COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Amber color out of the bottle with a rocky beige head and a dark fruit sweetness in the nose. Caramel sweetness with an almost raspberry fruitiness to it, with plum and raisen. Hearty malty beer.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2006 [re-rate - itís been a while since Iíve had this, and I must say that either my tastes have changed, or this beer has improved - subtle dark fruits and light caramel fill what I once thought was a void - nice yeasty, bready qualities abound - not fantastic, but certainly under-rated] Looks smells and tastes like an oktoberfest as an ale - itís interesting, but that doesnít make it good - slight sweet nuttiness and a touch of toasted bread float atop a base flavor that I can only describe as "liquid nothingness" - thereís just nothing there holding this ale together - I like gearyís, but this is a miss with me.

DYCSoccer17 (3312) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 11, 2004
Slightly hazy amber color with a very quickly dissipating off white head. Faint aroma with hints of sticky brown sugar malts, but not much else. Very carbonated. Very roasty, almost astringent..a little skunky in the finish. This is either infected, or just a really poor beer that hasnt much style.

Color of autumn leaves, deep red, brown, orange with a small tan head. Malty and hopped well. A bit toasty/nutty. Body is a bit weak but overall enjoyable.

TheBeerGod (5233) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Dark magenta and amber blend. Small tan head. Nose is hoppy and bitter with light malts and fruit notes. Faint spice. Taste is hoppy with some malty notes and nutty notes. A bit of a floral taste as well. Bitter fruit taste hiding in there as well. Palate is a bit oily and is bitter. Finish is, you guessed it, bitter. Not much more to this than dry, bitter hops. Itís okay and drinkable, just nothing overwhelming. Been there, and already done it.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 23, 2004
2004 bottle. Pours a light mahogany to cherry red with some light tan/browns. Light beige/cream colored head. Aroma is highly fruity and hoppy. Lots of cherry notes from the fruity yeast and hints of light hops. Slightly nutty notes in there as well. Flavor is moderately bitter, quite dry and has more of an earthy dry hops appeal. Not finding much malt, donít find any touch of chocolate or sweet caramel. Lightly toasted malt of some sort. A bit of thinning, medium bodied. A bit of a sour finish along with the bitterness. Seems like an everyday amber ale to me.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2004
Tap @ Blind Tiger. Cloudy brown color with small head. Arma of malt, chocolate and light hops. Taste was really nutty. I donít know what kind, maybe pecans? Really tasty.

Drinkable, but not as good as the other Gearyís brews that Iíve had. Decent color, so-so flavor...

MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2004
Practical hazelnut sweetness overseeing a distant mud bank of toffee and orange rinds...Short, grassy hops and pomegranate seeds appear in an otherwise very placid end...An easy-to-drink offering for those who venture out of the swill path but are still not ready to stray very far...

Poured a reddish color with thin tan head. Sweet caramel nutty flavor with a hint of chocolate and also a little bit of hops thrown in.
