Wax sealed 750mL with painted on artwork. Slightly hazy ruby red with khaki foam. Not a lot of lacing. Smell is very gingery, a bit of soy, quite frankly it smells like a carton of Chinese takeout. Which isn't necessarily bad, but now I'm craving some potstickers. Taste is ginger forward with a note of honey. The combination is quite unique and nice. Nice complimentary level of carbonation, and a medium mouthfeel. Interesting beer.

This is a holiday ale with some spicing that is done nicely. Soft ginger and spicing in both aroma and taste, but never to excess but always blended in nicely. The malts are soft and enjoyable. Attractive looks with a smallish darker head and holiday amber body. Nice soft and moderate feel. Enjoyable ale for the season.
Received as a gift. Thanks Sarah and Lance

Poured from the bomber, it produced a big, beige, three finger head. The beer color is a dark amber.

The aroma is of malt, cinnamon, nutmeg, but not very strong.

The taste is similar, but with a light hop bitterness, and alcohol taste. Medium carbonation, and body.

Good beer from Indeed, but not one of my favorites from them.
