The appearance of this brew is a hazy gold/brown color. A slim creamy foam on top which dissipates very quickly. On the smell topic, look out a Christmases dream but it is too overpowering for a beer. Overwhelming hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, which are accompanied by an array of fruity smells. Tasting this beer is a different story, the spiciness completely covers any fruitiness taste that is there, and at the same time covers the alcohol taste. But this beer also has a mild hoppy bitterness present, not too much though. Over all I kind of actually like it, but after a few grew tired of it. It a good beer to have one or two on a cold winters day.

Medium amber pour, small, quickly diminishing head. Aroma is spiced, cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor follows with the same spices. No hops to be found.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - DEC 15, 2002
Good seasonal brew, copper color with a short-lived rocky head. Aroma of ginger and nutmeg(as expected)FULL bodied with thick spiced up malts throughout. As with most winter seasonals, after drinking more than a few leaves that spice taste in the back of your throat. Could use a touch more alcohol to give the warming effect.

xmandax (130) - Astoria, New York, USA - DEC 14, 2002
this beer tastes like christmas, which makes it appropriate only on rare occasions. very spicy, with not much else flavor. also tasty in a half and half with either a hard apple-y cider or a sweet stout.

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 13, 2002
This beer is so spiced, it masks all beery flavors. Itís essentially like liquifying a gingerbread man and drinking it.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2002
Very nice looking ale with the scent of cinnamon potpourri. Mildly artificial taste but decent nevertheless.

aracauna (2994) - Georgia, USA - DEC 8, 2002
Clear red brown, bright. Ok head. Aroma is lemon pepper and mild pumpkin spices. Flavor is mild spices with sweet malt. Itís far from over spiced, but lacks a bit of fullness in the flavor for a good winter.

jbak (111) - Torrington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 7, 2002
Nice crystal clear copper color. Smells of nutmeg, ginger and a hint of cinnamon. Very spicey taste with nutmeg and cinnamon dominating, not enough malt presence. Very thin head and body. The spices are a little much but overall a very tasty holiday brew.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2002
Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is mostly nutmeg and cinnamon with a slight malt aroma present. Spicy flavor of nutmeg and cinnamon that is in good balance with the hops and malts. The spices do dominate, but are not too much.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2002
Has a slightly cloudy amber color and smells like a ginger bread. The smell continues into the taste and finishes with moderate bitterness. Overall not too bad as the taste is not too strong of spice. It is a good fall/winter beer.
