tennisjoel (1161) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2005 Malty aroma. Caramel / Toffee, nuts present. Thin lasting head. Decent lacing. Attractive dark red in color. Would be a little better if a little more hops were present, but this isn’t too bad. Maybe a little sticky on the palate, otherwise pretty good.

Had a spare diminishing head and a light brown color. It was a nice smooth tasting beer with no aftertaste.

twindadplus2 (587) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 4, 2005
Bottle. Brownish red with a medium sized, creamy head. Aroma is a lot of roasted, nutty malt and caramel with a hint of fruity sweetness. Flavor is malty sweet with an acidic bitterness that complements the malt well. Finishes with a nice bittersweet alcohol taste. A good beer worth keeping on hand through the winter..

pinkzambia (1432) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 3, 2005
Bottle: Reddish-brown, somewhat cloudy with a tan, small frothy head and semi-sticky lacing. This northwest winter classic is pretty good. Aromas are characterized by sweet spices like nutmeg and cinnamon, lemony hops, wheat and alcohol. The tastes are at first bitter representing the British hop presence and then it works into a sweet alcohol finish. Btw, the alcohol is 6.2% (perhaps, the stats above are for Utah :)). The carbonation is pretty high and delivers a slight burn. I imagine this is due to the alcohol as well.

marcus (6343) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 26, 2005
This amber ale poured with a modest off-white head. The initial taste was fairly sweet and malty, with a slightly acidic finish. This was a satisfying, but unremarkable beer.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 11/20
Ernest (6153) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, roasted nuts), lightly hoppy (apricot), with a light note of wort. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Not a whole lot going on with this one, and there is a bit of a raw/unfermented worty character to it...homebrewers may dig that smell more than me.
