Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. 09/25/08.
Pours a clear orange amber color with a half finger of beige head. The head quickly disappeared to almost nothing. Aroma is a bit odd. On one whiff I'll get pumpkin, cinnamon, and clove. On another all I get is cherry cough syrup.
Taste is similar to the aroma. Sometimes I get light pumpkin, cinnamon, and other spices (lots of clove). But most of the time I get a gross medicinal cough syrup flavor mixed with band-aids. Not pleasant at all.
The feel is probably the only good part about this beer. It's well-carbonated and not too heavy. No lingering aftertaste, which is good considering the taste itself isn't good. Drinkability suffers for that reason. The alcohol isn't noticeable.
I really can't recommend this. Other reviews seem pretty favorable so maybe I got a bad bottle. But the rest of this one is going down the drain...
