3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated yellow-orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty and mild spice. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt hops and mild spice. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared by Jerc and Mabel. Appearance: Beautiful golden orange with lots of flecks, small white head. Aroma: Perfume, citrus, spices, rusty with cardamom and coriander. Flavour: Spicy, warming, alcohol, mint, sweet with bananas, a little odd and muddled, not bad though with a long yeast and spice finish.

Hazy golden orange poor. Lots of visible sediment. Frothy head dissipates rather quickly. Sweet caramel aroma with a sweet dried fruitness as well. Some spice of cinnamon.MMmmm flavor is just as nice. Lots of caramel banana sweetness, boozy, spice cinnamon and nutmeg. Very very yummy Christmas treat.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep hazy orange with slight amber hues, thick white head, lots of lacing, lots of yeast floaties, despite efforts to minimize with long storage to settle and only 2/3 pour, so I just poured the rest in. Aroma of yeast, bread, very highly spiced, clove, and a decent alcohol smell. Flavor matches well and makes for a nice warming, but refreshing brew. Swirling the glass made for nice carbonation release the entire drink long, released lots of aromas. Quite nice.
