16 oz. pour, on tap at Busterís on 28th. Consumed on 11-4-12. Pours a mostly clear copper with a slight haze and a small amount of beige head. Aroma and flavor are sweet and feature marshmallow, sweet potato, and pumpkin elements. Medium body. Lively and frothy in the palate. The beer is essentially an amber ale with a touch of organic sweetness.

c/o mnmike. Thanks again!
Aroma - it could be that the aromas are very similar between sweet potato and pumpkin, or it could be the spices used in pumpkin beers and this beer are the same, but Iím picking up the same nose as I would in pumpkin beers Iíve sampled.
Appearance - body color is an rusty/orange color; the liquid is hazy, with good nucleation; the head is beige and about 1 1/2" high and quickly rings out
Taste - is very distinct, the beer has a small spice profile associated with pumpkin beers. Itís a subtly sweet and somewhat elusive, itís malts donít hang around long. Itís pumpkin-like, which I assume is sweet potato.
Palate - body is near medium; the texture is between medium and thick; carbonation is nearly lively; the finish has a unique effervescent and holiday like spice quality about it.

Basted a turkey with this.. Best as a cooking beer, but it drinks thin with some astringency.

Can courteay of TheHoff43: Mild allspice aroma. Cloudy ochre, medium yellow head. Very little flavor, slight astringency. Malty tartness toward the back end of the palate. Definitely unremarkable when sampled cold or quaffed. Disappointing even for the style.

Murky off brown pour with a quickly dissipating tan head. Smells like sweet potato pie very sweet with a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon. Thin palate. Flavor is mellow like a sweet potato pie limited spices a vegetive quality. OK but Iíll skip it in the future.

6 pack of cans from Falls Liquor, Minneapolis, MN. Pours a cloudy, dark apple juice color, almost grapefruit. Thin, carbonated mouthfeel. Slight taste of pumpkin pie. Overall, a very drinkable beer, but slightly watery; could use more hops.

Can from Adam. Thanks for this extra! Pours a......screw it, I drank it from the can at my kidís third birthday party. Aroma is a faint pumpkin spice with some clove. Taste is a average to slightly above average fall seasonal. Easy to drink and I liked the lack of sweetness. I could drink a couple of these at a Fall picnic.

Pour out of bottle, thanks Jeff! Dark reddish brown pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, nice cinnamon, nutmeg, earthy notes into a slight pumpkin note, slight grass and spice. Taste brought nice sweet caramel, toffee, nice earthy notes into a spice middle, some pumpkin hints of cinnamon, ginger and clove, hints of grain, finishing fairly sweet. Pretty nice.

12 ounce can thanks to Ryan. Pours a clear dark copper color with a small white head. A somewhat odd spicy and seemingly sour nose. Similar flavor: big sweet potato, spices, a light acidic lemon, some mellow toffee. Pretty nice. Very definable as a sweet potato.
