From 12 oz bottle, this has got to be the brightest beer I have ever seen. Pours a brilliant orange, very clear, nice layer of foam and light lacing. Nose of caramel, bread, and light floral hops. Flavors follow the nose with sweet caramel malts tot he front and sides with a nice light floral hop flavor on the back. Okto finishes clean and crisp. Highly recommended for a session, and great for fans of autumn and fest lagers and alts. Very nice. Cheers.

Pours a very light orange with a quickly dissolving creamy head. Aroma of fruit and bread. First taste is of caramel, moderate malty backbone. No discernible hop presence. Very thin mouthfeel. Very sweet overall character. Smooth drinking and average for the style.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours deep copper with an off white head that settles quickly.

S: Very malty with some floral hops.

T: Very malt forward, bready slightly nutty with some light caramel sweetness, some fruitiness, and floral hops. Very clean finish.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: A pretty solid (and in my opinion underrated) fall brew.
