LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 7, 2008
12oz bottle: Pours a clear medium orange color with minimal alabaster bubbles, mostly around edges of glass. Aroma is of light malts, grass and bizarre spice. Crisp and light bodied with ample carbonation. Astringent/metallic ending.

The beer pours amber with nice notes of allspice and cardomon. These flavors work well with the malt and light hops on the palate and finish in a balanced manner.

12 oz bottle via trade with hopdog, who probably got it from jjpm74, who I traded with before hopdog. Anyway, this beer was very decent with breakfast this morning. Eggs and toast, by the way. I digress however. The pour was glassy amber with almost no head. Aroma was of winter spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon- almost pumpkin ale spiced. Taste was caramel and those same spices. Not a bad beer at all.

hopdog (11551) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with jjpm74 (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly hazy orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, lightly floral and very lightly spicy. Tastes of caramel with a light spicy finish. Thinner body.

Pours amber with a white head. Smells rosey with some caramel qualities. Tastes a little sweet with some tangy notes.

cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 9, 2005
Poured a nice amber with a white frothy head. I found it a little on the sweet side, I don’t know. The first five bottles of the six pack I enjoyed a lot. But when I poured the sixth (not on a row, mind you!) for rating, I found it not as good as I remembered from earlier in the week. A little malty sweet, kind of nutty.

2004 bottle. Dosent pour a pale color. Not at all. Very robust orange-copper color with a small white, lasting head. Light lacing as well. Aroma is a bit off-putting; rusty yeast, some bits of dirty earthy wet grass, lightly sharp notes of grains. Strong scent of dry dog food. As you dive right in, it is certainly a strange experience. At first it tastes like spicy English yeast, but that quickly fades in to a spicy lager bite, mixed with notes of copper, tin and iron. Earthy, graininess, and a lightly dull meat-like quality. A hint of bittersweet nuttiness. Some light hop notes on the finish. Watery mouthfeel, medium-light body. Some breadiness on the end. Not altogether filtered tasting; it may not be the most spectacular tasting yeast in the world, but at least it has a good apparency. Very interesting experiment here. I will agree it shares some common flavors with SA Boston Lager.

Has a nice amber color with light carbonation and a light malt smell. Taste is lightly malted and almost a bit sunked and finishes with a moderate bitterness. Overall this wasn't the better 'winter' type beers that I have had.
