The Beers of California
Freshness Date: None
A: Deep amber brown with an effervescent head of off white to khaki foam which dissipates to a thin layer that then slowly fades to a cling on the glass.
S: The spice complexity jumps out with highlights of maple syrup from a base of yam sweetness. The sweetness to build as the beer warms.
T: The allspice and cinnamon build as the molasses and maple syrup join in an attempt to bring a balancing sweetness. The yams add a sweet carbohydrate, slightly candied foundation to the brew. There is very minimal earthy hop bitterness. The yeastiness comes through in the end with a moderate amount of booziness.
M: The beer has a light to medium feel with similar amounts of carbonation.
O: The spices shine here but in the end overwhelm the remaining components of this beer, particularly the candied yam presence. The flavors here don't quite combine into a synergistic whole. A laudable attempt at creating a novel fall brew but overall can use some polishing.
