Spiced/Herb/Vegetable is usually a turn-off for me, but this one isnít bad at all. A little spicy, but more than anything it is perfectly lightly hopped. A great seasonal Ale, if not a little underwhelming.

Aromas of sweet malts combine with cinnamon and nutmeg and precede cranberry hued pour which provides short lived off-white head and moderate lacing. The taste is subdued. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and a hoppy bitterness prevail. Medium body and sharp carbonation. Overall, I would have like to see the spice aspect of this beer amped up. Sadly, the sharp hop bitterness was the dominate taste.

Seems like a rather robust Carmel malt and hoppy amber/red ale base, with cinnamon and nutmeg present but not overpowering. Really like the balance here. Well done."

Itís okay - a little too "aley"; spice flavors are present but not overly strong.

Pours from 12oz bottle a copper color with a light tan head. Aroma gigner and nutmeg. Taste malt, cinnamon, ginger...kind of like a gingersnap.Light bodied. Finish of grassy hops, spice, and some earthiness...maybe pumpkin pie.

I actually thought this beer was terrible. Pours an amber color with off-white head. No spice on the nose to speak of, just burn malt. On the palate it was more of the same. The finish was dirty. It just never sat right with my palate.

It poured a copper color with a white head. The aroma was of caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon and some other spices. The taste was similar with a slight hoppiness on the back end. The mouthfeel was medium with light carbonation. Very nice.
