Copper pour thin head at redhook. Crisp clean hoppy and bready with a nice finish. One of the best at the brewery.

UDBeernut (1824) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2012
6 pack picked up at the local beer place. Pours a lovely tan color into the pint glass. Capped by a small off white head with good retention. Clear with good bubbling carbonation. Nose is sweet with malt, caramel, orange zest. Taste adds grassy and floral notes, toffee. Light tannin. Leans to the sweet side this one does, but not cloying. Medium bodied, alcohol is slightly warming. Enjoyable. Rated via BeerBuddy

Bottle. Colour... basic amber with a moderately frothy head. Nose... generally roasty and somewhat nutty with hints of hops. Palate... more of that basic roastiness with caramel and some hop notes followed by a somewhat dry finish. Not what I’d call a "strong ale". This one seems more like an autumnal session beer.

Copper-amber pour into thick beige head that dissipates into sticky lacing that slowly melts into a swirling pool of foamy bubbles. Aroma of malty biscuit, grassy hop, and lemony citrus. Initial flavor of malty citrus that quickly fades into a bitter spruce finish.

BroSpud (1726) - , Massachusetts, USA - FEB 6, 2012
12oz stubby shaped bottle. Pours amber red with a white head. Taste is primarily caremal malt with just slight a hoppiness. I’m trying to taste the spices but can’t find them. Overall nothing great but quite drinkable.

Pours an orange color with white head....citrus bitterness and a honey like sweetness on the palate. Love the design of the stubby bottle and label.

Orange colour. Hoppy aroma. Bitter first, then sweet, a touch watery. Enjoyable.

LetsGoState (603) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Appearance is a small white head with deep amber color. Aroma is a sweet caramel. Taste is plenty of spices and malt. Overall pretty good winter seasonal.

Bottle. Pours a deep amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Hoppier than I expected for either an English strong ale or even an American winter warmer. Some roasted malt, bit of citrus, but not much spice (which is fine by me). Not bad -- but not exceptional either.
