Quick: poured a pale gold color with minimal head. Smell was lychee, tropical fruit and cinnamon. Taste had cinnamon come up first and persistent to me. The lychee was nice, but was matched by cinnamon. Feel is medium with good carbonation.

This was okay, but I think the cinnamon got far too prominent on it. I would have enjoyed it more if it were tamed down a little.
