12 oz bottle thanks to Beerandblues2. Caramel and apple aroma off this copper pour with a small but creamy head. Flavors were still mostly malty with a touch of hoppy bitterness on the finish. Defintiely had English character. Not bad.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2007

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2007
Pours a tan/coppery color with a light yellow head that I didnít think lasted all that long, but it was right next to the beer that outlasted it. Aroma is light to me, but is fairly nutty, caramel, and buttery. Taste is mostly smooth caramel and biscuit flavors. Not much of a hop character to this finish. Iíd say the finish is most memorable for being NOT dry. This beer could have been slightly fuller and creamier. I enjoyed it, but it was lacking some depth.

Bottle. Hazy copper, medium head, light to medium lace. Aroma is caramel malts, raisons, spicy hops. Medium sweet finish. Medium body.

12 oz Bottle via Arctic Liquors Beer of The Month Club. Pours a semi clear dark amber with an above average size beige head. Not much in the nose, just typical malts and some mild floral hops. Taste is the same with some added toffee, pepper, grassy hops and some nuts. Medium body. Average carbonation.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2006
From a distinctive hop embossed Odell 12 oz. bottle, no freshness date I could find. Fall/Winter í06 seasonal release. Poured a clear, bright reddish amber with a small foamy head that settled into a thin, bubbly, sudsy lacing. Aromas of buttery caramel and biscuits, a light toasted grainy and earthy hops. Moderate carbonation and a malty crisp, creamy smooth medium bodied mouthfeel. Good malty taste with a nice hoppiness, toasted grains and buttery caramel, earthy, herbal hops, a soft, but lasting bitterness, the alcohol is well masked and provides a little kick at the end, and a dry grainy and herbal finish. Easy, smooth drinkability, tasty and balanced, one of the better winter warmers Iíve had in awhile.
