3.23/5 rDev -2.1%
From the bottle marked F15-282. Sampled on January 16, 2014.
It has a copper-orange pour with decent clarity and a head that whisks away as quickly as it forms.
It smells distinctively English with the roasted caramel malts and a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg along with a pear-like character.
Thin to medium body.
The taste is fairly sweet and caramel like but it is not anything I have not had before. Slightly bitter ending.

It's that time of year again. While I could give a crap about the holidays, it does bring around a new season for beer.
I get a half finger of rather fizzy head over a light copper body. The head is almost completely gone in less than a minute, leaving not even a ring when it finally goes. Not even an attempt at lacing here.
Smells principally of malt, ginger and nutmeg.
Malt and nutmeg open up. Ginger and coriander round it out.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied. It has just a little bite to it, and a little snap on the end.

Pours a clean orange-ish to yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, a lighter gingerbread like malt. In the taste, mellow across the board, with some dry cinnamon in there. A spice like bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry cinnamon flavor in the aftertaste. Cinnamon stands out, but still quite basic for an English ale.

3.08/5 rDev -6.7%
500 ml bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear amber/orange color with about an inch off-white head that stayed around for a little while. There's a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice but light, it smells like nutmeg, cinnamon, coriander, and some bready malt. It tastes like bready malt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and some apples. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and has low/moderate carbonation. I think it's an OK brew, but I probably wouldn't buy it again at $4.99 a bottle. Just seems average overall to me.
