On tap at Pizza Plant. Nice looking head on grapefruit body. Lace down the glass as I drain a nutmeg, cinammon mix, cardomon mix. Sweet and a little light mouthfeel. Not tremedously drinkable but hits the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample from growler at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 08/02/2012. The beer pours a dark reddish-amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of spices and malt. Medium body with a strong potpourri of spices up front, primarily ginger and nutmeg. Some bready malt in the background, and the spice diminishes in the course of a few drinks. The finish is sweetly spiced with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.
