(Bottle) This ale isn’t that bad. It tastes similar to Pyramid Snow Cap, most Stone brews, Bass, and other traditional ales.

Draft: Had a amber pour with a nice head. Though dissapated quickly for me. The aroma was very nice and smelled... wintery (not surprisingly). Taste was nice, but perhaps overstaying its winter name.

Bottle. Pour hazy amber a little bit of maltiness on the nose with a hint of coriander spice. Malts are balanced with nice bitter hops on the palate but the body is not as big as I would like. Decent brew.

Smells like a good beer, malt, hops, a bit of citrus, Looks like a good beer, dark with a medium head. The taste however was a bit lacking. Initially it was nice but the finish was bland and a bit metallic.

Egg white type head, very dee copper color. Very fruity, hoppy aroma, hints of dry-hopping. Nutty, malty flavor with a hop flavor and lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. More in style with a thinnish IPA than an English Strong. Good beer, though.

12 oz bottle. Poured with minimal off white head leaving some lacing. Deep amber color with nice hop and malt in the nose. Citrusy hop and dark malt flavor with more of the citrusy hop aftertaste. A nice winter ale.

Ouch! This beer was very sour and bitter, but not in a good way. Not the best winter ale, for sure. It has the dichotemy of being kind of spicey, but flat at the same time. This beer has the base elemental tastes the Chinook uses, but the Chinook has a better hop aroma, more intriguing quality, and definatly more substance to the flavour.
