A shaker pint on cheap industry night at the Oliver location. Nothing like tempting my Christmas hangover for all foods sweet and spiced, as this is dubbed a 'Sugar & Spice Ale'.

This beer appears a clear, medium red brickish copper hue, with one waitress-skinny finger of filmy dirty white head, which leaves a low fuzzy vista of shoreline lace around the glass as it hastily drops away.

It smells right up front of cinnamon, nutmeg, sugary ginger, and allspice - the usual suspects - but well-blended all the same, over a sweet, dessert-quality breadiness, and mild candied fruit. The taste is big on the now somewhat metallic cinnamon, nutmeg, and rather well-named allspice, a middling sugary fruitiness, the cake-like bready malt resigned to the background, along with the weak earthy, leafy hops.

The carbonation is subtle, but stern enough to provide adequate support, the body medium-light in weight, and generally smooth, but for that lingering metallic essence. It finishes a wee bit on the sweet side, as the malt hasn't given up the Ghost of Christmas Present just yet, amongst the still prominent spicy remains.

A decent holiday ale, nicely spiced, and actually more or less balanced. Too bad I had my fill of this particular style a few weeks ago. Scheduling, people!
