This is a fairly mild malty October beer. I'm not a big fan of the style and this one is a bit more carbonated than I like.

It is amber in color, with a mild smell and average mouthfeel. It was a perfectly fine happy hour beer for this time of year, but I would be hard pressed to buy it by the case. Or six.

Updated 11/25/13: Tried it again. Definite caramel notes. More balanced than I remembered, though hops are very mild. Upgraded rating slightly

Single bottle pick up and poured into a pint glass. 10/27

Pours copper colored amber. Fluffy white foam leaves a modest layer and some lacing. Malty pilsy nose. Like someone upped the malt ante in a Beck's pilsener. But does work. Somewhat sweet, clean flavor. Just a hint of a bite and then a fast finish. Not bad, certainly sessionable.
