3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can into pint glass, cloudy golden-hued coppery-amber color with minimal creamy off-white head. Aroma notes of near-toffee caramel malt sweetness, melon fruits, vanilla and cinnamon spices. Taste adds nuttiness, citrus rind, honey, grain and coconut. Medium-light body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy with spicy fruity finish. Very creamsicle/cream soda like which is probably their goal, interesting.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass, rich copper color with a thin creamy head that dissipates quickly to a thin lacing. Aroma of vanilla, caramel, and sweet malts. Flavor is fruity, cereal grains, honey and spicy.Very creamy texture, would recommend to my friends and easy beer to drink.

12oz can served in a lager glass.
Surprising dark body for style with a very good head and decent lacing.
As claimed, the flavor is "malty, and lightly sweet, with a delicate hint of spice". Plenty of caramel malts and very faint spicing that becomes a bit more obvious in the aftertaste.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Old rating. Over spiced for a summer beer i thought. Big malts, lots of cinnamon and spice. Some vanilla and citrus, less drinkable than I'd want.

Old rating. Bottle from old town. Aromas of vanilla, cinnamon, orange zest with a slight hint of malts. Taste is more of the same with a spicey finish. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a copper colour without much head and no lacing. The overpowering flavour is vanilla then citrus, almost like a ceamsicle. There is also caramel and light spices. Very creamy but not too sweet. Nice

a clear amber-gold thin white head lasts for quite awhile. Taste is some bread and a touch of caramel, with some fruit as well.
