This pours a richly hued caramel with a ruby tinge. There’s a pleasingly hoppy aroma dominated by a piney character yet undergird with some dank notes. The beer tastes hoppy, piney, and slightly dank. There’s a lingering bitterness undercut with a maple sweetness. The flavor is piney and bitter. Tastes like autumn!

Clear deep amber color with a massive super stingy and clingy off white head. Nice citrus and piney hop nose.
Wow, this is a really good beer. A bit of a thin body with prickly carbonation. Nice toasty maltiness with big hoppiness and the faintest toach of maple sweetness to balance the bitterness. Very tannic with a very bright clean and crisp finish. Complex yet drinkable, hoppy, malty, and flavorful. Really enjoy it and looking forward to drinking this this fall!

Great seasonal Beer. Its a very well balanced beer, with definite Hop presence, sweet maple smells/taste and a nice thick sticky lingering head. The color is absolutely gorgeous when held up to the light. Quite drinkable but still a respectable amount of abv. This is a new fall favorite.

Appearance - slight haze to the diluted tangerine brew. A finger or more of light mocha head, sticky and slow to fade.
Aroma - bright citrusy character, pineapple and pink grapefruit. A sweet smelling amber.
Taste - hardy grains with a biscuity undertone, caramel and malt in support. The hops have excellent balance, all the bitterness of an amber without washing away the sweetness of the grain and maple. The swallow allows the bitterness its moment, ending with grapefruit pith and a dry palate.
Mouthfeel - smooth, plenty crisp, good weightiness for the style.
Overall - great fall session beer from Anchor.

A - Beer pours a clear amber with 2-3 fingers of fluffy cream colored head. Excellent lacing and head retention. This is a beautiful beer.
S - Very aromatic. I smell a complex blend of floral, fruity, and piney hop aromas. Faint notes of biscuit as well.
T - Moderate sweetness, then the aforementioned hops show themselves. Dry, biscuity finish. Very nice.
M - Medium bodied with some nice creaminess.
O - Nice balance. Crisp and refreshing. Moderate level of hoppiness but not overdone. Just what I was in the mood for. I'm impressed with this beer and pleasantly surprised at how much I like it. Will definitely seek it out again.

Thanks to Kegatron for gifting me with this bottle. Poured into a snifter, the brew appears a hazy copper color with a finger of yellowish tan froth that fades back leaving strings and spots of lace.
The aroma has quite a fruity and floral hop appeal that blends into almost a belgian-like note of pink bubblegum. Some earthen and more herbal to citrus notes appear with more whiffs. The malt is quite caramel or toffee in character.
The flavor is malty with quite a toasty bready grain aspect. A bit of herbal hops, slightly fruity and floral. Some citrus and herbs appear more evident with each sip and a mild grassy bitterness. Kiss of alcohol that has that previously described pink bubblegum note sbout it.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is smooth and an interesting seasonal that is unique and easy drinking. When you read the label, you almost feel like there is a hint of maple earthiness blended in with the malt character. Overall a solid and enjoyable seasonal that I will probably seek out again.

S: Rich, sweet vienna malt, touch of maple, woodiness, almost soft ceder like, sandalwood heavy.
L: Fairly clear, reddish brown, creamy white head that dissipates. Solid lacing.
T: Vienna-like malt, slightly woody, semi-sweet. An herbal undercurrent lingers with the hops. Medium low woody/herbal bitterness. Finishes quite dry with residual herbalness.
M: Medium high carbonation, provides a "zing" on the palate. Medium light bodied.
Really solid. Not sure if the maple comes through, but still very enjoyable.

A: Clean dark orange with a near white one finger head. Ample retention and lacing.
S: The aroma stole the show at first with a boozy sweetness of biscuit and maple. Followed by tropical fruits, mango, orange, pine and lemon. The bitterness actually stings the sinuses a little.
T: BIG BITTER hop presents, with a mild sweetness. Bittersweet. Mostly bitter.
M: Carbonation was a little high, I found myself delaying the swallow waiting for the fizz to die down.
O: This beer has a lot going on, not one I would recommend to the neophyte. A hop head should enjoy it. I liked it.
L: (label) I rate a 5
