12oz, best before April 2011.
Pours an attractive, crystal-clear dark amber, with a small head. Good bits of lacing, though the retention could be better.
Aroma is malty, with hints of yeasty spice.
The spice flavors are very subtle; however, this begs the question, why even brew with ginger and cinnamon if you can't really detect any in the finished beer? Toasted malt notes complement a tangy hop flavor. Not too sweet, which I appreciate. The carbonation is medium-low, and the finish is smooth.
This is a balanced, drinkable beer. Nothing outstanding.
