A: Hazy copper brown with a huge white head. Good retention.
S: Initially weak aroma picks up as the beer warms. Nutmeg and nutty/caramel malts, maybe faint hops. Somewhat herbal – something here reminds me of some of the small batch root beers I’ve had in the past.
T: Flavor matches the aroma. Soft maltiness, spices – nutmeg and?? As it warms, some brown sugar and nice nutty malt show. Light earthy bitterness on the finish. Very mild and restrained, overall.
M: Light bodied with soft, fine carbonation. Slightly dry finish.
Had this on tap and from bottle last year and was enthused to hear about the 6 packs this year. However this batch seems to have less intensity of flavor (though it did improve quite a bit near room temp). Not sure if adding more malt would obscure the intended sweet potato/yam flavors, but would like to see a bit more body in this one. Still, it's a something I'll grab in the future when I'm in the mood for a light and fairly unique fall seasonal.

Poured from tap into a clear pint glass at the Indeed tap room.
Appearance: Pours a nice clear amber color with a nice one finger white foamy head. Foam fades quick but leaves some nice sticky lacing.
Smell: Sweet and malty with a little spice. A little hops underneath. A very welcoming seasonal fall-winter aroma.
Taste: A fantastic smooth and sweet flavor with a nice earthy sweet potato presence. A little hops up front that gives way to the malty and candied sweetness. Yummy!
Mouth feel: Clean and crisp with a nice smooth finish on the tongue.
Overall: I love this seasonal on tap at the Indeed tap room when they have it. I have had several glasses of this during sessions in the tap room, and will look for it again this fall/winter. One of my favorites from Indeed.

12oz can from Powderhornphil (thanks man!). Canned 9/3/13. Served in my Phish snifter.
Pours opaqe orangey russet with a half finger of near white head. Wispy retention. Very little lace.
Smells basically like sweet potato pie. Baked yams and autumn pie spices. Meh.
I rather with the taste followed the nose. Instead I'm getting a blandish yam soda. Yam, caramel, vague spice character and artificial sweetner. Yuck.
Thin body with excessive carbonation that further lends to the impression that this is soda instead of beer.
I rather enjoy the occasional pumpkin/yam beer but this is far from my preferences. I poured half of the can and will decline any future offers.
