Tasted on tap at DTM’s Bday. I was surprised by this one. Nice and smooth, this brew had notes of brown sugar, cloves and nutmeg. Not overpowering and very balanced beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Westwood Location. Sent in a picture to be uploaded. Pours with a small, off-white head that fades and a clear very deep copper body. Decent lacing. Aroma of allspice, cinnamon, and wheat. Overall pretty weak aroma. Taste is cinnamon, allspice, brown sugar and sort of a lager crispness/yeast profile. Light astringency from the spice. Mouthfeel is water like and thin-ish.

On tap at Chino Hills location. At first the beer was quite strange. A good amount of initial flavor that faded into a weird nothingness. However, it did seem to get better. The spice/clove/cinnamon that you would expect with an ok malt backbone. As for the style, this was probably at least average.
