Review copied from my notes. Was poured from a 12oz into a standard pint a few hours ago.

Appearance: Amber in color. Nice off-white head that sticks around and covers the glass pretty well.

Smell: Not picking up much. Slightly sweet smell, a little bit of malt.

Taste: This is a pretty great ale. It is not trying to do anything special, but it hits the mark and is something I would certainly go back to. Malts with a nice spiciness that hits the end for an ale that fits the season but would be appropriate any time.

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly carbonated but not bad. Appropriate medium body that goes down easy.

I'd buy this year round if it was available.

Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a reddish brown, fast foam. Some layer remains. Fruity cherry smell. Malty caramel. Taste is a fruity sweet red malt and a mild hop bite close. Nice blend. Maybe a hint of whisky lurking in the back? Good.
