look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Very cloudy orange, quick dissipating white head.

S: Rich, sweet, pumpkin, dark

T: Immediate pumpkin notes, sweet tang, middle-sour taste, bit of a spicy aftertaste. Definite cinnamon and a slight hint of citrus

M: Smooth and thick. Not syrupy, not oily, perfectly carbonated. Exactly how an amber lager should go down. Incredible

This is a delicious beer. It's drinkable and complex. It's tasty and savory. It goes well with a hearty meal or a pipe and a good book. Great work, Philadelphia Brewing Co. I'd buy it again any time.

12oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A - Dark clear amber brown with a small bubbly white head.

S - Mostly caramel malt with a slight hint of fruitiness.

T - Caramel malt and rye up front, followed by floral and fruity hops. There is a light spiciness in the finish. The hops really balance out the sweet malt.

M - Medium bodied, crisp, medium-low carbonation.

O - Decent amber ale (or ruby farmhouse ale as the brewer calls it). It's hard to classify this beer, as it does have a distinct flavor. Some will enjoy it, others may not. I think it's a balanced sessionable beer that tends to get better as you acquire a taste for it.

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

A: The beer pours a deep, cloudy red with almost no head.

S: Sweet smelling, almost banana like in my opinion. Mostly malt but the fruitiness is there.

T: Interesting. I was immediately hit with the malt, but there is a subtle bitterness to the finish.

M: Well carbonated with a dry finish.

O: This is a good beer. Not mind blowing in anyway but certainly something I will come back to sometime in the summer.
