look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Part of the Autumn Variety Pack Release. "This copper-colored ale is crafted with caramel malts, cinnamon, and fresh apple juice to stir up the tastes of fall."

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served in the mid 40ºs Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a copper cream white head, crisp creamy consistency and average retention over a maple orange body, mildly hazy with plenty of carbonation. Not a terrible head quality and the color shows some substance. 3.5

(Smell) Aroma is sweet caramel and bready malts overshadowed with a cinnamon applesauce complete with a faint green apple tartness. Pretty enjoyable if not all too predictable aroma as per the label. None of the aromas are unpleasing although the cinnamon apple aromatics easily overshadow the malt bill, leaning this beer towards a spiced cider at points. 3

(Taste) Quite heavy throughout on the cinnamon flavor, perhaps even more than the apple characteristics, which lie slightly underneath. Malt bill is not easy to determine based on the overall potency of the cinnamon apple profile. Strikingly dry finish which steals away the drinkability significantly. 3

(Mouthfeel) Dry, thin and somewhat tart. Not too clean based on the cinnamon character. Body is medium for the style and light/medium overall. Dryness should be turned up with an enhanced malt bill or a balance should be achieved by reducing the apples and cinnamon. 3

(Overall) Not the easiest beer to drink, the cinnamon and apple dominate the aroma, flavor and even mouthfeel of this beer, resulting in a dry, spiced boozy drink. There's lots of work to be done on this beer to balance out the caramel and apple flavors, because both are too dominant in this beer and reduce drinkability. I couldn't have more than one of these at a time, as my palate is nearly wrecked. In short, it's not for everyone and it isn't likely to be perceived to all as a beer due to the cinnamon and apple. 3
