Geary's Winter Ale is a hearty India Pale Ale; it has a dry maltiness with an intense floral hop finish.

From a 12 oz bottle this poured a dark amber with and off white head and thin lacing. Nose of grainy malts with a hint of floral hops. Body is thin and the mouthfeel is watery. the flavor is an odd bitterness and the finish is dry. This is kind of bland to be called an IPA.

A: Poured with an average-sized, white head that quickly dissipated to a thin film. Body is a dark yellow color, and completely clear. S: There’s a slight maltiness to the aroma, but overall it’s kind of skunky and unimpressive. T: Some malt in the flavor, balanced with a bit of bitterness, but overall it’s quite harsh. There’s something unpleasant that I can’t identify, but it’s what I remember there being in the Geary’s Summer Ale, which is supposed to be a completely different style of beer. M: Medium-bodied, slightly creamy, with average carbonation. D: This beer isn’t that good... I wouldn’t buy one again. Aside from the Pale Ale, I’ve never really had a good Geary’s experience.

Thanks to Susep73 for this! Clear gold pour, fizzy white head and drippy lace. Aroma is grainy with hints of spruce. Body is thin. This IPA has and english feel to it. Kinda boring....

Bottle. Pours clear gold with a white head. Grainy malt aroma with some light notes of iced tea. The flavor has a light bitterness with some grainy pale malts. Decent, but not a good IPA.

obguthr (4903) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Toffee nose with traces of cinnamon. Clear golden, thin white head. The flavor is bready, spicy, and dry. Nutmeg is everywhere from beginning to end, a clever interplay of British hops. Wanting in sweetness, perfumey, and tinny at times.

halfonit (1259) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Has a darker golden color. Aroma is of skunked, hops, and malts. Taste is basically a skunked IPA. Has a lingering unpleasant hoppy taste in the aftertaste. Too bad because I was looking forward to trying this one.

BREWMUSKCLES (2441) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2009
tap for $4 at the rattle and hum nyc. wheaty yet clear in metal taste from the tap that reveals fruit and then good fruit as the beer goes down.orange and sweet with dishwater hops just gets better as you drink it. not an American type ipa by a longshot more refined and suited up. a bit floral more muted in tastes but somewhat layered. refreshing and not bad.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Pours orange/copper with a nice white head. Smells of citrus, dry malt, resiny, spicy. Tastes citrussy and earthy with a nice, dry finish.

Ron (3176) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 29, 2009
A orange amber ale with a thin white head. Light hops with light alcohol notes. It has a citrus flavor with little hops and grin notes. A little watery.

BroSpud (1908) - , Massachusetts, USA - APR 18, 2009
12oz bottle. Not a bad IPA but nothing great and why do they call it winter ale? I was expecting some kind of strong spiced beer not a light colored plainer tasting one.
