Date: September 24, 2011 Mode: Bottle Source: Minneapolis Beer Fest. Full description not available as I sampled way too many beers in 4.5 hours! thornecb (5914) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Pours deep amber into a shaker. Off-white micro head with little retention recedes to skim surface. Bread and nut aromas. Sweet nutty caramel upfront turning to resin in the dry, lasting slightly hot finish. jrodooo5 (1672) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - SEP 17, 2011
A very drinkable beer. Has some nice flavor undertones but nothing specifically stands out. I really enjoy the clean crisp finish. A nice solid beer that you could drink more than 1 in a sitting. hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 22, 2011
’seasonal ale’ on tap at papago 9/2/10.
pale brown ale/maerzen color.
the aroma and flavor are a combo of brown and maerzen... malt, caramel, slight roast, a little grass and fallen leaves. there’s a little malt stickiness on the palate but crisp carbonation takes care of it. i could (and did) drink a lot of these. jcos (1851) - Maryland, USA - JUL 5, 2011
I am not a huge fan of fall seasonals, and even with that, this beer disappointed.

Good beer with a nice robust smell. I always get it when it comes out for seasonal freekyp (2257) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Pours a cloudy amber with a thin head, but leaves thick stringy lacing. Aroma shows ample caramel malt that unfortunately does not carry over into the flavor. Shows a balanced flavor profile with light malt sweetness and earthy hops combining to produce an easy drinking amber. Flavors fade quickly leaving little aftertaste. Medium bodied and a bit boring.

Very decent beer, but nothing crazy. Nice malt profile is marginalized by sugary stickiness on the palate. Otherwise, this is a very balanced and easy drinking beer. drpimento (3639) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 4, 2010
I don’t know what happened here. Poured with a nice, medium sized, foamy, frothy, cream colored head that lasts and some lace. Color is a clear red amber. Aroma is dirty feet. Flavor is malt, bitter citrus, yeast, and something sharp I cant place. Body is decent and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor with a little alcohol. unclemike (3124) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - NOV 17, 2010
From a 12 oz bottle this poured a rich amber color with white head and decent lacing. Nose of malts, citrus hops, with a decent mouthfeel. Flavors of malts and hops, with a mild and slightly bitter finish. I was surprised to learn it was an amber. Pretty good beer
