On tap at Max's today.

The beer pours a slightly reddish, copper amber color with very light head retention and minimal lacing. Don't get a lot on the nose... just some light clove, honey and considerable spice. The flavor profile repilcates the nose, except there's a bit more too it. The beer is lightly sweet, and the considerable spice counters that sweetness pretty well. Mouthfeel is fairly light, especially considering the 7% abv. There's also a hint of hoppy bitterness as well, that is nice touch.

I don't know. Nothing wrong with this beer, and I enjoyed it. However, I just wish there was more of everything in this beer, and so can't really see myself ordering this again. Not sure this is a beer style that the obvioulsly talented brewer at Evolution needs to puruse.
