Reviewed from notes.

Pours out a dark brownish-amber, with a fairly stable single finger of sand colored foam with minimal lacing qualities.

Smells of gingerbread, cinnamon, and orange peel, taste runs through each of these elements in reverse order as the nose. First some orange peel, a burst of cinnamon dust, and than gingerbread. As it warms, it gains a graham cracker-like quality to the malt. The body is unfortunately somewhat watery, thin, and fizzy.
