First off I'm not a SA fanboy by any means. So I will review this with an open mind. This brew pours very clean with a nice translucent Ruby Red Body, nice off white/khaki soapy head. Looks like it's up my alley. Time for a whiff. First hits the nostrils with nutmeg and ginger. Second hits of nice warm caramel slightly toasted bread in the backend. This has my attention now. Going in for the kill! This flavor is actually pretty good. All this caramel and toast with spices is just what the doctor ordered. Ginger is pronounced with all the other spices following through. Nutmeg making it earthy and slightly smoked malt to put in that fresh from the oven feel. This finishes slightly fruity and clean slightly bitter. Lingering pumpkin spices with a clean caramel flavor in the aftertaste. The feel is medium-light poppy carbonation.


Overall: Like I said before, I'm not a Samuel Adams fanboy at all. Yet this brew is balanced beyond belief! The reason why I might be enjoying this brew so much is that beneath the spices lays a nice Imperial English Style Amber Ale. I love me both American style and English Styles of the Amber Ales and Lagers. I think they nailed this one. This brew is recommended!
