Nice little winter beer my mother in law had waiting for me over christmas. Thanks madre. Pretty deep muddy brown color. Aroma of spice and plums and a little bit of ginger. Flavor was red fruit again, spice and a bit of a chalky texture. At first I got some cocoa but that faded into the spice and malt drink that is perfect for this time of year.

dark cloudy amber, wispy beige head, light malt aroma with traces of cinamon, lots of sweet malt flavor with a candy like quality including a nice vanilla flavor balanced with light spicyness including the cinamon, the spiced are kept very light as to add character rather than take over,

A great beer. Glad to see it in bottles. Pours out a dark brown color with a smaller tan head. aroma is very festive. Has notes of malt, sugar, and cinnamon. Flavor is very much the same with a nice bit of nut meg in there. A great winter ale.

Light brown pour with white head which stayed for awhile. Aroma of caramel and some Christmas spices. Flavor was strong gingerbread spice and cinnamon with slight bitterness. Very drinkable.

Pours amber darker ginger root in color like the gingerbread intentions for the beer with a creamy white head. There is more carbonation than desired in this beer, which you can remedy with a few swirls. The aroma brings sweet tea and sour mix notes, from the spices and orange peel. The flavor brings spices, sweetness, and citrus notes on a smooth cleaner body. The carbonation settles well after all the swirling.

This years batch of Red Nose is much improved over past years. Fully body. More deep malts and less of anisette notes. The spices are there, in the forefront, but no longer beating you over the head. The result is a far more drinkable Red Nose. Nose is also improved. Less acrid. More mellow.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear ruby brown color with thin white head. no lace. Cinnamon and gingerbread nose and flavor. Alcohol is prominent in the flavor and finish. Good winter brew.

Very much like a brown ale with extra spices added in. Sweet, slightly smoky, with reasonable hop character.
