A- brownish red with a finger of foam that remained through out. Good lacing.

S- Sweet, bread-like scent. Touch of autumn spice, cinnamon.

T- Clean beginning which quickly turns into a sugary, yeasty corn finish which lingers like that last drunk that won't leave your house after a party even though it's well past 02:30.

M- body is light and crisp which gives its initially clean encounter.

Not terrible, in fact after my first tasting, I had about 4 more but I'm not really a fan of autumn beers and am thus a bit biased. However, it's pound cake like consistency really left a bad taste in my mouth overall.
