Decent. Poured out of there new sweet looking can. Props for the design. Color is darkish brown with brownish white head. Not much aroma. Very malty flavor.

I dont think there can be better. Felt the hint of fall in the air and cracked open one. Ahh just like last years flavor. Almost like dinking that Fall feeling. Sweet flavor of spices and a very pleasant lingering after taste. Thumbs up Sam!!

Pours a deep orange/brown color with a thin head. The smell is full of mellow flavors and toasted malt. The taste was very nice with good mixtures of heavy malt with a slight citrus tang on the end to make this a great easy drinking beer for when the seasons start to change. The mouthfeel was nice, and refreshing.
