3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very nice winter warmer. An Old Ale laced with spices for the holidays. Aroma shows orange, cinnamon, and malts. Pour is mahogany with a small amount of foam and lacing. Flavor is very nice: alcohol heat, coriander, malt, and citrus with hop spice. Palate is just a touch thinner than what I expected, but still very nice. overall, a nice way to break the ice. I think I will have to drop in and hope some is left!
