This one pours a very cloudy and light tan color, a bit of a dirty color compared to many other types of beer, more like a dirty iced tea. THe head is a light tan that is very thin and short lived with little lacing.

The nose is alcohol and malt with a hint of sour, grapes, bread and cardamon and apples. Interesting but not compelling and dominated by the alcohol and off balanced.

The taste also has a sour note that exists throughout eh palate.that is quickly overcome by alcohol and notes of nutmeg, coriander and bread.

The moutfeel is the most redeeming quality here with it being rich and full.

OVerall a rather disappointing selection that is off balanced and in need a scrapping. They should start this one over from scratch.

A: If I remember, a dark golden brown. (This was the other night...).

S: Pleasant honey spice aroma. Smells great!

T: Interesting. Honey, spice, clove, a lovely tartness, some citrus fruit. There is this mustiness to the beer that really makes it interesting.

M: Medium body with a nice carb bite.

O: Glad I got this on tap. Very pleasant taste and very original.

Another very solid offering from Lakewood. This one is much more than a credible interpretation of the style, and I would definitely recommend checking it out. Pours a bright golden amber color with lots of lacing. Smells sweet, malty, and slightly spicy. Taste is sweet, honey, and spice, with a bit of an alcohol burn (though not unpleasant by any means).

Definitely very curious to see how it does with age (the brewery recommends trying it aged as well), as I believe it would enhance the complexity of the beer.

Overall, another very solid effort indeed.
