3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours a nice and dark brown color and has hints of cinnamon. There seems to be a lot of carbonation in this one, but it’s still tasty. A little bite in the end but I still enjoyed this one. It’s from Woodstock Inn so you know that there’s quality behind it. Good job.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fresh growler. Pours amber with a thin white head. Smells of apples, lots of pie spices, some underlying hints of pepper and tea. Tastes of sweet apples with a lot of spice. Very up front and cider like but with a nice malty finish and backbone. Very solid beer!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewpub. hazy amber beer with a white head. Aroma is very spicy with strong cinnamon/cassia and allspice with a hint of ginger. There is also a strong fresh apple aroma. Sort of like a warm wassail (but cold... makes no sense, but that’s what it smells like). Flavour is sweet with lots of baked apple and warm spices. Smells and tastes like the holidays... very unique brew that is perfect for these cooler days.
