Richly malty and long on the palate, with just enough hop backing to make this beautiful amber colored "alt" style beer notably well balanced.

A- Pours a dark golden color with a 1/4" head tha sticks around for a few seconds before dissipating to a ring around the outside of the glass

S- Some off malt scents. Nothing else really. Not digging this too much

T- Luckily the taste is much better than the smell. Combination of a good malty pale ale and apple cider. This combination is pretty nice

M- Little too bubbly for the style it is supposed to be but it works well with the apple flavor.

O- Not something I'd spend money on (on purpose) but not something I'd drainpour either.

Pours a clear amber color with an off-white head. Sweet toffee and caramel malt aroma. A touch of bread, sweet grape, and a little bit of red fruit. Maybe a hint of banana. Sweet malt and grape on the palate. Toffee malt, a little bit of toasted bread, and some red fruits. Minimal hoppiness, just a little bit of floral hop character.

Pours a clear, dark copper color with a quickly dissipating off-white head. Very nice aroma consisting of sweet raisin, sweet banana, and pumpkin spice ice cream. The aroma takes me to September/October for Oktoberfest. Maybe even the Covered Bridge Festival, if you've been in west-central Indiana in October. Mouthfeel is characterized by being light to medium body, soft, and wet. The flavor is a bit of a disappointment. Heavy nutmeg and cinnamon from start to finish. A little Dogfisheadish in their aggressiveness with spice. A lot of pumpkin pie and Oktoberfest. Not great, but certainly drinkable.

Appropriately amber in color, thin lightly tan head of foam that leaves a bit of spotty lace.

Nutty, malty sweet, hint of earth. Just a bit light overall.

Solid malt sweetness, nutty, mildly fruity, earthiness to the hops. Slight alcohol at the end. Really tasty beer overall.

Very soft carbonation, lighter side of a medium body. Smooth and lightly crisp. Quite refreshing in fact.

One of the more enjoyable alt beers I've had. I think this is a really good beer that drinks exceptionally well. Quite surprised by this one.
