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

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Pours a light copper color with about a fingers worth of head that slowly dissipates leaving behind a rather nice lacing.

S: Roasted malt, spices mostly cloves no hops detected on the nose.

T: Toasted malt, caramel, cloves, and just a hint of a lemon honey note towards the finish.

M: Has a medium body and a moderate amount of carbonation.

O: This is my first beer from Magic Hat and I really enjoyed it, picked it up in a mixed six highly drinkable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Outside, straight from bottle. Not crazy about the bottle art though.

S - Some sweeter malt and faint fruity notes.

T - Malty in nature with a bit of caramel sweetness and hints at darker fruit. Lacking a bit in depth and complexity.

MF - Smooth, on the lighter side of medium-bodied, with good carbonation.

O - Likely my last fall seasonal this year. This brew was pleasant, but not worth seeking out again in my opinion. I prefer the more complex Octobers from East Coast breweries that are available at the same price.

Appearance- Orange brown, light with a thin white head. Slightly Murky

Smell- Cinnamon, White pepper. Light spice with a squash like aroma

Taste- Sweet malts that hint orange are surrounded by Gentle spicy flavors. The white pepper smell comes through here very well.

Mouthfeel- Decent body with long lasting spice linger.

Drinkability- I could very easily drink 3 or 4 in session.

Notes: My first Magic Hat Brew. Not bad, try this one with meatloaf and cheesey mashed potatos
