Crisp and clear, copper in color, only a little bit of head that goes flat quickly. No lacing.
The aroma and flavor are really well done. Subdued spices provide character and a warm feeling without overwhelming my palate or my nose. Cinnamon is more evident than the other spices, but ginger comes through too. A prominent malty sweetness is evident throughout, but there is also a dry finish.
Slick and little bit flat, the mouthfeel is a disappointment considering the other solid qualities of this beer. Still, a very nice winter warmer, and no doubt, I will drink this again.
