COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true Winter Warmer made in homage of the season: Full-bodied and rich, deep amber in color, crowned with a creamy head, and finished with a mild bitter flush.

A step up from your average Bud but not a very good representitive of the style. It comes of very malty and thereís something sweet in the nose that I couldnít put a finger on and didnít enjoy.

This is a nice clean straight ahead ale. I wouldnít really even rate it as an English strong--itís not very rich or complex, and itís fairly thin for that style. All that said, itís tasty and very drinkable. It pours dark amber with a big three-finger tan head that dissipates. The attack is tart, even a bit to the cherry. Very little finish. Compare it even to some of the more adventurous ambers and it comes up a little tame--hard to knock such an agreeable beer though.

Shag (2655) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 16, 2007
A brown appearance with some red hues present. Some dark fruit and caramel showing through in the aroma. A chocolate, raisin, and caramel flavor to this one. The palate is a little thin and overall it was not very complex. Bah Humbug!

sebletitje (7156) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2009
Courtesy of goodzoid10. Pours amber with tan head. Aroma of fresh piney hops with light presence of caramel malts as well as winter spices. Taste of floral hops and spices with notes of fruits - pineapple / grapefruit - malty with notes of caramel. Not too complex, easy to drink, overall feel was rather disappointing..

More ho-hum than ho-ho-ho, this oneís got enough malt to fit the program, but is not too distinctive otherwise. Goes easier on the spices than some warmers do, so that may appeal to some.

GKillian (525) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Pours deep amber with creamy beige head and foamy lacing. Notes mostly of pine needles. Taste is similar to aroma, though less bitterness than expected.

Fratto (2803) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Bottle from Cavie. Reddish pour with a small white head. Aroma is spiced, a little roasty, and nuts. Taste is baking spices, a little caramel, moss, and molasses. Spices come way out in the finish in a way that I donít really like.

Started off ok, but second impression was not good. There just isnít much of interest happening with this beer. It is predominately malt flavor, with only the slightest complexities. Not worth coming back to. So far this brewer is not impressing me.
