There is a slightly malty aroma, but not enough with the spices. It pours a beautiful bright amber color. The flavor is sweet, spicy, and malty – a delicious combo; tastes very nicely sweet and spicy – holiday cloves or something of the sort, then calms down on the palate and ends with some smooth booziness . The body is more like an ale than a lager. PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2013
