Served in a Sam Adams ale glass.
A: Deep mahogany brown. Medium carbonation movement. Very little head fading quickly. Honestly, it looks kind of sexy for a beer.<4.25>
S: Lemon is upfront but not overpowering. The yams come through on a sweet note with the malts. There is a very faint aroma of hops, just bitter. <3.75>
T: There's an earthy malt flavor with just enough bitter hops for balance. On the finish there is a brown sugar kind of sweetness. The root vegetables add a depth of sweetness, it's nice actually. The aftertaste is slightly bitter and has a touch of maple syrup to it. This is almost like a "candied beer", but it's not child's candy sweet, it's a deep sweet, probably from the yams. The lemon blends in really well helping out the hops and cutting the sweet flavors. This is surprisingly good. <4.25>
M: Lots of non-aggresive, small-medium bubbled carbonation. The body is a little thin for the flavor profile. But then again that might be a good thing. I could see this beer bogging my palate down if it had the body of a stout or porter. <4>
O: Surprisingly good for all the strange ingredients. Very balanced, a unique depth of sweetness and just enough hops and lemon to make it very drinkable. I will buy this again next time I see it. <4.25>
