COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

kramer (5005) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Tap, Max’s. Clear light copper body with a small frothy off-white head that faded to a thin film. Nose is very spicy and sweet with a little alcohol. The flavor is equally sweet with a heavy and lingering spiciness. Thick caramel and toasted malt, hard to pin down the spices. White pepper? Medium bodied with super fizzy carbonation and warming finish. Not sure I dig this one. I get a lot of bubble gum the more I have.

keanex (1458) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2014
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Clear and vibrant leaning amber with a short lasting light tan head.
Aroma: Orange marmalade and saffron come through, perhaps ginger and clove. The aroma is mild and pleasant.
Taste: Hints of orange up-front lead to a clean malt base with cinnamon and saffron noted on the finish, though not pungent. Clean with some pilsener malt noted.
Palate: Medium bodied, mild in carbonation.
Overall: Not bad, but lacking character. I would be disappointed with this if I bought it, it doesn’t stand out at all.

solidfunk (4027) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Definitely has a dose of cardamon, but not so much cinnamon or saffron. Amber pour with ok head and lacing. Floral yeast. Light bitter finish with some sweetness. Tap at brewpub.

nuplastikk (4439) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2013
750ml five dollar bottle at Maxs..suspect age. Super hazy unfiltered orange, copper. Big, frothy head. Big on the spice overload. Herbal, flowery, ect. Champagne carbonation is nice, but this beer is sort of unrefined, big and brutal. The carbonation is a little too gushy, maybe mildly infected? A classy spice bomb.

sonnycheeba (3569) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 22, 2012
Tap. Pours cloudy gold/copper with a trace of fizzy, off-white head. Aroma is caramel and cereal malt, oranges, lime, floral hops, and herbs. Flavor is malt forward with supporting light fruit esters; herb undertones throughout with a sweet finish. Light body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.

BeerandBlues2 (9728) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2012
Tap at Brewer’s Art. Pours hazy orange with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is spices, Candi sugar, biscuit and honey malt with fruity esters. Flavor is malt forward with heavy spices, sugar, fruity esters, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body, warmth and carbonation.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
Drake (8613) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2012
C&C 750 mL bottle from State Line Liquors. Pours a hazy copper color with lots of visible carbonation. Large fizzy tan head recedes quickly but a thin layer sticks around a while. Yeast aroma with notes of lemongrass, spices and herbal notes. The taste is caramel, bread, yeast, spice, raisins, wheat, honey, dates. Medium bodied, somewhat chewy, very strongly carbonated. Interesting. I like.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2011
Poured into a tulip. 4.0 A: Well, this is overcarbonated. First pour yielded one finger of beer and five of head. Unfortunately, the retention is really good, so getting a full glass was a huge investment of time. Anyway, lightly hazed light orange color. White head is thick and pillowy. As mentioned, great retention and big chunks of lacing. 4.0 S: Very nice interplay between the beer and the spices. Cardamon comes through the strongest with the cinnamon coming through in a complementary role. It’s hard to tell how much saffron there is in there as the peppery earthiness could also come from the beer. Speaking of the beer, it’s dry, but peachy fruity with a strong pepper aroma. 4.5 T: The taste is even better! A lot sweeter, spicier, and fruitier than the nose. Cardamon and cinnamon go wild, but are within reasonable levels. Saffron is a bit stronger (I think). Lots of peach, funky wild apple, and something almost like chard. Still a bit dry, but sweeter than the nose suggests. Lots of pepper spiciness and a pleasant yeastiness. Very good. 3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Too much carbonation, but I probably didn’t need to say that. Reasonably creamy and smooth. 4.0 D: Good beer that would have been more enjoyable without dealing with the carbonation. Still, I can deal with the carbonation since the beer is this good. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-08-2011 23:13:37
