Tried this beer at the company Christmas party. Nice event, sit down dinner and band. The main beer choices were Coors Lite on tap and bottled Budweiser. As soon as they got the Sam Adams tap working, I was on it!!!! Appearance was good. I didn'[t notice a great head but it left some lacing and had a nice coppery/caramel color. Could definitely smell the spices, I'm figuring cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavor was nicely balanced between the spices and malt flavor. Nothing too overpowering. The spices were noticible first and then smooth, rich malt and spice flavor. This beer is heavier and has a stronger mouthfeel than what I am used to (lagers, marzens and Pale Ales). It was very drinkable. I would have enjoyed something else to wash down dinner and then switch to this afterwards and just enjoy the rich flavor for it's own sake. I would drink this again.
Serving type: on-tap

Transparent copper color with a thick head with medium retention.
Predominant aroma of caramels and white bread.
Sweet flavor of caramel malt, licorice, cinnamon and just a bit of soap, nutmeg and earthy and citrus hops (maybe just the orange peel). Wheat gave it some good roundness. Mildly dry aftertaste.
Medium body with low carbonation.
Decent beer for who likes malty beers with lots of caramels.

3.56/5 rDev -1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Dark amber color with an off-white head.
Smell: Typical lager maltyness with hints of sweet hops.
Taste: Sweet start with a malty bite and finishes with a sweet/malty/hoppy balance.
Mouthfeel: This is probably the best part of this beer as it is incredibly smooth and well carbonated.
Overall: A good "anytime" lager that isnt too special and isnt too heavy, but very drinkable.
Serving type: bottle
