From a bomber
A- Murky amber with a white head. It looks a lot like apple cider
S- Love this! Lots of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and allspice.
T- I really like this. It is very spicey, with notes of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. It would make a nice holiday beer. The beer gets a tad bitter at the end.
M- Decent, good carbonation. Slightly astringent.
O- Awesome! I don't find too many spiced beers that are pale; usually can only find spiced stouts. This tastes great, reminds me of Pumpkinator's little brother. I would definitely get this again.

Appearance: Dark brown shows some murky soft light when held to my monitor. Manages to hold on to a halo of brown foam but only tiny spots of lace.
Smell: Heavy pumpkin pie spices, so heavy they scare me a bit as they overwhelm all but a hint of malt sweetness. Some clove comes through.
Taste: Thankfully the spices don't completely overwhelm the brown ale base that gives enough sweetness to cut the heavy handed spices. The base is a little thin for the load it carries but does the job.
Mouthfeel: Little flat, big watery body, thin profile with a slick oily finish.
Overall: I'd like to see the spices dialed back, or the base volume raised to allow some aging potential to let the spices settle down. But as it stands it's a pungent, tasty brown ale.

Poured from a bomber into a Samuel Smith pint glass with a moderate hand. This bad boy survived the flight back from Dallas in the suitcase, despite TSA's best efforts to disrupt my well-engineered anti-shock system (read: wrapped in underwear). No date. First sampling from this brewer... Ever! [Confetti]
A: Pleasant chestnut amber with good clarity. 1-2 fingers of off-white head with good retention. Scant lacing.
S: The spices are definitely there. Clove. Is that an actual clove lodged in my nostril? Traces of cardamom. Green pepper corns. Quite herbal. Somewhat medicinal. Eucalyptus. Light bread notes as I get towards the bottom of the glass.
T: Surprising bitterness initially that carries throughout. An herbal dryness is fully established by mid-way. Very dry finish. A slight malt presence arises near the end. The spices are prominent (mostly clove, cinnamon, cardamom) and accentuate the bitterness. The lack of sweetness is distinct.
M: Moderate, rather smooth, carbonation. Body is fuller than the average amber and suits the beer well.
O: I like spices. I like spiced beers. Well, some of them. This one is pretty good. It is certainly amber in color, but the similarity between your garden-variety amber and this brew stops there. This is a dry, herbal concoction. I enjoyed the first pint, but I'd recommend sharing large bottle formats.
