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.

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.

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.

Taste medium sweetness, lightly bitter,

Overall a light multy Carmel tasting beer. Not the best but not the worst. I don’t think I would suggest this beer to a friend.

Ok october fest. Thin in body and seemed watered down as if they meant to make this approachable.

Typical for the style, it’s heavy on the caramely malts and light on hops. Not a fan in general but it’s more or less representative.

Pours a light brown with a white head. Aroma is malt and caramel. Flavor is sweet malt and a mild bitterness that works well. I really enjoyed this one.
