Good fall beer, but not great. Flavor is nice (safe) and doesn’t overwhelm with seasonal spices. Aroma is good. Pallet is smooth and clean, not much of a mouthful. I’d drink it again, but wouldn’t go out of my way to find it.

Good malty smell. Amber red translucent color with small tan head. Taste the malt and hops with some spiciness. Had lingering bitter floral taste. Okay.

Into a pint glass. Half finger of head on top of a copper body.
Smell is wet grain and a little earthy.
Taste has good malt sweetness, but not too much. Mild bitterness. Bready and malty overall.
Crisp, but still smooth texture with moderate carbonation and medium body.
A good beer. If you find one, drink it.

Clear amber color with a foamy beige head. Sweet caramel nose. Sweet beer with lots of caramel and some sticky-bun doughyness. Faint hoppy bitterness in the finish.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma of caramel dominated over anything else. There is a nice bready malty quality. Very clean and easy drinking. Well made.

Poured into Free State shaker glass. A nice amber color with good head. medium bodied, and a round caramel tone, but not a caramel sweet one. Clean character. A good beer.

12 oz bottle to glass. Recd in trade from RobertDale aroma of slight toffee and malt. Between medium and dark amber orange pour. Taste is balanced. Slight malt sweetness. Some hops but just the right amounts. EASY to drink. Thanks Bob

Beer is drinkable, but it seems a tad too malty. Strong apricot syrup flavor.
