3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nose is sweet, earthy malt, pretty classic for an Amber rolled out this time of year, with some interesting taffy-like fruity notes. Pours a bright orange with amber highlights and some haze, and a creamy off-white head. Light-medium body is super soft, filled with tangy fruit; low carbonation, low bitterness but smacking and quenching, maybe a little too sweet and candyish but that fades a bit. Honey, touch of spice, light citrus, light malt depth and not pushing the caramel too hard. Very fresh and clean. In the end, pretty tasty, if a bit too easy; I’d still like to see something like this around in late spring and through summer, even as a lighter alternative in der Bockzeit.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear copper in in color, minimal white head and hardly any lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty, some caramel and grain and very few hops. Flavor is sweet, quite malty and fruity. Drinkable and enjoyable but not really great...

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Moriartys. Clear medium-dark amber. Minimal head or aroma. Feels a bit like a dark ESB. Thin palate but some nice dark amber fruit notes. Apricot pits. Burnt toast with marmalade. Pumpkin. Bright juicy notes in the middle. Modest spicy finish. Interesting take on the Oktoberfest style.

Enjoyable beer. Clean pour, amber brown. Taste is very light and almost fruity. Not much aroma or lacing, but going down it is fairly smooth.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a big, off-white head. Aroma is very malty, with whiffs of floral hops. Taste is a nice blend of biscuity malts, lightly roasted malts and a strong hop presence, with slight spice. Medium body, smooth, moderate carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz draft at Magerk’s in Fort Washington, PA. On the weak side for a Weyerbacher brew and rather disappointing. Could have used a bit of spice and a heavier gravity.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tasted slightly "tinny". Mild and slightly flat tasting as well. I wouldn’t say they captured the essence of Autumn. To me this time of year represents spices, apples/pears, corn, etc...I don’t taste any of that in this beer. Overall its decent but I wouldn’t go out of my way to drink it.

Solid and quite drinkable. Nothing special going on here - just a smooth, poundable beer. Very subtle spice aroma but just enough hint of spice in the finish of the flavor to make this beer worthwhile. Nicely balanced! Good effort!
