Bottle… Clear amber lager with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. Biscuity, caramelized, toffee nose with a hint of acetaldehyde. Medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. Well-balanced. Malty caramel sweetness balanced by spicy hop bitterness. Crisp, lightly bitter finish. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Brownish pour. typical caramel malt dominate aroma. Flavor is much the same. Nothing special here. kp (10881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2009

pours amber, off-white head
aroma is hoppy, some spices and malts.
flavor, caramel malts followed by thin bitter hop profile.Overall finish retains a good amount of sweet caramel, light spices also noted for some bitterness. Enjoyed this one a lot, more on the sweet side and not so much of the over hoppy seasonals out there. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2013
12oz bottle, filled 8/20/13. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves some lace. Medium-plus body. Crisp carbonation. Toasty, caramel malts. Light lemon. Moderate bitter, light sweet. Was solid as I swigged it in between bites of sandwich, but on it’s own, it suffers.

12 ounce bottle thanks to brentk56. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that goes down quickly. The aroma is full of those crisp malts, light banana that smells like Autumn. A easygoing smooth flavor; light hops, sweet malts, light banana. Smooth and nice. I could drink a few liters of this. b3shine (9027) - Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a mostly transparent golden orange with foamy eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of mild caramel and very soft hops. Tastes like it smells with some biscuit as well. Average on the palate. A decent no-frills example of the style. drowland (8895) - Georgia, USA - OCT 4, 2013
10/4/13. On tap at Bleu Cafe. My first rating on the new Windows app! Mild aroma, light malts, a hint of toffee and fruitiness. Flavor follows, lightly sweet, toasty. Meh drfabulous (8282) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Draught at Lexington Beerworks. Orange color. Light body. Not heavy on caramel at all. Some citrus and basically pretty refreshing Oktoberfest. jackl (8271) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Keg @ Sedona. Medium amber, small head. Flabby, sweet, bready nose. Some brown sugar and buts. Angel food cake. The taste is similarly bready, not particularly clean. Sweet finish. Medium body, light carbonation. Overall, could be reigned in a bit.
