2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours an amber color with a smallish off white head on it. Nose is rather wintry with a lot of clove coming off this. Taste is slightly sweet with a lot of spice coming off this one. Ok, but not overly complex.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black stamp bottom right corner of the label reads: MFG10212013. Consumed on December 17, 2013. 22oz bomber into a pint glass.
The appearance is hazy golden colored body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies in about thirty seconds, minimal amount of sliding lacing, carbonation is seen bouncing upwards through the body at a moderate pace. The aroma has the normal aroma of a cream ale with some added ginger and malty sweetness, there seems to be some nutmeg thrown in there as well. The taste is mainly sweet through the malt, but the ginger and nutmeg adds a nice festive flavoring that makes this cream ale a bit more tastier than most of its style; super sweet malty aftertaste, slight spicy finish. On the palate, well, its kinda light, pretty sessionable for the most part as most cream ales should be, carbonation is borderline (probably the spices are trying to make it somewhat harsh) but it still maintains a worthy feel of a cream ale. Overall, whoah, where the heck did this come from, a cream ale that shows complexity? Hey, way to go Kassik’s, here’s my pat on the back to you ... well worthy of coming back to around the holidays and well worthy of finally trading one of your beers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Orange hued amber, thin frothy white head, light carbonation, little lacing.   Soft spicy nose, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.   Could pass as a Pumpkin Ale, despite the snowman on the label.   Similar on the tongue, moderately spiced.   Spices seem a little green, assertive, but not too sweet.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Dull spicy finish.   Pretty simple, not too strong, but also not too bright.   Seems more fitted to the Autumn season if you ask me.

Bottle: Poured an amber orange clear with a thin white fluffy head. Aroma is spice and cardboard. Taste is clean with corn and grain, not a load of spice like I would have imagined.

Amber colored beer out of the 22 oz. bottle. Dusty spice in the nose with cinnimon and nutmeg. This is a malty beer with caramel sweetness and subtle christmas beer spices of cinnimon, nutmeg and ginger. Dusty mouthfeel. Okay seasonal.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle. Clear golden amber with a foamy off white head. Aroma of pie spices, graham cracker and light caramel. Flavor is mostly pumpkin pie spice with some light cracker malt. Medium to light body with active carbonation and a long spicy finish. It’s interesting, I taste pumpkin in this even though there isn’t any because of the pie spice. Not a bad spiced beer, very light.
