A decent winter ale. Brown color pour with a off-white head. Smell of malts and spice. Flavor is slightly nutty, spicey, and sweet. Not a bad brown ale. I would choose Sam Adams winter over this one.

Draught @ BTAH. Pours clear, dark amber, with a fluffy off-white head. Nose is a bit toasty, just a bit of breadcrust, hint of dark brown sugar sweetness. Hard to get a handle on. Taste is toasty, breadcrust, with a nice lush, slightly roasty finish. There’s a sweetness there from the rye that’s held in check by the dryness. Slight hop character, blends in with the rye. Restrained carbonation, medium body.

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.

thicksuds (386) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 28, 2010
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.

weitz15 (379) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Light, malty aroma. Mahogony pour with a medium frothy white head. Flavor of roasted malts and very light on the hops. Light spice presence, but this would be better with more bite.

On tap. Very mild brownish ale. Smooth palate with a subtle brown taste. Not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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. Itís not mindblowing, but I donít think it was meant to be. Would be great with good pizza, or a burger. Good stuff. Cheers!

mybrainhurts (350) - North Dakota, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Grainy, toasted malts, and sweet toffee aroma. Caramel malty sweet, spice and grains, buttered biscuits, all for flavors. Somewhat chewy mouthfeel. Not real complex but ok.

spilledpint (341) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2011
12 oz. bottle from HyVee Marion Ar: Roasty aroma with notes of nuts and chocolate. Ap: Pours a medium brown with red streaks. Cream colored frothy head lasts a long time. Spotty lace. T: A bit of sweetness up front, but this isnít overly sweet. Nice roasty body with a good nuttyness and some spicyness (probably from the rye). The finish is spicy, with a touch of black pepper along with a moderate coffee flavor. Nicely balanced with a refreshing hop bitterness. P: Medium body with medium carbonation. Nice session body. O: Very impressed. A nice roasty beer thatís perfectly sessionable.

Red-amber. Small, white head. Aroma: Grains, rye, malt. Flavor: Multi-grain bread, rye, hops. Grainy finish. When I think of beers with a grainy taste, I think of some of the worst beers on the shelf. This one is decent though nothing great, just drinkable.
