2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the bottle, pours a clear red with a thick white foamy head. Aroma is malty and that of frat house lager. Taste is underwhelming. Malty, thin, quaffable but otherwise just ok.

I could smell the pumpkin/gourd, took half a bottle to get used to. Still not one of my favorites

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very nice honey like amber with a nice white head. Super sweet malt nose with a good dose of roasted nuttiness. Full creamy mouthfeel that finishes out with a nice floral hoppiness balances a sweet biscuity malt presence.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy redish amber with a thin head along the sides of the glass. The nose is semi sweet with hints of nuts and toasted almond. The flavor is nice and roasted with malted hops and some caramel malt as well. the flavor is nice and it lasts on the palate for a while. Overall it is a better beer then people make it out to be.

The 12 ounce bottle poured a clear medium dark reddish amber beverage with a modest sized frothy off-white head that was mostly diminishing and left some good lacing on the glass. The aroma was consistent with a good Oktoberfest with good notes of toffee, caramel bread and a hint of floral hops. The body was medium-light with average carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor started out just barely sweet and stayed that way through the medium length finish which was slightly on the dry side.

Pours a dark red honey/amber with some mild nutty aroma. Rich pecan pie flavor, tastes like autumn. Smooth finish with a slight bitterness. Very nice for a cool fall evening. M.

Had a glass at Ashley’s in Ann Arbor as part of a sampler. Solid, but uninspiring. Spicy, but a little boring.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a copper-brown color with thin tan head. Aroma is sweet malt and toasted bread. Aroma is malty, with a hint of spice. A little too sweet, but not overpowering. Nice bittersweet finish, but a little thin mouthfeel. A good seasonal, but not something I’d want to drink over and over.

Light amber pour with an off whit head. Aroma of citrus and light hops. Medium light body, accompanied by a brisk, crisp palate. Flavor is lacking, however.
