A clearish combination of red, brown and amber colors all mixed into one. Not as rich looking as you'd expect, but given it's an American macro, par for the course. The head is a finger thick at best, but lacks retention. However, it leaves a nice creamy top.
I like the smell, it's mostly cinnamon. Actually, it smells like French toast as you get spices and wheat.
Not bad. I like the level of cinnamon, it's just enough to hide other ingredients, but not so much that it burns or kills the profile.
A hint of sweet, then it's mostly spice after that. A bit of tangy in the finish from the wheat. It's only medium-bodied at best, but it's got a filling bready feel to it.
Overall, it doesn't suck like a lot of their other beers. It's not world-class, but it's actually pretty good. Would make a good beer for macro converts to try.
