Great beer. Again, on tap at the brewery. Much better there than out of a bottle. Nice flavor, similar to the brown ale with a more bitter, hoppy, floral taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A real nice hearty, warm flavored beer that is a nice winter beer without the "hot" high alcohol flavor of most heavy Xmas beers, or the overly spiced versoin of other Xmas beers.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Embarrassment of a beer. This is not an ale. Not even close. No head. Flat. Extremely malty. No carbonation. Terrible aftertaste. Zero flavor nor character. It’s like the cousin of Old English but for a lot more. I’m yet to find a St. Arnold that is adequate, if not for Karbach I wouldn’t have wasted my time. I don’t say this often but avoid this beer! Waste of money and time that I will never get back!!!

Toasted malts, buttery and sugary, some nice spices - hops, fruit, etc. Would be nice if it wasn’t so watered down. Too weak.

Poured from bottle. Thanks to JeffE for this brewed. Copper orange with virtually no head. Sweet nose of toffee and malt. Nice finish of fresh berries and brown sugar.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a rich red/brown, carbonated, fluffy tan head; great looking in the glass. Aroma of medium strength, some grassy hops as well as fruity malt. An initial bitterness gives way to sweet, a slightly viscous mouthfeel and warm finish, hops again with some interesting maltiness there, a touch of caramel. Lasts. Quite well done.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of AirForceHops. Nice orange pour with lots of tiny bubbles rising to the top. Biscuity malt nose with lots of sweet fruit. Taste is all sweet malt up front, spice & hop bite linger nicely to a dry, slightly bitter finish. Hard to belive this is 7%. Very drinkable!

Smells like apple juice(very mouthwatering), has a beautiful dark coppery color, and tastes of dark fruits and spices. Overall a pretty yummy seasonal beer from the people down in Houston.
