1/12/03. Clear ruby amber with a thin, quick white head. Mild hop aroma. Pine resin and hop flavor with caramel and malt. Good flavors to have in a beer but this doesn't come across as a good beer.

Bottle. Well, this was just fine but nothing special. Flavor and aroma wise, it is very similar to Cottonwood’s Frost bite: Hoppy (especially in the finish), citrusy, but no caramel. Nice malt flavor. Cottonwood’s version is just a superior beer.

12 oz. Bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a thick frothy head. Taste is a little bitter and sour, and weak on the palate.

blkitson (158) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2006
This has a very furity aroma. NIce dark reddish brown color with a very nice head. Has a nice fruity taste, but which fruit is hard to distiquish. Very good ale

It had an amber color with a spare and diminishing head. The flavor was very smooth with a taste of coffee.

Clear brown/amber. No head. Mild aroma, toffee if any. "Drinkable", I guess. Mild if any hops, slight metallic flavor. Won’t buy next year.

CigarsLoveBeer (153) - Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2006 Bottle: Amber color with off-white, thin head and no lace. Floral aroma with hints of citrus and pine. Quite apealing. Wonderful spices, citrus, and pine in the mouth, hops present through out. Finish is a little weak, as was the body, but a pleasent pine flavor lingers. I found this to be a very fine beer, just not a very good example of the style.
