3.54/5  rDev +0.3%

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a clear cooper colored beer with a one finger white head. The head fades rather fast, giving way to a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is bready and sweet with a strong presence of fruit. The fruits detected in the nose are largely of apple and some lighter pear. Mixed with this are a good dose of caramel sweetness.

Taste – The taste begins with flavors of a malty and bready taste with a strong presence of caramel sweetness. As the taste advances further some apple flavors come to the tongue, giving it a slightly apple cider like taste. Some spice flavors also come to the tongue as well. With the taste advancing further the sweeter flavors begin to fade some and some lighter herbal hop flavors come to the tongue. In the end a slightly spiced and sweeter fruit and malty flavor is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly lower than average side in terms of thickness with a carbonation level that is rather average. The thin body was actually quite good with the apple and sweeter flavors of the beer as well as did a nice job with the lighter herbal hop flavors that came to the tongue at the end of the taste creating a very easy drinking brew.

Overall – A rather easy drinking harvest/fall style brew. It starts sweeter and end with a just enough hop and spice to add a bit of complexity.

A- Reminded me of a very light Brown Ale. Closer to a brickish red, with some brown mixed in.

S- Malty

T- Felt like it was the little brother of an Octoberfest

M- Wasn't quite what I was expecting. Not as hearty & full bodied.

O- Great beer to drink hanging with friends watching football.

3.49/5  rDev -1.1%

Appearance: Poured from the bottle into a nonic. Pours a light-ish amber with a creamy-looking finger head. Head dissipates within a minute to a nice creamy cap.

Aroma: Hearty, bready malt notes, some roastiness and some sweet notes as well.

Taste: Clean sweet and slightly roasted malt flavors, a little mild hop grassiness and spiciness, but sweet in the finish. A faint metallic tang as well.

Mouthfeel: Relatively thin, and relatively little carbonation. Easy to drink but not particularly satisfying.

Overall: A simple, easy to drink amber ale. Not my favorite rendition of an amber, malt-forward beer.

Pours a clear amber with a tall beige head.
In the aroma I detect some toasted malts with a hint of hops.
The taste is malty with some toasted malts and grains. I don't taste any hops.
Drinks smooth and clean on the palate but there is also some harshness in the aftertaste.
Aside from the harshness in the aftertaste this was a fairly desent beer. Very session like.

3.33/5  rDev -5.7%

Poured from a bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Amber color with nice head.

Smell: Pleasant sweet aroma, and can smell some hops and roasted malts.

Taste: Nice and smooth. The taste is mild, with nothing too unique.

This is a fun everyday beer. Nothing unique that makes it stand out.
