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.

Pours more of a dark golden color then amber. The head dies pretty quick with a spot of lace here and there. The smell is a very light carmal, strong citrus and kinda just plain. The taste is a little better, a little more toasted malt with a stronger citrus taste. Mouthfeel is thin to slight medium. Not very great but I have no problem drinking it.
