me

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth

O: A good beer, but I wouldn't classify it as an American Brown... English brown, English mild, or Old ale all sound better to me.... Regardless, enjoyable and fits the season nicely. Easy to drink, and free of all the spices and pumpkins that you see in a lot of the fall seasonals lately

12oz Bottle from the IGA in Potsdam NY for 2$

Appearance - Dark brown colour with a tiny size fizzy beige coloured head. I can't make out the level of carbonation and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for around 1 minute.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, caramel, dark fruits

Taste & Mouth - There is a very low amount of carbonation and it seems almost flat. I can taste malts, caramel, and chocolate. There is also a bit of dark fruits. It ends with a chocolatey malt aftertaste.

Overall - Perhaps I had a bad bottle, but this beer was basically flat. The taste was fine but not something I expected from a fall seasonal. Not something I'd buy again.

A- pours a dark ruby brown color with a small cream colored head that dissolves quickly leaving just a ring.

S- smells like fall! Munich malts, Forrest floor, Oktoberfest like aromas.

T- Very malty, sweet, a bit of caramel, Buiscuity, some herbal notes, finishes dry.

M- medium-light body, medium carbonation, fizzy and foamy mouthfeel.

O- a solid choice for a fall brew, goes great with the opening weekend of college football!
