3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Dark ruby-tinted mahogany color with a thin beige head on top. The nose is pleasant with hints of floral tones, fresh bread, sweet caramel candies. Moderate carbonation that doesn’t get too spritzy. Smooth on the finish makes this one easy to drink.
Great flavors of caramel sweetness, mild toffee, crackers, bready flavors on the back end. All of these meld well make this one easy to drink. Tasty beer here that is a good representation by an American brewery. I wouldn’t mind having a sixer of this in the fridge each and every fall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz van into a lager glass.
Beautiful appearance with a deep copper-amber body that’s topped by a thick and tall off-white head. Excellent clarity. Little visible carbonation after ’settling’.
Mild aroma, as expected, with both bready malts and spicy hops evident.
The flavor is a bit more hoppy with a solid malt base. Overalll, lightly bitter

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer is really light. Some slightly malty flavors in the body which quickly disappears. Low on the hops content as well.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance is amber with tan head. Aroma is sweet. Taste is light with a balance of sweet malts and bitterness. Not the best example, but drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a beautiful amber with a medium head. On the nose, malt, caramel, with an interesting hop presence. Same goes for the taste. The body is kind of weak though, and so is the final. It is a good beer, and I’d drink it again without a problem.

Draft. Clear copper with a small white head. It had virtually no nose. The flavor was sweet with some caramel, biscuit and a little dark fruitiness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice enough, nice toffee and vinous notes with a deep caramel. Slightly lighter bodied than the Munich ones. But otherwise pretty good, true to style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great looking, deep amber with finger of thick off-white foam which laced the entire way down. Aromas are of light bready malt, but fairly subdued. Unfortunately the taste is less remarkable. Fairly smooth, and somewhat sweet, there’s just not a ton of character here. Middle of the road for the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. Biscuit malt aroma. Some pepper and ginger. Medium body, sweet, a bit flat but nice that it doesn’t smack you with pumpkin or spices. Very drinkable.
