A very thick head and a clear amber hue. This beer has a surprisingly spicy sweet kick. The spice flows in the aroma too. In general, I liked it quite a bit...but a little to strong flavored for me. I feel it would kill my palate after one or two.

Not full bodied enough for me. Nice maltiness however which gives it a gran sweetness.

Dawghouse Brewers99 (91) - Exeter, California, USA - NOV 3, 2001
Nice aroma. White lingering head leaves pretty lacing on the glass. A little roasty taste kind of sweet. Clean looking beer.

FUNK (120) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2001
A very good beer. It has a smooth spicy flaver that warms you up after a hard day skiing.

Very good, very spicy and only $6 a six pack.

21iceman40 (1732) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2001
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 Not very strong for an english strong ale. Boring malty flavor. Nothing special here.

A very good winter brew. Not quite up with the Snow Cap, but still a keeper!

Oakes (13303) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2001
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2003 Golden-brown. Toasty, chocolatey, with a floral hoppiness. Body comes up quite empty, though. Toasty, woody notes but not much of that good stuff the aroma promised.

This beer tastes remarkably similar to their ESB, but perhaps a bit sweeter. Nice copper color, fruity and caramel flavor with a slight hop finish.
