3.44/5 rDev -0.9%
I inherited a bottle because my daughter bought a variety twelvepack of six different and did not like this one.
Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams Nonick.
a: Hazy gold with a finger thick white head which dissipated to thin surface foam and a little lacing.
s: Mild indeterminate spice.
t: Light malt under very subtle cinnamon and perhaps more. Dry finish.
m: Light to moderate.
o: Not bad as a dinner accompaniment (spaghetti and meatballs), but not a whole lot of flavor. The young bar crowd that is not into craft should find this at least slightly different. Probably would be a little better suited as a pre-Halloween offering. By December I'm wanting something dark that tastes like dark beer.

3.5/5 rDev +0.9%
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a light yellowish gold color, with a short white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains a lot of spices, citrus, wheat, light caramelized malts and a touch of hops.
T: The taste starts out sweet with strong flavors of spice and citrus. Then some breadiness comes in from wheat, Belgian yeast and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.
M: Smooth and a little crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, this is a typical Sam Adams spice-laden lighter beer.
