Interesting, but just OK judging by my standards. Here goes:

A: Best thing about the beer. Beautiful ruby-amber. Pours a decent head, but this readily dissipates and leaves very little - if any - lacing. Very little carbonation as well.

S: Lots of sour apples - almost like an English cider. Fair amount of cinnamon, brown sugar, and autumn (almost pumpkin) scents, too.

T: Just average. Initial taste spicy (e.g., cinnamon, nutmeg), but this is followed with a boatload of sour apples at the back of the palate.

M: Good, thick and sticky.

O: Decent beer. However, I think this is a good example of a brewer really trying to overdo it (i.e., the brewer tried to make a beer so flavorfully diverse that it backfired).
