Color is pretty amber, minimal lacing. Aroma is floral, like potpourri. Taste is like a hoppy blast in your mouth, and it is not the pleasant kind. It is like potpourri drenched in rubbing alcohol. Good thing I did not have an entire glass of this, but merely stole a few sips from Rustyham.

Rustyham (1732) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2010
I don’t see what’s wintery about this. It tastes and looks like and smells like an American pale ale, like a heavily dry hop Yuengling. Problem is seems like the brewer dropped his clove cigarette in the mash. Not very pleasant, but drinkable. Bottle from J. Barleycorn, Nashville, TN.

Suttree (5256) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Red, verging on orange. Large but fragile beige head. Nicely hoppy aroma - floral and piney, with some caramel in the finish. Flavor is also pretty hop forward, with a little bit of caramel in the finish. Nice resiney hoppy finish.

TomDecapolis (4540) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 27, 2010
2010 draught pour at Stoudts. Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a medium creamy bubbly off white head that laced. Aroma of caramel, nuts, toffee and pine. Flavor of caramel, orange, nuts and toffee.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2010
Clear amber orange, thick foamy beige head. Aroma of grass and caramel. Taste is more bitter but also has a lot of toffee sweetness to balance. The bitterness is grassy and herbal. Light body, lively carbonation. Very mild overall and some funky metallic feeling on the finish.

bleeng (1543) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours bright copper with a nice fluffy white head. Nose is metallic, slightly malty. Taste is very sharp, some maltiness, metallic. hops??? Body is fluffy. Something doesn’t quite fit here-this has the makings of a decent beer but it doesn’t all fit together.

BelgianBeerGal (3240) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2010
12oz traded bottle. Sketchy notes... Pretty nice amber with some winter warmer qualities. A little spice and some decent hoppiness. Fuller mouthfeel than expected.
