On tap at Town Hall Brewery.

A -Poured a clear, copper color with a one-finger, off white head of foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of Thanksgiving spices - nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon. It had a sweetness that resembled pumpkin.

T - Good blend of spices and pumpkin like flavors. Light caramel taste.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a tasty brew. My first Indeed brew. Very good!

Serving glass: Poured from large bottle into Imperial Pint. (Update: happy this is canned now)

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.

Sweet Yamma Jamma, Indeed Brewing Company, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

"We chefed up something special for fall with Sweet Yamma Jamma, a spiced sweet potato ale. Brewed with pulverized sweet potatoes, candied yams, and a special blend of spices, Yamma Jamma is full of flavors and aroma that pair well with fall colors and crisp nights. 5% ABV, 10 IBU, Style: Sweet Potato Ale.

Lightly hazed, copper-y, amber coloring, under a full, flush, stable head of off-white head.

Aroma: sweet and vegetal, little hops, much malt. Some spices, but which exactly, I'm not sure. Maybe cinnamon, allspice, a touch of clove? The fruit is biggest, though.

Taste: Mmmm, yeah. If I didn't know what this was, I'd guess it was a pumpkin ale, because the flavors are so similar. Large, plump, lush flavor of the gourd, whether yam or what have you, it's big and in it deep.

I know what people may be thinking: Oh, my God, a Sweet Potato Ale, that's got to be weird, right? I've never heard of that, it's unfamiliar, I'm scared, oooo….Ooooo!
Yeah, that's how they talk, that's how they are…

But, this…this is nice. Here's a way to celebrate the season without being a conformist. I like that. I was skeptical, as well, about a sweet potato ale, but the drinking quits all doubts. Yum. Sweet, but not too much, good balance (I think this will be a common thread with Indeed…with some exceptions…), and utter deliciousness. Mmmm, tasty. I could drink it and drink it.

But, not 9% alcohol, that may be where they went wrong, he asks, facetiously.
