bhensonb (14090) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 25, 2009
Bottle from Archer Liquor. Pours dark copper with a decent off-white head. Aroma is dark roast caramel with some non-descript hop. Medum plus body with decent carbonation. Flavor is malty and mildly hoppy. Not a spicey xmas thing, but a tasty drink. Heavy despite the low abv.

hopdog (11560) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2006
12oz bottle. Poured a medium and slightly hazy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel and toasted malts. Tastes of toffee, toasted malts, nuts, and some bread. I was expecting something heavier and darker for a winter beer but this wasn’t bad.

crossovert (11348) - Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2011
12 oz twist off bottle. It pours an amber/orange, like an oktoberfest. The smell is clean with a big grainy smell. There is a hint of diacetyl in the smell, it smells buttery. The taste is very basic, the diacetyl is still there though. It is basic and grainy. This beer is about as basic as it gets, with little flavor. Like a watered down butterier oktoberfest beer.
