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.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 27, 2009
On tap at Johnathan’s Bistro in Appleton, WI. Pours a dark, clear copper with a thin off-white head that left decent lacing as it lingered as a ring. The aroma is very tame with some sweet malts and maybe a hint of rye spiciness and hops, but not a lot standing out in the nose. The taste is slightly bigger than the aroma and has a some earthy hop bitterness up front before giving way to the mild caramel malts. The rye comes around in the finish and leaves a slight spiciness that lingers for a while. The mouthfeel is smooth but very prickly with the hops and rye spices. This is a decent beer that doesn’t really offer anything too original and the rye is really subdued.

On tap at McGregor’s Gates. Unimpressed by this, reddish highlights, clear. Very malty, some doughy notes, along with caramel. not much going on here. So so.

Clear brown beer, modest white head. Crisp palate, semi dry. Malty beer, slightly creamy but with a vague hint of smoke. Finishes softer but still dry. Fresh malty beer. Okay.

A solid offering, though I find it lacks that bit of "bite" that I like to get from a rye beer. Good mild beer as the name suggests.

Ernest (7211) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark amber to medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, toasted grain), with notes of grape juice, cinnamon, dirt. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium to full body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Cheap and clunky smelling, kinda dump bucket-like. Somewhat dirty aftertaste as well. Not very enjoyable.

The aroma is grainy with light toffee, chcolate, paper, and resin hops. The appearance is brown with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with the addition of earth and spice. The palate is smooth from carbonation. Overall this beer tastes cheap and doesn’t work very well for me but is drinkable.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6484) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-brown color with a huge creamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was wood, nut and was fairly dry. The flavor was dry, woody, a bit roasty and nutty with a hint of smoke. Medium length dry wood, nut and smoke finish. Medium body. Eh.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2009
On tap at Maple Tree Inn, Blue Island. Though sampled on tap, this winter seasonal was enjoyed in the last week of July, so certainly not at it’s freshest...Attractive deep coppery pour with light tan head that quickly disappeared. Very minimal aroma: cereal and light malt. The flavor was light spicy rye grain, toffee, and touches of very, very light noble hops. Mouthfeel was pretty thin, just this side of insubstantial.

Deep caramel color, off-white head. Aromas of roasted barley, malt, and prominent weedy hops. Warms without being too heavy. Pretty good, simple, well-balanced.
