2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Caramel color; quickly fading head. Very light spice flavors, barely suggesting winter spices. The only obvious flavor dimension here is sweetness. Nothing that suggests apple to me. Mainstream fizzy palate. Lightly metallic. Mostly drinkable but dull. Bottle.

Surprisingly bland. Exhibits slight apple but aroma and taste need more fruit, caramel and spice.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rather nondescript beer. The flavors have a slight caramel spiciness to them, but it isn’t blended very well. A little pumpkin flavor thrown in. Don’t see the apple.

On tap at Milwaukee Brewfest. Poured clear copper with a creamy off-white head. The aroma was sweet and spicy with nutmeg and cinnamon over some apples. The flavor found nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves over bready malts and caramel-covered apples.. fairly empty when the spices fell off the quick finish. Light-medium bodied with an OK feel through the palate.. too much spicage for me.

Draft. Poured clear orange copper with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet allspice aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth sweet spice flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice darker copper with a large 2 inch head that slowly fades. Taste is of caramel, spice, apple, nutmeg, some wheat and some warming alcohol. Similar aroma. Has a decent body. Better than what I thought it was going to be. Wouldn’t mind having again.
