Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Slightly murky dark golden pour - fluffy white head that leave plenty of lacing. Aroma is reminiscent of a ginger bread cookie. Flavor has some horehound candy notes, and some gingerbread. Mouthfeel has a nice creaminess to it.

Poured into a stone pint glass golden orange,obvious bottle condition with yeast floaties,moderatemedium carbonation. thin head but frothy ring. Weak aroma of mild hop possibly but probably spice.Slight breadyness/malt. Taste is a typical pale clean crisp light carmel,sweetness,mild breadyness,spice is an obvious flavor and fairly major for taste with ginger and clove it seems slight cinnomon maybe not.Yeah some peppery ginger.Kind of a roasty finish with the bittering maybe just a mild harshness from the spices thoughFinishes mildly bitter but with spices more.Not bad for a spiced ale,not one of my favorates from them.

Aroma is citrus, cracker-like malts, and either spice or vegetables. The flavor is heavy on the spice and citrus, with vegetables creeping in. This, unfortunately, is another holiday ale that has a vegetable flavor in it; this one wasn’t as bad as others but it still detracted from the flavor and score.

beachbum25 (1086) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - JAN 21, 2012
On tap @ Lures, Crownsville Md-Cloudy amber pour w/an off white head. Spiced aroma. Some spice, some roasted malt, a little sweet, nothing special, but a solid, easy drinking winter warmer. Finish was a little thin, I wouldn’t seek this out as there are a lot better winter brews out there, but it’s drinkable.

Tmoney99 (13461) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle. Poured cloudy dark amber color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid spice and sweet malt aroma. Moderate body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation and small particles. Medium spicy sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid seasonal beer.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. The aroma has spices and sweet malts. The flavor has well balanced festive spices, sweet malts, and a light bitterness. Pretty good.

RolkaNation (141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Bottle poured into dimpled mug. Nice golden color edging its way towards copper. Nearly finger-thick soapy white head thins out mostly but does stick around a good while. Aroma has earthy hops, nutmeg, slight caramel and an out of place funk/barnyard thing going on. Taste is a little better, thin on the palate. More nutmeg in the flavor followed by some hops and cinnamon-laced cloying finish. Decent but nothing special. The spices are pretty solid but not much else there.

Strong cinnamon and a light amount of caramel. Clear orange color with a small white head. Very light bitter beginning with a sweet finish.
