Clear rusty amber colored head with a tall puffy white colored head.

Smells sweet and sticky with a spicy apple aroma. Slight tart scent this reminds me of my grandmothers apple butter.

Starts out mildly sweet with a strong apple flavor. Slight cinnamon and clove flavors. Slight taste of pipe tobacco. Mild bitterness and a slight brown sugar flavor.

Mouthfeel is full.

Overall a tasty ale and was perfect for thanksgiving. Try this one with hot apple pie,

A decent enough brew, but at 8.5% it might be too strong for some people's tastes.

Appearance – Pours a clear golden color with a very thick head that sticks around a long time and sticks to the glass. A strong amount of carbonation is visible. Lots of sediment at the end of the pour.

Smell – Yeast, a funky spice, and a touch of cider with lemon. Malt becomes noticeable as the head dissipates.

Taste – Cider, pepper, with a slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel – Medium body, good carbonation. Goes down easy for 8.5%abv.

Drinkability – Easy drinking, but a bit cidery for my personal taste.
