UPDATED: OCT 2, 2012 Pours a clear amber with creamy head. Light malty aroma, not much else. Very sweet and sticky, general malty caramel taste. Overall: Not a big fan of the style, but this is a pretty good example.

Copper color with creamy head that stood up well, with nice lacing. Crisp aroma though not real strong. Really tasty October fest.

Pours tea-brown with a small off-white head. Scent is caramel....a bit milky. Taste is the same ....a cloying sweetness that just lingers ... Not a fan of this one.

Bottle. Lactic caramel malt aroma. Amber with moderate head. Sweet caramel malt and bitter/acidic flavor. Rough - not really a beer I’d want to session.

Originally reviewed: 1/13/10. This was a new offering at my local store recently. Wierd. I didn’t see this in the fall when all the other Fests were out. Wonder why this decided to pop up now. Huh. On to the beer... Poured into my pint glass. Pours a very clear pale orange with a small white head on top. Retention is weak, but it left some nice sip rings anyways. Sort of a dirty scent eminates from this one. Dull earth, old veggies, and a light caramel scent on the back end. That’s different. Nice creamy body. Easy to drink, and a pleasing feel. Flavors of mild toasted crackers at the onset, light toffee in the middle, and finishes mildly bitter, but with a touch of sweetness. Aftertaste is sort of fruity. Hop bitterness is low in this one. I’m not sure what I think of this one. I’ve had better Fests, no doubt, but this was a decent beer for sure. Some characteristics I didn’t like, but others I did. Try it for yourself.

Bottle. Sweet malt and a tart cider like aroma. Orange amber with a minimal head. Sweet caramel malt flavor, and a bit of vegetal bitterness in the finish that leaves an odd aftertaste (quinine?). Light to medium, lightly carbonated body.

Bottle from Half Time. Pours light amber with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is sugary malt. Near med body. Flavor is grain with a slight toffee aspect. Sugar lies beneath, but there’s enough hop to almost balance. Worth it for the label.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, grain, leaves, and toasting. Poured amber in color with a small, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. A few medium-sized particles throughout. Good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malt, grain, toasting, corn, and a hint of garbage. Light to medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt, grain, toast finish.
