COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This smooth brew ushers in Autumn with an invitingly tawny color complemented by an assertive maltiness. A noble crispness from German and Czech hops completes this very traditional lager-style beer.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2007
12oz bottle, 2007 version. Dark rusty orange color, clear. Bad nose of soggy wheat bread, corn, and some sweaty dog food scents. Surprisingly, it doesn’t taste so bad, with some chewy and semi-sweet caramel and woody maple malt flavors. Thin, kind of boring, but other than the smell it’s okay.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Draft at the Drafting Room, Spring House, PA. Poured coppery, with aroma of malt, toffee, some nuts, and chardonnay. Somewhat light on the palate, with the characteristic malt/toffee finish. A nice beer.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Pours a transparent orange amber with a spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of toasty grainy caramel malt and a touch of noble hops. Body starts with a decent authentic caramely malty sweetness and effervescent carbonation before a bittersweet, drier, peppery finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable.
