I can’t believe how much of the beer I have drank and never rated it before. Pours copper with white head. Caramel malt with slight cinnamon and nutmeg spice aroma. Caramel malt flavor with some roasted notes. Light cinnamon and nutmeg flavors with some ginger and orange flavors. A balanced hop finish.

Bottle. A sweet smell. A full (medium carbonation) mouth, medium malty sweetness. Ends with the sweet spice. Not overpowering, but definitely there. Would drink 1-2. A good beer.

Grass and citrus aroma, with hints of caramel. Sweet caramel, honey, and light chocolate flavor, enhanced with mild spices. Elegant, still sticky, finish - I could do with more bitterness.

While far from the best, this is still a classic winter beer. A nice dark amber color, smells sweet and slightly spicy. Full bodied, smooth and not overwhelming.

Dark copper brown. Caramel, bread, grass. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. Quite thin palate. Slightly disappointing.
