2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours clear beer bottle brown with a small quickly dissipating head, no retention, a few streams, largish bubbles. Sweet malts with cinnamon and nutmeg on the nose.
Attack: 7/10-sweetness, caramel
Mid-palate: cola, cinnamon, hints of ginger, caramel, root beer, and malts
Finish: mostly clean, slightly fizzy, very light malty bitter, just a touch of roughness on the palate.
A very nice and clean brew - nothing spectacular but easy-going and very drinkable.
