Avery nice offering from SA. The beer style is very sessionable and fairly complex as well. I enjoyed every moment of the six pack playing texas hold em with the family.

A- Nice white head with lacing. Amber orange color that looks like the autumn leaves on the bottle. Heavy carbonation.

S- Hops, malt, ....just pleasent and well balanced.

T- Starts of with a nice malt charcter followed by a hop bittereness. very well balanced.


d-very nice for the style

One of my favorites ever, and perfect for fall Sunday Mornings

Each one tastes like another

My biggest complaints: it's not as easy to find as I'd like, and I can't drink more than 12 without the bar running out, getting the "over served" lecture etc

This is my favorite beer. I love everything about it. My only negative is that it's a seasonal beer and I have to wait a long time to enjoy it again.
