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.

Looked great! Poured a brilliant, mahogany brown and produced a creamy, 1.5 inch tan head, that slowly subsided. Some decent malt in the nose and suggestions of hops. Faint hints of cocoa and spice? Medium-light body. Surprisingly short! Some lingering bitter notes. Not much malt on the palate. Light, fresh, and mild. Not as dark as expected. Some lace develops. When looking for a Mild Ale, I will look elsewhere next time.

Mediocre toffee colored pour. Tastes like it looks, which is simple and forgettable.

Nice deep brown color....spicy molasses aroma...sweet up front with a hearty finish. Nice.

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.

Reddish orange in color with a tan head. Chocolate, toffee, spicy rye aroma. Carmel, bready, spicy flavor. Okay beer.

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 (1323) - 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.
