3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle from LCBO. 5.5% alc./vol. Pours a clear deep amber colour with 1 finger of lasting head. Lacing clinging to the side of glass.
Aroma of malts and caramel.
Taste matches aroma with spicy hoppy finish. Not bad, but nothing spectacular.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and grain on the nose. Slightly sweet on the palate with the spices coming out more as it warms up a bit. Dry bitter finish. Not bad.

Tall draft at Chili's. Darkest beer they have on draft, reddish brown, light tan head. Citrus and spice to the nose follows through to taste, maybe a little orange. Goes good with all the food, always enjoy it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber beer with a medium foamy off white head. Nose of light caramel, bread, and cinnamon, but overall it’s pretty faint. Flavor is a bit stronger with something reminiscent of gingerbread giving way to a mild astringent bitterness before a caramel sweetness re-emerges. Pretty good beer, but relatively mild.

Bottle into pint glass. Pours a clear amber colour with a tiny cap of off white head. Aroma is clean and malty. Taste is malty but not too sweet. Has that Sam Adams taste. Decent.
