bought this as a one-off - just before thanksgiving.

(having it right after a nice spiked egg nog)

a CLOUDY - some off shade of pale yellow. the head was white and wispy - almost like the head on a 7 up.
barely any lacing.

S not liking the smell - seems a bit "stale" no discernable hops. Im not finding the cinamon other reviews have mentioned, really nothing here that I can name.

T hand in hand with the nose - hard to put any name to it but honestly I dont like this

M nice carbonation

D - sorry but I have to say DONT BOTHER> this is the worst Ive seen from sam adams
