3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from sampler pack pours crisp brownish ruby. Aroma is like cinnamon toast. Flavor is very sweet, fairly light, and with quite a bit of cinnamon. Slightly caramelly, and by that I mean it tastes like a caramello bar, not the normal caramelized malts that us beer fans are used to. Interesting, but more of an interesting exercise than a beer I would really want to have a lot.

Bottle. Pours a decent amber with a nose of faint spice and light apple juice. Flavor is a bizarre mix of spice, lipstick, and perfume. (Because I eat lipstick and drink perfume.) Average mouthfeel. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted from a 12oz brown bottle into a snifter, thanks Greg. It poured a cloudy, medium reddish copper color with weak head. Candy sweetness, bread, toast, some caramel, cinnamon. A bit sharp and metallic, which to me revealed its mega-brewery origin. High carbonation, very spritzy, light body. It was tastier than I expected, I’d drink it again. It was kinda cool to taste cinnamon outside the context of the tired ol’ pumpkin-pie-beer craze.

A light-bodied amber. Good carbonation. Aroma and flavor of light spice and rich malts. Well balanced and easy drinking. Spice is not over the top. Lingering roasty malts.

Lager glass. Clear leather brown with a fizzy head. Smells of cinnamon, reminds me of a gingerbread man. Interesting taste of cinnamon and other spices. Finishes clean.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle at Andy’s promotion party. Poured a deep reddish amber with a fizzy off white head. Aroma is over spiced with cinnamon and winter spices dominating. Not quite sweet enough to be a cookie aroma but more like a slice of spiced toast. Medium watery body with fizzy carbonation and a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is the same as the aroma and loaded with cinnamon and spice over toast. Drinkable but can’t see having more than one or two of these.
