look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Deep copper, with a good head and moderate lacing.

Smell: Sweet and bready malts, spice, slightly fruity.

Taste: Caramel, toffee, and biscuit. Slightly nutty and slightly fruity (like some people I know).

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dry.

The Verdict: Underwhelming. I keep hoping I’ll come across a Boston Brewing beer that will knock my socks off, but keep getting disappointed. This malty fall brew is drinkable, but just doesn’t really do anything for me.
