UXO (1585) - CANADA - NOV 17, 2016
Appearance: clear medium amber with a thin beige head that retains poorly, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: cinnamon, nutmeg, toffee, cloves, molasses, brown sugar, dark fruit. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-low bitter, mild astringent. (6/10) Medium body tending thin, lively to moderate carbonation, nutty and astringent finish ending watery. (3/5) The spice blend for this might be intended to be ?Christmas? or ?winter? but is in fact reminiscent of any number of typical pumpkin ales - which, I guess, isn?t necessarily a bad thing, but it?s not a particularly interesting thing. It definitely tastes as sweet as it smells, with relatively little little bitterness in the middle. The body tends thinnish, though, so the astringency in the finish tends to be a bit sharp. I think I?d like this more with a bit more body and a bit less spice. (12/20)
