I don’t usually like winter beers, but this one wasn’t bad at all. A bit too nutmeg in the aroma, and too much cinnamon in the taste. A little thin and overcarbonated. No fruitness, which makes me happy, and nice and light on the hops.

Nice deep color, the spices were very apparent, tasted a lot of cinnamon among other spices. A little too fruity for my liking, but I guess that’s what you have to expect in a winter brew, but an overall good beer.

Somewhat over spiced. Much nicer than last years but still to much cinnamon. Nice beer for the holidays. Just need to force myself to drink the rest now

Nice aroma sweet and spicy; Deep clear copper color, Tasty beer, the nutmeg is a nice touch to this winter beer. Palate was average, would have preferred more body. Overall a good beer.

Better than previous years. Lighter in color (light copper) and body and thankfully not as much cinnamon. Nice nutmeg taste (which I like more than the typically burning cinnamon). Nicely done although hardly a winter warmer. More like a fall chill buster?

A great Holiday beer, Gets me in the Christmas spirit with the herbal spices.

Norton (329) - Southside, Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2001
Has that generic aftertaste that all Harpoon stuff has. Smell is best aspect of this. I find it extremely filling which is a huge turnoff for me. I could care less if I ever have another.

This is not nearly as well-made as its sister brewery’s Wassail Ale, by Catamount. Aroma is perhaps a little fuller than the Wassail, but that is where the advantages end. This beer seems to have that stale, oxidized hop flavor found in many mediocre microbrews. The finish is somewhat thin, but has a noticeable cinnamony bite.
