COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Toffee brown, medium-bodied, with a creamy head and an aroma of raisins and freshly baked dark bread. Mild Winter’s rich caramel malt and spicy rye flavors are sure to take the bite out of whatever Old Man Winter brews up for you this year.

I got this courtesy of my pops. It pours a reddish amber with a small white head. I think this is a solid, no frills, refreshing ale. It’s not mindblowing, but I don’t think it was meant to be. Would be great with good pizza, or a burger. Good stuff. Cheers!

Reddish-brown pour with an off-white head. Rye aroma with notes of toasted malt, caramel and bisquits. Taste is dominated by the rye which is ok with me, especially the aftertaste. Very easy to drink.

RichardW (1370) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2010
Bottle, via Beers of Europe. A strange beer, not entirely sure what to make of it. Reddy brown appearance, very faint burnt roast malt flavour, hints of caramel, with some earthy and grassy notes and a reasonable hop taste. Detected some chocolate late on, just to add to the varying characteristics of this brew. Dryish mouthfeel and finish, but a fairly rounded beer and quite English in style.

Darkover (1512) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Aroma of grainy and caramel malts. Clear brown/amber color with a small tan head. Flavor is lightly bitter, lighty sweet and a little hoppy. Ok

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 19, 2010
Draft. Pours deep red, with a thin white head, nice lacing. Nose is soft and spiced, cinnamon and cloves. Palate is smooth, sweet, and well-balanced, neither overly spiced nor too sweet, mildly smoky, plenty of fruit. Decent.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Draft. Pours a dark brune body with an off white head. Dry spiced, rye, seeds, chewy tawny nutty tones with some more rye. Dry nutty with a light spiced profile. Nice.

Tap at Rattle n Hum: Rusty amber pour with a fading head. Has a toasted nutty aroma with some husky character- one dimensional. Light and dry body with a toasted crystal malt flavor. Quite nutty and husky with a touch of late dark fruit (not sweet though). Simple, but decent sessioning.

wyzzywyz22 (1881) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2010
Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. Poured a clear browny amber colour with a , restrained off white head. Understated aroma, that showed traces of fruit and malt. Rye is evident in the flavour which was lightly spicy and slightly sweet. Nothing particularly outstanding but perfectly drinkable.

I really liked this ale. Pours dark amber with off white, thick frothy head (reminded me of how a dry stout looks, but wrong color) Arouma is spice and bready. Sweet roasted caramel malts, nuts and very lively peppermint and spice. This would be blah, but nice smooth mouthfeel and I’m really digging how the mintiness brings out the sweet malts without being overwhelming. Ends on a nice spice and hoppy finish.

Grabbed a bottle at O’Hare airport during layover. Sure my plane was already boarding and sure it was 9am but still I was on my way to Vegas. Amber red color very tiny head, pleasant enough to get me through takeoff. very drinkable winter lager which is why they call it mild i guess
