12 oz bottle on a warm, late summer eve. ... the power has just gone out, but I continue under battery power ...

Appearance: large head rises quickly preventing a full pour, but it is rather fizzy and dies down quickly.

Aroma: Modestly pleasing smell but suggests an over-spiced beer. A trace of sweet malts emerges through the wintry spices.

Taste: Lightly sweet overall, with enough bitterness by the finish to avoid being objectionable. Slightly more spicing than optimal, I think, but certainly not way overdone, with some distinct input from the malt base and the orange peel.

Feel: Lively carbonation; near medium body.

O: bordering on too sweet and too spicy but ultimately not past either threshold. Flavor and fell improved with warming. Enjoyable complexity.
