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.

Pour is a murky looking brown with a average tan head. Aroma is some rye and grain but nothing really stands out. Flavor is again some rye and spice but overall kinda watery and bland. I didnít get a lot of what others got off this beer. A watery brown ale more or less.

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 itís 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.

Brown with a low, but firm head. Nutty aroma - a bit of wood too, not much though. Very sweet to begin with, but the flavours are not very prominent. Roasted malts and caramel, not much else.

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.

Bottled@O Haras, Tampere. Deep amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is mild earth, some fruits, grass and some strange dusty notes. Flavour is quite similar. Not that interesting.

a very average brown ale. Nose a taste does lean towards dark fruits more than a standard brown, but it isnít wow the nose or mouth.

Pours a dark brown with a off white head. Aroma of light roasting and alcohol. Very light flavor, like roasted water. Meh.

Looks like coke in the glass (complete with the bubbles that cling to the side). Good light brown head and good lace. Starts with the typical caramel malt. The hops bitters overtake the sweetness thru the finish. Hops are particularly strong when the beer is sipped. If consumed in bigger swallows, the caramel malt balances better. Overall, very average.
