3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear brew and has an amber colour. sweet notes almost vanilla and caramel note. more of the same on the palate but light body and almost no alcohol kick. i find it thin and overfiltered.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341ml bottle. Pours clear, dark amber with a hint of tan head that doesn’t really stick around. Very sweet nose of caramel and butterscotch with a maltiness underneath and a little vanilla. There’s a definite green note on the palate with that same caramel and vanilla back. Finishes crisp but there’s a lagery feel at the end.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml brown bottle. Pours out orange, off white head with a tight bead, creamy lace. Nose is sweet, big caramel and vanilla notes. Mellow flavour with caramel and grain. Finishes drier, some grain, caramel. Medium body, average carbonation, pretty smooth and soft, not a bad effort from this brewery.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2015 Clear copper wiht a small off white head. Sweet vanilla malt aroma and taste.Low hopped and softly carbed, a little too flat and oily. Sweet finish. I swear this used to be better. LF (Lagerboy Friendly) 02/24/2015 Apparently theyâ€™ve added chocolate! Tastes better on tap.

341 mL bottle poured an amber color with big off-white head and some fine lacing. Aromas of vanilla and some other spices. Taste is moderately sweet with some vanilla and possibly nutmeg. This is not too bad as a winter seasonal beer.

It’s always nice to see this winter ale back on the shelves in the fall. Very sweet, rich flavour. Caramel, vanilla tones. Rich, smooth texture. At the end of the day, I wouldn’t want more than a few a year. Just too sweet. But it is nice to pick a few up each year and have a treat. But for an everyday beer, no thank you.
