Canned 08/03/13
Yams>Pumpkins

A-Pours a deep rich amber color with a thin layer of head on top of the beer with some decent retention and average lacing on the side of the glass.

S= The aroma is big on cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. Classic fall flavors. I suppose yams are in the nose as well. Smells fabulous.

T= The taste is amazing. The cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice come through complementing perfectly the yams. Yams come through as a pumpkin would but it's less sweet. I think it's more of a beer type flavor. This beer is fall in a can.

M= Nicely carbonated with a nice lingering flavor.

O= This is the best fall pumpkin/yam beer I've ever had. I would say I'm a bit of an expert on pumpkin beer and this baby blows most of them out of the water. It's sweet without being too sweet and there's a nice roasty malt character that comes in a little to back up the sweetness of the yams.

This is the second year of this unusual yam beer from Indeed. I really wanted to try it last year, but missed it before it was gone. I was happy to find a can at The Four Firkins this year, and might have to try to find more! Made with pulverized sweet potato and candied yams, as well as a mysterious spice mixture (per the website.)

Aroma: Sweet malt dominant, but has some earthy/musty notes. Cinnamon and ginger, but subtle.

Appearance: Deep copper color. Large off-white head that is very persistent. Small bubbles. Very clear beer.

Flavor: Very sweet initially with strong vanilla notes. I get some cinnamon at the tail end. I can actually taste the sweet potato or yams! Ends off-dry but no astringency. I get some caramelized melanoidin flavors. Body is medium, with a pleasant creamy mouthfeel.

Overall: Very well balanced. This beer reminds me of the marshmallow topped candied sweet potato casserole of my youth--in a glass! I think this is one of the more characterful beers I've tried in the quest to drink all these pumpkin/yam beers.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall Summit pint glass. Canned on 09/03/13.

Appearance: Pours a deep caramel amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two fingers of off white head that recede into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell: A fairly sweet, earthy, and spicy aroma with lots of sweet potato and yam hints along with some fall spices. Upfront presence of the sweet potato and candied yams. Big hints of fall spices including cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, pepper, ginger, and slight clove. Sweet malt presence with hints of caramel, biscuit, and yeast. Also some sweet hints of brown sugar and vanilla. Subtle hint of earthy hops. A pretty interesting and nice aroma.

Taste: Follows the nose, an earthy, sweet, and spicy fall taste with lots of sweet potato, yam, and a mix of fall spices. Big notes of the sweet potato and candied yams upfront. Solid mixture of fall spices with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, pepper, and some clove. Some notes of creamy vanilla and brown sugar. Sweet malt presence with notes of caramel, yeast, and biscuit. Slight undertone of earthy hops. Sweet and spicy but very well balanced. Pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, crisp, and pretty smooth. Finishes somewhat dry.

Overall: A pretty interesting and solid tasting brew. Good earthy taste of the sweet potato and yams with a good spice mix. Well balanced and smooth.

12oz can, canned 20 days prior

look is a dark copper/ruby with a small ring of lace, great unfiltered look. no big chunks, just a fine dusting throughout. the aroma is delicious sweet potato at first (and im not even a fan of them), but fades into heavy spice and not much else. taste is crisp and bready at first, a yammy middle, with a thick pumpkin-pie-spice finish... a chalkiness seems to linger on the tongue.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Reddish-orange with nice off-white head.

Smell: Fruity, sweet and nutty. Definitely spices added, such as cinnamon, but can't tell exactly what beyond that. Hints of vanilla.

Taste: Tastes like a pumpkin beer, with that sweet nuttiness. Lots of spices on the finish - noticing cinnamon, clove and allspice. Dry and spicy, but not at all bitter.

Feel: Relatively light body with moderate carbonation. Despite the sweet core, there is a lingering firm and dry finish.

Overall: This is essentially a low abv Pumpkin Ale, which is usually a pretty unexciting style. However, Indeed does a commendable job of elevating this beer. Great, easy drinking fall beer.
