Winter Warmer. A rich, full-bodied winter warmer crafted in the British tradition of holiday beers. This deep mahogany colored brew balances complex fruit flavors with a refreshingly smooth texture.

Pours a deep ruby red with nice head and lacing. Aroma is moderately hoppy with a light ginger and spruce aroma. The flavor is moderately acidic with some notes of hops. The finish is mildy anticeptic but refined.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2003 Sweetish smell, little in the way of head. Lot of subtle, sweet malty flavor with a nice warming alchohol kick in the end. This stuff is really good, just give it a chance to warm up a little bit...

OK first sighting of this classic NW winter brew! Pretty nice warm malty aroma..can detect the EKG hops also but faint. Most attractive looking beer. mahogany..but more like garnet when held to the light..small tan head..that didnt last long. Nice smooth malty beer..thena pleasant bitter "kick" just before it goes down the throat..pleasant warming from the alcohol down to the stomach. This is an excellent smooth winter beer on the palate..quite a drinkable beer for 7.0%..best thing Pyramid does IMO.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2003
Pours ruby, with good head, and decent lacing. Hop aroma with ginger overtones. Again with hop in the flavors, this time a little lighter than the nose. Ginger is more prevelant in the flavor as well as other spices I couldn't put my finger on. This beer is pretty much on par with other pyramid brews: average.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2005 Malt and spice in the nose.The head was short/tan and the lace was sparce/color was a garnet amber.Sweet malt,tease of chocolate and spice,some hops,nice dry finish that lingers.Carbonation is soft and mellow.There is no indication that this was brewed w/any spices.Not bad,not all that great either. Does have some English characteristic at least.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - NOV 20, 2003
A reddish-roasted color. Deep tan head. A nice malty hoppy aroma. Has a nice smooth malty even semi-sweet flavor. Not full flavored but very quaffable. A decent winter warmer.

WabashMan (1016) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - NOV 7, 2003
A nice, dark reddish brown color and small, light tan head start this brew. Nose is malt and spice...nice but not pronounced enough. Flavor starts malty and ends with hoppy dryness...really a very dry finish. Strange at first, but by the second or third sip the beer tends to grow on you. Definitely the best offering I've had from Pyramid.

Dark red appearance with a small head and good lacing. Fruity aroma. Initial taste of red licorice, but the sweet malts soon dominated the medium-bodied flavor. Somewhat spicy, hoppy finish. Interesting range of tastes.
