Beer Tasting: 21st Amendment Holiday Spiced Ale

The Beer: 21st Amendment Holiday Spice Ale
Style: Spiced Brown Ale
Reviews: Beer Advocate Rate Beer
Packaging & Date Stamping: 22 oz. brown bottle; no date stamp

From where & how stored: Purchased from brewery in Dec. 2006, transported home by air, and stored at 42F since then

Pricing: $6.00 per bottle

Availability: Winter Seasonal

ABV, IBU, and Other Available Stats: 6.8% ABV
Bryan's Notes
The Look:
- Medium-brown color
- Loose head quick to fade

The Aroma:
- clove
- bit of alcohol

The Taste:
- clove
- carrot cake sweetness
- medium carbonation
- hops not noticeable

The Verdict: An easy-drinking, pleasantly-spiced holiday seasonal beer. Though, my rememberances are of this being better on draft at the pub rather than from the bottle.

p.s. What do you think of 16F weather, an outdoor fire, burning the Christmas tree, and drinking the 21A Holiday Spice Ale. Is there something wrong here???
