COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the South, the surest sign of fall is the first crisp morning. That morning starts the Ginko leaves turning yellow. Then, like a football team at the snap, the bright yellow leaves all fall at once, carpeting backyards with a thick layer of leaves. Our Fall Lager builds to a malty peak, and then disappears with a clean crisp hop note.

Sampled from that tap at Yazoo BNA. Pours a clear orange gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet grains and earthy bread with a bit of nuttiness underlying. Flavor is similar with sweet grains and nuttiness supported by bread.

Light and sweet, with the aromas and flavors of fallen leaves and a nice malty finish. A little sweet, like brown sugar and syrup.

Bottle from Craft Brewed. Pours a clear copper with a finger of foam. Bready malt nose with some toasted toffee and grain. Sweet and caramelly. A little heavy, but nice. Caramel and toffee bread finish. Not bad.

Shag (3045) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Amber to brown color with a beige head. Aroma contains some caramel and nutmeg. The flavor is a bit dry with caramel and toffee. Wow this is more like a brown ale but overall it’s pretty good.

chinchill (5309) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2015
Fresh 12 oz bottle from TN with a bottling date of 23 Sept. 2015. Served in a Belgian snifter. Pours with an autumnal orange-amber body topped by a small head that soon dies to a thin ring. High clarity. As the color suggests, this has some medium roast and (I think) caramel malts. Both the aroma and flavor are lightly sweet. A faint hint of vinegar in the aroma seriously detracts from the otherwise pleasant aromatics, but this doesn’t carry over to the flavor (or gets masked). Feel: medium-light body and carbonation. Overall: a lightly sweet, malt-dominated lager.

brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 11, 2015
On tap @ Yazoo. Amber in color with some white foam. Very toasty and bready malt aroma. There’s a light caramel quality and quite a bit of fruity ester character, too. Has a bunch of apricot to it, which is a bit weird. Sweet, malty flavor, though a bit acidic on the finish. Decent enough toffee, caramel, and toast, but no real hop character or bitterness here, which could be beneficial.

phaleslu (10652) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2015
12 oz. bottle from shrubber85, shared via DrSilverworm - thanks, fellas! It’s a year old, an October 2014 bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color, pretty vivid, with a small off-white head that settles into a ring. Notes of cracker and cereal malts, straw, grass, earth, and a bit of a phenolic hint in the flavor. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a malty, bitter mouthfeel. It’s thinner than many in the style, but it’s also aged a year. Not bad overall, though.

12oz bottle, thanks to shrubber85 for sharing. Shared with shigadeyo and phaleslu. Bottled on 10.13.14. Mildly hazy orange color, thin off-white ring of head, few loose bits of lace. Get some orange, toasty malt, some spiciness. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Medium-plus body. Kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Mild slick. A lot better than expected, not bad at all.

shigadeyo (3788) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2015
2014 Vintage... Toasty biscuit aroma, unique smell that I can?t seem to identify; deep golden color, thin off white crown; light caramel malts, toast, floral hops, slightly grassy; medium light, calm and smooth texture; definitely in the style of the lighter helles Oktoberfests, but still good and quite refreshing.

Patrickctenchi (6730) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle: Pours slightly hazy amber with a fluffy beige head. Caramel malt, lightly nutty aroma. Taste is sweet, toffee malt, lightly toasted....a bit leafy. Not bad...nothing outstanding....mild and typical.
