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

The beer poured into the glass clear amber with a low off-white head which was persistant enough to put some remnants on the glass.

The aroma was spicy with a bit of cinnamon. Caramel was fairly high in the aroma and a candy character was notable. Behind the spice was a bit of a vegetal nature. The aroma became more pronounced in fruity character as it warmed with a sweet cherry aromatic.

The flavor was caramel most notable with the same candy presence that was featured in the aroma. The spice that was present in the aroma was cinnamon, but in the flavor the spice seemed to be more of a clove. The bittering level was well achieved and struck a good balance with the malt overall. The flavor was lightly fruity, but still had a bit of a vegetal character.

The finish was dry with a lasting bit of caramel and light spice into the aftertaste. The body was medium with a moderate carbonation level. A nice beer, the vegetal notes detract a bit, but still a drinkable one.

12 ounce bottle.

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic.

Pours a nice brown color with a finger of fluffy foam. Aroma is a cross between victory/nutty malts and a earthy hoppiness.

Basically this is a typical nut brown ale. Decently malty and nice flavor but nothing crazy amazing. A nice, good, drinkable beer that is buried in a category full of average beers. Give me a Double Simcoe over this any day!

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 09 something. They put a label over the stamp on the bottle. Sampled on December 25, 2013.

The color is a slightly foggy medium amber with a modest off-white head. It becomes a ring.

The aroma is malty and moderately sweet with a burnt caramel note.

The body is about medium and smooth.

The taste also has a firm maltiness up front and it ends with a low and clean crisp hop finale. It was an above average beer.

T - Some tart apple is in here, sweet caramel malt, a little grainy.
M - Kinda watery, and almost spritzer-like.
O - An ok Autumn beer, decent aroma, lacks in feel though.

Great beer, poured into a flat bottomed pilsner glass. Made a 3/4" substantially frothy cream colored head with plenty of lace that coats the glass for the entire serving. Appearance is a cloudy reddish amber. It tasted sweet yet a little dry with the fruit at the front and the malt after. Bought a case to share for Thanksgiving but probably won't have any left for company in 5 days

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

Poured into a tall pint glass, color is amber, opaque, light tan head with some lacing, leaving a nice ring.

Smell is milder malt flavors, maybe some caramel, but some hints of vienna/munich style malts, light hop notes.

Taste is clean, crisp for an ale, nice simple flavors from the vienna/munich malts, light fruity malt sweetness, simple hop profile, i'm thinking noble style with some grassy flavors.

Mouthfeel is crisp, clean, touch of bitterness on the tongue, very nice and simple and clean.

Overall, an easy drinking hybrid style ale, lager type malts with ale yeast. Cleaner malt flavors and light hop flavor are pleasant.
