Had this beer on 2/22/1999. Color is a deep amber with good carbonation and a nice head. Aroma is faint, but a light malt scent can be detected. Taste is refreshing and clean. It starts with a medium body that goes down crisp with a light malt flavor. The finish is a nice balance of malt and hop flavor with a nice bitterness. Overall it works well as a winter brew or an everyday Amber Ale.

If you were to eat nothing but Taco Bell for a week, not shower, or change clothes, work out every day for that week, and drain the sweat from your underwear into a bottle. You would have made a bottle of Portland Icicle Creek Winter Ale.

Fruity, holiday spice, coffee, slightly sour. Ok, this is a failed experiment -- the daring all have them. I’ve got to stop here. Avoid this like a store-bought fruitcake.
