COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unfiltered ale is light in color but full in body. It was aged on Hungarian Oak lending a slight vanilla flavor. The use of Maris Otter malt and the low level of carbonation is reminicent of a historic English ale.

Growler sampled on 1/4/07: Pours a hazy dark caramel with a decent-sized off-white head. Has a sweet cinnamon and nutmeg gingersnap spiced dark caramel malty aroma. Palate starts rich and malty sweet with a very nice winter spice balance of cinnamon, honey and ginger. An enjoyable winter brew.

Tap at Opa Opa, Southampton, 20/05/13. Clear golden with a thin off white head. Nose is caramel, biscuit, sugars. Taste comprises caramel, toffee, millionaires shortbread biscuits, sugars, malt. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweetish in the finish. Sub average fayre - too sweet and lacking in balance.

Growler: The beer poured a very hazy copper color with a small off-white head. The was fruity with notes of peaches and browned apple flesh. Hint of wood showed in the back. The flavor was fruity as well. Some more apple flavors. The finsih was semi-dry with a light to medium body. Light spice on the finish with a nice warming sensation.

Draft at brewpub. Pours golden with a thin white head. Not a lot on the nose. Lots of spruce on the tongue. Not a ton of carbonation. I’m not quite sure how strong this is. Solid enough!

Growler purchased at Mass Liquors in Worcester Ma. Pours a mostly clear caramel color with a one finger off white head. No lace. Aroma is light cinnamon spice, ginger and malt. Middle of the road palate with low level carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink. Flavor is typical of other winter warmers, various spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, etc. Not to heavy though which is good. Just a hint of spice to go with a malt background. Pretty good.
