12 oz. bottle- Pours hazy brownish red with a thin off white head. Aroma is strong in cinnamon, nutmeg, maybe some apple juice, but the spices really dominate. The taste is mostly spice too, I was hoping for a beer that tasted like a caramel apple, not enough of those two ingredients and too much of the spices, especially cinnamon. That being said, it tastes like a holiday spiced ale, if they would have called this beer their Christmas ale, and put it in their winter pack, it would have fit much better.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a Samuel Adams tasting glass. Appearance: The body has a light amber color with a slight haze. Itís head was small and settles down quickly leaving just a thin ring of foam at the edge of the glass. Lacing is minimal. Smell: The aroma is pleasant and light. It has a light fruity and cinnamon like cereal character. Taste / Palate: Itís flavor is light and brings some cereal and hay like base notes with some light cinnamon spice and apple cereal like mixed in. There is a very thin caramel like sweetness as well. The palate feels light and a little bit thin but easy drinking.

12oz bottle. Sweet sugary medium bodied. Sort of boring. The apple is restrained. Comes off pretty artificial. Pretty shabby offering.

drowland (6814) - Georgia, USA - DEC 10, 2014
12/10/14. 12oz bottle from Warehouse. Clear amber pour with a small khaki head that fades, doesnít lace much. Plain aroma, lightly malty, caramel malts, a hint of cinnamon. More present apple juice in the flavor, light cinnamon, just generically malty with some caramel. Not awful, but mehhh.

12oz bottle 11/27/14 (Thanksgiving friends house)-Pours a clear amber with an aroma of caramel and spices. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew was not what I was expecting but still not bad.

SlimHabib (306) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle pour. Clear amber with off white head. Bread, spices, and a slight apple aroma. Light body. Spices, and light caramel/apple taste. Taste a lot like their pumpkin seasonal ale. Which is also far from great.

Pours a clear dark amber color. This one was disappointing for me, as I found it neither caramelly or apply. Just tasted like a milder blue moon, to me.

Pours autumn gold into a shaker. White head crackles and recedes to hug rim. Sour apple skin and caramel aromas. Sweet and nutty with caramel upfront turning to mild apple before the medium length mildly cloying earth finish.
