Pours a reddish-brown with a clinging tan head. The aroma is both hoppy and sweet with notes of pine, grapefruit, and sugar. Medium, smooth palate. Flavor-wise the brew starts sweet and smooth. I would say there's a touch of sugared grapefruit there. The finish is appropriately bitter with some pine notes. Not a bad seasonal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a clear and somewhat darker amber color with a smallish head. Nose is fairly week, but has some interesting subtle malty notes. Taste actually has a slightly bitter hoppy note to with with some nice malts balancing it out. Not bad.

Wittales (611) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Appearance was clear root beer with creamy off white diminishing 1 finger head, rings of lace. Aromas are sweet cara, 2-row, caramel malts, hints of citrus, spice and pine. Taste follows the nose with sweet irish-like malts and slight grapefruit, lemon and pine. Palate was soft creamy smooth CO2 with meduim body, average length malty, dryish finish. A little to much like an Irish for me...

Nice hop and malt blend but it doesn’t quite add up right. It needs more of... something. Or less of something. Or something.

Decent nose. Roasted hop smell and flavor. Agree with other raters that this is kind of watery. Caramel and pine. Definitely better winter brews out there

has a faint hit of roast in the aroma. Taste is a splash of roast malts blended with a bit of pine hops with a slight caramel aftertaste.

12oz bottle. Like a richer, caramel-heavy version of their ESB. Well hopped. Better than I expected.

Cakes (358) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a reddish-brown-mahogany with minimal head. Light aroma. tastes like an IPA with a few seasons. Hoppy. Not what I was expecting for a "Winter Seasonal". Nothing dramatic or even distinctive. Still I really enjoyed it, and will have it again. I just think that it was mis-classified as a "winter beer".

brokensail (10530) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Sort of a copper colored beer with an off-white head. Some sweet brown sugar and fruit, a bit of water, and slight herbal notes. A bit of citrus peel, sort of watery, and toffee. Flavor is lightly bitter. Mostly sweet toffee, brown sugar, and bready malt. Some herbal and citrus peel hop flavors, a bit of water, and some very mild roast.
