3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy deep amber with a thin tan head, quickly gone and leaving foamy lace. Aroma of light toffee, heavy cereal grains and toasted malt. Taste of caramel, Munich malts, vegetal stalk and mild nuttiness. Creamy body finishes a touch dry and has some astringency too.

mmmm... beer. Straightforward beer. Nothing wrong with it. Nothing really right with it either. Pretty close to the quintesential "beer". That’s it and that’s that. Poured with a small head that lasted some and a bit of lace. Color is a medium amber. Flavor is medium: some malt and hops; nothing wrong and nothing right. A study in averageness. Drinkable. Ok body and finish.

Bottled. Poured rosy-orange with a well-retained white head. The aroma picked up toasted lighter fruits, wheat, and a pinch of honey with bone-dry grassy accents.. it seems like they brewed the blonde ale with only a change in malt bill as the difference. The flavor had caramel and redder fruit sweetness at the core with scratchy, grassy bitterness throughout.. the fruit was decent, but there wasn’t much else to grab onto. Light-bodied on the palate and empty at times.. otherwise crisp. This was alright.

Dark coppery brown with a slight haze and a small, firm, tan head. Crisp, caramel malt aroma. Smooth malt flavor with a nice hops backbone throughout. Quick, dry finish rounds it out very nicely.

Wonderful creamy head. Great carmel malty nose. Rich dark tones. Incredible finish with clean crisp hops. I hope they repeat next year.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, with a sticker on the neck stating Autumn Recipe. Copper color with a head that diminishes to a thin lid of taupe bubbles. Aroma is rather clean, with a hint of toasted malt. Just not much to sniff. Soft carbonation. Light pale malt start. Middle is full of light toasted malt. Crisp finish. Light linger of nutty and lightly toasted malt. Very easy drinking autumn brew.
