Poured into tulip.

A: Reddish brown and slightly hazy. Excellent head formation and retention.

S: Malt and citrusy hops on the nose with an undercurrent of spices (like nutmeg maybe?).

T: Extremely nice malt profile with a strong dose of hops and the finish leaves the spices rattling around on your tongue, but not in an overpowering way. I like this one much better than last year's.

M: Medium body with perfect carbonation level for smoothness in your mouth.

D: With no overpowering spices this year, this beer is a joy to drink!

3.81/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a murky amber color with a two inch head. Lacing lingers on the glass. The aroma and the taste of this brew combines of toasted bready malts, slight fruity hop flavors and some spice type flavor. Medium body with some carbonation. Goes down smooth too. A decent ale, but nothing spectacular though.
