Nutmeg and orange peel with faint hint of what way in the background. Pale malt up front, but even that is faint.
Mouthfeel: very light on the body, final (FG) gravity-wise. Little to no wheat or cinnamon. But otherwise spices dominate very slightly. Swallows almost as if it’s water. Slight, abrasive abv due to lite malt.
Appearance: tad wheat foggy, very pale gold, big small bubble head in small glass, but goes flat quickly. Pillow head, big at first but fades fast.
Flavor: spices slightly up front with light malt background. Wheat way in background.No hops sensed.
This is a lawnmower beer for a non-lawnmower season. Good, but sell-able? We’ll see. Not impressive. For light quaff, not bad, but boring.
42 and 29 Rate Beer. 79/78 on BA.
Great level entry Christmas beer for those just coming to craft from Bud and Miller. For craft beer folks: not so much… like weak tea.
Welcome to the PGA beer rating system: one beer “Don’t bother.” Two: Eh, if someone gives it to you, drink. Three: very good, go ahead and seek it out, but be aware there is at least one problem. Four: seek it out. Five: pretty much “perfecto.”
That’s NOT Maria Devan. That’s Ken Carman to your left. Can’t you tell the difference?
