Have come to expect lower and lower level of beers from Full Sail, but for $1.00 I keep trying them. This is better than (their) average. As always, under-fermented and really sweat. Some interesting things happen though as the malt gets worked through. Hops are solid but nothing special. I hate bashing the "47 employee owners" of this fine establishment, but this is yet another half-ass attempt.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
On tap at Trumpeter Public House, pours a clear amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out Christmas spices, bready malt and a touch of caramel. Flavour is dominated by the Christmas spices, with dry bready malt on the back. Not the most thrilling winter ale - too much spice for my taste. Itís okay.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Poured clear, thin dark brown with a scant, off-white head that only provided a bit of lacing. The aroma was malt, sugar, light spice and alcohol. The flavor was mild spice, lightly roasted malt and boozy alcohol heat. The mouthfeel was thin and watery. It tasted like alcohol flavored water. Not impressed.

gururyan (632) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Poured from bottle into small yard, clear dark brown, no head. Smoky aroma, woodsy taste. Smells like a grill that needs to be cleaned.

DiarmaidBHK (3527) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Has a faint hint of spice on the nose. Pours coca-cola brown with an inch of white head that doesnít leave a ton of lacing in the glass. Not a lot of expression on the tongue. Finishes quickly in large part because of the watery mouthfeel.

zvikar (3612) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - APR 17, 2013
Pours brown clear with a medium head, aroma of dried fruits, bread, flavor of spices, dark bread and malt acidity medium bodied

Tangy and tasty, spicy and fruity. Beautiful but a bit lacking in flavor.

jimmie65 (330) - Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Hazy brown pour, tan head. Aroma is caramel, not much else. Light bitter. Flavor is caramel and kind of a dull hops. Heavy and oily. Considering the name, I was expecting fruit and spices. Itís not unpleasant, but not that good.

coldbrewky (1457) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Sampler at the Dutch last night. Light hazy brown in the glass. Thinner anemic head. Nose of flat weak malt. Body has an off tang of stale hop that lingers in an unpleasant manner. Glad I didnít pay for this.

Pg 175 on Michael Jacksonís Great Beer Guide. Jackson says this mahogany old ale was inspired by Samuel Smithís Pale Ale..but I dontí taste the inspiration. Instead, I taste an unbalanced bitter oily mixture. The commerical description brags of a blend of imported hops. But this is from Oregon ,why do you need to import hops from the HOME of hops in the US? Alcohol presence is pronounced and unpleasent. Iííll probably let this sail on by.
