A very good beer. It has a smooth spicy flaver that warms you up after a hard day skiing.

GoldenSpunky (120) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Beer starts off well with a pleasant aroma of robust coffee and hops and a dark amber hue. However when I took the first sip I definitely got a bitter beer face. This beer is loaded with hops but the bitterness overwhelmes with winter barley flavor that could have been a saving grace. This beer would only be satisfying only someone with dulled taste buds from years of smoking cigars.

mothman (120) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Poured into a Sam Adams Sensory Glass. 2008 Style. Color is a light carmel brown. Pours a decent head that leaves a medium level of lace. Aroma is of piney hopes. Some spices are also noted. Taste is of similiar piney hops. A slight hint of carmel is also tasted. Mouthfeel is smooth, but bitter (due to the hops). Leaves a dry taste in mouth. Overall, a solid beer. I would recommend this winter style ot anybody. Serving type: bottle

Tac (112) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Pours off-white head, coper color. Strong floral scent with notes of citrus. Taste of slightly sweet toasted, caramelish cereal with citrus touch, some feel of lime leaves. Finish is dry.

Coyler (112) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 17, 2013
Donít know if its my cold, but im not getting a whole lot of an aroma of this, slight hop aroma. Nice appearance though, nice foamy head, lovely red amber colour. Much lighter in taste than i expected, feels very light around the mouth, bready, biscuity flavours.

Nice clean tasting winter lager with a hoppy taste at the begining that changes to a smooth taste at the end.

HoppyGuy (111) - Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear mahogany brown color with a half-inch tan head. Aroma of malt and earth, like a meadow. Nice malty flavor, with a hint of roasted malts and and caramel. The beer has a nice hops balance. I’d like to pair this brew with a good lamb stew or maybe shepherd’s pie.

Definitely pine, slightly like Bellís winter ale but generally nothing special, average, not worth more than $1.00 a bottle.

jennajlover (107) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Poured into a pint glass from a 12 oz. bottle. Light orange with red-orange hues. Nice two finger head from a medium to hard pour. Smell is of pine, citrus, and biscuits and maybe a touch of scotch. Taste is pungent hops and smooth toasty malt...some spice. Good beer

GreatSatanUSA (107) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2002
Was a little bitter for my taste. Donít know what the alcohol % is, but it must be high. I had 3 or 4 pints of this at the sports bar and it hit me pretty hard.
