papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - NOV 22, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2003 The pour is ruby amber with an average off white head. Nose is light with hints of caramel and spice. Flavor lightly sweet with a hint of burnt caramel followed by some light hop spice and a dry lightly bitter aftertaste. Palate is kinda thin, but this is a tasty English Ale.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Aroma is dominated by spicey, sprucey English hops. There are some fruity esters in there, and just a hint of malt as well. Ruby-amber in color, good clarity, with a wisp of white head (bonus point for the cool bottle). Piney, grassy hops in the flavor with just enough malt to support. Slightly bitter overall. Medium-full in body. Great example of a classic English-style winter warmer - basically a bigger ESB.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - NOV 18, 2003
Ruby color with nice big and creamy matte white head. Excellent lacing and lazy carbonation. Smells kinda bitter and floral. Flavor is malty with some bitterness. Body is slightly watery.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - NOV 5, 2003
Big soft fluffy white head, A faint nutty malt, citrus aroma. A hoppy bite in the intitial taste. Medium bodied for a winter warmer. A tart bitter aftertaste. A fair seasonal.

AlabastorJones (810) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Kind of thin and light for an english strong ale. Dark Amber/brown with a khaki head. Alcohol is present in the flavor and the aroma. Slightly nutty malt taste. Good but nothing spectacular.

Reid (2067) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 2, 2003
A most attractive ale in the glass nice garnet colour with a large off white head that stays.. Very nice fruity aroma.. malty mm nice sweet creamy malt taste at first then a almost IPA like bitterness as the hops spring out of no were..then a rather nice mellow alcoholc warmth in the throat. Very smooth on the palate..nice Quite drinkable tonight ..theres a wee bit of chill in the air and this goes down well.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2003
This was truly a pleasure to drink, never gets too xomplex, but has a nice mellow balanced flavor, with an incredible malt backbone. A truly great seasonal.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2003
A good winter seasonal with a nice wide range. Well-married elements of ripe cherry, malt, floral/fruity hops, and spice.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2003 Big head, nice dark red color. Smell is a little sweet, a little weaker in flavor than most of the NW winter beers, just a hint of caramel and cherry.
