330ml bottle: 2011 version. This one pours a hazy amber color. There was almost no head on it, and what was there was off-white. This one has a really nice nose. Definitely spicy, with coriander at the top of the list. A bit peppery too. The taste very good. Peppery and coriander notes on top of a malty brew. There is a slight tartness and bitterness to the taste. Definitely some fruity notes, and very complex. A really nice brew.

On tap at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.
Pours a clear golden orange with a foamy bone head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, honey, and slight spice aromas. Taste is much the same with honey and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that smells slightly better than it tastes in my opinion.

Hazy orange,a lmost no foam, and floating chunks.
Spicy smell, strange: cinnamon, corianderm in a strange mix. Decent malty base.
Some sugar in the mouth, but again spices, more strong, for a sweet candy effect, quite tiring, realy.
Light body, the aftertaste starts with a soft sugariness, but quickly overwhelmed by a too strong spiciness.
