I didn’t think much of the ale at beerfest last week in Orlando. It was labeled a winter beer on the table. Not as good as their lager

Bottle. Root beer color with a thin off-white head that fades to a ring. Aromas of roasted malts, pine, and citrus. Flavors of bitter chocolate and orange peel that starts out sweet and finishes acidic and dry for a beer of this type. Can’t shake the hops. Fairly thin mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Hides alcohol well. Good, but not enough malt flavors for me in a winter seasonal, or for an old ale any time of year.

Poured a nice warm brown color with a whispy tan head. Strong bitter smell. Spicy assault that opens up into a bitter body. Very nice.

Bottle: Deep brown with red. Clear. Good light tan head. Malt driven. Slight dank edge like North Coast and Mendocino beers. Dank lees. Cocoa, chocolate. Off dry to dry. Slightly bitter. Medium weight. Reasonably balanced. Lacks depth and length. Easy drinking.

Gorgeous deep amber pour under a thick rocky tan head. I can’t quite pinpoint it, but there is a spiciness underneath the sweet malty nose. The mouthfeel is smooth and slightly thick – perfect for the style IMO. Taste is nutty and roasted malt with a mildly bitter finish, overall a great seasonal.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2003
Dark ruby brown with a thin off white head. A slightly weak malty, nutty, aroma with a hint of fruit. Medium palate with little carbonation. Nice malty, cherry flavor with a bit of pine. Very drinkable, but not very memorable.

Poured a dark amber with a medium off white head. Aroma was of pine-citrus hopps with a bit of malt and spices.. Flavor was heavily hopped up front with a bit of malty sweetness and a pine hoppy finish with some spiciness.
