Bottle as shown. Pours a clear copper with a small frothy white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a wet doughy malt and caramel. Thin mouthfeel with a toasty malt and caramel with a nice earthy finish. Easy to drink, a decent vienna from Magic Hat.

I thought I had a bad bottle, so I tried another one out of the sampler 12-pack but it was the same. Footbalmed......

Mora2000 (5968) - McKinney, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a light amber color with a white head. The aroma is strong toffee with not too much else. The flavor is toffee, earth and dirt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Like a lot of beer from Magic Hat, the beer is average across the board.

(12oz bottle dated best by Dec 31, 2010 thanks to bu11zeye) clear orange, lingering bubbles. Nose of paper, oxidation, squash and candy corn. Taste of candy corn, alcohol, sweet pumpkin, with a well carbonated creamy finish.

TheBeerGod (5572) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle. Rusty amber with a minuscule, fizzy white head. Strong caramel and spicy hops in the aroma. Sweet fruit and malt as well. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, dried fruit, light berries and spicy hops. Body is medium with a soft chewiness about it. Carbonation is moderate. Finishes with more caramel, sweet malt, fruit, spicy and earthy hops, and soft nuttiness.

Suttree (5548) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 7, 2010
The definition of a tick, to be honest. Orangey copper, decent sized beige head. Caramel, lightly spicy aroma. Flavor is caramel and toast, maybe some light fruit notes, maybe some light spicy notes. Not horrible, but I couldn’t wait to get to the next beer.

Strykzone (5534) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle at Bigelo’s Bistro. A medium brown with an off white soapy head that quickly dissipates. Not a bad beer at all. Nice fruit, spices that include pepper and cinnamon, and fairly rich malts. I had it with a spicy pizza which did not give the beer a fair chance. Still, it came through as a nice beer.
