On tap @ Southend. Clear amber colored beer with white foam. Kind of your typical spice profile for a pumpkin beer. Really heavy on the pepper and nutmeg. Kind of astringent for my tastes and the mouthfeel is pretty watery. A little bit of black pepper, some ginger powder, and cinnamon sticks. Really lackluster mouthfeel.

Draught. Given the fiasco with their Frostbite spiced beer, I was not expecting much from this at all. Actually, I had forgotten the exact name of that ham glaze brew and was certain that this Harvest Spiced Ale was it. Fortunately, I was incorrect. This completely headless, copper brew is a much, much more subtle example of a spiced brew, but that’s not saying much. I found the notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and other darker spices working in harmony with the thin, bready malt flavor. This isn’t all that hearty, but works well for those SC winters with temperatures plummeting down into the 60s. The finish is a bit papery, but I was more or less impressed with the overall tastefulness of the whole package.
