A - Pours a very copper body. It's like looking at a liquid penny. Little to no head, probably less than a fingers width. Disappears very quickly.
S - This smells like a fall/autumn beer. Very sweet, but the heaviness comes through. Smells of figs, raisins, plums, molasses, honey, banana peels, a bit of roast like roasted char.
T - Sweet molasses, slight roasted malt, aged fruits, more like figs, raisins and bananas. Sweet bread.
M - This absolutely is a medium body. At times you want to say light, but there's a thickness to it that reminds you to steer away from that notion. Smooth, silky, dry, and refreshing. It leaves you wanting more.
O - I can't believe some of the reviews. I think what is happening to this brew is, it's market is right in the middle. It's something that casual drinkers cannot appreciate, and something experienced drinkers find sub-par. As for me, this brew is a solid session beer. Very refreshing, it reminds me of autumn/fall with it's tones, and that's probably helping me considering fall/autumn is a few weeks away. But I will say this is a great brew and very nice treat if you have some extra cash laying around. But for $12 a 6pck here in LA.. I can understand why people either love it or hate it. The price is a big factor.

Pours a pretty deep copper color with minimal head. A bit of caramel in the aroma, not a whole lot going on here. Flavors of vanilla and malt, slight diacetyl, not a huge hop presence. Medium carbonation and a bit sticky. A little sweeter than expected, but quite drinkable.
