3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can obtained from Meijer in Westerville. Sixpoint Global Warmer is an amber brew with a decent head of white bubbles. Nose is a nice hoppy citrus with a touch of pine. Taste is a nice hop punch of pine with good slightly sweet medium roasted malt rounding out the taste. The body is medium and lively. A very nice winter hoppy amber brew. I hope to score a bit more before it disappears for another year.

Can, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a light red color with a big fluffy head and lots of lacing on the glass.
The aroma has that fruity hop on toasty malt on toffee thing that I hate in Imperial Red ales. This one is a little more charming because the hop character is very fresh & bright with a good bit of citrus and a little melon.
The flavor has that fruity hop on toasty malt on toffee thing that I hate in Imperial Red ales. This one is a little more charming because the sweetness is kept in check and the bitterness that is absolutely necessary in a beer like this is actually pleasant as apposed to abrasive. The hop character is mostly grape-fruity with a bit of pineyness, the finish has a nice lingering bitterness. The booziness is chilled out.

Pour out of can, clear red pour with white head, aroma brought grass, slight orange, hints of grain, husk, touch of caramel, slight spice. Taste was pretty standard amber hopped up a bit, some grass, citrus, touch of spice into some caramel, toast, slight earth, finishing bitter, slightly dry.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours from can a beautiful reddish amber with soapy off-white head that looks frolicsome but doesn’t last long except for a wee bit of lacing.
The initial aroma is off-putting: pine, earth, soap, grass, salvaged by a hint of malt. As it warms, the nose opens up considerably to citrus and even peach.
Unfortunately, those more positive notes don’t turn up in the glass, where the flavor remains resinous pine oil, dank hops and the occasional brief burst of malt sweetness that does not mesh well into the prevailing bitterness. Thin bodied.
Searching the can for any suggestion of how this is global or warming. There’s nothing other than a suggestion not to use excessive energy through lengthy refrigeration.
Good advice, but just another pedestrian beer from the all you need is bitterness school. Still, kudos to the marketer.

Tall thin can. Pours a clear copper reddish color with a small white head. A big sweet fruity nose. A fresh citrus hop bite, low bitterness, light spices, toast. Finishes very clean and tasty. Awesome brew. Could drink many. Really big for an Amber.

Big initial citrus infusion. Pours dark copper with decent head. Some peel. Some pineapple in finish - definitely in a sudden sharp astringency after bitterness. Tap at Glens.

Aroma is hops and some spice. Light Amber color, lasting white head. Loses points for being a little too hoppy for a winter beer. Also get pine, sourish resin, tar.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 11-25-2015. This canned beer pours a small very fizzy beige head that is mostly lasting, transparent orange body, fizzy, lively, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is citrus, pine hops, very bitter, earthy, fruity, spicy, and caramel malt. This beer’s flavor is moderately bitter, citrus, pine hops, spicy, fruity, and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is lively carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A most quaffable beer with a light bitter aftertaste. The flavor is very tasty and this beer is worth trying. It is a beer that I would definitely partake in again.
