22oz bomber. Side note--the ABV is now at 5.0%, not 7.25% as listed. Poured with about 2 fingers of cream colored head that produces some lacing on the glass. Clear dark gold with some orange hues. Carbonation is clearly active.

Nose consists of ginger ale, grassy hops, and a slight sweetness from the malt.

Taste is ginger up front that transitions into some cinnamon and nutmeg. As this beer warms, I get more of a smooth creamsicle taste.

Mouthfeel is smooth and somewhat light-bodied. Carbonation provides some good snap to break up the creamy smooth qualities.

Overall a nice easy drinking change-of-pace offering for the holidays. Would be good with pumpkin pie. Nothing earth-shattering as far as flavor. Spices are not overwhelming, which is a definite plus.

Tasted of nutmeg, cinnamon spice, and cream. The tastes were unmistakable, and it was pretty fair balanced, but overpowering in those holiday flavors! However, not being much of a holiday beer proponent, I would have like to seen the cream dominate a bit more. Still, cream was in there and that's what made it enjoyable to me. Try it before it runs out!
