Coaster Critique: SoMe Brewing Cinnamon Toast

On the sixth day of Beermas:SoMe

Name: Cinnamon Toast

Brewed by: SoMe Brewing Company

Style: American Pale Ale

ABV: 6%

Pours a red-copper color with bright golden highlights when held to the light. The beer is crystal clear in the glass, carbonation is visible sliding to the top to support a thick, khaki colored head.

Nose is sweet and spicy like cinnamon sugar, malts come through as baked bread, no hops to speak of.

Cinnamon Toast is malt forward, toasted grains, baked bread a hint of yeast. Initial sip is sweet, mid sip the beer dries out leaving you with a dry, cinnamon spice flavor and a slightly buttery flavor. This beer is light in body with an odd mouthfeel, the spices leave your tongue dry while the rest of your mouth is slick, buttery.

Overall just ok. I like the concept but I’m not sure the beer lands where I would expect a beer called Cinnamon Toast to land, the buttery flavors/mouthfeel also concern me, I’m not sure if that’s intentional or not, it doesn’t necessarily detract from the flavor but I think I would prefer the beer without. The spice used in this beer isn’t overwhelming. SoMe Brewing Company is still young and bottles haven’t been on the market for very long, they may still be in a learning curve.
