This is the creepiest beer I have ever had. The combination of it being served warmer than the others in the flight, the fact that it had fizzy head and also has a vaguely gross "old apple juice" flavor makes for a rather unsettling sip. All in all, the old windowless rusty white van of beers.

i really dig this brew here. a well americanized take on a classic english stye.. caramel in color but nice and clear, and having almost a full inch of soft white head. the nose smells like desserty english malt, while the yeast is a burton or something similar. whats unique about this is the flavor in the middle. it has an almost holiday spice cake character, where cinnamon seems obvious, but maybe some molasses and clove too. not over spiced,or even spice per se, but that complexion is there for sure, before its all cleaned up in the finish. loading this much flavor and character into a beer with such low alcohol is a feat, unforced and natural in this beer, and very impressive. clean finishing, plenty of body, and the kind of beer i could gladly have several of given that its both sessionable and different. well done here by rogue, i prefer this to the massive imperial version.
