brokensail (16222) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 14, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear amber color with a short lived off-white head. S: Not too shabby of an aroma. Lots and lots of spices, mostly cinnamon and all spice with a bit of nutmeg and clove. A slightly sweet malt note, maybe even a touch of vanilla. Surprising... T: A definite vegetable/squash type flavor to it. A decent spiciness of cinnamon and all spice. There is a little bit of banana to it, interestingly. Maybe a touch watery, really my main knock on it. M: Light in body with medium carbonation. O: As much as Id like to say otherwise, this was pretty decent.
