I had this poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a decent looking amber color with a one finger white bubbly head. There was barely any lacing.
The smell had a weird orange aroma to a light spice that I didn't exactly know what it was.
The taste was mainly sweet with that weird spice to it.
The mouthfeel was fairly sharp on my palate with a weird springy spice to it. Dii I like it? Hmmm...well it wasn't exactly the best.
Overall, nothing special, but I guess I could do this again if I had to.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Very light cinnamon amber color. The white head recedes to a fine wisp with no lacing.

Aroma: Brown sugar, cinnamon, faint orange.

Taste: Cloyingly sweet brown sugar, malts, and holiday spices, earthy organic orange peel in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Syrupy.

Overall: This tasted more like a pumpkin ale than an amber.
