2/01/2014: Rivertown Winter Ale... Pretty appearance, but over-spiced and sicklingly sweet; the cinnamon and sweetness completely override the nice molsses and anything else that might be waiting to be discovered. Draught sample at Rhoererís Tavern in North Bend, Ohio. Rating #49 for this beer.

Pour dark brown with an off white head. Aroma of cinnamon, ginger, molasses. Taste is sweet, brown sugar, ginger, molasses, cinnamon, tastes like a gingerbread cookie. Nice to try but itís too sweet to drink a lot of

bottle - Pours dark amber with a small, rapidly fading head. It has a spicy aroma and a sweet, malty flavor with cinnamon. Itís medium bodied and overall an okay but unremarkable brew.

Suttree (5767) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Brown, no head. Smells like apple, cinnamon, and some other vaguely "winter" spices. Taste is, I donít know, Wassail? Maybe? Lots of heavy, fruity and spicy flavors.

Pours a dark brown with a fleeting white head. Taste is very cinnamon forward with a bit of hop bitters. Worth a try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Attractive ruby-amber body. Thin, eventually oily off-white head. Big spiced aroma. A pretty spot on cinnamon forward winter beer. big and sugary, but also has some really rich malt tones. A solid, hefty Winter Ale. Classic, clean stuff.

Great nose and weird spice flavors (cinnamon) mostly that bring you into an OK flavor and ok palate for the ABV. Overall a cool winter beer!

Bottle. Another weirdly spiced winter ale. No idea why they make these beers

BVery (8912) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle from Lizardville Rocky River. Murky amber pour with a frothy white head. Mostly molasses in the nose and taste, but the cinnamon is there in subtle fashion. Decent fuller palate. Not bad.

Kind of strange. Seemed to have a weird mixture of spices. Didnít sit real well with me.
