A drinkable beer. Mild flavors and not to heavy. Good for a seasonal but Iím not crazy about it.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a shaker pint. Creamy white head a top a deep copper colored beer. Lots of lacing around the glass. Scents of toffee, malt, a bit of caramel, and mild hoppiness. Sweet toffee and malt flavors off the bat followed by lasting piney bitterness. Metallic notes are present in the aftertaste. Medium bodied and smooth mouthfeel with a soft fizzy carbonation. Though classified as a Scotch ale, its not all that heavy and feels rather tame. The bitterness is also more present than others Iíve tried. A so-so in terms of the style but a decent beer.

12 oz. Not so good. Average at best. Like a weak lager. Nothing really "winter ale" about it IMO.

Poured a clear amber with a very thin white head. Aroma is caramel, bread, nuts, cereal, herbs, and a faint earthiness. Taste is caramel, herbs, maple, nuts, and cereal. A little too sweet for my taste.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A slightly better than average ale-pours a deep amber color with white head that dissipates rather quickly. This beer does not sit heavily, has a delicate aroma of brown sugar and honey, and its sweet taste has a clean finish.

Pours a clear amber-red with a small off-white head. Smells of bread, nuts, floral. Taste is sweet and mildly bitter, malty with moderate hops. A decent brew but not spectacular.

Pretty average semi malty ale. I could drink a sixes of these during a winter movie.
