bottle thanks to Crusian... light copper body, light watery tope head... nose of light caramel with a bit of bo, amazingly, better than most xmas beers... the taste is malty with a touch of spice, not bad but boring

Kinda lame. Pours a deep amber brown color. Smells like malt and stale hops. Taste is like an american amber plus some strange spices. Weak ale.

Didnít like this so much. Seems to have some sort of Koelsch yeast maybe? Some popcorn in there with a weak body and not much else going on.

Bottle. Copper color. Rich and malty with a touch of smoke and some dark red fruits. The smoky burnt malts come through too much in this beer.

This beer pours a deep amber color with a thin tan head leaving no lacing down the sides. The smell is kinda of musty, like an old ale or something. Canít really place it. But It is very interesting. The flavors are not very complex but it does have a good warming sensation and spicy mouthfeel to it. This is an intriguing beer! Cheers

Saint Arnold great beer hall please do not drive to Houston to ser it you will love it. Except you have to go only at tour time and pay $8 to get in...Then if you like barrel aged beer as I do you have to pay $10 more. FORGET IT. Cannot be that good.

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. Itís like the cousin of Old English but for a lot more. Iím yet to find a St. Arnold that is adequate, if not for Karbach I wouldnít have wasted my time. I donít say this often but avoid this beer! Waste of money and time that I will never get back!!!
