12 oz bottle. The pour on this is a clear copper with a moderate white head that fades to a film, leaving decent lace. The aroma is very malty. There isn't a whole else going on. Lots of malt. Maybe a little touch of caramel. The flavor is a little more awkward. There is a dominant malt character and a strange combination of sweetness and bitterness. There is almost a little but of a metallic or plant type of flavor as well. The mouth feel is really thin, and the bitterness hangs around ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slight raisins on the nose. Burnt orange. Not much sweetness, almost "soapy quality. Not very well balanced. Good body, needs more carbonation. Way better winter beers out there.

Bottle from World Market: Not very good. Pours yellow with a fizzy head. Aroma and flavor of cereal.

Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a clear reddish amber with minimal light tan bubbles. Rich malts, wood, earthy hops, fruit, spice and some molasses. Oily texture and moderately carbonated. Ending is warm, malty and sweet with notes of fruit and flowers.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orangish-gold with white head. Taste floral, fruity, sweet. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear deep amber, foamy beige head, some lacing. Floral aroma with hint of caramel. Hops very evident with taste as well. Long finish.

mbgrayson (520) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JAN 22, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2014 Twelve ounce bottle, pours a light copper, with white head. Strong aroma of hops and grass. Taste is similiar, with notes of malt in the background. Not a huge fan of this one. Still, gotta love Big Sky Brewery.

AWMiller (512) - Mansfield, Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Quite the hoppy winter ale with just enough sweet caramel undertones to make for an easy drinker. Having a hard time with the classification of this brew - some sites show this to be a strong ale but it is more along the lines of a hoppy amber ale. I’d recommend some spicy chicken fajitas or perhaps some spicy fish tacos to pair up with this brew.

fiercepanda (505) - Missouri, USA - NOV 5, 2011
A clear red amber beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is herbal, citrusy, and grainy. The flavor is quite floral with some pine and sweet malt taste, but definitely full flavored. Not great, but enjoyable enough.

Orange and rather bubbly. Smells of alcohol, bitter bread. Bitter flavor. Medium body. Not that great...
