CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 7, 2009
Bottle: Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a thin ring of spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of semi-sweet toasty grainy rye notes with some English hops and light grapefruity character. Starts with average fullness and a light malty sweetness with some toasted caramel and spicy rye notes before a grassy hoppy, lightly citric finish. Pretty smooth and drinkable.

jb (2934) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2009
On tap at McGregorís Gates. Unimpressed by this, reddish highlights, clear. Very malty, some doughy notes, along with caramel. not much going on here. So so.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Bottle pours amber red with a decent head that reduces to a surface head of 1/8 th inch. Aroma of caramel, peach, and perhaps nutmeg. The flavor has some caramel and fruit, very mild spice. The palate holds up well. Overall, pretty nice.

shadey (2079) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2009
An draft at MacGregorís in Henrietta. Dark amber. Sweet and a touch fruity. Very easy to drink and quite tasty. It is what it claims to be - a mild winter warmer.

rudolf (2353) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle, Mr. Goodbar Beer Club. Copper, white head. Nose is malt, a little nutty, rye. Flavor is a bit of spiciness nicely balanced by caramel & toffee. Quite nice malty but bitter finish.

blipp (8178) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Bottle. Amber with a thin off white head. Light spicy rye aroma with some light sweeter notes. The flavor is well balanced. Rye notes are up front, but donít dominate. A light caramel sweetness, with some nice spicy hop notes. A very solid sessionable winter seasonal.

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2009
Bottle from Utobeer. Clear deep brown with lasting beige head. Itís a mild. Whoohooo, America made a proper mild!!!!!! Itís not stupid big hop, oh but it is bitter on the finish. So itís a bitter then, so a premium bitter. With some Rye. Mild on the aroma, quite drinkable in the mouth, some cereal and then some moderate hop on finish. Decent premium bitter.

tmoreau (3714) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2009
Poured to a fluted fest glass at Brixieís Holiday Beer Tasting in Brookfield, IL. The color was a brownish amber with a modest, off white foam to the head, and light streaks as lacing. The aroma was a little grain, roasted malt, a touch of caramel, and very light hints of coffee and spice. The flavor was similar, with smooth malt and a subtle hop bitterness to balance. Not a warming winter ale but one to refresh before the snow begins to fly, and after it is gone.

guerinfbfan (110) - Elmwood Park, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Poured a nice deep red, with a large, foamy white head. Smells of malt, chocolate, and i got a very small hint of coffee. Tastes of mostly malt, not much else, and I didnít get any sense of rye in this beer. Nice beer.

TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Tap at blind tiger. Poured a medium amber. Nose was mild with some hints of malt. Fairly bland and easily sessionable. I really didnít distinguish the rye. Itís a pretty simple and fairly plain beer. Not bad but not so good.
