3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I missed this one last year so I bought some as soon as I saw it. It has a nice caramel-red color with a bubbly malty, sweet cereal smell. Nice big mouthfeel, taste is weird, malty, malty, malty. Coats the tongue really well, some mild spice in the back.Canít really detect hops in this one.

The best part about winter is the seasonal brews!! Pours a deep amber with little to no off white head. Nice spicy, hoppy nose. The flavor was hoppy, spicy, malty wintery goodness. Great brew!!!

Tap at the brewery. Pours a light golden amber with a nice off white head. Aromas of caramel, malt, and a bit of fruitiness. Flavors are sweet malt, fruits, and a decent hop finish. Medium bodied. I used to really like this beer, but either I or the beer have changed.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at the brewery. Poured a deep, clear tan-amber color with a thick beige head that left good lacing. Toasty aroma with hints of toffee, nuts, and an ESB-esque minerally, earthy hoppiness. Smooth, lightly sweet entry with some toasted malts and undertones of soft caramel, toffee, and a light nuttiness that is taken over by a moderately sharp, minerally hops that finish with a light sweetness. Moderate carbonation with a decent hop bite, but still a tad watery. Not a huge fan of the abrasiveness present in both the malts and the sharp hops, but still an alright beer.

Sweet caramel malt and pepper nose. Deep amber color, foamy head. Resin chocolate sweetness, good bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation, lemon burnt toast finish. Solid beer, reminds me of New Belgiumís 2 below.

Caramel apple aroma. Clear amber in color with a fluffy white head. Beautiful. Quaffable caramel. Straightforward tasty, easy drinking caramel ale. Soft in palate, some fruits mix with caramel malts, slight English hops and a quick finish. A very nice drinker.
