I tapped a keg of this last night before my party started last night in Lloyd Harbor, which is the annual Halloween party for the community. At first the beer was dribbling out and one push of the pump brought it to life as the reddish amber beer was ready to serve. I inhaled the sweet smell of the beer while I was pouring it with a healthy head to serve myself first.
My first taste was a splash of maple syrup with medium weighted malts and a dry finish. As the evening rocked into the later hours, I noticed the beer seemingly tasting lighter on the more refreshing side. The 50 liter/13.2 gallon barrel emptied slowly until midnight as more people gravitated to the regular Spaten Lager we had too.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours translucent amber with 1/2 inch of off-white head that fades to a thin cap on top and leaves nice spotty lace.
Smell is somewhat muted and consists of grainy malt, Autumn spices and faint citrus.
Taste is of grains and malt with accents of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg with faint tart citrus on the finish.
Texture is medium bodied with high carbonation.
A decent, if not remarkable, effort. Easy drinking and sessionable.
Serving type: bottle
