Slubgob (181) - West Hartford, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle into tall goblet glass. Hazy light yellow,quickly dissipating thin head. Cinnamon and nutmeg on the nose but light. Similar in mouth, hints of lemon under same spice profile, which lays over the top rather than really being integrated. Maybe they had some leftover spice mix from a pumpkin brew? Good enough but no great shakes.

Hangover (1056) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Cloudy orange pour with a huge white head. Sweet, nutmeg aroma. Flavor is of pumpkin, nutmeg and light cinnamon. Suppose there is a hint of citrus but the nutmeg and spice is strong enough to keep it muted. Seems pretty artificial. Nothing special. Good line of IPAís from SA but this is mediocre.

12 Fl Oz bottle @ Courtyard Marriott Atlanta. Pours a hazy yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is spice (nutmeg, cinnamon), fruit, and chalk. Taste gentle sweet fruit, cinnamon. Light body, smooth with a medium spice finish.

12 oz bottle from Country Club Liquors. Nose is grassy hops, oranges, cinnamon, and white bread. Murky yellow with a medium pale yellow head. Flavor is light sweet, nutmeg, and a white pepperiness. Pretty decent!

topherh (1911) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is citrus, cinnamon, some nutmeg, and light wheaty notes. Flavor is mainly the spices, a little bitterness and some citrusy flavors.

dp (608) - uniontown, Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2012
malty aroma, out of bottle so unable to give appearance rate, lightly sour, lightly bitter, light sweetness, wheaty for an Xmas but like it, lively, a "light Xmas Ale" makes sense. enjoyed it

boomerbrew (143) - Texas, USA - DEC 10, 2012
12 oz bottle mix pack - very pleasent aroma, some malts and the citric from the orange peel. clear straw with no head but did retain some head retention for what little there was. I donít mind the cloudyness as expected for non-filtered brew; what got the below average score on appearance and palate was the missing CO2. Pleasent taste, wheat was obvious with some of the orange peel, but really didnít notice the cinnamon or nutmeg. This was almost like a Hefewiesen. Overall pretty good, maybe just the bottle leaked the CO2 or otherwise might have reach 3.2 overall avg.
