A - Pours a red mahogany in color body with a one finger eggshell head. Not much retention or lacing going on here.

S - Definitely a healthy mix of cinnamon and vanilla on the nose. Like a reviewer below me stated, getting a cream soda vibe here.

T - Vanilla takes over here and the cinnamon goes to the background. The blonde base isn't hidden and a grainy aspect of rice pokes in & out.

M - Light body and medium carbonation. The vanilla wasn't cloying to me, but I could see how it would be for some.

O - Such a fun, easy drinking beer. The Bruery knows how to make an odd mix of ingredients come together and be a pleasure to drink.
