look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A-Decent looking beer that pours a slightly-hazy darker-amber w/thick beige head, lots of carbonation at first, and average retention. Ingredients listed on the label include "water, malted barley, hops, spices and yeast." Best by May 4th, 2011.
S-Rich malty profile, faint fruit esters, apple, cranberry, notes of hops.
T&M-Matches aroma. Roasty malt flavor dominates w/just a touch of sweetness, delicate fruit flavors midway, and finish is fairly dry w/a touch of spice a bit of mineral that amps up the body. Body is light-medium, and carbonation is moderate and at just the right level.
D-A good basic brew that is refreshing and flavorful. The weather's a little cold this week, and it's more appropriate than the lagers and pilsners I've been drinking. This is my second sample from this brewery, and my preferred variety thus far.

3.75/5 rDev -3.1%

A: Muddled golden brown (not the nicest looking beer, admittedly) with half a finger of beige head that fades within a minute and leaves no lacing.
S: Herbal hops, biscuity malts, dried fruits. Some earthy/roasted notes underneath.
T: The malts hit first, with several layers of toasted and bready flavors being most prominent. Their sweetness is tempered slightly by a touch of herbal/grassy hop bitterness in the middle. A faint yeasty fruitiness pervades, especially in the beginning. Relatively clean finish.
M: Medium-light bodied, with a subtle but adequate carbonation.
O: Overall a pretty balanced beer with decent complexity and no off flavors. Not necessarily worth seeking out, but if you stumble upon it, you wouldn't be wrong to pick it up.
