Into a pint glass. Finger of head, clear copper colored body.
Smells like honey and spice.
Taste: a soft, malt sweetness with a layer of moderate bitterness and a spicy finish. Not too bad.
Medium body, moderate carbonation, a little stickiness to the texture.
A descent full bodied lager with some spice to it.

This might be the best beer from the Boston Beer Company. A perfect winter seasonal. Spiced with cinnamon, ginger and a hint of orange, I can't get enough. It's not strong, but the spices do help give the beer a warming property to it. It's a tasty, warming, drinkable beer to look for every year.
