Poured out from a bottom of the barrel pitcher... This still looked pretty good but I'm not sure how long it had been sitting. The beer was a hazy yellow color with a decent looking white head on top. The smell was earthy with some bready yeast aromas and spice, There was also a little bit of citrus on the nose too. The taste of the beer is earthy, very mild with a sharp spict note in the far distant finish. The mouthfeel of the beer was a little under carbonated mainly from sitting the pitcher but there was some life left in there and it was drinkable. Overall this was an interesting brew.

First had: on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA

Served in a Long Trail tulip, a clearish light amber color with a fizzy white head and active carbonation. Aroma was woody, light with spice, apple skins, herbal. Truly autumnal on the palate, but as opposed to a full-blown pumpkin/spice beer, it was much lighter and subtle in body and taste. Essence of pumpkin and apple cider, peppery spice, grass, toasted wheat, herbal and earthy hop notes. Body was on the lighter side of medium. Overall quite good.

From 12/06/12 notes. Had this on tap at Pony Bar on the UES. Was labeled under Hill Farmstead and was told it was brewed there; not sure why this is labeled under Grassroots. 8 oz. pour.

a - Pours a somewhat transparent bright golden-orange color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of spice, pumpkin, pepper, yeast, apples, fruity malts. Heavy spice and light pumpkin, with some nice fruit in the end. Pretty good.

t - Tastes of pepper, apples, pumpkins, spices, yeast, wheat, bready malts, earthy notes. Spice is still there but more fruit than the nose; a step up for me.

m - Medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a nice, easy drinking fall beer. Nice fruit in the taste and the pumpkin is light, would like to have this again on a night fall night. Wouldn't classify as a pumpkin-y beer.
