No one can deny the beer climate is changing. Extreme bittering patterns and massive flavor oscillations are the new normal.

Rcvd in a trade; bottom of the can stamped: "Best before 27Mar2014"; The appearance is a hazy golden amber colored body with a slim one finger white foamy head that dies within about a minute; some adequate foamy lacing that tries to cling but ends up sliding into the body; the aroma mainly bitter, now is that hops or is that just plain bitterness for the most part, to me at least its just coming across as plain bitterness, not really getting much hops for the most part; I will say this, some caramel malts do come out as it warms; the taste is mainly bitter again, and those caramel malts do try to make a presence, but end up making a sly subtlety to help balance it just a tad; bitter dry aftertaste and finish; on the palate, well, its a sort of between the light to medium and it comes across super dry in the mouth and tongue; overall, hey, not a bad American Amber/Red Ale that wants to be an Imperial Red Ale, however, there’s a part of me that wants to pour this into a beef stew, personallly, I think it would be absolutely exceptional in a beef stew

Ron (3104) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Can. Pours a hazy, barely translucent golden with a thick and good head. Aroma is quite hoppy with some caramel and malt in there. Flavor is resiny and hoppy, more like an IPA, with malty and caramel underpinnings. Texture is malty, smooth and lively.

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Can. Pours medium amber with a small white head. Watch out for the chunks on the bottom. Aromas of caramel, piney hops, and a touch of alcohol. Nice balanced drinking here. Citrusy and piney hops throughout, matched with Carmel malts. Bubbly carbonation clean the finish up and make this a sure winner. Yum

I forgot to review this yesterday 1/5/14. On tap Molly Maguires. Poured amber with white head. Aroma of caramel, malts, hop resins, sticky. Taste is wintery and warm, hence the name, a little sticky, no spices, just malty with some grapefruit bitter notes. The mouthfeel is a little sticky and balanced between malt and hops. Good beer

Sorry 6pt, this seasonal feel really short for me: too bitter; not balanced; full on sediment, which is a personal pet peeve of mine. Looks like I’m going against the grain on this one.
