Had this out of a bottle, but it is copper in color. No lacing or head retention either. Smells malty, like a red. Tastes sweet and malty. Has a flavor of honey and some clove. A decent session beer for the holidays, but that’s it.

pours a burgundy copper with a medium off white head. Aroma is floral. Taste is bright and hoppy, hint of citrus. Moderate hoppy bitterness slowly creeps in then slowly fades through the finish. Good beer.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mahogany colored ale, fine head that lingers and clings, slightly roasty malty aroma with spicy hops, caramel beginning but strong hoppy bitterness and malty finish. Good but not great.

Pours well, thick-ish dark amber, with medium head.
Its one of those non-traditionals.
For my taste its a bit too hoppy for a winter seasonal.
Apart from that, its well constructed and would siut better with food then on its own.
