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.

It pours a dark amber and gives more of a dark black to brown body. An inch of white foamy head appears and dies to a half centimeter while leaving some nice speckled lacing coating the upper part of the pint glass. The smell has caramel and fruit up front with a bit of nuts in the background. The taste is the same adding a bit of breadiness to it. The mouthfeel is light to medium with a dry finish. This is a very drinkable beer. Overall, this is a solid beer for its style, but just mediocre to me.

Draft. Clear amber pour, with an off-white head. Bready, light rye notes, fruit, and hay. Fairly light beer, with nothing overly interesting going on. Meh.

scarletfire65 (1240) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2013 Bottle at home. Clear deep amber pour. Minimal head. Aroma is toasty malts, rye, herbal hops. Light bodied with high carbo. Simple flavors of roasted malts, spicy rye, red fruits, grassy hops. The finish is bitter, crisp, and spicy. Good platform for the rye. Nice light winter seasonal.

DSG (9561) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 21, 2013
Bottle. Clear reddish brown color with a big beige head. Malty aroma with rye, caramel, biscuits, toasted bread, some graininess and light fruity notes.. Sweet malty flavor, caramelly and toasty, with rye spiciness, a faint fruity hint and a somewhat bitter finish with some minerally/earthy/metallic notes. Medium-bodied. Not my thing.

b3shine (7397) - Indiana, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle to pint. Looks good; a semi-transparent brown with off-white lacing. Smells of caramel malt, dark fruit, and dough. Tastes like it smells with a nice rye tingle. A decent winter ale.
