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.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Cigar City snifter. Served chilled... Thanks for the can Kim.

A) Deep orange color. Not much head at all, and what was there quickly settled to a thin collar. No lacing.

S) The sweet potato on the nose is rather faint when chilled, so enjoy the nose on this after it warms a bit. A fair amount of one of my favorite Thanksgiving sides is detected, with light spice. A crumbling of brown sugar for sure.

T) The sweet potato is not as prevalent in the flavor, but still noted. A bit of brown bread. A little grass/vegetable. The spices come into play on the backend. Decent, but a little bland.

M) A bit on the thin side, as well as a little flat. A semi-dry finish, which was slightly hard cider-esque.

O) Having never drank a sweet potato ale, I'm not sure if this just set the bar high or low. I think there is room for improvement. I guess in the end the bar has been just kind of set at okay... It was worth a try...

Tasted 25 September 2013. From the can to my tulip.

Pours 95% clear, an enigmatic color, chestnut brown from some angles, a little reddish with light behind it, but different every way I look at it. Two fingers of off-white head. Good retention and excellent lacing.

Smell is full of yams and spices. Never had sweet potato pie, but this is what I imagine it would smell like. The sweetness is subdued, which is good, as yams could be sweet enough to overpower. The yams are clean, rich, and orange - nice. Spice-wise, I get a whole lot of nutmeg, with little complements around the edges that remind me of cloves and allspice.

Taste kinda falls flat. Not terrible, but just bland and mildly bitter. From just the taste, I don't know if I'd even guess this had yams in it. And the spices just barely poke their heads up when the taste is almost faded out. Not much here.

Feel is watery and dull, reminiscent of the taste. Medium-low carbonation (not enough), what's there is sorta fuzzy. Fades out rather quickly.

I wish I'd stopped at the smell. Nothing bad about it, and parts of it are quite good. But mostly, it's a pass.

Had a pint at 3 Squares in Maple Grove. I think this is going to be a once-yearly beer for me. I always enjoy it, but one's enough. It's easiest described as a alcoholic yam soda. It resembles beer, but it's also sort of fizzy yam juice. It's a mild, sweet starchy flavor and I'm impressed Indeed let's the yam speak for itself. But it's a bit odd, with only subtle barley behind the tuber. Give it a shot with an open mind. It's good, but a yam can only offer so much for a beer.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Brown-amber, small head.

Smell: Vegetal, spice, earthy.

Taste: Starts like a malty brown ale, then the cinnamon spice shows up. The sweet potatoes do show up, but more like a complementary flavor than the leading flavor.

Overall: Tried a can to support this local brewery even though I'm not a pumpkin/fall spice/yam beer guy. It's all right, neither the spices or the sweet potatoes hit too hard. I expected a little more sweet potato flavor since it's in the name of the beer.
