Don’t feel it’s as full bodied as the description. Good malt but not enough spice, Easy drinking

Bottle. Translucent dark amber with a tall, frothy tan head. Aroma is caramel, toasted malt, and light spicy hops. Big caramel and sweet malt up front with spicy hops, toffee and toasted malt following. Body is medium and slightly chewy with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Finished with more caramel, bigger toffee presence, spicy hops, toasted malt and dark bread.

This is a tasty beer but it is a bit sweet for my taste. Still, it has a decently autumnal flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Found a bottle of this when we were in the OBX visiting. Consumed on 9/22/09. Reviewed from notes.
Poured into my pint glass a crystal clear pale orange. Minimal bubbles rising through. 1 inch white head on top. Some retention, little lacing. Smell of earthy dull bitterness mixed some hints of caramel sweetness.
The mouth is thin and lacking carbonation on the tongue. Mild flavor on this one. Some sweet caramel, slight bittering hops in the middle. Nothing noteworthy about this one at all. Pretty average, tame, and unoffensive.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light barley malt nose. Clear amber, medium head, good lacing. Weak barley malt flavor. Medium body. Nothing offensive, macros intensity. Boring. One of the weaker octoberfests.
