3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Two fingers of head with good retention. Cloudy, dark straw colored body.
Smell is a nice citrus and pine.
Taste is fruity (orange, lime, pear) with a sweet bitterness. Interesting and complex.
Crisp texture, moderate carbonation and medium body. A little sticky.
Enjoyable, a kind of IPAish winter warmer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a small fizzy white head. The nose is lightly hoppy with pale bready malt and some light honey like sweetness. The flavor is not all that different from a run of the mill APA, except for a bit bigger body and maybe a hint of alcohol. Lightly citrusy hops that finish a bit short for me. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. An OK effort I suppose. But nothing that stands out all that much.

Bottle. Clear red orange pour with a bit of white head that dissipated quickly. Floral, fruity, malty, pine. Medium body with good carbonation. Syrupy and bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle from Brewdog Online Shop. Pours clear golden amber, small white head. Aromas of orange and caramel. Taste has more of the same, quite a bitterness to it. As another reviewer says, more of a strong pale ale or IPA than a winter beer. Not bad though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle). Pours a orange light amber complexion. Nicely unfiltered and filled with orange particulate. The flavor is well balanced with malt, hops and orange zest with understated alcohol. A perfect winter selection. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with frothy white head. Very slight flora aroma, but not much of a scent. Taste of earthy hops and citrus. There were no spices typically associated with winter ales. Very mild aftertaste to offset the hops. A decent beer.

Consumed an entire 22oz bottle. Poured a slightly orange color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma was some nice citrus notes, malts. Grapefruit, floral. Citrus, biscuit malts. Pretty tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Pours a cloudy dark amber color with a moderate off white head on it. Nose is a little hoppy, with only some slight floral notes coming off it. Taste is a little sweet with some slight caramel bits in there that offset the hoppy bitterness well. Not spiced heavily like too many winter ales are. Pretty good.
