Winter Seasonal 2011. Nameless winter amber is just in time for the cold Texas months. Without using any added spices or herbs, this warming ale delivers a complex and yet surprisingly smooth flavor profile. Hopped up with six different hops in all the right propotions, nameless will keep you guessing and keep you drinking all through the winter. IBU: 28.4

Mora2000 (6155) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2012
On tap at the Draught House. This was listed as the Nameless Amber, and the Circle website calls it the Nameless Winter Amber. I guess it is the same thing. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma has some caramel and toffee notes, as well as a lot of grain. The flavor is a little better, but still fairly bland. I get some sweet caramel and bread notes, as well as a little bit of fruit - mainly cherries. Still, there is a husky grain quality that I am just not digging. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Slightly hazy golden with a small off-white head and spotty lacing. Caramel and grainy. Thin mouthfeel. OK.

kidmartinek (4687) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2012
This beer is the color of old banana in a blended. It’s cloudy and brown. It pours with a small tan head that dissipates quickly but he carbonation holds a thin film of foam on the top. The aroma is of malt with a little Carmel and bitterness. At first taste the palate comes off sharp and this continues through the pint. The flavor is malty mostly and a little bitter but not much can get past that sharp bite which extends into the finish.
