Bison Organic Gingerbread Ale

Label describes this as a medium-bodied Porter but I don’t see it in that light at all – far too light.

Definite garnet color in the pour with a light and fluffy head. Not much lacing to speak of. I’m afraid I simply didn’t get any strong cinnamon, spiced or gingerbread aroma’s or tastes at all. In fact the whole experience was very subdued and a little flat.

Not a bad beer, but rather disappointing, I was expecting a much firmer body and some bolder tastes. Instead I got a drinkable, but light beer, with a little molasses and a dryish background.

Very light mouthfeel, the deep color in the glass is a little misleading.

I read the reviews of this before I drank it and was expecting a massively flavored beer to come flying at me out of the bottle. Perhaps the hype was just too much, but I felt this was a lightweight brew that missed a chance for something special.
