Beerhunter111 (6917) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes hell-oranges Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig fruchtig, Citrus, Apfel. Geschmack malzig fruchtig, bitter hopfig, nussig, würzig.

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle. Surprisingly this is amber. Bready malts, oatmeal, hint of toffee, orangey spices - more of a autumn ale than a winter warmer.

oh6gdx (20253) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Bottled (from AbM). Amber colour, small bubbly bubbly head, which disappears quite fast. Aroma is caramel, some wood, mild floral, wooden and resiny notes. Flavour is toffee, grass, mild floral, resiny and herbal notes with some mild wooden and floral bitterness in the finish. Not really sure what makes this a winter warmer... but it’s still a good bitter.

Chelmsford Winter Fest. Clear amber beer. Toffee malt and light hop on the nose. Mild toffee malt base supports fruity hop. Well balanced and well flavoured. Just fruity enough to raise it’s head above the morass of Bitters.

berkshirejohn (4402) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Cask at the Claude du Vall (JDW), Camberley. Amber with a thin white head; grainy aroma; sour grain flavour; with a dry biscuity finish with a touch of ginger. Not very impressive.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2012
The Baron, Hinckley, 03/03/12. Almost lager amber with a loose- bubbled, diminishing top. Watery, aniseed-hinting aroma. Tang of seawater without the salt, mellow orange-accented hop, star anise, a retronasal snort of English shrubbery (privet). Malt finish with a cashew and oatmeal linger of some length. Finally bitter. Clean and decent, although I feel neither wintery or warmed.

maeib (8621) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Eastgate Northampton. A golden beer with a whitish head and lacing. Mostly malty with some oatmeally flavours. A good length. There’s little by way of aroma, but deent flavours. It’s OK. Not a winter warmer but there you go.

Leighton (10542) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2012 Cask at The Archibald Simpson, JDW, Aberdeen. Pours clear gold with a sturedy, pure white foam head. Dry, bready malts in the nose. Spicy flavor, medium sweet, some toasty bread, gingerbread, leafy bitters. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet, lightly sticky finish, with Christmas spices, gingerbread, leaves. Lasting leafy, lightly grassy bitterness. OK.

stravale (2062) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - FEB 16, 2012
Cask @ The Capital Asset JDW, Perth 150212
Light amber...slight haze...thin white head...reasonable lacing
Aroma of light sweet fruity malts...some christmas spices...bit metallic
Taste of sweet fruit light malts...background of bitter hops...a metallic edge increases with the drinking
Palate soft carb..medium body...oily texture. Finish bitter lingering finish with a metallic copper coin tail.
Overall - I think it’s the spices that give this metallic edge which spoils the beer

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 14, 2012
On cask at The Sir Walter Scott. Pours a golden colour with a thick white head. Nice malty aroma of Weetabix, caramel and yeast. Very drinkable with similar flavours and a creamy mouth-feel. Moderate carbonation and lingering malt. Tasty and a great brewery logo too.
