yet another winner from 4 hands, this one pours pale orangey in color, glowing coppery, with a finger one white head. the nose is pretty sweet from the yams or sweet potatoes, and there is a lot of allspice in here, maybe some cinnamon too. the flavor comes together well in terms of vegetable and spice, i dont think its overdone, but the spice is very strong, almost peppery at a point, and vanilla sweet in the finish. the yeast also ties the elements together in a desserty but not gimmicky little package. this is a little less subtle than the autumn maple from the bruery, but the vegetable part is equally as fun. it works well. id like to try a barrel aged version of this next year! feel is nice, a little too sweet for me, but the body is expansive in the mouth, and the carbonation is very bright. overall i appreciate the creativity, i might back off the allspice just a hair, but this is a very enjoyable thanksgiving time brew.

I actually prefer this beer in place of the traditional pumpkin/spiced ales of the Fall season. The flavors are much more detectable in this version and the lower ABV helps this. Makes me look forward to Fall, although as I write this, the heat index in St. Louis is 113 degrees.

On tap at Broadway Brewery, Columbia, MO.

A - Poured a clear, copper color with a one-finger, khaki-colored head of bubbly foam. It left sticky rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of allspice and nutmeg. Could smell the sweet potatoes, too.

T - It tasted of spices with nutmeg and allspice. The sweet potatoes actually tasted a little like pumpkin.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is another really tasty 4 Hands beer.
