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.

@ brewpub. Good nose, sweet and tart. apples/ cidery. Clear reddish orange color. Small to no head. Sweet bitter flavors. Cranberries, apples, carmel. Medium body, thinner mouthfeel, lite creaminess. Crisp finish. I really liked this one. Very tasty.
