Gold pour with watery white head and lace. Aroma is apple cider, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lots of apple. Flavor mirrors the aroma. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A smooth tasty beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Issues forth a hazed, amber-gold body with a thin, bubbly, close enough to white we’ll call it white head.
Smell: Toasted bread crumbs, cinnamon sticks, clove, powdered ginger, and basic sugar tossed together with lightly tart apple juice that’s hinting at a little bit of underlying funkiness that, for me, didn’t carry over into the taste.
Taste: A taste of toast, a sip of sweetish cider, and spicy hints of cinnamon, maybe even a bit of ginger. Comes together like a liquid blend of Apple Jacks and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. No apparent hop character, bitterness. Lightly tart, juicy, spicy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-low carbonation.
Overall: Like their bacon beer for the ACAT back in 2011, it’s an interesting brew. You may or may not like it, but you got give it that at least.
