Aroma- gingerbread. Slight head.
Color- clear amber.
Taste- an interesting spiced amber. Reminds us of a spiced winter warmer with a gingerbread cookie. Starts spicy with cloves dominating the beginning with mellowing cinnamon sweetness like cinnamon toast with a faint hoppiness in the finish. Label says it's brewed with saigon cinnamon, ginger, clove, cardamom, and black pepper. 39 IBUs
Tested on 1/25/14. Poured from 650 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass).

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.

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.
