Pours a medium amber. Aroma is light caramel and cinnamon. Tastes lightly malty and then the cinnamon gets you. It would work as a thanksgiving beer, but it feels out of place in a winter sampler pack.

Bottle. Poured a medium amber/reddish color with minimal white head. Aroma was spicy with some ginger and cinammon. The flavor followed with a bit of maltiness and perhaps caramel. This was actually pretty decent. I’d probably get it again. drdisque (882) - Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle from sampler pack pours crisp brownish ruby. Aroma is like cinnamon toast. Flavor is very sweet, fairly light, and with quite a bit of cinnamon. Slightly caramelly, and by that I mean it tastes like a caramello bar, not the normal caramelized malts that us beer fans are used to. Interesting, but more of an interesting exercise than a beer I would really want to have a lot. jbuzz (838) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2013
a very suprising beer. nice pumpkin pie like spice, not overly so. very good dessert beer. JK (6280) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Surprisingly good. Brown color. Aroma of nutmeg and malt. Flavor has cinnamon and nutmeg with malt.

Bottle. Pours a decent amber with a nose of faint spice and light apple juice. Flavor is a bizarre mix of spice, lipstick, and perfume. (Because I eat lipstick and drink perfume.) Average mouthfeel. Meh. Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Dark amber pour with light head. Strong cinnamon ginger spice. Light bready malt.
Light body, gingerbread caramel.

Tasted from a 12oz brown bottle into a snifter, thanks Greg. It poured a cloudy, medium reddish copper color with weak head. Candy sweetness, bread, toast, some caramel, cinnamon. A bit sharp and metallic, which to me revealed its mega-brewery origin. High carbonation, very spritzy, light body. It was tastier than I expected, I’d drink it again. It was kinda cool to taste cinnamon outside the context of the tired ol’ pumpkin-pie-beer craze. MaBeer1972 (2152) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 17, 2012
A light-bodied amber. Good carbonation. Aroma and flavor of light spice and rich malts. Well balanced and easy drinking. Spice is not over the top. Lingering roasty malts. beaz1591 (238) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Lager glass. Clear leather brown with a fizzy head. Smells of cinnamon, reminds me of a gingerbread man. Interesting taste of cinnamon and other spices. Finishes clean.
