Bottle. Gold pour with a thin bubbly white head. Caramel nose with pine hop finish. Taste is crisp hoppy front with a malty body that has a good amount of sweet caramel to round out the bitter finish. Really pretty good middle of the road fall style beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear pale amber with a substantial antique lace head. Aroma is bread and resin. Taste is caramel malt, toast, a wee bit of coffee and a mild hop finish. Very quaffable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells malty and a bit earthy. Slight spice smell. Tastes of mild hops, just enough to balance the malty ness. Bit of a nutmeg taste maybe? Full flavored and well balanced. A bit of a bitter finish. But not overly sweet, malty or hoppy. Just a good well balanced full flavored beer!

Fantastic aroma, hints of exotic fruits, hops and some alcohol. Body is quite hollow and not as strong as the aroma would infer. Aftertaste is malty and slightly hoppy. Great aroma, very drinkable but not as tasty as one would hope.

12oz bottle, pours light amber with foamy white head. Scent is mostly malt, caramel and toffee. Taste is more sweet caramel nicely balanced with some light hops. Would be very easy to kick back quite a few of these.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy amber-orange pour with white head. Aroma is very fall like with rustic herbal hops and sweet toasted malt. Slight vegetal note to the hops, indicating this is a bit past prime. Flavor is initially a moderate herbal and citrus bitterness that gives way to a little sweet toasted caramel malt. Finishes bitter and dry with some nutty toasted malt. Would like to try fresh.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
undated 12 oz bottle served in a pint glass in 2011 (from notes).
No style indicated on the label other than Fall "seasonal", so I was surprised to find the beer is like a strong pale ale or ESB rather than a marzen. Not surprised by the flavor, however, since there is plenty of earthy and spicy hop aroma. There also some citrus in the nose, but the flavor veers more towards the citrus side, and leaves a moderately bitter grapefruit aftertaste.
A nice orange-amber with a lasting off-white head.
O: a bold and flavorful Fall seasonal.
