COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Toffee brown, medium-bodied, with a creamy head and an aroma of raisins and freshly baked dark bread. Mild Winterís 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.

Solid winter beer, nice and malty, but not too thick, surprisingly light for a winter beer, spices present, but again not overpowering, hops present, but very slight. One of the more light and refreshing winter beers I have had, so if you donít want to fill up on your beer this is a great choice that doesnít lose too much in the flavor dept.

Bottle. Clear, light brown pour with a thin tan head. Caramel, cocoa and nutty aroma. Nutty flavor with rye to give it some bite. Tones of roasted malt, coffee and wood are also present. Dry texture with average carbonation. Not bad, but I was hoping for more unique flavors that are present in other Winter seasonal beers.

Pours black with a white head. Fruity aroma, some raisin and caramel notes, however somewhat bland as this brew lacks depth.

Appearance: Dark brown with brown head. Aroma: Some roasted malt notes with a hint of toffee. Flavor: Coffee, earth and toast with little hop bitterness. Palate: Light bodied with medium carbonation. Overall: A good example of a British Mild. Rate Beer Editor - please consider re-categorizing this beer.

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

Pours a darker dull brown amber with a thin bubbly white sudsy head. Smells like an ESB, wet grains, spicy toasted malts, caramel, light floral hop bite. This stuff is very mellow, a rye ESB, softly spicy, softly malty, softly bitter, slightly chewy and bready, light floral hops. Medium/light bodied with sharp carbonation.A really nice balance for very drinkable beer. I really need to find more of this...canít seem to find this in this area very easy.

badwhale (394) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle to sampler cup. Poured a dark orange / brown . Had a smokey flavor, with some hop notes & decent subdued malt flavor. Pretty good, but maybe on the watery side.
