look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy copper with a hint of red and a thick off-white head that dissipates quickly to a lacing.

Smell: Roasted-malts, sweet.

Taste: Malty taste with some caramel, sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Light, easy to drink, and well carbonated.

Overall: One of the best fall beers around. Can't go wrong with one.
